Amazon Studios is inviting filmmakers to submit what they're calling "short concept videos" that could be expanded into theatrical feature films.
These short films should be 2 to 15 minutes in length, and will be evaluated by the Amazon Studios development staff and considered for option.
The process works like script submission:
- You can submit publicly or privately.
- There is a 45-day option and evaluation period.
- Creators of projects added to the Development Slate receive a $10,000 payment.
So what is Amazon Studios looking for?
Videos that express an idea that’s begging to be seen on the big-screen, in full-length, full-budget form. These could be bold, imaginative worlds, original premises, or unique perspectives. A great concept video doesn’t need to lay out the entire feature film in all three acts, but serve as a solid foundation to build on.
