Amazon has become one of the biggest players in the entertainment industry over the years. First they worked as the best way to sell stuff online. Now, they’re not just selling the movies and TV shows made by others and are just making themselves. Every six months or so Amazon does what they call a pilot season, when new shows are trotted out for the public to vote on. Now, to expand the pipeline and get content even more efficiently, Amazon is going into the writing business. Amazon has free scriptwriting software that submits your ideas directly to Amazon Studios!
The program is called Amazon Storywriter, and it’s basically your standard screenwriting program, but with the added carrot of being able to turn your script in for submission when you’re done. There are categories; TV Comedy, TV Drama, Feature Film, and while there’s a lot of legalese to protect both sides from any bright ideas occurring for multiple people at the same time, it’s also a pretty fun idea to get your script out there in the world. There’s even a Chrome extension for Storywriter for writing on the go and writing in offline mode.
Will anyone ever wade through the slush pile? Who knows! But that’s part of the fun, right?Technorati Tags: amazon, amazon screenwriter app, amazon storywriter, amazon studios, amazon writing app, screenwriter app for amazon, screenwriting, writing
