Ama­zon Stu­dios

HWM (Singapore) - - THINK -

Break­ing into Hol­ly­wood is no­to­ri­ously dif­fi­cult, but Ama­zon is try­ing to make it eas­ier. Launched in 2010, Ama­zon Stu­dios lets users up­load their scripts, movies and sto­ry­boards, then edit and eval­u­ate each other’s work and ul­ti­mately have that work shown to Warner Broth­ers, which has an ex­clu­sive first look deal with the site. In ex­change for sub­mit­ting ma­te­rial, users give Ama­zon 18 months of ex­clu­sive rights to their work - that means you can’t shop it around to any­one else. De­spite that rather harsh draw­back, Ama­zon has al­ready pro­duced two prime-time shows, Alpha House and Be­tas, both launched last year. This year, it will be pro­duc­ing Re­ally, a new com­edy se­ries writ­ten and di­rected by Dukes of Haz­zard direc­tor Jay Chan­drasekhar.
