Innovating new ways to create video content
Amazon Studios is the original film and television development and production arm of Amazon.com (http://studios.amazon.com). We premiered our first two series, Alpha House and Betas, on Amazon Prime in November 2013 and have many more in development. Our approach to development differs from most production companies or networks in two ways: first, we have an open submissions pipeline.
Anyone can upload a movie script or television pilot to our website. After receiving more than 20,000 movie scripts and 5,000 series pilots online (and many offline through the more traditional process), Amazon Studios now has numerous film projects and television series in development. In addition to maintaining an open submission process, we develop with our customers –the feedback and preferences of millions of customers and films fans at Amazon.com and IMDb.com, solicited through concept tests, Premise War, trailers, elevator pitches and full length test movies, comprise an integral part of our decision-making process at every stage of the development process.
