So last week news broke that Amazon.com was starting a "movie studio" (Amazon Studios: http://studios.amazon.com ) where they would "help" emerging filmmakers by starting contests on their new website for potential prize money and making a studio feature film. Pretty cool huh? Well not so much. I looked closely at the fine print and watched this insane explanation video on their website and felt the uncontrollable urge to call bullshit on this.
I LOVE anything and everything that is made to truly help emerging filmmakers (considering I am one myself) but after looking into this one, it has a number of huge issues that any filmmaker who thinks it over would realize how bad they are screwing over anyone who enters their script, films, etc... So I made this video to help deal my frustration in, hopefully, a humorous light. Steve Greene and I wrote out the script and put it together.
I hope the right people at Amazon Studios see this and are able to make some changes so indie filmmakers won't be getting so heavily screwed by the man!
