*NON WP POST* Hey guys, gonna be talking about the almost revolutionary Amazon Studios today, and I have to say, I love the idea.
If you live under a rock, go here to learn more about Amazon Studios.
I absolutely love the concept of constant improving movie ideas before ultimately coming to a ‘perfect end product’ amongst people who watch the film. I absolutely love it. Furthermore, I am a supporter of people being rewarded for their hard work, and I most certainly think that those hidden gems in scripts should really be rewarded by having more people view their hard work.
I am also a believer that what you see on paper, doesn’t necessarily translate directly on the big screen, it is quite simply impossible, so I really like the idea that they will actually have these directors working on a rather small budget production of the film for a public audience before deciding to push through and decide what to do with the script. It is quite simply a great idea.
But I can’t help but think about the cost of failure should Amazon Studios fails. Imagine the cost for the directors, along with the actual script to Amazon if the movie doesn’t necessarily appeal to the public audience – or quite simply – the director does a very poor job of translating the script’s message onto the big screen. So, what happens there? Does the script just go to waste? That’s the only thing that I find slightly odd about the project.
I strongly believe that Amazon Studios will lead to the creation of numerous big hits amongst the public, reason being that it generally has that ‘from the public, for the public’ feel to the concept, with the public adding their own annotations and ideas to the scripts if they prove handy.
So, what do you guys think of it? Flop or hit? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
