Amazon Studios is looking for movie and series ideas to turn into great entertainment. Creators of projects added to our Development Slate get $10,000 to start. Submit your finished screenplay, mini-bible or concept video.
Amazon Studios is one part open door, one part audience feedback. Input from movie and TV fans is essential in helping us decide which projects to make.
Watch trailers and test movies, read storyboards, and play Premise War: then tell us what you think.
Intuition is the key to everything, in painting, filmmaking, business - everything. I think you could have an intellectual ability, but if you can sharpen your intuition, which they say is emotion and intellect joining together, then a knowingness occurs. —
What Lynch means by an intellectual ability is the skills and techniques of your trade. But what good is skill and technique if the hand that wields them is afraid? Instinct will always conquer fear. Always. When you are on a set, when you are directing your crew, when you are acting, when you are making edits, when you are exercising your craft, when you are following your bliss and you come to that repeated, inevitable junction of making a dangerous choice, then remember this mantra.
Learning to make films is very easy. Learning what to make films about is very hard. — George Lucas (via The Filmmaker Says)
"Always make the audience suffer as much as possible" Alfred Hitchcock
