  1. Amazon has launched Amazon Studios, an online business that invites filmmakers and screenwriters around the world to submit full-length movies and scripts. To start, Amazon Studios is offering a total of $2.7 million to the top submissions received by December 31, 2011, and will develop the top Amazon Studio projects as commercial feature films under its first-look deal with Warner Bros.

    Huh...what an odd thing for Amazon to start up. This sounds more like something Google would do.

    I'm surprised aswell. I don't think we'll have to wait long for "Google View" or some form of attempt. It's getting so crazy with these companys now that they can pump their oversized profit wads into these sort of ventures. It won't really matter if Amazon flops with it either (not with their deep pockets anyway).

    It's just bonkers. :)
