Amazon Launches Their Own Movie Studio!

amazon studios launches

How weird would it be if one day we saw the word AMAZON appear before movies on the big screen?

On that note, get ready from some weirdness….

Amazon.com has announced the launch of Amazon Studios, which will be run by users, and will feature monthly contests and lots of community feedback regarding films.

Here's what Amazon is looking to do with the studio:

"[To make] feature films derived from the best user submissions that Amazon Studios produces for theatrical release."

Amazon Studios will have a first look deal with Warner Bros, which means that if you can get people excited enough about your project, Warner just might pick it up!

And if they don't…Amazon can just try to sell it to another studio! Wouldn't you love to see the words "Universal Studios" appear on screen before a movie that YOU made yourself? Of course you would!

If you need even more incentive to take advantage of upcoming Black Friday deals on video cameras, Amazon has announced that they'll offer $2.7 million total in awards to the top submissions they receive by Dec. 31, 2011!

For those of you writers out there who are less-than-gifted with a camera, you'll also be able to submit scripts to the site!

If you're willing to take your chances with the camera, Amazon is currently accepting "Test Movie" submissions, which must be over 70 minutes long, and they can be made from an original script or any script submitted to the site. And no, they don't have to be full budget.

We think this is awesome, and we say you should definitely check out the site, because there are EVEN more contests and opportunities available there for people with talent or people without talent who can fake it well.

We're very excited to see what happens with this site! We have a feeling it's going to become really popular, quickly. Watch out, YouTube!

What will U submit to Amazon Studios?

Sia Writing Songs For Brit Brit And P!nk, But Has Her Sights Set On Another Diva!

sia-writing-songs-for-britney-spears-and-pink-hopes-to-collaborate-with-beyonce

We absolutely adore the Australian songstress Sia, but it appears as though she's taking a bit of a hiatus from performing to focus on solely songwriting - and she's got quite the list of pop stars considering her tunes!

Although her last few lyrical contributions ended up on Christina Aguilera's less-than-stellar Bionic, Sia recently revealed that she's submitted to both P!nk and Britney Spears, but there's only ONE diva with whom she's REALLY trying to collaborate: Beyonce!

She explains:

"Beyonce! She's my queen. Now that I've written for Christina, and I hope I keep writing for her because she's a fucking powerhouse, but Beyonce is my queen."

Wonderful!

And we sincerely hope that she takes you up on your request, bb!

We think that you two might produce some truly interesting, AWESOME tunes!

But we hope that you don't stop performing all together, either! Your voice is truly one of a kind, and would be greatly missed!

Audition For American Idol On Myspace!

Filed under: TV NewsAmerican IdolRyan Seacrest

And so it begins yet again!

If you missed your chance to audition for American Idol at the city nearest you, worry not! Yet another change-up this season includes the opportunity for Idol hopefuls to submit audition videos via MySpace!

However, be aware that on-line, you have to perform an a capella track from an approved song list for no more than 40 seconds!

Submissions are due October 6th.

Check out the video (above) for more details from Ryan Seacrest!

This should certainly add an whole new layer of 'what the fuck' to the audition episodes when the season starts back up, don't you think??

LOLs!

Thoughts??
