How many times you have felt that you had a good story that could go on to make a big hit on the film screen but failed to do anything further then rueing about a lost chance. It has happened to many a times but each time due to lack of any resources, the idea of writing a film scrip has gone down the drain.
Not any more, with Amazons' help of course! Amazon today launched a free beta Storyteller storyboarding App. To understand what the App does, we enter a hypothetical scenario. You have a great plot but don't know what to do with it. Now go to Amazon's Storyteller site and download the storyboarding App. Write down the nice script that you have been churning up in your mind and upload it to Amazon Studios.
This is were the fun begins. The tool will then identify the scenes, characters, locations, props etc., with the script you have written and will then prepare a storyboard for you complete with characters and dialogues.
Now you can edit the storyboard according to your whims and fancies. You can upload your own images for the default Amazon characters so you can get a feel of a real film script. Film-makers can concentrate on using pan and zoom, change facial expressions and positions of characters, add props, captions and more while the tool does the job of setting the basic scene for them.
Eureka, your film story is complete. Now you can save your project on Amazon Studios and publish it. You can then pass the project on to friends and peers for them to view and critique.
Amazon Storyteller is a part of Amazon Studios, which was launched back in 2011 to help film-makers and writers with a platform that turns scripts into original series. You need to upload scripts onto the site to have peers give you feedback. Last week, Amazon Studios gave a green signal to a few original series, Alpha House and Betas, and kid’s series Annebots, Creative Galaxy and Tumbleaf.
Go on, give it a try, may be you will get lucky and be the next J.K. Rawling of films.
