Short and sweet: Amazon Studios is widening its call for original content to include short concept videos for development options. Fresh from green-lighting its first slate of kids and general-interest series, the digital studio is now soliciting short concept videos that offer a “compelling idea for a commercial, theatrical feature film.” Filmmakers worldwide can submit 2-15 minute videos to the Amazon Studios site. The process works just like script submission; there’s a 45-day option and evaluation period and creators of projects added to the development slate will receive a $10,000 payment. Amazon already has 26 films in development, ranging from the cheeky “I Think My Facebook Friend Is Dead” to thriller “Origin of A Species” to “For Sale By Superhero,” an animated kids romp (http://studios.amazon.com/development-slate/movies).
