This week Amazon premiered a new feature through its upstart movie studio. It’s called Amazon Storyteller, and you can read about it here. Basically it’ll turn any uploaded screenplay into a rough storyboard, which can help both writers and producers in selling their projects (to Amazon). Right now Storyteller is in beta mode, and more options will be added over time. I have yet to see any actual storyboards, so I can’t speak to the quality of the final product. Still, a cool idea.
Speaking of storyboards, check out this hand-drawn pictorial of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, the whole novel synopsized in two and a half minutes. Entertaining and informative.
