I spent some time finally looking at Amazon Studios and what hey are trying to do with optioning scripts. It's an interesting read. FAQ: http://studios.amazon.com/help/faq#about_rights_original Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FZe-lwNe6A I might be misunderstanding this but it looks to me like you give them a $0 option for 45 days. If they wish, they can forcefully extend that option for 18 months @$10,000 and then do it again for another 18 months and $10,000. That's a three year option for only $20,000. Reading further, they can totally bump you out of the process and credits. Am I reading this wrong? I also liked how they said they could buy it for $200,000 but what looks more likely is they extend the options / extensions while they develop it on their own for 3 years then pay you -- maybe. Anyone have any experience / stories / insights about Amazon Studios?
