Dec 19, 2013

Amazon Studios, the original film and series production arm of, announced Amazon Storybuilder. Based on the practice of outlining a screenplay with paper notecards, Amazon Storybuilder takes notecarding and makes it digital, giving screenwriters the ability to lay out digital notecards on a virtual corkboard. Users can access their projects whenever and wherever on their computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Currently in beta, Amazon Storybuilder lets writers add text and images to their notecards. Writers using Amazon Storybuilder may also invite trusted reviewers to privately look at notecards and provide feedback.

It is free to use and Amazon Studios acquires no ownership or option rights on projects created using the tool. Amazon Storybuilder follows the launch of Amazon Studios' first script development tool, Amazon Storyteller.
