I've heard about this and became aware of it when ArmyMan brought it to our attention today at this topic on the Forums. Turns out Amazon.com through a program called "AmazonStudios" is getting into the business of developing original programming. This is welcome news for everyone involved with and aspiring to develop creative content and underscores just how significant the move towards bringing original programming to the Internet is becoming.

Click here to learn more about AmazonStudios and see what's happening with the projects they're lining up. For info on their criteria for submissions and  how you can get involved in preparing for this new territory click here to access their site. Also check out the video below for a visual explanation of what AmazonStudios has in mind. It's from a year ago but still has pertinence towards the idea of developing original Web based programming.

Here's something that's fun to watch and prophetic in nature. Take a trip back in time some 28 years ago to 1984 as Apple Computers recreates World War II and 1944 in a humorous internal marketing video intended for motivational purposes.

In January 1984, the Macintosh TV ad that aired during the Super Bowl caused a sensation. This was a follow up. Set as a tale of good vs. IBM, its budget was purportedly only $50,000. It was designed to fire up Apple's international sales force at a meeting in Hawaii that same year.

Saw this film on YouTube and recognized the moniker of 'hett15' as someone who was active on the old AN forums prior to the switch to the new format we currently use. Sure enough, looks like it's the same person.

This is "Lucille IV" which is a 2009 senior thesis film from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. The filmmaker is Greg Hettinger and he did an incredible job with this very entertaining animated short. Greg is now an environment artist and animator at DreamWorks in Glendale, California.
