This was not one of the items in my list of guesses for the next million Amazon products.

@ohadisohad They always have some kind of surprise .. lol
@ohadisohad That was my first reaction exactly! Though the more I think about it the more it makes complete sense for them.
This looks like a really neat initiative by amazon. Not only do they offer a very feature rich product for FREE, but they also are using this as a source of material for their original content. After you finish, you can easily submit to Amazon Studios. h/t @sarahintampa http://techcrunch.com/2015/11/19...
More about Celtx. They have a simple web version like Amazon story but their desktop client for Mac or Windows works much better. It syncs your work to your web account (most of the time). There are mobile apps too for iPhone/iPad.
It's interesting, but the submit part not so much, they can get it made, but it's not like you'll get anything out of it. Basically this is good if you are looking to get your name out there I guess, but even then, will they give you credit for? They should make the submission part more enticing.
What if they went all Google on everyone and mined the content on their servers to algorithmically create "original content"?
@napoleonsuarez I had the same thought. In the least, I am betting they will scan and use as a source for amazon content.
