Amazon x New Yorker
I love this idea: Amazon is turning stories from the New Yorker magazine into short documentaries for its Prime TV.
The executive producer is award winning documentary maker Alex Gibney - his Wikileaks documentary is excellent - and this is a potentially great collaboration.
Lots of films (Argo, Pushing Tin, Top Gun) were inspired by magazine articles, and if the tone is right some of these stories could make great shorts.
Now all I need is a Prime subscription...
