Amazon StorytellerAmazon Studios has just announced a new tool called Amazon Storyteller, which promises to help would-be filmmakers and scriptwriters more easily realize their visions by translating scripts into full-on storyboards with characters and dialogue. The tool, which is available now in beta, scans a submitted script for scenes, locations, and characters from the descriptions and then tries to replicate it using a catalog of “thousands” of props, characters, and background locations. From there, scriptwriters can upload their own images, “recast” the characters, change locations, and generally tweak the storyboards as much as they see fit.
