Default Amazon Studios 45 days - Still evaluating?

First time submitting to Amazon Studios . It's been 45 days and my one-hour pilot script is still in the "evaluating" phase. From what I understood, you're supposed to received a decision within the 45 day period. Anyone else experiencing this?

Amazon studio no longer does the 45 day obligatory free option with answer at the end of that period, they recently updated their policy.

Basically you upload now and can shop it to other places as well, and they (Amazon) will TRY* to review it in 45 days, but it is no longer an obligation.



With stuff like that is better to forget you even submitted it and keep pitching around or better yet start writing some new material. It's like waiting for a contest result, it'll kill ya'

Your post reminded me to take a look at my own status. Turns out I'm in the same boat. I submitted a one-hour pilot 55 days ago and it's now in the "Deciding" phase. The two feature film scripts I previously submitted received passes within a few days. So now I'm going to forget about it all over again.

My pilot has been evaluating for nearly two months. I contacted AS thinking it was a glitch (heard they were having some tracker problems). They said there is no longer a 45-day turnaround time, and that the Evaluation phase takes the longest out of all the stages.

Best of luck on your project!

This reminded me to check on a feature I uploaded. It's in the deciding stage. The first feature I uploaded was passed in a couple days, this one has been there about 3 weeks.

My action script was stuck in "Deciding" for about 5 weeks. Finally got the PASS yesterday. At least it's still in the running for the BlueCat semis! I have no idea what type of material they're looking for. What was the film they bought at Sundance for a record $18M?

Amazon purchased my buddy's film MANCHESTER for 10 mil (stoked for the dude, he's kicking big time ass).

Fox Searchlight are the ones who spent 17.5 mil on BIRTH OF A NATION.

Yeah, I think that was me. I sell so many scripts for so many millions, it's hard to keep track sometimes.
