Amazon May Stop Making Their Pilots Public

amazon pilots

More often than not, TV show pilots aren’t made available to the public until the show has been picked up as a series. But Amazon has bucked tradition and taken to uploading their completed pilots to Amazon Prime Video for everyone to see. This enabled audiences to provide feedback into which pilots they might want to see nab a full series order. But those days may be numbered. Amazon is now considering nixing that idea entirely, and hiding their pilots away the way a miser hides his riches. The era of Amazon pilots might be over.

TV in Trump's America

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, and opinionated about something that makes us very happy…or fills us with indescribable rage. In this edition: the rise of political television in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidency.)

It started with Nazi symbols strewn across public transportation and billboards across D.C. and New York. No, it wasn’t the alarming rise of anti-Semitic vandalism that had skyrocketed in the first three months of the Trump administration. It was advertising The Man in the High Castle, the dystopian Amazon series based off the 1962 Philip K. Dick novel set in an alternate 1960s where the Axis powers won World War II.

And it was just the beginning in a recent surge in “newly relevant” and timely TV shows that took on new meaning after the election of Donald Trump to the White House. The Man in the High Castle kicked off a spate of fictional TV shows such as The Handmaid’s Tale and American Gods, whose stories were conceived long before the White House was even a glimmer in Trump’s eye. But these science-fiction and fantasy stories, at first cautionary or highly theoretical tales, now take on an eerie prescience as fiction and reality collide on the small screen.

The Man in the High Castle Season 2 Trailer

Yep, The Man in the High Castle is on its way back to Amazon Video for season two, and we’ve got the new trailer right here. Read More »

the man in the high castle visual effects

The most impressive visual effects are the visual effects you never notice, and television is quickly becoming home to a ton of visual effects you never notice. While some shows get to show office massive CGI dragons, others use computer effects to modify skylines, extend sets, and quietly manipulate environments so they look like another time and place. We recently saw this kind of seamless effects work at work in ABC’s Agent Carter, but a new video explores how Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle uses the same technology to create a far different and more terrifying world. It seem that if computers are good for anything, it’s for crafting Nazi-run science fiction dystopias.
