With a robust children’s series development slate in place, Amazon Studios is set to partake in an in-depth discussion at the upcoming annual Children, Youth & Media (CYM) conference on November 13 in Toronto, Canada.
Tara Sorensen, head of kids programming at Amazon Studios, will be joined by creators J.J. Johnson (Annedroids) and Angela Santomero (Creative Galaxy), both of whom have series already in production, to share the studio’s approach to youth content.
Since this past spring, Amazon Studios has been developing children’s original programming and spearheading a novel way to develop original content by offering open submissions. Projects are turned into pilots and customers are then invited to watch, provide feedback and help determine which pilots should be produced as a series.
Among the topics discussed at the conference will be Amazon Studios’ approach to developing content, how the Amazon Studios process has changed the way new kids content is developed, how feedback and collaboration have become the driving force behind development, and the opportunities the studio offers for creators.
The Children, Youth & Media (CYM) conference will be held from November 13–15. More information can be found online.
