For a successful business Tarell Basham Youth Jersey , you have to keep a close watch on productivity and cost.

So Quincy Wilson Youth Jersey , what is the solution?
IT Staff Augmentation makes meeting Deadlines possible
IT staff augmentation is Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos
Amazon Inc is making a high-stakes foray into the challenging realm of independent movies, the latest step in its attempt to move beyond simply distributing digital entertainment content to creating it.
Amazon said on Monday it was aiming to produce close to 12 movies a year for theatrical release which would then be available on its Prime video service within two months, significantly faster than the roughly one-year wait it normally faces to stream Hollywood releases.
Amazon expects to focus on "indie" movies with budgets of between $5 million and $25 million, spokeswoman Sally Fouts said. While modest compared with Hollywood blockbusters, the move will add to already hefty spending at Amazon Malik Hooker Youth Jersey , potentially unnerving investors concerned about the company's lack of profitability.
Such films have proved challenging even for major Hollywood studios such as Paramount and Warner Brothers, which have bowed out of the business in recent years, said Jeff Bock, Box office analyst at Exhibitor Relations.
"It's a tough, tough racket to play consistently T.Y. Hilton Youth Jersey ," he said, pointing to the difficulty of getting good content and the competition for quality productions at festivals like Sundance.
The move shows Amazon's growing ambitions in digital media, coming just days after the online retailer signed director Woody Allen to create a TV series and one of its existing series won a Golden Globe Award, a first for Internet TV services.
Unlike rival Netflix Inc, a standalone Internet TV service Andrew Luck Youth Jersey , Amazon's Prime video service comes bundled with the Internet retailer's two-day delivery for items purchased on the site, which costs $99 a year, a key driver of revenue for the company.
Specialized film vibe
It remains unclear whether Amazon believes the movie business can make money on its own, but most of its other ventures are ultimately aimed at bolstering its underlying retail business.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is known for his hunger to tackle new markets but the company has had a mixed track record, as with the recent Amazon Fire phone Nyheim Hines Youth Jersey , whose price tag it has slashed after weak sales.
Its movie-production gamble ups the ante for Netflix, which said in September it would jointly produce a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and in October signed a deal for comedian Adam Sandler to star in and produce four films to be shown exclusively on the service.
Amazon said it has hired Ted Hope, a producer of independent movies including Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Academy Award-nominated Eat Drink Man Woman Tyquan Lewis Youth Jersey , to head the effort.
"He's very much tuned into the indie world and the specialized film vibe," said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst at Rentrak. "It's just a way to get out the kind of edgy, interesting and sometimes enlightening content that these films sometimes provide."
If successful, Amazon Original Movies could further threaten traditional big-screen movie theaters Kemoko Turay Youth Jersey , which have been coping with dwindling audiences. Sony Pictures' recent success in releasing its comedy The Interview through video-on-demand services after threats from hackers was also seen as a blow to big-screen businesses.
"That verbiage probably scares theater owners," Bock said, referring to Amazons' plan to narrow the window between theatrical releases and streaming availability, adding that the theater chains could take some solace in Amazon's decision not to go for simultaneous release or just putting films straight out on video.
National Association of Theater Owners Vice President Patrick Corcoran declined to comment on Amazon's move but said the time between theatrical and home video release would play into theaters' decision on whether to take a particular film.
Some theater chains objected vociferously when Netflix said it hoped to release the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel in select IMAX theaters and its streaming service at the same time.
Amazon may have decided to target theatrical releases rather than pushing movies straight to Prime because big name talent still associates paying ticketholders with prestige Braden Smith Youth Jersey , said Phil Contrino, chief analyst at boxoffice.
"At the end of the day a theatrical release still generates a lot of publicity, it gets a movie reviewed - every person that goes to watch that movie is paying for it," he said.
While Hope is known for making independent movies rather than big-budget Hollywood blockbusters, Amazon Studios has succeeded in the world of television in part by aligning itself with high-profile directors like Allen and Steven Soderbergh of Ocean's Eleven fame.
The company spent an estimated $2 billion on content in 2014 with about $200 million of that use. wholesale new air max discount nike air max wholesale Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Basketball Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys China
