Amazon to shoot all series in 4K
Amazon Studios will shoot all of its original content for 2014 in 4K resolution. This move is intended to attract more attention to the new Ultra HD televisions now on the market, which Amazon is highlighting on their website.
Director of Amazon Studios Roy Price said, “All of the pilots and series we produce next year will be shot in 4K. That includes our first ever drama series that we will greenlight next year — we think customers are going to love watching these series in the highest resolution ever available to consumers and we can’t wait to deliver it.”
Some of these original series coming next year will include The After, from Chris Carter (The X-Files); Bosch, based on the Michael Connelly series; Mozart in the Jungle, from Roman Coppola (The Darjeeling Limited); The Rebels from Michael Strahan; and Transparent, from Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under), along with what is presumed to be the second season of Amazon Prime hit Alpha House.
