It would be interesting to see Amazon work more with the Sundance Film Festival to provide a section of the site focused on the films being screened at the film festival, past films and 3D projects. It would be great to have a preview function to stream the movies, and a watch later option, to buy the film after it is sold to a distribution company.

Amazon Kickstarter Collection
The Amazon press team shared some of the companies that they have partnered with for the Kickstarter Collection.
Following are just a few startups in the Amazon Launchpad program who began their journey with Kickstarter:
- Piper, founded in 2014, raised more than $280,000 from 1,375 backers on Kickstarter before launching the Piper Computer Kit on Amazon Launchpad and generating 5-star ratings from 97% of the Amazon customers who have reviewed the product so far. “Joining the Amazon Launchpad program placed our Piper Computer Kit within an innovative, cutting-edge ecosystem of products we respect,” said Mark Pavlyukovskyy, Founder and CEO of Piper. “We’ve since seen a growing number of customer purchases, in part due to the marketing support we receive from the Amazon Launchpad team. They really understand our mission to empower young inventors to build with technology, and showcase our product among those who align with our mission.”
- Zivix, founded in 2008, raised more than $800,000 from nearly 3,000 backers on Kickstarter before launching the jamstik+ Portable SmartGuitar on Amazon Launchpad and selling enough units to reach the top of the Eiffel Tower more than five times if stacked end-to-end. “It’s been a pleasure to work with Amazon Launchpad over the past year – the program truly is something special, representing a selection of the coolest and most innovative products out there, and we’re honored to have been among the first with our jamstik+ Portable SmartGuitar,” said Matt Cannon, Senior Producer at Zivix. “The involvement of the Amazon Launchpad team is what really took our business to another level. From their ability to help us craft our story, their marketing support, and the way our success felt like their success – they feel like an extension of our team, and we can’t wait to see what else we can achieve together!”
- Prynt, founded in 2014, raised more than $1.5 million from more than 9,000 backers on Kickstarter before launching the The Prynt Case on Amazon Launchpad, with customers purchasing enough cases and photo packs so far to print more than 120,000 instant photos. “Participating in the Amazon Launchpad program has been wonderful — from their awesome team to all of the resources they make easily available to startups,” said Clément Perrot, CEO and Co-Founder of Prynt. “The marketing support in particular is huge in helping us stand out, and our sales have been excellent. It’s great to know that we have a team at Amazon focused on making sure our product is a success!”
- MudWatt, founded in 2015, raised more than $35,000 from more than 500 backers on Kickstarter before launching the MudWatt – Clean Energy from Mud on Amazon Launchpad and selling enough kits to collectively fill a 50-gallon drum with mud. “The Amazon Launchpad program has enabled us to reach new audiences and increase our sales volume, all while also keeping our operations very lean,” said Keegan Cooke, CEO of MudWatt. “Effectively, it has helped us spread the joy of mud power!”
