MySpace is premiering the three remaining fan-made videos that were short-listed in Radiohead’s recent animated video contest,“Weird Fishes,” “15 Step,” and “Videotape.” The first to debut is here, Tobias Stretch’s “Weird Fishes.”
MySpace Music had previously premiered the video for <a href=”Radiohead announce fan-made ‘Reckoner’ video”>“Reckoner” which was created by Clement Picon of France</a>, which the band chose as the official video for the song. All four videos were winners of the In Rainbows Animated Music Video Contest. The contest was put together by aniBoom (aniboom.com), the premiere virtual animation studio, TBD Records and the band. The winners were selected by the members of Radiohead themselves .
“The aniBoom video competition, totally blown me away it has,” said Thom Yorke, lead vocalist of Radiohead. “We are proud that In Rainbows songs were the source of inspiration for so many amazing creations.”
The contest invited all creators and Radiohead fans from across the globe to produce a one-minute animated music video clip for any song from the band’s latest album, In Rainbows, for a chance to win the $10,000 grand prize to produce a full-length animated music video. aniBoom received more than 1000 entries, representing more than 150 cities, 40 countries and 5 continents.
Due to the extraordinary quality of the submissions, Radiohead decided to choose four winning videos, rather than a single winner, and provided the additional prize money so that each of the four creators receives $10,000 to produce their full-length video.
