NEW COMPILATION ALBUM "IDLEWILD" IN THE WORKS
ANNOUNCING THE AM I AWAKE VIDEO CONTEST
They Might Be Giants is making a new compilation album called Idlewild and it includes the
magnificent but often overlooked track "Am I Awake."
To help raise awareness of this great song we're going to have a video contest open to all video people,
film people and general visually-minded people who are open to the challenge
**These are the rules**
Originality a must.
DEADLINE IS .
There will be 3 winners.
$1000 cash prize to each winner.
HERE'S THE SONG
WHAT WE'D SUGGEST TO ANYONE:
Poetry, not prose. No see/say.
Please make it beautiful, bold, stylish, contemporary, psychedelic, mind-bending.
Transparency effects are nice, startling and beautiful imagery is nice, motion graphics can be exciting.
Live action, animation, multi-media--anything is possible.
If there is any humor we would suggest it should be the deadest of the deadpan.
The topic should not be John and John, and representations of the band are discouraged.
All imagery must be original.
Incorporating copywriten images will disqualify your work
HOW IT'S JUDGED
All submissions must be uploaded in HD on Vimeo.com with password protection before the contest deadline.
You must then send us a message via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include a direct link and
a password along with your full name, email address, and phone number (strictly for contact purposes should
you be chosen as the winner -- we promise not to telemarket our t-shirt collection to you).
All judging will be done by the great Judge John Hodgman
(the great judge who judged the great "Can't Keep Johnny Down"
contest that resulted in this transcendently awesome winning video from Bees Knees Film)
