Announcing the "Am I Awake?" video contest!
Hear the song on soundcloud! http://bit.ly/1evUfSB
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! Possibly including YOU!
PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD. IF YOU KNOW
CREATIVE PEOPLE PLEASE ENCOURAGE THEM TO
TAKE PART IN THIS EXPERIMENT IN GOOD TIMES!
There will be 3 winners. $1000 cash prize to each winner.
These are the rules: Awesomeness required.
Originality a must. DEADLINE IS .
What we’d suggest to anyone about to embark on
participating in this contest: 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 copyrighted 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
GOOD LUCK TO ALL PARTICIPANTS! EXPRESS YOURSELF THROUGH THE MAGIC OF ROCK VIDEO!
