ANNOUNCING THE "AM I AWAKE?" VIDEO CONTEST
Listen to "Am I Awake?" on soundcloud now… and plan your winning video!
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, there is a video contest open to all video people -–
film people and general visually-minded people –- who are open to the challenge!
We hope that this includes YOU! There will be 3 winners and a $1000 cash prize for each winner.
These are the rules: Awesomeness required. Originality a must. DEADLINE IS APRIL 7th.
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.
All judging will be done by the great Judge John Hodgman.
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).
Here is a clip made from anime footage of the song… not a contest entry, but cool in its own right…
