TMBG play a FREE MATINEE CONCERT
in WASHINGTON, DC for ADULTS
Yes, at 4pm on April 26 They Might Be Giants are playing
a special show for ADULTS at the USA Science & Engineering Fest.
We are also doing a KID’S SET at 1pm,
but the one at 4 is for YOU!
TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
IT'S THE AM I AWAKE? VIDEO CONTEST!
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:
Originality a must.
ALL MEDIUMS ARE WELCOME!
Live action, animation, multi-media –- anything is possible.
Things that are beautiful, bold, stylish, contemporary, psychedelic, mind-bending--cool!
Think poetry, not prose. No "see/say" with images directly illustrating the lyrics.
Transparency effects are nice, startling and beautiful imagery is nice, motion graphics can be exciting.
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 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 email@example.com 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).
GOOD LUCK TO ALL PARTICIPANTS! EXPRESS YOURSELF THROUGH THE MAGIC OF ROCK VIDEO!
Here is a clip made from anime footage of the song… not a contest entry, but cool in its own right…
