The In Rainbows animated video competition is starting to take shape. Aniboom has begun posting the storyboard entries online.
Aniboom asked all creators and Radiohead fans from across the globe to create an animated music video for any one of the songs from the band’s latest album. More than 350 entries have been submitted and posted to the site since the first stage of the competition launched three weeks ago inviting all artists, animators, writers, character designers and more to submit storyboards that may range from basic sketches with words to more complex submissions in video formats, using the song of their choice from In Rainbows. Additional entries are being posted every day. Anyone can visit Aniboom.com now to view, rank and comment on their favorites through the end of stage one on April 27. More information on the contest can be found at Aniboom.com.
After the current period during which animators can continue to submit storyboards for viewing and ranking by creators and fans at Aniboom.com ends on April 27, a panel that will include people from Aniboom, TBD Records and Adult Swim will then select ten semifinalists who will be awarded $1,000 each to produce a one-minute animated music video. The semifinalist videos will be shared across Aniboom’s web-wide network of distribution partners, and fans will be given the opportunity to vote at aniboom.com and at MySpace. The videos will then be submitted to Radiohead to select the winner. The creator(s) of the winning video will be awarded $10,000 to expand their one minute submission to produce the full-length video. In addition, the winning video may have its broadcast premiere on Adult Swim.
