Earlier this year, “The Home Of Animation” website Aniboom held a contest in conjunction with Radiohead to help create a new music video for the band using a song from the band’s recent release In Rainbows. A cash prize of $10,000 was to be awarded to the winner of the competition who could come up with the best storyboard and video-clip to astound Radiohead themselves and Aniboom.
The result was 5 finalists with video-clips that Radiohead collectively voted on. Radiohead was supposed to choose only 1 of the 5 finalists to create a full length video. Radiohead decided that they liked the 4 grand finalists so much that they contributed and extra $30,000 to help create each of the four videos. Not only did the 4 winners collect some serious cash for their creative talent, they also each have their own bragging rights.
Each have their own style. Check them out. I like the video for “Reckoner” the most.
