Radiohead Animated Video Contest Winners

(PR) Radiohead, aniBoom and TBD Records have named the winners of the In Rainbows Animated Music Video Contest, as selected by the members of Radiohead themselves.

Due to the extraordinary quality of the submissions, Radiohead decided to choose four winning videos, rather than a single winner, and is going to provide the additional prize money so that each of the four creators receives $10,000 to produce their full-length video. Radiohead will possibly use the videos in support of future singles from In Rainbows.

The winning video clip submissions and their creative teams are:

“15 Step V2.0” by Kota Totori, Japan, for the song “15 Step” (http://www.aniboom.com/video/236519/15-step-v2.0/)

“16 Tracks Vs. Videotape 2.0” by Wolfgang Jaiser and Claus Winter, Germany, for the song “Videotape” (http://www.aniboom.com/video/236713/16tracks-vs-videotape-2.0/)

“Reckoner V2” by Clement Picon, France, for the song “Reckoner” (http://www.aniboom.com/video/235299/Reckoner-v2/)

“Transmutation” by Tobias Stretch, U.S.A., for the song “Weird Fishes / Arpeggi” (http://www.aniboom.com/video/233397/Transmutation/)

“The aniBoom video competition, totally blown me away it has,” said Thom Yorke, lead vocalist of Radiohead. ”We are proud that In Rainbows songs were the source of inspiration for so many amazing creations.”

The contest invited all creators and Radiohead fans from across the globe to produce a one-minute animated music video clip for any song from the band’s latest album, In Rainbows, for a chance to win the $10,000 grand prize to produce a full-length animated music video. aniBoom received more than 1000 entries, representing more than 150 cities, 40 countries and 5 continents. The contest was promoted on Adult Swim, MySpace and aniBoom.com, where fans were able to vote for their favorite video and help determine the finalists from which Radiohead chose the winners.
