This was first brought to my attention by Will over at Calico Monkey and ToonBoom Tutorials (check him out if you’re interested in making your own cartoons online).
Then Aniboom contacted me direct to place an ad for the contest on my site. It’s pretty cool they found my little storyboard blog…and I get a link on their site to boot. So what the heck. 🙂
It’s a contest to create a Radiohead music video for a song off their album In Rainbows and it’s hosted by Aniboom. I can be a bit leary about ‘contests’, but this one looks pretty good.
At first they just want an animatic/storyboard that will be voted on by Radiohead, Aniboom and its community. Then the top ten winners get some cash to animate one minute of their idea. The final winner gets $10,000 to produce the whole shebang.
If you feel uneasy about the animating part and just want to storyboard it out, they even have a place to find someone to partner up with. Submissions end April 27, 2008.
If this is something that perks your interest, check out the Aniboom link or ad for all the details!
