While putting up all these posts about the West Coast Trail trip I have had a lot of ideas for new posts. Today I saw the winners for the Radiohead Animated video contest where they asked fans to create videos for tracks on their new album. The band choose four as winners. Here’s my fave.
Here are the others:
Entertaining Japanese-style cartoon. A boy runs and goes through psychadelic journey, the end is full of storyboards.
This one is eerie and awesome. Mesh of real footage of lonely, beautiful and ordinary places combined with some computer animation.
Weird Fishes / Arpeggi
The beginning of this is really cool and I think the artist paid attention to what Radiohead was thinking with this song but it relies heavily on storyboards. Which, although well done, pale next to the live footage and puppets in the opening.
Until Pitchfork weighs in on them, this is the best review you have. Let me know what you think of them.
