    TELL YOUR FRIENDS! TELL YOURSELF! IT’S THE AM I AWAKE? VIDEO CONTEST!

    Listen to “Am I Awake?” on soundcloud now… and plan your winning video!
    https://soundcloud.com/they-might-be-giants/am-i-awake

    They Might Be Giants is making a new compilation album called Idlewild and it includes the magnificent, but often overlooked track “Am I Awake?” To help raise awareness of this great song, there is a video contest open to all video people-–film people and general visually-minded people–-who are open to the challenge! We suspect this includes YOU! There will be 3 winners and a $1000 cash prize for each winner.

    These are the rules: Awesomeness required. Originality a must.

    DEADLINE IS APRIL 12th.

    ALL MEDIUMS ARE WELCOME!
    Live action, animation, multi-media –- anything is possible.

    We recommend:
    Things that are beautiful, bold, stylish, contemporary, psychedelic, mind-bending—cool! Think poetry, not prose. Avoid “see/say” with images directly illustrating the lyrics. Transparency effects are nice, startling and beautiful imagery is nice, motion graphics can be exciting. If there is any humor we would suggest it should be the deadest of the deadpan. The topic should not be John and John and representations of the band are discouraged.

    All imagery must be original. Incorporating copyrighted images will disqualify your work.

    HOW IT’S JUDGED?
    All judging will be done by the great Judge John Hodgman.

    All submissions must be uploaded in HD on Vimeo.com with password protection before the contest deadline. You must then send us a message via email to  videocontest at tmbg.com and be sure to include a direct link and a password along with your full name, email address, and phone number (strictly for contact purposes should you be chosen as the winner — we promise not to telemarket our t-shirt collection to you).

    GOOD LUCK TO ALL PARTICIPANTS! EXPRESS YOURSELF THROUGH THE MAGIC OF ROCK VIDEO!
