Calling all iClone filmmakers looking to become the next music video mogul! The Machinima community has deep roots in music video 'mods', but this time it's all about originality. The Radiohead, Aniboom.com create-the-video contest has a few requirements, in the first stage entrants will need to create a storyboard for members of the band to review whereby they will select certain candidates to move to the next round. There are no limits to what kind of storyboard you submit and videos are allowed for 'previz,' giving iClone filmmakers a certain edge over the competition. Another edge, you only have until April 27th to complete your first entry so speed is key and iClone will be certain to aid in this. Finally with the ability for iClone filmmakers to own and distribute their own work with full commerical ownership you can confidently enter the contest without doubt that, if you win, the boys from Radiohead can showcase your work on MTV, MySpace and elsewhere while padding your wallet with a sweet $10,000 production deal and you'll have zero worry about using it to pay legal fees to some game company. Good luck!
