H 23 October 2009

Yes, to get you in the mood for video making this weekend, here’s another entry for our Hopes And Fears video contest, from Karla S in Monterrey, Mexico. We’ve seen a few animated videos made using The Sims in our time, but this one really impressed for its direction and narrative. Good job Karla.

By the way, we’ve had a few videos submitted which are really good, but use copyrighted material (usually other people’s photographs). Unfortuantely, we can’t allow those videos for the competition, as they infringe a third party’s rights. So please make sure everything in your videos is your own, original work.

Don’t forget, we’re looking for you videos for:

– Bend And Break
– We Might As Well Be Strangers
– Your Eyes Open
– She Has No Time
– Can’t Stop Now
– Sunshine
– Untitled 1
– Snowed Under

You have until November 9th to make your video. When you have, please upload it to Vimeo or YouTube and send the link to Only one video per person, please.

One winner will be picked for each of the eight songs. We will then select one overall winner who will win a deluxe Hopes And Fears bundle featuring a double CD, a T-shirt and a limited edition signed poster. The seven other song winners will each receive a signed copy of the Hopes And Fears Deluxe Edition double CD.

Thanks to everyone who’s entered videos so far. We’re really impressed with the standard (as are the band, who’ve been checking them out too).
