Your Eyes Open video winner 17 December 2009

Hello. So, here it is, the very last indivudual winner of our H&F video contenst – for Your Eyes Open. This one was judged by Tom. Thanks again to everyone who submitted videos. All indivudual winners each get a signed copy of the Hopes And Fears Deluxe Edition.

Now that we’ve picked all eight video winners, the band are in the process of selecting the overall H&F video contest winner from the eight winners. With such a high standard of winning entries, it’s sure to be a tough task, but we hope to announce the winner very soon.


Airiin from Estonia
Tom: My winner! Beautiful interpretation of the song. Animation does it for me EVERY time. I was totally taken by surprise when the snowmen came to life! Love Richard’s drum fill before the second chorus too! Bloody BRILLIANT!


Anastasiya K in Moscow
Tom: Very good indeed! Definitely a frontrunner with Airrin’s. Loved the Humpty Dumpty element to it and makes me wonder how all these so-called “professional” video directors who send us scripts come up with such bad stories all the time, when we have fans waiting in the wings with far greater imagination. I found it very, very hard to pick between this and Airrin’s.

Scott N from the US
The chorus section is totally inspired! I think we may have to steal that for one of our future videos!! Like the varispeeding, especially in the middle eight. Really simple and effective vid…well done!

Alejandro A from Guatemala
Tom: Unsettling light and angles combined with sense of solitary confinement, so pretty dark emotionally! A more art-house style interpretation…
