Back in March 2008, aniBoom, the online home of animation, teamed up with Radiohead's TBD Records for a contest inviting fans and animators to create a video for any of the songs from the band's wildly successful album, In Rainbows.

From over 1,000 storyboard submissions, roughly 200 clips were produced and whittled down to 15 semi-finalists. Thom Yorke was quoted on w.a.s.t.e. saying, "... the aniBoom competition. Totally blown me away, it has. How the hell you pick a winner?" Initially, the contest was to culminate in the selection of one grand prize winner, who would receive $10,000. Radiohead, however, was so impressed by the phenomenal outpouring of creativity that they decided to add $30,000 to the pot and award four lucky contestants. Above is a still from Kota & Totori's winning video for 15 Step.

Yesterday, aniBoom released the four full-length videos for public viewing. Check them out above.
