To create the music video for Deadmau5 and Imogen Heap's collaboration "Telemiscommunications," the artists staged a competition for animators. They posted a brief which included a set storyline, sketches of where the main character needed to be on the screen at a given time, and a color palette. The final result features contributions from 19 animators.
