Oliveira Wins Incubus Video Contest

The American alternative rock band Incubus has announced the winner of their I Dig Incubus Contest, which was hosted by Epic Records. The band and Epic challenged fans and artists alike to come up with their own music videos for the song Dig, which is off Incubus’ new album Light Grenades. Carlos Oliveira (aka kaamuz) won both the Band and Fan picks, and his Flash-animated video is now being distributed to video outlets around the world.

Prior to this contest, Oliveira had begun several animated projects, but none were completed. He had been using Flash at his job in Portugal, creating educational content for kids, and it was this contest that finally spurred him to finish his first animation. Next up for Oliveira (besides making music with his own band) a new short using photo-collage, similar to Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python animations. Below is a video of Oliveira accepting his award from the band back in February.
