Aniboom/Radiohead Interview With Tyree Dillihay

As part of the ongoing CHF interview series for the In Rainbows Animated Music Video Contest, we bring you our first video interview. Tyree Dillihay, who directed the Flash-animated music video for Bomani “D’mite” Armah’s track Read a Book music video while working at Six Point Harness, details the production process, how the BET project landed in his lap, and the overwhelming reaction the video saw on the internet.

I personally think Tyree is being modest about the number of views Read a Book received so far. Of the clips currently still viewable on YouTube, there’s a good 3 million views, and previous clips accounted for millions more. I’d argue that Read a Book was one of the most viewed web clips of 2007.

I also want to direct your attention to Tyree’s Flash-animated short film Differences, which was also produced at Six Point Harness.

    Those mouths look a little familiar to ones used on a flash show that airs on Cartoon Network. It could just be my imagination though.
