Vimeo may seem like another YouTube to most, but other than streaming video it is hardly like it at all. Vimeo is a community of creative people who publish videos that they, themselves, have created. This means that you are not watching 100 of the same music videos but rather one entity’s creative skill being shared in a likeminded community.
So naturally Vimeo recognise the truly talented video makers and have an annual music awards where they acknowledge the best of the best out of all the thousands of videos submitted. Here are videos that took honours in this year’s award ceremony:
Best Video and Best Documentary – Last Minutes with ODEN
Best Experimental Video – Oops
Best Music Video – Liars “Scissors”
Best Remix Video – BREAKDOWN the Video (remix)
Best Motion Graphics Video – TRI▲NGLE
Best Animation Video – Between Bears
Best Narrative Video – Thrush
Best Original Series – Break-Ups: The Series
Best Captures Video – Fluid Sculpture
There are some great videos on Vimeo, these are just some of the most thought provoking and inspiring ones and, I must admit, the winner’s videos are amazing.
