These videos will aim to offer a “a fresh visual interpretation” of songs from this iconic Pink Floyd album.
The animators will also be able to chat with Pink Floyd’s creative director Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell, about their work and the creative process. Powell was also one half of the Hipgnosis design studio, who created this original album cover.
This conversation between Powell and animators who have entered this competition, will take place via YouTube on September 6 and 5pm UK time.
The upcoming release of Pink Floyd’s remastered version of ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’, comes as former bandmate Roger Waters is set to release his own version of the album.
Waters has already stated on record that this album does not include any contributions from any Pink Floyd bandmate.
