Hessel van Oorschot, Founder and CEO of Tribe of Noise: “Recently TED’s Chris  Anderson said the rise of web video is driving a worldwide phenomenon he  calls Crowd Accelerated Innovation, a self-fueling cycle of learning  that could be as significant as the invention of print. With this  contest GoAnimate and Tribe of Noise are creating the framework for  creative music and animation talent around the Globe, to meet, to create  and to have fun!”

“GoAnimate was created to let everyone make their own animations easily  and animated music video has always been a big genre on our site.  Our  previous programs with AKON and Willie Nelson generated massive  attention and showed us what a powerful combination animation and music  truly is”, states Alvin Hung, Founder and CEO of GoAnimate.  “We are  excited to work hand-in-hand with Tribe of Noise to extend the platform  to musicians around the globe.”
