Corin Hardy has won the international music video/commercial category at Belgian animation festival Anima 2008 for his video for The Horrors' She Is The New Thing, accepting his prize at the festival awards show in Brussels on Saturday.
Hardy, who is represented by Academy Films in London, won the award in a field crowded with commercials and videos from Belgium, the Netherlands, the UK and US. Told of his win last Friday, he travelled at short notice to Brussels to receive his prize in person the following evening.
The graphically violent and bloody video for She Is The New Thing, commissioned by Emily Tedrake at Polydor, features live footage of The Horrors performing incorporated into hand-drawn

Corin Hardy goes to Anima 2008
"On Friday afternoon I received a call to let me know that my music video for The Horrors had won best animated music video in the International category of Anima 2008, Brussels. The organizer Doris Clevin asked me if I could attend the awards ceremony the following evening and I promptly packed my bag for a 24 hour trip to Brussels and back.
"I took my flatmate's camera to record my journey and had a great time sampling fine Belge beers, meeting passionate Flemish animation folks and generally feeling chuffed with the award."
"Receiving the award - I got someone to take this view from the stage for Promo News, the crowd were cheering up a storm - shame about the focus! A great night."
