I’m mad I didn’t know about hitRECord until now. How did I miss the memo about this amazing site!? Thankfully a friend more hip than me brought it up in conversation.
Do you know about it? Joseph Gordon-Levitt (yes that one) created an open collaborative production company that releases short films, books, DVDs… tons of awesome media that is created by multiple people, from everywhere. Prompts go up from Joseph Gordon-Levitt and from general users – and you can contribute your writing, audio, animation, painting, video, or whatever, to expand upon that idea. When an idea really takes off or gets epic submissions, hitRECord sometimes turns the content into something real. It goes further than the internet. I love that.
An active, global art community. It doesn’t get any better!
I wish I knew animation or had the guts to do video. Maybe I’ll get there. But right now I’m having a blast seeing what other people create, and adding in my own little writing submissions. I’ve also been wanting to experiment with Zeega, so maybe I’ll start there and pull a clip. Gosh, who knows! There are so many possibilities… I’m spinning.
Want a crash intro to the site and it’s work? Go on Netflix. HitRecord On TV is a 2 season series that shares some of the best collaborations. They talk about space, trash, the number 1… there are absolutely no limits.
My little profile is here if you want to look. I’ve never done much creative writing, so I’m happy to now have an outlet.
