Deeasherself wrote this beautiful piece a while back & it's been an honour to make a visual accompaniment to such a moving story. This is the most recent edit of the movie, with refined audio from JeffPeff.
a sort of stream of consciousness-y thing ive been writing lately. i saw this timelapse vid today by bluebudgie and was really inspired to experiment with it. i understand how this might be seen as political or preachy or offensive.. but i honestly dont mean to be any of those things. it is directed at me more than anyone else. there's a lot of literary reference nod's in the text.
sub-point: the track is an instrumental version of everything is on fire
This was my first attempt at making a stop motion animation, but it was really fun. Pardon the change in lighting. I left the background white and blank for people to add things (clouds, birds, etc.). Or perhaps some background noises (ocean, airplane, city bustle). Thank you Metaphorest and Lizziemackie for making such a beautiful song.
Created this little hitRECord branded counter. Hope it's of some use.
Shakespeare's Sonnet 29, read by David Hyde Pierce.
wirrow first Released this song back in the springtime. The first thing I did after the first time I heard it was email dan, saying "I found your new favorite song." He and I share a love for the pleasantly repetitive.
Other musicians added to it, PixelPilgrim and ChenelyWelly added to wirrow's vocals from the female persuasion. Nels Cline played hot guitar. Jeff Peff added percussion and edited the whole thing together into its current form.
The hypno-face template is one of the cooler aesthetic feats our mass collaborative process has achieved so far: wirrow drawing the first face, then hundreds of hitRECorders coloring it into diversity.
And the work of a whole lot of video artists went into this montage I've cut. Too many to name in this description, but I'll cite the resources below. (I've listed some so far, but I'll have to dig around to find the rest) The footage of dan spinning comes from Vanya, who is well intent on uploading the resource, I know because he's standing right next to me.
I am going to have a daughter this summer and this afternoon I got my first real glimpse at her. It was an experience of immeasurable beauty and joy.
While it is one thing to see the whole body in its entirety, it was particularly amazing to watch the heart beat. The ultrasound camera is creates so many visual perspectives and sometimes you are viewing the exterior of the baby, and other times you are suddenly within the body, viewing the organs and the muscles.
I'll never forget one particular moment where the heart was the main focus on the screen. It's beating at around 142 bps and it looks so tiny, and yet it's so prominent. But what really struck me was the baby's whole body seemed to just be a glowing outline. In that series of moments it became clear to me that our bodies truly are just physical vessels.
Oh, and I absolutely loved what the technician said to us about her job and how much she loves doing it. I just had to use that audio byte to open the video.
Happy birthday, dude (and lemme know what 30's like...)
When my dad's aunt and uncle came to visit. First time I met them :D
Hope this answers your questions, Joe,
though most of it is stuff you already know.
A video here, and not a dope rhyme,
just about six minutes of your time.
I beg your pardon for my verbosity;
But I hope this quells your curiosity! ^_^

After cruising through a lot of the 2010 College Tour footage I was struck by a conversation at NYU between RegularJOE and a member of the audience about copyright and intellectual property laws. The discussion segued into how hitRECord is makes its art open to a collaborative community that can REvise, REfine, and RE-RECord anything that is uploaded.
I have to give a special shout-out to Dr. Gory for being the man with a movie camera for the New York University event. I have a real appreciation for the effort involved in getting the necessary coverage in the type of space the NYU event occurred in.
But there was a lot of shot variety throughout the EX3 videos, making it possible to create the illusion (in the editing room) that there were multiple EX3 cameras getting all kinds of shots during the conversation. This type of REmixing is when wide and ultra wide shots really come in handy. :)
I've made this in Black and White so it can be used as a Alpha.
A tribute to Jared, one of the hardest working producers in all the land, and his $9 sxsw paycheck!
iamcharlie had a beautiful image, which prompted jsparks' beautiful story, so I thought I'd reREC them with some of reneg88's beautiful music and SFBakstad's beautiful time lapses for a beautiful time. :) Thanks, guys! Enjoy!
