1. "I hope this helps" (puchie06) - Please do yourselves a favor and watch Mrs. Turner sing on her webcam. It's a really beautiful piece of music and it's inspiring to see videos like this where the person just sits down and RECords themselves revealing a part of their spirit.
2. "Tonight: For Mrs. Turner" (riana6) - This RE-RECommendation is a REmix of "I hope this helps." riana6 has taken Mrs. Turner's RECord and done a wonderful version of it. It's wonderful to see things evolve on the site and this is a great example of the hitRECord process.
3. "The Angel Pro Simple Geometry poster" (JollyVan) - Another example of retro graphic design. This definitely is an excellent starting point for an old school poster. Perhaps other artists could use this as a template to create a variety of "title cards" for other video RECords. Imagine if the two "MMM" movies had posters that looked like this. I think that would be a great print-out to give away at the "Fall Formal." Anyone else agree?
4. "Cloud Animation" (L.T.Daley) - I'm a big fan of this particular time lapse video because the tree in the center foreground barely moves. That draws the focus to the clouds as they move by and the effect of time passing comes through very well with minimal foreground distractions.
5. "Fall Formal - Animated Intro" (12:42) - 12:42 continues to upload some really terrific animations. I think this one is a good starting point but I'd personally like to see a variety of these, as in the curtain opening just to the "Fall Formal" logo, or to a "hitRECord presents..." card that transitions to the "Fall Formal" logo. Maybe the number counter could go to tighten it up a bit. But this is off to a great start. Now I just think a few REmixes with alternative images would be awesome.
6. "Fall formal - All ages" (azur_du_ciel) - These poster REmixes have been spectacular so far. What impresses me in particular is that the artists on the site have been very open to the style and feel of the original poster by Marke and by Joe's retro-style announcement. The artwork that's followed has been a great indication that the community really likes the vintage vibe and has found interesting ways to interpret it into visual REmixes like this.
7. "the essentials" (tfoxley) - This was just very striking. The subtle inclusion of the heart made this extra thought-provoking.
8. "Blue Dog" (Neilhouse) - I've REmixed this song for my "RE: Cities / RE: New Orleans" video and it's one of the contributions I am most proud of on here. Neilhouse's song, for me, embodies the "re: Cities" collaboration more than any other RECord because it says so much about the ups and downs of a city. It's so unbelievably emotional and powerful, and personal. I listen to this song quite a bit and it affects me so much every single time. Please, if you haven't sat down and listened to this song with your eyes closed, you really should.
9. "honeyhead" (wirrow) - This song really should be made into a full-length video. When i think of how it would look, Spike Jonze's videos come to mind, particularly his short "I'm Here." To me the song is about an outsider not necessarily trying to belong in society, but just trying to be accepted even to the smallest degree. That's how I see it at least. This song would really make for a spectacular short film/music video/animation.
10. "Little Children" (gbwhale) - One of the most epically cinematic pieces of music I've come across on here. The scope of this particular song, with its transitions and varying themes, really reminds me of Terence Blanchard (who scores a lot of Spike Lee's films.) But this track specifically makes me think of Blanchard's amazing score for "He Got Game."
