I really loved Bell's "Departures" so I took it, added a little lo-fi grit to it and some background noise, and then did a reading of part of my poem "Of Messengers and Wolves" over the top. Not really for any particular purpose other than I wanted to. So, enjoy.
Made & screened at Sundance Film Festival 2010.
This song had this great feel of road, and I just decided to go with it ;) Tried rhythm matching movement.
This is an edit of wirrow's Give Me All The Flickering Lights. I originally thought the whole video should be one large flickering light but quickly learned that this poem is about a lot more. Or maybe it isn't...?
wirrow - I sincerely appreciate these words. thank you for sharing them.
My edit for the Road Movie collab.Big thanks to kelliebean for creating the flesh and the bones for this video, I just put the sunglasses on it :) Also to all of the well-travelled hitRECorders who contributed images to the collab.The music is a piece called Majesty, by Pete Conrad.

Last night large flakes of wet, clumpy snow fell faster and faster for a few minutes, and I was lucky enough to have been caught out in it (though was later very wet) and captured it on video with the light of a streetlamp. It's very much raw footage, but maybe it will be useful for something?
It's not very often that I drop one project midway to work on another, but as soon as I heard/read wirrow's 'Give me all the flickering lights' and then heard RoboJ's version with the synth score, I just knew I had to work on it.
Extra props to LilacAmy for putting together such an amazing album of resources!
For all you video editors out there!
Recently, I got the bright idea (see what I did there) to turn off all of the lights in my room, place my DSLR at a 90 degree angle against my wall, and use my hand to let the light from an LED flashlight spill onto the wall and into the lens. I wasn't sure exactly how this would look, but I think the result is pretty amazing, and I wonder how many people would even know what they were looking at without me telling them. Anyways, I decided to share it with you guys because I think it works really well as stock footage.
P.S. I have loads more of this kind of stuff. Just let me know, and I would be glad to share it.

RAW stock footage of driving in rain. Focus on the windshield wiper.
Recorded this on the plane over the holidays. Figured it might be remixable somehow.
I've just been playing around with the piece Back Then written by dianasev and the music it inspired; Reds and Yellows by amferraro.
A special thank you for the footage to alpal, MattConley and especially to SFBakstad - you are the answer to my timelapse prayers.
I chose this song because I moved here in 2006 (which is when RegularJOE wrote the song), and I felt very "sick" for a while. But I'm glad I went through that because now I'm stronger than ever. (I'm still a coward though. Funny thing is I'm born on Halloween, haha.)
May we all grow stronger every day.
Again, by ♡
P.S. For those who live there, tell the Los Angeles sky I said hi and that I miss him very, very much.
Taken at the Radiolab show in Berkeley CA, 11/4/2011
The crowd was given LED lights and batteries to participate in the end of the show. I thought it would be useful for background or effects.
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.
Trying to capture a butterfly with my Canon 60D and a 50mm 1.4 lens for shallow depth of field - not such a good idea with something that moves so fast.
Feel free to cut and layer and edit to your hearts content. :)
Here's a Time Lapse I did last night at a tiny park two blocks from my home in North Beach. This is downtown San Francisco and that's the Bay Bridge. Music is the first line from the metafictionist's beautiful Ouvre ton coeur...
Here's a time lapse of some blooming daffodils that I did this past week. Enjoy!
Hi, I haven't contributed in awhile and I miss my HitRecord family.
Here's a little nighttime cloudscape from California.
Hope you awesome HitRecorders can use it.
My roommate put on a record this morning and some cool stuff was happening with the light coming through the window.
The compression I used wasn't very good. Sorry about that.
Left this a bit minimalist, not only because Liz's original footage is superb, but also to leave room for others to add more cutaways.
i love absolutely every element of "CosmicSnow Trapeze" by PonderGoblin & wanted to add another layer to it & give it an extra cosmic feel!
Hey everyone, not sure if I did this correctly because, once again, I am not knowledgable about stems and music and whatnot. So I did my best. Here's the WAV files with a dry vocal run, the filtered vocal run, the nature background noise, and the two filtered musical tracks. Hope I did this right haha
