i haven't done re-recs in a while, so i thought a good way to get back into it would be by going through the re-recs i have done since i joined hitRECord, and re-re-REC some. hopefully this brings up some great pieces for further REmixing :)
i know there is a lot here. and while i agree that re-REC videos should be kept to 10 RECords max - i feel an album can include more as those looking through it can look through as little or as much as they choose.
i selected these RECords for the following reasons, and i hope you find use for them or they inspire you in some way:
albums: i selected these albums first because i am a big fan of albums. they are a great way to organize RECords, and make for good sources of concentrated material all in one spot, and these all have some very useful content! (as for the merchandise re-re-RECs...i hope the RECord store pays heed! i would love to own some of these items! :D)
footage: these are all great sources of clips which could be REmixed into almost anything. i feel they are very useful, and beautifully shot/put together.
collabs: there are so many great collabs here. i am re-re-RECing these as i think any of the "personal" collabs bring us closer as a community. and the waiting collab is such a genius way to make creative use of time we spend every day otherwise doing nothing. for anyone who ever waits anywhere - i RECommend looking around you for the art in it! :)
"future me (by logan)" - by sabine - i think this could be a great idea for a collab. drawings, graphic images or texts as to where we see ourselves in the future.
"for my secret valentine, jestaying" - by beauty of the lake - this was a poem written from an alternate viewpoint of another poem. this also could make for a great collab of text RECords re-written from another viewpoint of the same story. endless REmix possibilities there.
"lonely under here without you" - missamerica - this has already been REmixed several times - it is a great image for tiny stories, image REmixes. i think it could also be animated well.
"muralist" - artanon - this also has endless REmix possibilities. already been done several times. graphic artists take note!
"we are the city" - mcveighp / "1.1 dans un bois solitare" - haus of glitch - both these are fantastic songs and could be sampled, REmixed, used for short film scores, music videos, etc.
“don’t be scared (tiny song)” – mtbrd / “skip and the turtle” – madisenmusic / “catching snowflakes” – lilatook - these would all make for great tiny films!
“storm soliloquies (tiny story)” – by thedustdancestoo / “barefootcrazy” – by inkedcanvas / “barefoot crazy” – by cachet / “tiny story: get your hopes up” – by elleraiseshell / “the broken heart shoppe” – by saintmaker / “cosmic significance…” – by fractaldust / “stress tiny story” – by narwagner / “tears of wonder” – by runni259 / “the little boy” – by thehighseasecho / “wings (tiny story)” – by cinematic.audiophile / "little monster (tiny story) – by sinnamin - these would all make for great voiceovers, tiny songs and then tiny animated films. re: barefoot crazy - both these are amongst my all-time favorite RECords on hitRECord. the drawing by cachet is the style i would see the tiny story being animated.
“in july? (a tiny film): v2” – by mattconley - this is a fantastic example of a tiny story being made into a tiny film
"an elevated love story" - by meelie - i really like this script. it could either be picked up and produced into a short film, or animated into one, or further scripted.
"please don't even think about kissing this cook" - by jestferlaffs - just such a great image - could write tons of stories from it!
“eleven eleven: rebellion” – by kavonne / “occupy (REmix)” – by fractaldust / “west gate fountain” – by kmumford / “today,” – by awristocraft / “a new earth…” by toryelena - these are just really awesome, really powerful images (imo). while they stand alone as 'finished' works of art, i wanted to pass them forward for what inspiration they might be.
“life through a lens (composite)” – by emma conner - while this fits in the above group of pieces i would consider finished works of art in themselves, i wanted to make special mention of it. the phrase 'again, by heart' was defined by joe in his "who are you?" RECord. in it he describes 'RECord' as being broken down into two words which mean 'again' ("RE") and 'heart' ("cord"). in that sense, we are all RECording, all the time, so long as our hearts have been beating. i love that concept and for me, emma's REmix of these images, especially making the iris of this eye red like a RECord button, really captures that.
“tiny stories – i’ve never walked…” – by neithan / “like everyone else (v2)” – by sabine - both of these are just beautiful RECords that i think everyone should see. plus, who knows what they can inspire?
“finale and goodnight…” – by dr. gory / “oversight” – by videotroph / “works in progress (blackbook)” – by fractaldust / “good / great” – by randomprocessvol2.0 / “ready, willing and able…” – by ara / “response to ara” by lizziemackie - now, there are some RECords on hitRECord that in my time here so far, i feel really capture the essence of what it means to be a hitRECorder. these are some of the highlights of those, imho.
alright, i know this is a long list of re-RECs, but i hope you find at least one piece included here inspirational in some way or another!
again, by heart ;)

I was so taken by this image of Markes, I instantly wanted to animate it. Hopefully someone can find some use for it as a back drop or whatever...up to you. Thanks to Lizziemackie for a great track.
Don't know if this is useful, but Cameron wanted some more stoic-like faces and stuff for the remix. Or maybe this can be used for something else.
The hi-res version of this had an error D:
I am working on some city/signs footage also. Should be up in a few days.
The robot wanted to be able to love
Loneliness was tearing him apart
On Christmas eve he wrote a letter
Asking Santa to bring him a heart...
Mirtle's drawing gave me an idea, so I shot it tonight. I'm not that great at photoshop, so please excuse the mess :)
This is my 1st post. So sorry if i've not got the jist of this right. I am a Musician artist from Belfast Ireland, This song attached is a song about our inability to see that we as a collective are the power, "WE are the City' Seeing Dublin fall to its knees with the debt that is has, and watching its people suffer and the same throughout Europe, USA and the rest of the world. We have to realise that we the creative people have a unique oportunity to deliever messages that mean something, when people need to hear them. This isn't a party political broadcast, But I love the fact that people come here to work on Projects not asking about the $!
Project 1st $ 2nd.
I was searching for some samples to just play around with, and Ryan Patrick suggested this beautiful recording of Metafictionist singing "Dans Un Bois Solitaire." So I started glitching it a bit, testing it out, seeing what we could do. This RECord (1.1) contains some sample glitches/arrangement, followed by beat samples without vox, followed by acapella vox glitches. I'd love to see some things added, even different drums, instruments and vocals layered in. I'm really open to letting this one organically develop. Let's see where this one goes! (PS: I read up on my translations from the French and I tried to glitch in appropriate ways...but if I jacked something up in French, please let me know so I can try something new.)
(Sometimes I just love hanging with my 4year old niece Gabrielle. Big thanks to her. Please check out some others in the resource.)
There once was a boy named Skip.
He loved to skip rocks; but he didn't have any friends.
The rocks were(was) his friends.
One day he skipped a rock really far!
He heard a loud noise.
"What was that?!" said Skip.
"It was me!!"
"My name is Bobby and you hit me with a rock!!"
Bobby was a Sea Turtle and he was mad.
"Why did you hit me?!!"
"I'm sorry Bobby! I just love to skip rocks."
"Skipping rocks? I used to skip rocks when I was a wee Turtle!"
"Yes I did!!"
"Will you skip rocks with me?!"
"Well of course!!"
Skip was so happy, he hadn't smiled this big in a long time.
He wasn't just a lonely boy skipping rocks.
He had a real friend; and they skipped rocks every day!
it's been a while since I did a drawing for a tiny story. InkedCanvas' was just too lovely to resist.
at some point soon I'll finish the rest of the things on my to-do list
"Her heart was lighter in the shine of the stars. She released the balloon into the darkness, from whence it came".
That is my line up above but feel free to add your own or help me make this picture better! I drew this with colored pencils and I had no idea what I was doing because I usually paint, actually. I am forced to abandon painting for the time being. Eventually, I will do some paintings when I can and post those too. But I think it turned out ok ...
Story behind the picture I drew: Yesterday, someone told me to not "get my hopes up". I am sick of hearing this from people. My Doctor told me the same thing just last week. Just not in those exact words ... Well, I am not faulting him because he was telling the truth. But someone told me not to get my hopes up on my dreams. And that is just a no no ... This is my response to all those nay sayers out there.
The sign said:
"Broken Hearts/We Buy and Sell"
I reluctantly entered
So many hearts upon the shelves
Cracked and splintered
I asked, "...

furthermore, i've reason to believe that in the grand scale of t...
When I drove off in the morning with my coffee mug on top of the car, I realized I had too much on my mind.
When I put some dirty socks in the bathroom medicine...
While little kids pray there are no monsters beneath their bed,
Do little monsters hope there are no kids above their head?
New version featuring a voice over, ambient sound effects, a subtle musical score, Christmas lights in the winter sequence, a new establishing shot of the kite at the beginning, and a cameo by Santa and his reindeer.
This is still a work in progress, so please upload some readings and/or musical compositions to accompany the animation. Thanks!
Here is a photo I too from my trip backpacking through Europe. It at the west gate of old city Munich Germany. Thought someone could do something with it cause there is so much going on.
I'm away for the rest of this week - hope you all enjoy this in the meantime.
My thanks to kmumford and Peacemaker for the fantastic images that went into this composite. <3
still not quite happy with it but it's getting there... working on the timing and quality of the audio.
Raw EX3 Footage from the Center Aisle Camera, hitRECord FALL FORMAL, October 10th, 2011
regularJOE calls himself the “director” of hitRECord, but it would be equally apt to title him its “curator.” From the Latin curatus, suggesting “careful arrangement” and, later...
