Sundance 2012 Commemorative UN-Limited Edition. The numbers on the red dots are the actual release numbers should you need them...
She dances bare feet, on the tarred road of a deserted street.
Cradled by the city lights, she captures them with her soft fingers.
He watches her, out of the corner of his eye…wondering....
I obviously ate all of the red and orange jelly babies already. They're my favorite.
This is a scene of the Jelly Person proposing A Modest Proposal: Jelly Babies
So much for my supposed 'last version' haha...
This incorporates the end credits of everyone I believe contributed to the film (if I'm wrong and you see your work let me know - but im sure everyones in the list.)
This also includes editing changes to pace - first pointed out by Joe in fact, so those were incorporated - why? Well because before we had pauses (sherbs poiinted this out too) which i thought maybe worked? But didn't in retrospect...
So a couple of cuts here and there, and we've got something more fluid now.
I've also included Megan Carnes excellent score to go alongside madrond and Krr's wonderful work.
Hope you enjoy - can't wait to hear your thoughts X
more than 230 post-its used. cleaner logo than v1.the blinking red rec isn't as smooth tho. i'm thinking of doing a couple more of these with different transitions, effects, and audio. feel free to resource/remix!
elayne's image remix inspired me to make this...It's also kind of my way of saying thank you to HR...I'm really proud to be a part of this revolutionary community. I can go on, but simply, thank you :o)
..this can use some cool sound effects.
*I will resource all the original images when I get a chance*
When the Bear-owl howls and the blue rose blooms,
When broken hearts are few.
In the month of noon , under two new moons,
I Will Return To you.
The very first piece of music I ever completed. This piece is dear to my heart, and represents my growth as a human in a musical way. I would be honored if anyone was able to make something of this.
I can hear them whisper
Butter yellow beams crash upon our tanned shoulders
Attention: ILLUSTRATORS / ANIMATORS / MUSICIANS / VOICE OVER ARTISTS
This is a REQUEST VIDEO for "Make-Up Sex: A Tiny Film" which will need the following elements from each set of artists:
* Illustrate the LIPSTICK character (female, big lips, big eye lashes, smoking cigarette, Jessica Rabbit-esque)
* Illustrate the MASCARA character (male, mopey, middle-aged, mustache, droopy brush on his head, all-around pathetic)
* Illustrate HOTEL ROOM and HOTEL ROOM ELEMENTS (cheap motel bed, motel lamp with red lace over it, rustled sheets, miscellaneous clothing items, ash tray, cheesy framed beach painting, tacky wallpaper, bad carpet)
* Refer to MOCK-UP ILLUSTRATION in video for more details!!!
* Upload TRANSPARENT .PNG files of illustrations (with body parts separated for animators to use easily)
* Once illustrations roll in, follow the MOCK-UP ANIMATION in the request video and assemble the resources (video should be about 10-15 seconds.)
* This is a pull-back tracking shot with a rack focus midway that goes from the disappointed Lipstick to the pathetic Mascara character.
* The score is only going to be about 10-20 seconds long, but we want to open with jazz-type music (preferably a saxophone solo) that sets a sexual mood.
* The score gets muted and out of whack once the pathetic Mascara character is revealed.
* Further requests for music will come after an animation assembly is created and we can time the score according to the action and rhythms.
4) VOICE OVER ARTISTS
* The final narration and wording is not quite set yet. The wording could go a number of ways (both v1 and v2 of the Tiny Story are resourced below.)
* Once we have an animation assembly, we can determine the tone and specific wording for the voice over.
i had an idea for one man movies. this is my first one so ummm yeah. feedback? ideas for future better few man movies?

A connection between two Hitrecorders (Thank you Marcel)
In a world where every day is more difficult to have the chance of being surprised, I was able to feel this powerful sensation again! I am from a small country in the middle of Central America, Nicaragua, and when I joined Hitrecord I was convinced that I was going to be the only one from here, and well, in some way, I am, but it was 2 days ago when life just gave me a big surprise.
Around 1979 my country was having a lot of problems (political issues as always, what else could it be?, politics are the reason of almost all the problems that our countries have), we had a revolution organized by a group called Frente Sandinista de Liberacion Nacional FSLN, they wanted to overthrow to the government at that time, it was a dictatorship)I was 3 years old when that happened, I really don’t remember a lot of that moment, but there is a couple of things that I have in my mind, you was able to hear the planes flying around the city and you can hear the bombs falling in the distance, I remember that a couple of nights one of my cousins and I slept under a lot of mattresses, and my mom told me that those things that the planes were throwing were candies, and you know, you are just a kid and you believe that probably that’s the truth, I don’t like to talk about it a lot, but I thought that is was necessary tell this story so you can understand a little bit OUR story (marcellepallais and I).
2 days ago, I was hanging at HR, giving hearts, saying thanks to the people that gave me hearts, you know, the usual, and suddenly I saw that marcellepallais wrote something to me in my profile picture, I was curious, so I just started to read and she was telling me that she had some family in Nicaragua, that she was trying to get more information about his uncle (Marcel) who was killed in 1979 during the revolution, she told me: Maybe you mom or dad knows something about it, so I was at my office (my office is at my home because we have a family company) and I just went to my mom’s room and I asked to her if she knew somebody with the name of Marcel Pallais! She just looks at me and she told me: Marcel, of course!!!! Why? And I just told her the whole story and she told me: He was one of my best friends when I was young! DAMN! I didn’t believe it, so I just went to my computer and sent an email to marcelle! She was in shock as much as I was, so my mom just started to told me stories about Marcel, she told me that he was a fantastic man, very good looking, very funny (he loved to tell jokes), that he was a great dancer and that one day he asked to her to be his girlfriend but she said: NO! (Funny moment, I laugh a lot when she told me about it, she said that he was very good looking but that she just loved him as a friend) and well, a lot of more stories, my mom was really sentimental because he’s dead and it just made her remember a lot of things that happened during that years, and she told me that she was really sad because she and marcel didn’t see each other a lot when she got married, and he was doing other things so they lost contact for a long time, but such is life, sometimes you just stop seeing people and then you realize that they are gone and you feel this emptiness in your heart and you just wish that things had been different, but you just have to get over it and keep living! So I was asking to my mom everything and I was writing to marcelle at the same time, telling her all these fantastic stories about her uncle, at the end, it was so much better because we realize that my mom and my dad knew all marcelle’s family, my grandma and grandpa were friends of marcelle’s grandparents, they went to parties and social events together because they had the same circle of friends, and well, the cherry on the top: We’re related by marriage, the story is a little complicated, so I am not going to try to tell you about the family tree and the connections that we have, but we are something like PRIMAS (cousins), isn’t it magical? I mean what the odds??? Really! So now, I just can say thanks to hitrecord, thanks to my profile for showing my location (country) and thanks to marcelle coming back to HR from a long time of absence, because now here we are, with a fantastic connection created in some part by this place, I have a new cousin but above all I can say that I believe in magic again! Marcelle, love you girl, eres lo maximo prima!!!!
PS: I just wanted to share this story with you because there were some Hitrecorders that were following this story yesterday, and because I think that it’s just an amazing moment at least for me and her, and also, we can believe that these stories not only happen in the movies, no, it can happen in real life. In the picture you can see me, marcelle, my mom (Anne) and Marcel (I want to say thanks to him because he was the one who made all of this possible, RIP, you wonderful man, because even now that you’re gone, you continue doing magic and bringing together people who would never have known if it wasn’t for you). :o)
I loved themetafictionist's image and wanted to do something with it :) I'm not sure I did it justice, but it was fun to make! Also, I really think Sarah's song fits the concept :)
(I might do another slightly different version somtime, when I feel like fighting with my scanner again.)
I separated the parts and completed the remaining incomplete areas. I tried to create gestures for her, although I probably missed many.
If you need more variations, let me know! Oh, and I can not think of anything to "move" the hand with the cigarette without making it complicated. I wanted to upload it fast, but if you need it, I do it. :)
A simple song, For You
Hitting a computer (kick sound)
Drum stick on a Cisco pix firewall
Thought this might be something to inspire illustrations for the Little Red Riding Hood project! I shot these a couple years back with my friend, Hannah Fierman.
ok - this is the corrected version with gabys name spelled properly!!
honestly, to save time i am just resourcing v.1 for this, as it has all the resources listed.
For Malicore's Time Traveler collab. I've been wanting to do something with this collab for a while now, and finally everything seemed to fall into place.
Hope you like it!
There is one resource that for some reason won't add.
It's called 'lights' and you can find it here:
I thought we were falling in love when our first date
before i explain myself, i need to point out that i haven't done anything unforgivably nerdy on here for a while! okay?! so naturally, when i saw this photo and thought, "hey i wonder where all the lines will intersect!" (reasonable), and decided to find out for myself, i ended up making this. and to my surprise and subsequent delight, the lines met at three points!! design and architecture experts are probably like "duh" but come on!! let the little math nerd have her sad little party of one okay???
Continuing the theme of "people who have similar pets to mine asking me to draw them", Dusty's puppy Leo! Leo and my part-time puppers Ella are technically different breeds (Leo is full Poodle, Ella is a Poodle mix), but we still both look like we went to the "Muppets bred with sheep" factory and ordered the same model in a different color.
Dusty asked for Leo as the prince he very clearly is, et voila! It's still rough (or should I say "ruff"? Har har har, I hate myself), but I could never deny Dusty the chance to play with something in photoshop and fix my spirals into conforming to the golden ratio, as they so clearly long to.
So freaking pompous.
The version with Day Glo's reading is here http://hitrecord.org/records/652907
This is really simple, but I like it that way. What do you think?
Special thanks to lidan for making me do this :D
I recommend listening with headphones.
There are some Greek thrown in here....from the Seiklos epitaph. The translation on Wikipedia reads:
While you live, shine
Have no grief at all
Life only exists for a short while
And time demands its toll.
The jelly babies have taken me over, it's the sugar rush:)
I loved Robo J's 33RPM vinyl experiment of "Make Space for Me in Your Coffin' and it was really only procrastination & curiosity that led me to wonder how the song would sound repitched back to normal at that tempo.
I wasn't intending to release it as a record but I liked the result & I've been listening to it quite alot, so thought I'd share it anyways.
When I was a boy, I slept under starlight every night.
Punxsutawney Phil's Shadow is one pretty special guy. As if you didn't already know that. (He gets multiple spotlights and his own parade back in Umbra. It's a real big deal)
Eaneikciv's beautiful track, totally moved me to take time out of my day and complete the images I saw in my head when I heard the song.
I don't necessarily think I'm adding or moving a collaboration with this. because it seems pretty finalized, but Im certainly adding a bunch of free footage, that i think could be applied to a lot (remember to recommend and resource)
I heard the song, not really as a love song, as how the sundance short ended up, but it kinda hit me because I've dealt with panic disorder for awhile, and there are those moments where you are just relaxing and those thouhghts creep in, and you just feel like you can't hear anything, like you are underwater and all you want to do is relax and enjoy yourself, but your body is saying no. it can be very frustrating. And "we're sinking" is totally how it feels. I wouldn't say I have it as bad as others, but I've had some easier times and some harder times. It's always been important to me to take deep breaths and try to move on when its over and not linger in it. I hope you like..
so i set out to do a stop motion jelly babies logo for the collab, which is the first four seconds here. then the little jelly babies got carried away and begged for dancing and ukelele. and how can you deny them? jamie's design is so durn cute.
i still have the little guys if there are any requests for further mischief.
This song is about a Man I knew who was terrified to fly. He would get two shots of whiskey and shot of vodka each flight just to deal with the terror raging inside him.
A girl sitting two rows up sings a song about people flying like stones.
The girl and her part are fictional, the man and his terror is not.
Two shot of whiskey from the push-by cart
Another shot of Vodka and the flight just starts
And he can't seem to take his eyes off the seat belt sign.
Two rows up with (head)phones in her head
She sings to herself
Two rows up with (head)phones in her head
Now she's singing it out loud.
We fly like stones that children throw
Off the bridge we love downtown.
And when we crash we always burn
And the ripples we leave are the only clues left to be found.
Engines turn and engines burn through the sky.
Feeling so low even though he's flying high
And he thinks to himself
what good is this lousy seatbelt
If we all go down in flames?
“Eyes Open Nevermore”
She stands on the subway platform, completely alone in every direction. There’s not a trace of life in sight. That...
