RECOLLECTION! For the sake of my excitement I had to capitaliza the whole damn, beautiful thing. For those whose week was made sublimely, uberly, fantatically, surreally, wonderful by the receiving of the RECollection Vol. 1, it's fucking awesome right? And for those who have yet to receive it, it's coming, I can't wait to see your reactions as you open it, and just know: it's fucking awesome. I know how much talent is poured out and remixed and fined tuned every day, but just having the physical manifestation of these labors of love is just a wildest dream turned into sweet, victorious reality. I've taken to telling all my friends, family, and even the entire theater department at my school, that's my level of pure excitement and I hope out of that I gathered some new recruits. I hope everyone gets a copy, and lets see what can be made for volume 2! Okay so in order for a Volume 2 to start existing, take a look at these re-recs and lets make some more magic!
Lighthouse-Niki-Gorgeous, one of those remixes of a handful of great resources. I need to get going on learning photoshop. I think this has the potential to go further, I want to know about this lighthouse. Story tellers, animators? Or maybe I'll just frame it.
Tightrope-readmooses-Love this rendering of the celebrated tiny story. It's sort of a dark interpretation, but it's like the feeling of trying to keep above water. I love the swirls representing the water, it's simple yet effective.
A hitRECord triumvirate for four-Djean-I instantly thought of that image of the Beatles with their four faces arranged similarly. These four put everything they have into this site, and I love the pop art approach to it.
Things, a tiny tune- Seeing this featured the other morning, I commenced to play at as I got ready for the day. Just amazing, and beautifully rendered. It didn't inspire the happiest of feelings in me to get on with the day, but I kind of liked that it evoked such strong feelings and I could feel Vickie's heart and soul in it. And I grew happy that this tiny tune of Wirrow's tiny story got to be featured. This has produced some awesome remix results everyone should have a listen to, and I think there's more room to expore and play around around with it.
Turn of the Bird-missamerica-I loved this tune, and I'm not sure if it necessarily lends itself to vocals needed, but definitely could work well in a video of some kind, animation. It sort of has a cinematic feel to it.
Dark Attack-JakeJuba- This song is so good. I love all the electronic beats, and the vocals are awesome. It reminds me of a multitude of different, alternative/electronic music like MGMT or Postal Service. Check it out, not sure if anything can be added but I at least like having it on my iTunes.
Afraid-sinnamin- As always any RECords to do with the shadow world is love, but this tiny story was so cute and it dawned on me, that's right in the pitch black, your shadow suddenly does disappear. No results for this yet, but I think it needs some illustration of maybe someone entering into a room as a shadow peers around the corner afraid to go in. Love it!
Aspiration, tiny story-sBo-Awww, melted my heart in an instant. I love stories about the power of innocence, when children teach their elders how to view the world. An illustration of a child running towards the horizon comes to mind. Adorable.
The Ghost King-Reverie- I absolutely loved this. So well written, and I love the imagery. I'm gonna be a nerd here and say it kind of evoked a Lord of the Rings feeling. I want to see an illustration, some preferably male voice over, an animation to go along with it. Brilliant.
Turnip Head Premiere V1-Lawrie Brewster- Finally it has come to fruition! It was possibly May when this amazing story by Metaphorest arrived on the scene and Lawrie has so lovingly with the help of a great many hitRECorders created such a well crafted film. If this is the quality of version 1, I look forward to what ver. 2 will offer. Yay!
Dream catcher experiment-lara-kay- I liked this short video, and all editing of the resources used. I loved that a dream catcher gets to have a say after it has the nasty job of catching all the bad dreams.
Circulation-LilacAmy11- I love this circulation idea, circling around here. Amy puts together a great mix of visuals to go with the manifesto ideas. Short, but powerful.
So here's just a taste of all the amazingness heaped out over the week. Hope everyone gets their RECollections soon if you have not, it's so well done and freaky exciting. And I couldn't decide which Amoeba poster to put up because they are all so amazing. Anyone fortunate enugh to go, have a blast! Love to all of you and everything you do. You make every day a holiday!
A tribute to the hitrecord fantastic four: Jared, Jo, Marke & Dr. Gory.
I have work on it like Julian Opie for the Blur crew portraits
I'm feel really sorry for El Doctor, my drawing is really awfull but i was unable to find a proper picture of him!! His always behind a camera or in the shadow or in a strange face-profile position.
So i want to start now a hunt, with the help of all recorders, to get a good picture of him.
I was just thinking how whenever I remember my dreams during the day, they always come in flashes and are never very clear. So I thought that a Dream Catcher might experience that constantly.
Definetly inspired by @AeB monologue and by @adhgraphicdesig illustration and music.
Ps.: Just playing around with editing, very simple and unfinished.
Ps.: English is not my first language, so forgive my accent. :)
A natural-born dreamer, the little girl walked a tightrope between what was and what could (never) be.
Until one day, she lost her balance.
Went into my head, came out of my hands.
- fav tiny story :D
v1 Made by lots of hitrecorders for the awesome community here!
Will add the resources once this has uploaded!
EDIT: There are a lot of awesome REmixes that take this song to a whole other level, go check them out!
I loved wirrow's "things" tiny story and illustration, so I used it to write another tiny tune. I would love love LOVE to have this remixed, harmonies, instruments (especially where the vocals have just ended) oohs and ahhs, background noises, whatever you feel like doing. If anyone's interested, I could try to get a better recording without so much background noise. And stems. Just lemme know :)
CHORDS are G and B Minor
"What are you doing, child?" father asked.
"I'm trying to touch the sky." On tiptoe, she waved her hands above her head.
"But you can't reach the sky," he said....
