This is just a first draft-I know people are still putting up videos. I REALLY want to have people talking about their RECollections, but it's hard with music in the videos-so if you guys could upload versions without music, I would love you forever. Also, there were a few videos that I couldn't get to work with my computer, and I wasn't able to change the format of, so I couldn't use them. I'll do more drafts of this as more people upload their footage.
One last request-I'd REALLY love to have everyone holding up their RECollections and saying "again by heart." If not, that's cool, but it was just an idea I had.
A brief note:I had been debating whether or not to get a record player for the longest time. Would I invest wisely in this? Would I keep buying records? I just didn't know. And then HitRECord had this littlebig special offer for those who pre-ordered RECollection which seemed to push me in the right direction. I regret nothing and I am so happy/proud/all of these great feelings about this book and this record. I am now sitting happily with a bunch of records (including this new one :D). I also have a shiny new RECord button (my first one) and a really, really amazing book.
Got my copy yesterday but I was too busy to post the pic. I know I'm not that big and none of my RECords have really been featured or noticed but I wanted to buy the RECOLLECTION because it's really cool. It's great to be apart of such a talented community. Hopefully for future projects, some of my work can be featured!
I'm so excited to get this!
This is my first video REmix. Heck, this might be the first time I've ever really used iMovie.
I've been playing around with this for a week, trying to get to a point where I'm happy with it, and then tonight I heard ozie's beautiful piano piece, added it and decided to upload what I've got.
ETA: I made a few changes to the transitions between the footage, but most of the video remains unchanged. Check it out!
Today I received my copy of RECollections and I decided to record the experience.
A lot of people have been posting videos and images of themselves opening their RECollections, and I really really love seeing them, and I want to remix them all into something.
It was a great ending to a bad day getting my copy of RECollection in the mail. I noticed that i was holding everything upsidedown and backwards, but i can't reopen it so here we go. After I taped this my son and I read the book, watched the DVD and listened to both the CD and vinyl. It really is a wonder to behold. it added so much value to my experience seeing the names of RECorders I have had the pleasure of meeting on hitRECord recently. I think that everybody, but new RECorders especially can really see that being part of something like this is not impossible. You don't have to be rich or famous, you just have to be yourself.
my voice is a little annoying, the AC is loud, the cats get in the way, I had to fast forward some of it so it wasn't too long, I act like a dork, and I cry toward the end, so yeah, um, enjoy. XD <3
Take two (the first file was corrupted-damn technology!) so hopefully this one works.
Raw footage of me opening RECollection. WARNING: There's a lot of girly hand-flapping in this and general FREAKING OUT.
I'm so incredibly honored to have had a small part of this, and I'm so proud of our community. This is just amazing. <3
wherein i pretend i'm opening the package for the first time, but i'm not b/c i kept dropping shit, had to endlessly re-adjust the camera &etc. der!
the tinkly sounds are the windchimes outside the window, sped up along with me. :-)
I made of video me me opening my collection. it was comedically difficult.
...like christmas morning...
I was VERY nervous to see it all printed for the first time. So I RECorded the experience of opening it. Guys, it's fucking beautiful. Bravo to us all!! <3
:D did you know you can wear your RECollection cover art as a crown? #themoreyouknow #butwaittheresmore
Now I just need to find a record player to play that lovely red vinyl. Anyone willing to let me borrow theirs? :) also, the "Nothing Big" page(s) is my favorite.
Of course, the first thing I did after seeing them, was take a picture. Now it's time to finally rip through that shrink wrap!
Here's my opening of the most utmost amazing thing ever. SO FREAKING HAPPY!!!! It does not encode sadly that may be a problem with my computer, but hey that's what the dowwnload button is for. I get very emotional, but it's all in the spirit of my overflowing happiness. Congrats to everyone!
So the video won't encode here, here's the link to facebook so you can see me opening it and my reaction.
My cat helped me open my RECollection package this afternoon. She quickly became obsessed with the little red button.
... mine hasn't, and I'm wondering if I have just gotten the slowest ship delivery ever, or if somebody there forgot my order : )
anyway, hitRECord got my money on August 5th... I ha...
so cam and i were just chilling at my apartment when the postman showed up. we joked that maybe he had the recollection. then he actually did!
raw footage of my sons, Jonah and Thomas and their thoughts on the dvd :)
Today wasn't a good day for me. Not in the slightest. I drove from my new apartment in Philadelphia back to my hometown, Falls Church, VA. Normally this isn't an issue. Tonight however, I watched my parents sign a contract selling their house. My childhood house. Since it was new in 1949 we are the only family that has lived within these walls.
After all of this hurricane Irene madness the east coast had another tropical storm of sorts roll through and it rained for about a week straight (at least it did in Northern Virginia). It was THIS intense amount of rain that flooded the basement of the house almost 5 feet high. Everything is ruined. Water heater, furnace, washer, dryer, amongst countless other things in boxes and on shelves that we still have yet to go through. The thought of going to visit my parents and not coming 'home' makes my stomach turn. I knew it was only a matter of time, after all I have officially moved away from home. But still, I was not expecting it to happen this quickly under these circumstances.
But I digress...
Now I am not trying to make this a pitty party because, frankly, that is lame. As I was leaving my apartment I noticed a package on the floor in the vestibule. The 'Are we RECording?' on the envelope flashed at me like a beacon and I knew it was for me. Not having time to open it then and there I grabbed it, threw it in my car and went on my way. I forgot about it until I came home and took my things to my room then forgot about it again once all of the flood drama continued. It is now, after midnight and I have just gone through RECollection in it's entirety. Guys, this shit is fucking beautiful. Absolutely amazing. I cannot be more proud to be a part of this community. I have the most ridiculous smile on my face right now. This is the only thing that has brought me such complete and utter joy today...hell more like this past week and a half. I am beyond excited just thinking about all of the incredible things yet to be created. It's just...so good! (It also didn't hurt to see my wee little name credited a couple of times.) Anyway, A+ if you are still reading this. Just wanted to say thank you for this piece of art. It is truly fantastic. Thank you for making me smile so much my fucking face hurts.
All of my love and sloppy kisses -Jennie
Some very shaky raw footage of my copy of the recollection :o)
Beyond delighted that we got this in the mail yesterday. So proud of all you HitRECorders, doing big thangs <3 Had a great time giving this to my mom, she loves it, oh and sorry for the loud laughter! haha
i actually got this on my way to school haha, my dad said that it was a package for me, but since i didnt exactly have the time to stop and open it i ended up taking it with me to school
and what a special surprise it was!
Sometimes you just gotta sniff a new book when you get it. Love that smell. Anyway this is me going crazy when I first got the book. It's so rad.
There's a really good "that's what she said" moment in here. Let's see if you can spot it.
Robo_J and I got our RECollections (I highly RECommend having a hitRECord roommate) and I took a picture of him as he held it up in the light.
I just recently moved into a dorm and haven't been able to release any records. I was soo excited when I got this in the mail. The beginning is me opening it, but my roommate was in the room, so I recorded the rest this morning.
This came out a little bit too PSA-ish.
Still... Hopefully I can make more!
It just makes me so supremely happy <3
Today is my birthday so I decided to give you all footage of me opening my birthday present to myself, the RECollection book. :)
The day it arrived was so hectic and long, seeing the package really raised my spirits as soon as I saw it.
I'm silent the entire time only because my roommate was doing work in the background. :x
I recorded opening my copy of RECollection Vol. 1 and the Nothing Big Record. I sped up the footage about 200% but it's still slow enough for remixing.
Usually, I hate mondays. This one was an exception.
I wanted to make it meet camembert and wine, but my kitchen refused to be this cliché.
Many thanks to Techwanderer for filming this!
RECollection is amazing. Congrats to everyone who worked on it. <3
I feel so proud to have been part of this..it's almost unreal ; w ;
I came home to the most brilliant things! Snailmail from Phensville and finally.... RECollection. ! ! ! ! ! ! My heart is overflowing. It's fucking beautiful, you guys.
I LOVE THIS DAY.
It arrived! My video wont be the best but you get the idea!
My (rather lengthy) review of the RECollection (plus a few rambles about my special button and a dream I had last night).
I got an email last Friday telling me my RECollection has shipped so I didn't expect it to arrive until early next week (as things usually take a week to make their way across the pond). So imagine my surprise and delight when I got home from work this afternoon and found this little parcel sitting behind my flat's door *dances around happily*
MY GOD THIS THING IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, well done to everyone! This little beauty is now sitting together with my beloved collection of artbooks <3
The RECollection arrives today,
So throw all of your cares and worries away.
With animations, tiny stories, pictures, music galore
Who could ask for any...
I was working on a project by my piano and decided to take a few shots of my "nothing big" vinyl. I didn't have a lot of footage to work with so it's not cut to the music very well, I'm mostly just uploading this for anyone that could use bits and pieces in a RECollection video.
I swear RECollection is made for my living room. Or my living room is made for RECollection. Match made in heaven!
PS: RECollection has made it down under!
My copy of RECollection arrived last Monday but I wasn't able to hold it in my arms until Friday.
When I ordered RECollection I was so excited that I completely forgot to put in my address at school and ended up putting in my home address.... 140 miles away from my school. So Friday afternoon I made the trek home to get my RECollection. I'm slightly poorer because of the gas money but it was totally worth it.
Snippets of footage of me opening my copy of RECollection and playing some of the discs.
RECollection arrived at my house in Australia last night and I was thrilled to bits! I can't stop hugging it - yes, HUGGING it - and my cheeks hurt from this maniacal grinning.
I was so excited when my copy of RECollection (with the free red vinyl) came in that I literally skipped from the mailbox to my car with this stupid grin on my face.
Here's my dorky self opening my shiny new RECollection. This is mostly for the lovely fabulouslyfreckled.
I wanted to give a big shoutout to all the hitrecorders who are featured in the first recollection! I finally got mine after a failed delivery attempt on Monday and my roommate not giving me the delivery note from the mailman until Tuesday, I had to wait until Wednesday after work to finally travel to the post office to pick it up! Yay.
It now has a special place on my bookshelf.
I had intended to do a quick a video about this, but I figured that I'd probably get overly sentimental and mushy (and that my accent would become increasingly incomprehensible), and let's face ...
RECollection made it to Europe this week and I couldn't be happier with my copy...I can't stop looking at it...it's so beautiful...:-)
I made a collage out of several great images that were contributed to the recollection collab...
Opening up my RECollection that I got on Friday!! And AHH it's amazing!!
*ps for repost. Figured this might be easier to look at or something. 8T And the other has the weird red line in the middle*
Anyway, got my copy of RECollection! It's freaking awesome. To all those who worked hard and contributed, AWESOME JOB GUYS!
And I can't decide which looks better. orz
So I thought I would remix some of the recollection videos :)
My thinking was to have a film where everyone was simultaneoulsy opening their recollection packages.
Please tell me if I forgot to resource anyone :)
Inspired by Michal's "The Grand Opening" video, I decided to try it too!
RECollection CD Review from my car. A little nervous and lacking energy because I recorded this in the morning before running errands xP I promised a little quickie review but it turned out to be 4 minutes (eeks! sorry guys).
This is just a quick video of me pulling it out of the care package my parents sent me. They didn't send me the entire package that the lovely RECollection came in because they didn't see the point in shipping vinyl to me when I have no record player here. The life of a college student.
In the background, you may be able to hear pamagotchi's remix to "No Borders" found at http://www.hitrecord.org/records/450918
I'm so excited to have it now! Eventually, I'll have my little review.
I'm sorry it's rather long, but there are a couple of outtakes at the end :)
It's such a tiny little thing, but I'm so happy to be a part of it. (With bonus deleted drawings at the bottom of the frame!)
I don't have a whole lot of time for RECording these days with an 8 week old and all, but I wanted to write a short reflection on how amazing the RECollection is.
I can't even find w...
let me apologize for the terrible audio and picture quality. I'm using my crappy webcam :s
My copy of RECollection has arrived! And as the postscript to the video says, I'm actually in it! It's an amazing feeling.
Also, there's a post-postscript, so stick around/jump ahead for that. [07:34]
It came! And I'm really excited about this particular page...
Also, can I just say, for the RECord...This is an absolutely beautiful piece of art! The whole book, DVD, album...Simply gorgeous. :)
Originally shot in front of my laptop screen, but a) my screen is dirty and it showed and b) too many files :P and so: here it is. MY copy of recollection. It's so pretty and shiny! Congrats everyone!
So I'm really trying to learn After Effects right now and this is just a little bumper I came up with while I was fucking around.
I got back home after some time away to find the most brilliant package sitting on the doorstep! Needless to say, no work was done until I had read it cover to cover, listened to all the songs and watched everything on the DVD. And I really, actually did empty my bank account to buy this. TOTALLY WORTH EVERY PENNY :D
I came home from a horribly stressful day at work today to find a parcel waiting for me.
I knew straight away what it was and when I openened it I fell in...
Woo hoo! It's here finally! Thank you RegularJOE and everyone for your support on Nothing Big Pencil Animation. I cannot describe how absolutely thrilled I am with the RECollection, the shows, and the work people have put into the hitRECord community. Many hugs! <3
so happy to have it on my hands!!! :) just received it earlier today, October 6th.
i immediately browsed the book and listened to the CD while working. it really put me in a good mood, coz i usually look like this x_0 while at work hahaha! actually i'm still listening to the CD right now while posting and it's late.
coincidentally, i was wearing this red-blue-black-white top with red circles. hitRECord and I were meant to be. lol.
great job guys!!! :)
fwaaaah. silly, rushed, and I know it's just way late for the Fall Formal, but it was too much fun to stop making. :)
I think I spent longer on this one than any other yet. also colour! :D
have fun at the Fall Formal, everyone! <3
G’day from Down Under ;)
This is a part-record, part-request. This is part of something I’m working on but I thought it would be lovely if we could have a vid remix of RECollection going to different parts of the world, being pictured against famous landmarks/airports/backdrops. It’s almost as if it’s a character, travelling around the world bringing joy to various people, hitrecorders and non-hitrecorders alike! I’m hoping to do a vid with this, so vid, picture and voiceover records (e.g. saying ‘hi’ from ‘X’ country, maybe talking about how RECollection as a character has made an impression on you on its travels!) would be very much appreciated :)
PS: Also, if you have ideas on how to develop this further, chime right in!
I interviewed my niece, Amellia, to see how she felt about being on the first ever hitrecord recollection DVD.
[Special thanks to my awesome prego sister, Dallas, for helping me with this]
wow... let me tell you about my last few days: I got sick and still am, university was being bitchy, and on october 25 I noticed I STILL hadn't gotten my RECollection although I had ordered it on august 4. sooo, I started asking people about it, even wrote an email to the RECord store asking what was going on...
... and today, after the police nearly hadn't allowed me back into my flat because of the world war two bomb that had been found only a few hundred meters away, I arrive at my door, and see a bright white light... coming from my RECollection package!
of course, I wanted to open it right away, but then my boyfriend called, and then my parents, and then something else came up, and my package was patiently waiting to be opened. I didn't think I could restrain myself, but I did manage to shoot some pictures before I opened it and BOY is it beautiful.
wow. I know hitRECorders are awesome, but this is a new stage of awesomeness. I love love love it, and I'm going to read/listen to/watch it all over again after I've done my homework for tomorrow. or maybe before that. wow.
thanks guys for making that happen : )
