Hello all, I'm writing tonight regarding a bit of a bummer. Recently, todd68976 and then others noticed that MissMurd3r_22 was releasing RECords that were not her own work. Not only is this again...
After cruising through a lot of the 2010 College Tour footage I was struck by a conversation at NYU between RegularJOE and a member of the audience about copyright and intellectual property laws. The discussion segued into how hitRECord is makes its art open to a collaborative community that can REvise, REfine, and RE-RECord anything that is uploaded.
I have to give a special shout-out to Dr. Gory for being the man with a movie camera for the New York University event. I have a real appreciation for the effort involved in getting the necessary coverage in the type of space the NYU event occurred in.
But there was a lot of shot variety throughout the EX3 videos, making it possible to create the illusion (in the editing room) that there were multiple EX3 cameras getting all kinds of shots during the conversation. This type of REmixing is when wide and ultra wide shots really come in handy. :)
The hitRECord revolution will now be televised.
Just stumbled upon this thing I wrote a while back. Before we were a production company with the hitRECord Accord and all that, our 2009 v3 website had only this to say...
I forgot to mention in the video, I'm also looking into intellectual property laws as part of my thesis.
Screencap of an archive of the very very very first version of HITRECORD.ORG -- dan helped me put this up on the internet six years ago today <3
I made a mistake earlier and uploaded a version that was missing a 3 second clip in it. So this is the definitive version of "The College Tour Accord."
Basically a follow-up to "Intellectual Properties," a REmix of a conversation at NYU during the College Tour, "The College Tour Accord" is RegularJOE's REmixed explanation of the "hitRECord Accord" to the students of UPenn on November 17th, 2010.
This is the interview that Joel Stein from TIME Magazine would like us to base our writings off of.
Joel wants to make 2 profile articles with your contributions.
There are 3 parts of a profile article that he’d like us to keep in mind when writing.
Joel’s article for TIME Magazine is due this Sunday — September 4th.
I really debated about posting this. Warning, its got some criticism in it. Probably won't ge a lot of recommends, but this is an honest review of the Joel Stein interivew, and my thoughts on Joe and hitRECord. Sorry it's soo long (31 minutes). Feel free to quote me.... or not.
First of all, I'd like to apologise. I realise that this is going to sound like I'm complaining...I'm not. But in case you think I am...
I thought it would be cool to see how the website evolved from 2006 and on. I just got to thinking about how this site used to be just for Joe to share his work, and now it has turned into a prodcution company, we have a anthology of our work out, we're having a fall formal etc etc...dreams do come true, pretty awesome stuff.
I used the the WAYBACK MACHINE on archive.org to capture a few screen shots of hitRECord.org from 2006-present....I'm not sure if the screen shots are totally accurate, but this is what it generated for me. Hopefully you OG hitRECorders won't get too mad if the screen shots seem a bit off :o)
This document is our proposal for how to split up the percentages for the visuals to the pre-show slideshow we played during the College Tour of 2010.
Did we miss anything? Are all artists compensated and attributed fairly? Join the discussion and give us your feedback by 11/19!
Some pretty big news was announced today — I'm gonna direct a movie I wrote! It may be the biggest announcement of my life and I'm super excited about it. :oD
I wanted to take a minute and discuss what this news means for us at hitRECord. This feature project is going to be a traditionally produced film. One day I aspire to do an entire feature film using hitRECord.org's open-collaborative creative process. However, I think it is important to have experience directing a feature in the traditional way. I do hope the hitRECord.org community will be involved in this project some how, in various ways — and, I'll discuss that soon when the time comes...
But, what does this mean for hitRECord while I'm directing this feature? Well, we've been planning for this internally for quite a while. hitRECord has grown a lot as a production company. And we've outgrown the infrastructure we built two years ago for hitRECord to operate with. We've proven ourselves — creatively and businesss-wise. So, IT IS TIME TO EXPAND! Wheras it has been a mostly full-time job for our team, it'll now be a very full-time full time job for our team. I'm going to be hiring more people (we're job creators!) and I think we're going to be able to operate more efficiently.
In the past, hitRECord has had more opportunity than we've been capable of taking on - and that's a good thing. It's time to expand to help realize our full potential. We've been planning hitRECord's growth for a while now to coincide with my feature film project. What we're doing here at hitRECord won't falter, it will accelerate. In the coming weeks, we'll get into the specifics about how everything will work. I can't wait to share some of this stuff with you.
I was telling Jared yesterday that the work we've been doing here at hitRECord — the constant collaboration and creative output — makes me feel like I'm trained and ready for the marathon that is directing a feature film. Thank you for that.
And, thanks again.
The best is yet to come...
hitRECord is expanding so that our production company can meet the growth that's knocking at our door. One of the first orders of business is to take on some new staff. I think we'd all agree that given the growth of the community, a Community Director is needed. The Community Director will help curate the site, assist the community with daily support and to be a reliable line of communication between the company and the community.
The candidate for this position was an easy choice. Matt Conley has shown his commitment as a team player countless times and he has been ever so consistent with making and running the RE-REC collaboration for over a year now. I'm happy to make him hitRECord's first Community Director!
As with everything on hitRECord, job roles and responsibilities will most definitely grow and become more defined with time and experience. So with that said, Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you hitREcord's new Community Director, Mr. Matt Conley!
On hitRECord the RECords you upload must be 100% original to you, or in the Public Domain. Since we are a for-profit production company, by law our productions m...
