TotallyJamie's cut outs are amazing. I animated this in after effects, it's very short, but i can't help it, tiny stories call for tiny time durations.
I liked this tiny story, and since I can't draw a picture for it, I did what I do best, a motion typography.
I won't be making records soon, since my software is at home and i'll be going off to college. So I'm going to try to get in as many as I can.

A REmix of the "RE: Cinema" discussion with cinematographer Wally Pfister at the "hitRECord at the Movies" show at the BFI in London. I especially liked when Wally mentioned how Hal Ashby's work would later go on to be very important to him. I think it would be interesting to explore our early influences at some point collaboratively.
I mean I'm definitely no Ira Glass but this is my first attempt at story telling. Well, fake story telling that is. I wanted to explore the idea of where a tiny story comes from. So I wrote this fictional story that someone could easily have gotten the diver story from. (Even though I had nothing to do with the original writing of this amazing tiny story) It's almost like reverse writing. Does that make sense? I don't know. Enjoy. :)
Anyway, I released a transcript of sorts incase you yourself want to do your own version of the fake history of this tiny story. http://hitrecord.org/records/431073 This is basically just what this record started as and then I turned it into the video.
Also I don't know if this is a dumb idea or not but I think it would be cool for people to start making fake histories for other tiny stories. I know I definitely want to do so.
For bryn haz's great tiny story - the doctors wife... "The physician’s wife was told that an apple a day kept the doctor away. Each evening she would eat two apples (just to be safe). But much to her dismay, her husband still kept coming home."
Yeah The Viddler... WTF indeed!
There once was a girl who poured all of her heartbreaks out in rainbows;
At her most grey, she was surrounded by a riot of color.
Phen, everyone, I hope you like it. Lovelovelove.
The boy's shadow whispered to him beneath the sunlight, "You see, you're really not so small."
(I think this illustration from Danah is perfect for this tiny story by blbest)
Another Illustration! I love doing this! :) This is one of my favorites tiny stories! I Hope everyone like it! Please could you add this for the book! RegularJOE! Please! :)
Listen with headphones if you can!
A couple o' months ago, Sel released her translated version of wirrow's atom song....when megan released her piano version, I really wanted to try singing it..so, yeah here we go!
Slight tweaking of zee words:
Siempre despierta y todo parece real
Como un conejo en un miel infinto come el mar
No estoy respirando y no estas respirando por mi
Compartes tus suenos y comparto los mios con tigo
Encuentrame en el mismo lugar, no existe nada allí
Encuentrame olvida los demás: no somos enemigos aquí
Puedo cantar por ti, sino orar la verdad
Pero no moriremos: el amor es infinidad
Veo la bomba a, volando en tu alma
Veo la bomba a cuando me cantas
"Always awake, everything seems real,
Like a bunny in endless honey like the sea,
I'm not breathing and you're not breathing for me,
You share your dreams and I share mine with you.
"Find me in the same place, nothing exists there,
Find me, forget the rest, we're not enemies here
I can sing for you, pray the truth,
But we won't die: love is infinity"
I see the atom bomb floating in your soul,
I see the atom bomb when you sing to me"
Illustration version two. Even though no one seemed to be interested in the previous one , I didn't feel accomplished, so I'm posting a better illustration.
EDIT: I'm adding this to the LRRH collab, since Psalmist suggested that it could be used for remixing. Not sure if this could work, seeing that it has the tiny story on it, but we'll see. :)
A.K.A Different Timezones: Ultimate Cockblock Based on Arin's tiny story: "The problem with different time zones is that I have to wait until night to say goodmorning to you." Sadly, she couldn't upload it in time T^T But the story is her's and I love it to bits.
My version of KarizzMarie's tiny story - The Lonely Star....well, sort of, just thought the sun needs something to keep himself entertain.
added some harmonica, maracas, and some cardboard box.
didn't care to adjust the tempo, just ran with Marke for this one :)
definitely going to mess around with this some more soon.
After reading anachronistique's poem "Not Juliet" I was almost immediately inspired to record the poem.
I don't know where this came from since I'm no musician but it happened! It could be cleaner but I've decided its best to stop tweeking it before I mess up and ruin the whole thing. Hope someone out there finds a use for it! Happy remixing!

Just thoughts, or a stupid ramble....i dunno...
Last song today ha! Bit of a change of tone for this one - I'm jumping on the hitRECord blues train with thanks to smweed's awesome lyrics. Additions/suggestions welcome!
Basically a video capture of the OpenCanvas event file for "Tiny Breakfast v2".
Sorry for the rather poor quality of this. Originally I was hoping to convert the event file directly into an avi or something but apparently there is no direct way to do it, so the only way to show it as a video is to do a video capture of my desktop screen during the playback. I then put the captured video through Windows Movie Maker and applied a x4 speed up. I could not seem to find the quality setting for re-encoding in Windows Movie Maker and hence the rather pathetic video quality here :S
Anyone interested in remixing this please let me know and I'll upload the original video capture (which has better quality)~
this is like well unedited by the way
(lion) raw(r) footage random stuff in my house that my family (mainly my mum and me) have collected over the years. For fraeulein's bitchin' collab xxxxxx
I love the new words that Rochelle Boucher added to her Tiny Story! Sadly, my sweet little 3-year old daughter will need lots of practice before she can remember the words and sing along to this longer version, but she knows the 1st verse by heart now, she's even better than me! I'd still love to see a tiny film or animation come from this song or the tiny tune version if anyone feels up to it!
~you can't sleep? me either. let's can't sleep together~
Remix of Midnight Stranger by hachi (the cats is just lovely :3) based on thedustdancestoo tiny story Sleepyheads.

A friend's birthday present of DVDs sat all alone on my desk feeling quite under dressed for the occasion. I'm assured that they feel much better now and are ready to be presented to their new owner.
It was suggested that totallyjamie's pattern would also make great wrapping paper.
And it does.
Sometimes, I lie awake wondering about the future, when I lie awake wondering about the past.
Sometimes, I lay awake wondering about ...
HAPPY HITRECORDIVERSARY TO ME!!! July 28, 2011 marks exactly one year since I joined hitRECord. I remember that night well... I think I had just come back from a club in LA, and then... well I don't want to ruin the story! It's a story told in the only way I know how to tell 'em: RANDOM AND ABSTRACT AS FUCK.
(there's a puppy though. she's adorable.)
One thing missing from the story, though, is how much I LOOOOOVE all my new friends I've met through this dastardly delight of a website. Seriously, guys. I love you all. Except you, Viddler. And I look forward to another amazing year to come!
What if they are both delighted instead of smirky and scoffy?
Fate and Coincidence spotted each other in a bar. "Well, look who I ran into," crowed Coincidence with innocent delight....
Well, I don't know what to do at this point so I imagine that this is the text that is going to be in the book, right? Well, I just want to be with this story until the end because i love it! Also I want to thanks everybody who recommended this tiny Illustration! THANK YOU, it means a lot for me so, Thanks again! :)
Took a picture against a backdrop since tollayjamie rightly observed that my scanned version almost looked digital. So here's the proof that this is indeed a real papercut :)
Here is my (rather strange) illustration for thedustdancestoo's tiny story "Sleepyheads".
I decided to try approaching this from a slightly different perspective. Originally I thought about having 2 burglars bumping into each other during a job. However the idea somehow mutated into 2 superheroes-type characters (which, for my personal amusement, I decided to named "Hit-man" and "Record-Girl") bumping into each other during their nightly patrol around the city and one using this as their pick-up line...
So I guess this could also be viewed as the "(Totally) Fake Origin of hitRECord.org" :P
Your mother's thoughts on the situation.
My daughter found the party supply stash in my craft cabinet and has been bringing me a new balloon to inflate every couple hours for three days straight. This is the end result. I was planning to just upload the raw footage, but then I realized that the song "Once Upon A Balloon" would be perfect for it! And I've never done stop motion before, so we'll just call this trial and error, but I thought it turned out alright!
fun fact - that's the piano that was used to record this little song!
Inspired by a recent visit to the musuem. I can't wait to have this many stars hanging from my ceiling and closer to home.
This record is especially for the broken, detached, and/or incomplete hearts. This is for you! and whoever else that want another piece added to theirs. -My heart is not broken, just incomplete
Few mentioned the pattern should be inside lining of a bookcover and some say gift wrapping from the pattern. I say REMIX both idea and we get this. Now I really want this on my coffee table!! :o)
Here's a different color scheme version of the http://hitrecord.org/records/407465
Please note that this pattern is perfectly seamless and can be tile-able over and over again to form even larger infinite pattern in photoshop.
This is the first of a series of drawings I am creating.
About 8 months ago when I joined HitRECord, from browsing and getting to know the site I became fascinated with two things:
1. The people I now refer to as "prominent members" of the HitRECord community
2. The idea of remixing lots of different things to make one big thing.
So after I finished my exams earlier this summer, I decided to get to work on a series of drawings that would merge the two, whilst also adding a character to it.
This is the first, inspired by our ... leader?... boss? : S I'm not sure how to put it... Oh well, Mr Joseph Gordon-Levitt!
Morgan MM's adventures were the very reason why i wanted to join HitRECord so I thought what better way to articulate that through remixing his 'tosh into this drawing - this was originally done buy hand but I Photoshop-ped in a watch I found.
I spent hours browsing through old records, therefore some of them ended up inspiring me even more.
Ooh and I can't draw arms : S
Meet my friends from left to right : Eva, Jess, Christel, Nancy, Vivienn, Nadine, Me (Arin) and Erin
Hopefully someday gonna have real tea party with them :>
