Okay, so I really didn't want to contribute any more to this but for some reason my fingers are pressing keys and even though I know it's a bad idea they're not stopping.


HitRECord is a Production Company, albeit a really unique one. There is nothing else like it out there and I have so much respect for everyone involved in setting it up and keeping it running - it must take a massive amount of effort and cost a lot of money and the way the site is organised is really really exceptional. From the outside looking in it looks like the staff are really committed and put in long long hours, certainly not your typical 9-5 job. And the finished art that is produced - wow that is just phenomenal.


I should probably stop there, shouldn't I?


HitRECord is making a tv show and everyone wants in on the action. The Resident Curators have positions of enormous power because it's impossible for the HR staff to go through everything on the site, so the curators are essential to the smooth running of the site. If you look through my recommendations I'm sure you will see the same names coming up time and time again. My friends if you like, those I chat with, collaborate with, those whose art fits with my personal tastes.


The same is true of the curators. It just is. So you get curators hearting and featuring other curators because they're all friends together, they're often the long-serving ones on the site and have 'grown up' together here. Yes, you can throw up exceptions but it won't alter the basic point. And not just other curators but also their friends, their co-collaborators etc. They're just doing the same as everyone else but on a bigger scale.


Where it becomes a problem is when it comes to submitting ideas for the tv show. Not all records are treated equally and that's what's pissing people off and it's disingenuous to pretend otherwise.


The ideas of non-curators and non-friends of curators have to be that much better to stand a chance of being developed.


It's ridiculous to think otherwise and to be honest it's no different from anywhere else. HitRECord is a Production Company. If I submit a script to a traditional production company it has to be that much better than what people who they already know are producing otherwise why would they entertain me, they're not a charity.


I'm a writer and forgive my arrogance but I know I can write. The Resident Curators have a much better chance of getting a writing gig on the show than me because of their privileged position. Again, I'm not criticising this, they've got that position because they have already proven their writing abilities to the hr staff. They are a 'safe writing pair of hands' and that's important because it's not just about great writing, it's also about being professional, meeting deadlines, etc.


I will say though that it is very rare for a writing curator to give me any kind of feedback, even when I remix their work and I think that's a shame (not for me, I'm fine honestly) because a nice supportive comment from Matt or Jared or a Resident Curator can really be a special thing when people are releasing records and getting very few hits and hearts and understandably taking it personally.


People are putting their art and soul up on this site and yes a lot of it is actually crap but we all know how nerve-wracking it can be baring our souls to people we love, never mind strangers on the internet.

Why, day after day, is there so much great work being produced by people on this site that doesn't remotely get the promotion and recognition it deserves from curators who should be our champions? I have to tell ya, it's really starting to get on my tits.


 


Fuck. Did it.


 


Night!

A little Elysium fields tribute I filmed earlier today. This edit contains shortened versions of each clip, with transitions, so I'll upload each clip individually later on.

I think that adding a preview button on the record page would be a nice touch. That way we could check to make sure we've uploaded the correct file before releasing it, and that the files formated correctly and whatnot. I feel like it would eliminate most records with "DELETE" as the title. Anyways just a quick thought. Thanks!

Not the smoothest animation around, but I haven't tried to do it in after effects yet.  Still, I wanted to get this out there. =]

Practicing with my left hand, hopefully eventually I can use both at the same time.

I reprocessed this photo to give it a Kodachrome color style. I think it looks much better and vivid that the original
