Thanks Again to all of the Contributing Artists! <3

MERRY CHRISTMAS MJ! (Yes I'm your secret Santa)
I have to tell you that what you do with post-it notes is amazing. I just made this up as I went along and it took me all day. I know it pales in comparison to your mighty works, but it was a modest homage!
I wanted to answer your popularly answered question "What do you want?" and I think Christmas is a good time to answer that question!
I hope you enjoy this minute of tomfoolery. And I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year!
My one year anniversary on hitRECord was in September. It has taken me this long to put together my milestone tribute. I think it was worth it. My goal was to express gratitude for the site and the community and also explain why it means so much to me. Perhaps you will want to share this with friends and family who are not on hitRECord so they'll get a glimpse inside. A few notes:
Time -- This took me many hours to make, probably pushing triple digits, but I think it's particularly fascinating to factor in all of the time that the other artists invested into the RECords I REmixed. It must be thousands. How cool is that?
Gratitude -- I mentioned that I am very grateful for this site and for you all. I hope that I did not overlook any one at the mother ship in the homage sequence. My apologies if I did. I tried to get y'all in there! Also, a big shout out to tillycat for drawing my sidekick in this piece and spaceship for helping me find just the right music.
REsources -- There are 200+ RECords in the REsources. I tried to include REsources for REmixes but it's hard to dig so deep. Please let me know if I overlooked anyone. I know I missed a few. Also, the last 159 RECs are REmixed from my Christmas video and are tiny images flying through space. I can't guarantee that each one is visible but I did not want to leave anyone off the list. I'll be doing a REmix of that video soon, so you'll have another chance to see them.
Thank you for watching this short film. I hope you will enjoy it. I'm on Twitter @sethbang and I welcome you to subscribe to me here, too. You never know, I might do something else spiffy someday. Soon I will do one of those Q&A RECords that are so fun to read. I meant to do that today but I'm pooped.

I'm really happy to sign 637 checks totaling $306,600 to the Contributing Artists of these 2012 productions:
* SONY and Levi's Sponsored Videos
* Tour 2012
* Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, Vol. 2
* Summer Collection
* Resident Curators
The 2012 Final Profit documents can be found here: http://www.hitrecord.org/albums/288068
NOTE: The Community's share of 2012's Profits itotaled $399,289. The remaining $93,000 will be paid out once all the profits for The hitRECorderly subscription series are totaled. The Profit Proposals for hitRECorderly #1-3 are forthcoming, followed by #4.
Now I know I say this every time we send out checks - what can I say, it bears repeating - hitRECord is not about making money. It's about the records we all get to make together. Still, I'm super thrilled to sign all of these checks and continue to pay our artists for their hard work.
Thanks again <3
Here's the "semi-final" version of the Short-Film (there is still some color correction to do)!
I fixed the little mistakes, added and changed some background elements, and adapted the end so it matches with the original script.
Thank you so much for your awesome support on my rough cut! :-)

What's on our money? Not enough women apparently!
Some ramblings on the subject.
Working on a few (plain) colored backgrounds, but with this was a great opportunity (in my opinion) to use silhouettes. Of course, this is why I created such a bright background. The characters could run and jump from one building to the next, but as animated silhouettes. This would add to the exciting, cinematic nature of the KILLER ENERGY DRINK COMMERCIAL. It REALLY could be a beautiful shot in this funny little commercial.
