Ladies and Gentlemen, I have pretty big news… WE WON AN EMMY! To all of the artists, all over the world that contributed their ideas, writing, music, animation, really ANY kind of RECording: thank you, thank you, thank you!! We all earned this together.
We won the award for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media in the category of Social TV Experience, which means that the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has recognized our collaborative efforts in making this show together through hitRECord.org.
So thank you to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for recognizing the efforts of so many who made a show like HITRECORD ON TV possible. While our main focus as a community is to seek validation in the work we do together, it’s truly an honor to have an established institution like the Emmy’s take notice of our collaborative process.
I’d also be remiss if I didn’t thank our amazing network, Pivot, as they took a chance on this show before we even made the first episode.
So I say it again - thank you all!! I can’t wait for Season 2. In fact, if you are ANY kind of artist, come work with us. We’re in production right now, and it’s going really, really well. So come and join us!

I was lucky enough to film Joe performing this great song he was still writing at the UK HoA this year & I had a long enough train journey at the weekend to give me the excuse to finally get round to finishing editing it together.
Also features special guest appearences by... Dead Kiriyama's shoulder & The Shuttersmith walking past in the background in a fantastic blink & you'll miss it cameo moment <3
Because I am Final Cut Pro inept, I messed up the file size on the earlier record (http://www.hitrecord.org/records/1655775). So I thought I'd upload the better version in case anyone needed it for anything besides reference for animation.
Thanks to debit72 for helping me figure this out! :)
A short little bumper for RE: FIRE based on the amazing photo by Christopher McKenny.

This is a project we worked on at the HitRECord House of Awesome in Bath at the beginning of July. The idea was to combine live action with photography and animation to make a live action version of Mollie The Second Hand Dollie, a song that I have been following with a lot of interest.
TheShuttersmith kindly assisted on set and has taken up the task of animating this footage into a polished product! I'll be posting a visuals request list along with this video (resourced below) to giev you an idea of the look and feel we are thinking about for this video.
It's very 1950s, so we're looking to use photography (both original and public domain), footage (again, both original and public domain) and Photoshop skills to give this the aesthetic we envisioned.
**PLEASE NOTE** this is a very low-res, iMovie edit of the film. This is just to give you an idea of what is going on, and what we have in mind!
Please check out the visual list resourced below and get involved!

Cutaways added into the rough cut. Would be great if there are more suitable cutaways so that the video can be more visually interesting.
I'm a talker so testimonials are hard for me to keep short. This is a little long but I tried my best to hold off the tears til the end to save you all from my cry face. Nearly made it :)
So here's a really belated cheque photo, since it came through the mail the day after I caught a plane to HoA UK. But it is unbelievably super duper to come home to a cheque that will help pay off a trip to meet hitRECorders in person. gahh I'm officially a paid artist! You're all pretty marv, influencing what I'd like to do in life and so forth. Thank you for everything. <3
