Just a little video project I did while I was bored to keep my skills up, what little skills I have. It's also, in a way, to honor the HitRECord television show as well. I'm excited about that. Either way, enjoy and remix!
P.S. I did not edit to the music, don't judge me. It was an afterthought.
So, I did a paper stop-motion :P Feel free to remix and such! I put the original version of the song up, just so it's easier to add more on top.
(Don't ask me why we're barefoot in snow--this was shot during a Thai heat wave!)
Special thanks to my friends Tanya (cameralady & co-conspirator) & Nathan (dude in the video)!
Sometimes I choose to jump, sometimes i choose to fly.
Performance has hopefully taken a drastic turn for the best. Our latest release (v5.5.5) includes a number of key improvements. Release details:
After two days of editing...I NOW SHARE MY BABY WITH THE HR COMMUNITY.. HAVE FUN :)
I gave up on the videos I could not download and edit and just used what I could. It was not my original vision, however, I still enjoyed making this. After it uploads I will make sure to cite EVERYONE, but since I was having issues with uploading earlier, I am waiting until it is offically uploaded and then I will go back and revise.
The vocals are my good buddy Johnny Hemberger (not a hitRECorder yet, but I am TRYING to get him to join, because you will love his work).... anyway, I have his permission to use any songs of his and we have our own agreement until he actually joins.
Hope ya'll enjoy the challenge I gave myself this weekend :)
BIG NEWS: We're gonna be on TV!
"Hit RECord on TV" is gonna be a new kind of variety show. I'll host the show and also direct our global online community to create short films, live performances, music, animation, conversation, and of course, more! Each episode will be focused on a different theme. And like always, anybody with an internet connection is invited to contribute.
I'm super excited to get started!
Are you RECording?
FCP by Dr. Gory
This work illustrates how we are told to dream large and of wondrous things, but the world around us demands us snapping back into reality and getting our heads out of the clouds. The flying heads are representations of the Oneiroi, the Greek gods of Sleep, Dreams and Nightmares. The figure pulls down the cloak of sleep while the Oneroi soothe him to sleep. Meanwhile, the field of lightbulb plants and jars of fireflies attempt to wake him up.
Animated in a book from a used bookstore. Thought the title was interesting and based the animation of that. Animated by drawing over the original sequence again and again. Done straight ahead hence the timing issues. Goes by quick and it's a lot to look at in 30 seconds. Tried to plan it out but it all went crazy anyway.
Now that Collaborations have been redesigned here on hitRECord v5.5, we want you to start creating new Collaborations for the community to get involved with!
In this Video our Community Director, MattConley, will walk you through the following:
Here's a guide to STARTING NEW COLLABORATIONS:

Here's how you REVISE PRE-EXISTING COLLABORATIONS TO ADD REQUEST LISTS:
So roll up your sleeves and let's get to it! :oD
I thought of different elements that I wanted to incorporate in the video and thanks to the amazing resources, I was able to find what I was looking for. I was aiming for feelings of freedom, love, loneliness, nostalgia and the search for something more. Each individual lost in thought, hoping that the light will shed answers.
My first Remix. I used Robo J's 'Train to Los Angeles' video footage and remixed it to ppeppina's song 'Re: loops (we can go back)'. I like how the footage of the train journey works both ways, whether it's going forwards or backwards, and the music is just really nice and melodic. Hope you enjoy it! :)
