Brookduckart made the AWESOME #1 puppet, FallingAlice came up with the idea and puppeteered, KevinMaistros and I shot it, and Moonbug, OnLy_aMy, Catcheth, FallingAlice, KevinMaistros, WriterGirl811, ellieyah, _hayling, Romana_Clef acted and this is what happened.
When I told my husband about being up on stage at the URI show, he asked why and I said, "To talk about loops" and he said, "Like the Chicago Loop?" Why I never thought of Re:Loops in that context before I have no idea, but once he said that I couldn't stop thinking about how to do something for it.
The Chicago Loop is the downtown area of Chicago and it's called that because the EL makes a Loop around that area. So it's literally a loop and also the ride of someone taking the train to work day in and day out can be a metaphorical loop.
This is a version 1/rough draft. I'd really like to get shots of people entering/exiting the train at rush hour, the crowd at rush hour, more shots of people waiting with the Loop signs, people walking up/down the stairs in front of the Loop signs on the stairs. Oh, and quality audio of the announcements like, "An inbound train, toward the Loop will be arriving shortly" and "This is a Brown (or Purple or Green or Pink or Orange) Line train toward the Loop" so they can be mixed in with the audio track. Also, I still can't figure out how to show the train is actually looping. I tried to show the places where it curves but it still doesn't convey that it's making a circle. I'd need some sort of overhead shot, maybe? or maybe there's another way? MeganCarnes suggested showing the map, which may work, but I wonder if it's copyrighted?
And I resourced my text RECord when I was coming up with ideas for this because the conversation really helped me think of some directions to go in.
A first draft of a video compiling several of the RECords from the Occupy collab so far.
I LOVE that wirrow added videolala to the collab. It's really the perfect song for this movement. I chose to do this more music video style to let the lyrics speak for themselves. Anyway, I hope this can be useful as part of a bigger piece or perhaps to give someone else an idea:) Already I've seen a bunch more RECords that could be added. Also, I was trying to figure out how to make the O in occupy at the end look like a RECord button and I couldn't :(
I sure hope I got all the image REsources. Let me know if I missed anything.
I've loved this Tiny Story since I first read it... then came cat-cat's illustration and animation, which are both wonderful:)
I decided to add some music and bumpers to make it a little more complete. I'm really happy with the way the REsources all came together for this one:)
You may not have heard
But you’ll never forget
The terrifying tale of
A most murderous duet
Now, it may cause a fright
Taken at just 32 hours old .... my daughter, Stella Mary, is already a proud hitRECorder:)
Thanks again to rejjie for making this adorable hat!
Today (7/27) is my one year hitRECord Anniversary... I know it sounds cliche, but I honestly can't believe it's only been a year. I have learned, loved, laughed so much with new friends, new confidence and pride, new horizons. Thank you to everyone who has made this year with hitRECord so magical <3
This video is a small collection of some of my favorite hitRECord moments ... things I made, time with friends, etc.
Uh... the song faded at the end in my project file and here it just cuts off. Ug. Oh well....
Well, this project I've been working on for the past 8 months is getting close to being done. Here she is in a "3D ultrasound" at 33 1/2 weeks.
Several blurry parts because the child does not stop moving:)
Yep. She's giving us the finger. It kinda reminded me of a Hesher Was Here moment. lol
I literally woke up from a dream of writing this RECord. So I had to:
your forever endeavor.
Instead, be clever
