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?

I am super stoked to announce that "Don Jon's Addiction" - the movie I wrote & directed - just closed a really great deal and it's going to come out all over the world!
This movie was made traditionally, as opposed to our collective collaborative process here at hitRECord. One day I do hope to make a feature film that way with you guys. I think the success that "Don Jon" has achieved so far will really help us in our future endeavors as a production company.
I do want to say that I have learned so much being hitRECord's Director - working on all of our short films & various other productions. I could not have done "Don Jon's Addiction" without all of the experience here on hitRECord & I owe you guys a lot!
And Thanks Again!
CALLING EVERYONE! LET'S START MAKING ART TOGETHER AROUND THE THEME OF CHILDHOOD!
We want to begin making records together regarding the theme of CHILDHOOD! For many of us Childhood is a time of pretend & playing with your imagination. So let's take this theme (which was contributed by RECorder van-gramsci) & see what we can create as a community. We could even end up making an entire Live Show around this theme featuring different Short Films, Music, etc.
You can contribute your RE: Childhood records to the collaboration here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/897689
Here's how you can contribute to this collaboration:
EVERYONE: RECord yourself talking into a camera about Childhood & upload your video to the site. Some topics could be What do you remember most about your childhood? or What's your earliest memory?
PARENTS: Make art with your kids for this collaboration! You could RECord them telling a story or reacting to a story or character from hitRECord. Perhaps they'll create their own artwork. NOTE: Please only RECord your own children!
VIDEO EDITORS: Download footage on hitRECord regarding Childhood & start cutting it together into short films.
WRITERS: Write a story RE: Childhood.
ILLUSTRATORS: Draw a picture or create a character (or series of characters) RE: Childhood.
CURATORS: You can create & curate Albums of records from hitRECord that revolve around this theme.
NOTE: Since Marcel Proust's novel "A La Recherche Du Temps Perdu" is in the Public Domain, we could also remix the text for this collaboration. Perhaps we could select a sentence from this novel about childhood & make a short film out of it. How else can we use this novel as a resource? Let us know!

When I first opened my account with hitRECord my eyes fell instantly upon this drawing by MonCoeurDeVerre, "On Mockingbird Wings", and it inspired me to create this piece, "A Part of Me."
