And now I proudly present to you a new cut of our collaborative HITRECORD short film "In a City." I was really excited to get to make two versions of "In a City" so we could explore a wider range of cities, cultures and experiences.


This version was shot by 54 cinematographers from all over the world, and it is so, so powerful to see the diversity of scenes and locations, which include the following cities:


Alexandria City
Athens
Bogota
Budapest
Cairo
Canberra
Chengdu
Detroit
Edinburgh
Hoi An
Hong Kong
Kuala Lumpur
Lima
London
Los Angeles
Mannheim
Montreal
New York City
Ogden
Osaka
Park City
Paris
Portland
Prague
Rio de Janeiro
Rotterdam
Sao Paulo
Seoul
St. Petersburg
Taipei
Toronto
Tokyo
Vienna
Washington, D.C.
York
Zagreb


This short film's a testament to the global scope of the HITRECORD community, and I loved getting to work on it with you.


My thanks to all of the cinematographers, musicians, writers, and VO artists who contributed to this collaboration. I hope you love it as much as I do.


Thanks again <3

Welcome To HITRECORD
RegularJOE Released Apr 07, 2014

Ya know, a lot of people ask me "What is HITRECORD?" So, I made this new video to explain what it is & how you can contribute to our collaborative productions.

HITRECORD is different than your typical Hollywood production company. Anyone with the Internet can contribute to our collaborative projects & this website  is where we come to make things together, like Short Films, Books, Music, Art, and our latest & greatest production - our television show: HITRECORD ON TV.

You can contribute your Video, Image, Text, or Audio RECords to any of the collaborations we're working on, or you can start your own collaboration on the site.

And if your work gets used in a money-making production, we pay you for it. For their work in 2013, the community is receiving a grand total of $737,175.09.

So, thanks for stopping by. Hope you stick around, I'd love to work with you. Are you RECording?

Thanks again <3

Ladies & Gentlemen, I’m very proud to present "In a City", a collaborative short film we made with the support of Samsung Camera.

 

It's a film about walking through cities - about the textures and character of the streets you know, and the streets you don't. It's based around a collaborative poem - beautifully written and performed by talented artists from the hitRECord community.

 

For this version of the film, we gave 6 cinematographers a brand new Samsung NX1 camera and sent them out into their city.

 

We got back beautiful footage from all over the world. This here version is shot entirely on the NX1 and is presented here in 4k, and these are the talented HitRECord cinematographers that made it possible:

 

• Cairo (shot by Omar Khaled)

• Prague (shot by zitadavid)

• London (shot by JoshPatmore)

• Sheffield (shot by Jordcarroll)

• Tokyo (shot by slicecheeze)

• Rio de Janeiro (shot by ellenferreira)

 

For the seventh city, I went out and shot footage in my hometown - Los Angeles.

 

I think we all made something really awesome together, and I'm so proud of it.

 

So, to the talented cinematographers, writers, voice over artists, and musicians who worked on this project to make it possible - thank you.


And thanks again. <3

We Won an Emmy!
RegularJOE Released Aug 13, 2014

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!

Thanks again

Ladies and gentlemen, I am beside myself with joy and anticipation :oD It is my sincere pleasure to present the very first episode of HITRECORD ON TV! Watch the entire first episode here before it premieres on television. WATCH EPISODE #1 HERE

Everything you're gonna see on this show was made collaboratively on our site -- hitRECord.org -- and the work of 426 Contributing Artists is featured in this particular episode. There's gonna be 8 episodes this season, each revolving around a different theme, like RE: Space, RE: The Other Side, and RE: Money. And since this is our first ever episode, I figured the theme of this one would be RE: The Number One. HITRECORD ON TV will be coming out on January 18th on a new cable channel called Pivot.

I'm deeply proud of this show, and I think you're realllllly gonna like it. Honestly, making this thing together with all the artists from around the world in our hitRECord community has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life so far. So, without any further ado, enjoy the show!

Thanks again <3
