CALLING ALL VISUAL ARTISTS & MUSICIANS: LET'S MAKE A SHORT FILM FOR THIS MAGICAL WINTER SONG!
Nathan and Katie of FauxFix RECorded a song in The REC Room at Sundance entitled "Little Smokestacks." It's a beautifully atmospheric song about that magical time in winter when the days are disintegrating and there's a short period of time where the sun is going down and night is rising.
And we're going to make a NEW SHORT FILM for this track!
Listen to the Reference Mix of "Little Smokestacks" here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/1178732
Please contribute all of your records to the Collaboration here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/1198237
Here's how you can contribute to this collaboration:
ILLUSTRATORS: Draw visuals for the song. They can be landscapes, characters, or entirely abstract - be as creative as you'd like!
ANIMATORS: Take visuals from this collaboration - and throughout the site - and begin to put them into motion.
CINEMATOGRAPHERS: Grab your cameras and shoot some winter imagery that's inspired by the song.
VIDEO EDITORS: Start cutting together visuals from the site to the Audio Record. Check out the "RE: Snow" collaboration for some wintery resources: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/1117165
VOCALISTS: Sing some Harmonies or RECord yourself singing "Ooh"s and "Ahh"s so they can be remixed together to simulate the sound of breath.
INSTRUMENTALISTS: It'd be great to have some Electronic Beats added, in addition to other Instruments and Sound Effects.
NOTE: The Audio Stems for "Little Smokestacks" can be downloaded and remixed here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/1180548

This is a little whimsical piano layer I improvised this morning after being inspired by Stephen Trask's, "Stay Away" song. A beautiful and haunting melody he created; this is immediately what came out of me after listening to the track. Hope you guys like it as it is my first upload to HitREC. All thoughts and comments welcome. Thank you. For more of my content and music, you can visit www.youtube.com/BlackMediaPresents
Sundays are for RE-RECs!

The Mask, is a stop-motion piece of a young woman heading out to a masquerade party, but the mask won't play nice back. Refusing to be put on someone's face.
(Would love to see what others on hitrecord.org can do with it! Enjoy!)
A lot of amazing things happened in The REC ROOM here at Sundance 2013! All sorts of artists - RECorders new and old - stopped by to collaborate with us on a variety of cool collaborations. And we had a full studio set up to RECord it all!
Highlights included eaneikciv RECording some contributions to the "Family Band" collaboration, Stephen Trask sing a Tiny Tune that we are going to remix and make into a Short Film, crunchycrown & drdavey performing a voice over for the "Subway Existentialist" Dialogue Tale, tdolan breaking out some ink and illustrated some Tiny Stories, and our good friends at SONY provided us with Vaio computers to RECord with as well as NEX-5 and A57 cameras that were lent to festival-goers to film footage for the "RE: Snow" collaboration.
We have RECorded at Sundance three times already and we hope the tradition continues! It goes without saying that besides all the physical stuff that happened in The REC ROOM, what makes it extra special is that the hitRECord community all over the world contributed to all of these collaborations as well.
Big thanks to SONY for powering our REC ROOM's technology!
NOTE: Resources from the SONY Loaner Program will be uploaded as soon as possible.
