tdolan and myself have a bit of spare time tomorrow so we are challenging you to send us a script in the next 24 hours and challenging us to actually make a short film out of it in a day. Please don't make it too complicated (location, props and special effects-wise). We really just have Taylor as the actress, my camera and Houston as the backdrop.
Looking forward to what you're coming up with!! Thanks!

The main thing we need are people singing the chorus. I want as many people to cut to as possible. I'm looking more for the video and not audio. So even if you just lip sync it that would be awesome.
A bunch of the interview spots I used didn't show up when I tried to resource them and I think it's because they were all called "RE: work" Maybe try renaming your file something more specific. Just add your name to it. That way it's easier for the system to find it. If not I'll just add the link to your video I used in the description here in the next couple of days.
Here's my first real edit of the work rap collaboration. It still needs a lot of work though.
I could definitely use more content though. I need more B-roll of people actually working. So if you guys could film more of yourselves actually working and doing what you do that would be a big help.
Also we need more rapping. I want to put in a few more 8 or 16 bar verses of rapping. I have a couple more I plan on putting in but the more the merrier.
Seriously great work so far though. I think this is going to be legit when it's done.
Also if I forgot to resource your record please let me know and I'll resource it ASAP. Thanks. :)

This is my attempt at creating a '10 second making of' for the brilliant animation of 'Mademoiselle Noir' by MarieIv.
This idea was simoultaneously inspired by three collabs: RE: Work, RE: Loops, and Days and Ends. I was thinking about how to capture the repetitive, cyclical, mundane loop that can sometimes be the 9-5 office work week. I originally conceived of it as a text - albeit a very bare bones text - and then decided to represent it visually.
Most of it was shot on my iPhone (and on location - fancy!), with the lunch and computer screen portions shot on my little Canon Powershot. I used Krrr's "Quirky, " but I'm open to suggestions on musical changes or any changes/thoughts/suggestions you guys may have.
CALLING ALL CINEMATOGRAPHERS! Come work w/ us on our new Short Film!
We're going to remix wirrow's record "give me all the flickering lights" into a Short Film that captures all the wonders of life and the magic of existence through light.
You can contribute your records to the "Flickering Lights" collaboration here:
Here's how YOU can contribute to this collaboration:
CINEMATOGRAPHERS: Let's film as much high-quality footage of flickering light as possible to edit into this Short Film! You could shoot light that occurs naturally from the stars or the sun, or you could shoot artificial light like city lights or neon signs.
Here are some helpful tips from cinematographer Tarin Anderson on how you can most effectively shoot light:
* You could try shooting in "Full Manual Mode"
* You could try a Frame Rate of 24fps or 30fps
* Your Shutter Speed should generally be equivalent to your Frame Rate (so 24fps = 1/50th Shutter Speed and 30fps = 1/60th Shutter Speed)
* You could try setting your ISO around 100 for bright exteriors or between 1200-1600 for dark interiors or exteriors
* You could also set your White Balance based on the pre-set options of your camera and where you're shooting
* And of course experiment, try all different kinds of settings, and have fun!
We are also pleased to announce that the good folks at Sony are sending out several Alpha NEX-5R cameras to specific members of our community that we picked because they have demonstarted a commitment over time to Cinematography and Photography. You can check out a gallery of their Image Records here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/973333
Thank you to Sony for recognizing our creative community and providing us with tools to create. <3
We just announced our Mini-Tour of Live Shows over at www.hitRECord.org/tour so everything we're working on here at hitRECord has the potential to screen at one of our shows, or be included in one of our works of publishing, on a DVD, or maybe on a vinyl record we all make together.
As always, all of the profits of our money-making productions get split with the contributing artists 50/50 on hitRECord.
And, as you may or may not know, we recently announced that Sony has formed a very special partnership with hitRECord and is supporting our community for the rest of the year. They are going to help us get equipment for our upcoming tour, distribute some of our videos far and wide over the Internet, and they'll be helping us pay our contributing artists far more than we've ever been able to before!

AND NOW, FOR SOME EXCITING NEWS! Levi's® is coming on board through the end of the year to support the hitRECord community and help us share our art more broadly than ever before. Check out this video for more. I'm super-stoked about it!
Levi's® has quite a history of supporting innovative art and artists. I'm honored that hitRECord and our community are joining the long list of artists that Levi's has collaborated with, which include Shephard Fairey, The Andy Warhol Foundation, Damien Hirst, and James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem.
2012 is shaping up to be a pretty busy year for hitRECord. Later in the year we're doing a mini tour of our Live Shows with the support of Levi's. They are also going to be distributing our more polished videos far and wide on the Interwebs. And not only that, we'll all be collaborating to create a limited edition piece of art together.
And as a result of this collaboration, we'll be able to pay our contributing artists way more than we've ever been able to before!

So I think it would be cool for everyone to show off their REC ROOM. Think of this as the hitRECord version of "Cribs" but the focus being on how you create your art and where.
No matter what you do wether it's write, paint, video edit, music, etc. You have a place where you do that and feel most comfortable doing it. So show it off. Maybe even share what programs you use.
I use Final Cut Pro 7, Logic Pro 9 and I dabble in After Effects and Photoshop.
Can't wait to see how you hit RECord.
More stuff! Plus I incorporated ppeppina's Bird Song since it uses synths from The Grind.
