350 post-its. 33 colors. 4 glue sticks. 2 weeks.
I am incredibly proud of this piece like crazyinsanejumpingupanddownstoopid proud of this piece.
(The rays are so straight, it makes me want to cry.)
Consider this my vote for a new hevn reboot.
download for bigger size and better quality ^_^
4 days. 19 colors (including crane colors). 300 post-its. ??? cranes (I'll let you know when I take 'em down).
Be sure to check out xobreexo23's original photograph heeeeeeeere
To see this with super dramatic shadows click heeeeeeere
Illustrations are easier to remix for post-it projects, but after seeing bree's photograph on hitRECord's tumblr, I knew I'd kick myself if I at least didn't try to remix it. It was challenging and difficult dealing with lines and shadows that I never had to deal with before.
The cranes were originally going to be drawn on white post-its outlined with different colored sharpies, but the blurriness of the cranes in bree's photo made it difficult to know which line went where. Part of the appeal of bree's photo is the birds' blurriness because it gives the feeling of flight. It also gives the feeling of awe and confusion for the viewer because you're left wondering how the hell she did that. So I nixed the drawn cranes idea and decided to fold the cranes myself. Placement was tricky, but it worked out in the end. I love having the cranes pop off the post-it giving the whole project a 3D feel -- something new.
Anyways, go subscribe to xobreexo23 if you haven't. She's a superb artist and her photographs and animations are phenomenal.
Pretty proud of this project :)
- THIS LOOKS BETTER DOWNLOADED.
- There are credits at the end of this video because this project is doubling as my final project for a film class. We have to make a 3-5 min video (documentary, narrative, experimental, etc.) and the first idea that came to mind was Patterns & Prayers. Before I could go ahead with this project, I had to ask permission from my professor and TA. I explained what hitRECord was, the collaboration process, and how uploading my final project to the site would be easier to credit video, audio, and image resources rather than uploading it to vimeo or YouTube. They OK'd it. There are credits at the end so they understand that none of this footage, images, and audio is mine. I purely edited.
- MattConley is credited as the audio resource because I stripped the audio from his Live Cut (also resourced below).
- I've always loved Joe's poem and this live performance. If you haven't seen his original performance of this poem, you should.
Hope you enjoy <3
I always hesitate when it comes to answering this question. Maybe you can answer it?
Answer the question above with a word, phrase, or a sentence.
The answer could range from "a foot long meatball marinara sub with lettuce and mustard on whole wheat" to "Summer, 1984."
Tell me what you want. I'll write your answer on one of my post-it notes and take another photograph.
more than 230 post-its used. cleaner logo than v1.the blinking red rec isn't as smooth tho. i'm thinking of doing a couple more of these with different transitions, effects, and audio. feel free to resource/remix!
Just wanted to do a portrait of a well known hitRECorder. This is what I came up with. I was experimenting with drawing/animation/post-its and this is the result. It turned out pretty well except for the shakiness (I'm investing in a tripod soon). Anyways, this took 234 post-its and 17 days to create...hopefully you can see the effort. and wirrow? This one's for you.
It might be a bit early thinking about this, buuuuut...
There are tons of amazing photographs from the various live shows hitRECord has done. Why not use some of these live show photographs as BRB bumpers in the style of Scenes from A Fictional Film?
Instead of a line of dialogue, the subtitle would be [be right back] or just plain "be right back". I think these would work exceptionally well if they were moving images like the ones that have been featured recently. The audio that accompany it can just be pre-show crowd chatter or applause.
Also, these photos don't just have to be the ones from the live shows strictly for the TV show, but the ones from The Fall Formal, hitRECord On The Road, hitRECord At The Movies, Sundance, or even Summer In The City! Photos can be onstage!Joe oriented, but they can also show what's happening backstage whether it's Jared on the laptop, Dr. Gory getting his camera ready, or jeffpeff fixing sound.
Bottom line: Use live show (onstage and backstage) photographs in the style of SFAFF as BRB Bumpers.
What do you think?
This is my first attempt at adding some visuals to saintmaker's testimonial.
Comments on how to improve in the next draft and suggestions about what other footage could be used are always welcome :)
The little girl whispered to the star,"Do you want to hear a dream of mine? Promise me, you'll keep it forever and never leave it out of sight."
So the star held onto the little girl's dream and shone brightly so even in the darkest of nights, the little girl would always see it...
"oh my god! What is that?!"
"that thing!! On your face!"
"well that's not nice to say."
"but--but it's just so...distracting..."
"again, not a nice thing to say."
"but i cant get over it! Its like popping out to say 'hello' to me or something then shake my hand. I mean what is that, you know? Its so...ugly."
"EXCUSE ME??? I have that same reaction everytime I look at your face but I don't say it out loud."
"well that's not a nice thing to say."
**a more serious dialogue tale**
A: Did it hurt?
B: Painless. Don't know why I didn't do it earlier.
A: Not funny.
B: Oh c'mon--
A: Not funny.
B: You used to love my jokes. Why are you so quiet?
A: I don't want to talk about it.
B: Oh c'mon. We're --
A: NO! Okay? When you took your life away you might as well have taken away mine too. Because I don't feel like myself anymore!! I--I can't see my son grow up because I'm too busy supporting my parents who are a few breaths away from being vegetables!! Who I used to be, DIED when you did! You did that to ME.
B: I didn't mean to hurt anyone.
A: Well, guess what. You did. You hurt me. You killed me.
B: I won't apologize for it.
A: Figures...even with all this hell-bent hatred towards you, I still manage to--
B: Miss you, too.
A: And you know why right?
B: Because we're blood.
"Oh my god, they're everywhere!"
"Just let it be."
"THEY'RE EVERYWHERE! HOW CAN YOU JUST LET THEM BE? MY GOD."
"NO! I can't move on if everywhere I turn, there's going to be one."
"Did you see the game last night--"
"Don't try to change the subject!! You're trying to distract me from these things."
"Will you just stop being such a baby and go already."
"Don't 'dude' me. They're everywhere and I refuse to move anywhere until they have left. So don't try to distract me because it won't work. If you want to go, then go! Leave me here with these...things. They should leave first because I was here FIRST!"
"uhmmm...I don't know how to tell you this, but...there's one on you right now."
Challenge MET! This RECord is in response to AnneMarije's challenge of contributing to wirrow's City Autopsy collab. The only thing not San Francisco-related is the LA 1984 Olympics pin, but the owner of all the things in this autopsy attended the Olympics and I thought it was soooo fucking cool that I HAD to include it. Anyways, this is a city autopsy of San Francisco circa 1985!
My dad saved some of the letters I wrote to Santa and I thought they'd be a great addition to the RE: Childhood collab.
You might notice a gap between the word "its" and "enough" on the third note. I didn't know how to use the word "enough" at that age so I wrote "I hope its not enough" then erased it when Dad corrected me.
Also I think it's really smart to start out a letter to Santa with the sentence "I was good." Just in case, he was doubting where my standing was.
As Gaby said in her video, I am part of the "Inception" hitRECord group.
I joined the site after watching Joe's interview with Jimmy Fallon in August 2010. The way he talked about it made me want to see what this passion project was. I soon discovered that it's more than just a project. It's a community.
A lot can happen in two years. When I first joined, I was entering my senior year of high school. Going on hitRECord kept me sane from studying for the SATs and writing up college applications. Then my first year of college came. This site was a familiar place compared to the foreign environment I found myself in. Now, I'm enjoying my last few weeks of summer before entering my second year.
My whole family has a creative outlet. My dad has photography. My mom has voiceover work. My brother has design. I have hitRECord.
Thank you for an unforgettable past two years. You encouraged me to jump over the moon and beyond. For that, I am grateful.
Let's do it all again, by heart.
With Love & Victory Ice Cream,
SUNDAYS ARE FOR SUNDAES...AND RE-RECS!
1. Dreams - sbbude42
I love everything about the piece from the subtle color to the facial expression to the fan. When I see her, I wonder what or who(m?) she is looking at/dreaming about. That could be expressed through writing or illustration. Otherwise, well done!
2. Tired illustration - Aica
Super simple drawing. It's nothte first think you would think of after reading this tiny story, but that's kinda why it's so good; it's unexpected! I like the bunny's body language and I also like the leaf too :)
3. Just Now...Imagery - VoodooRew
I used to wonder what this tiny story would look like drawn out, but I need not wonder anymore! Very nice!
4. The eye-cockroach - PauBaronC
The title kinda made me shiver, but then it prompted me to find the cockroach! This is an amazing illustration because it's interesting to look at and makes you wonder what the hell it is you're look at lol I like it <3
5. hitRECord Retrospacer remix - VoodooRew
Sassy and sexy in space. I would like a teddy bear thrown in there somewhere ;)
Have a superb week everyone!!
