This video is dedicated to my friend of 28 years, Matthew Brian Pierce, who died suddenly and tragically on Wednesday night (5/21) - the night I made this video. I had no idea he had passed away that night and didn't find out until the next morning. "I can still see the stars in your eyes Even when mine are closed." RIP my sweet, loving friend <3 I'd give anything to see his face again and just talk to him or hold him tight <3
Lyrics from Murker's poem titled "Yesterday":
I can still see the stars in your eyes
Even when mine are closed
I can still hear the sound of your sighs
As you peacefully dozed
The memories I still smell
Deep and sweet as from a well
I can still taste the salt of your tears
At the light of dawn
I can still feel the touch of you; years
After you’re gone
Had a lot of problems exporting with Adobe Premiere Pro, so I ended up having to record this video on my computer with a Camera, so it's not the best quality, which sucks....but I was so happy with this video that I wanted to get it uploaded. Also, the timing is off just a tad bit....ugh....
It looks so much better than this I promise!
If I figure out a way to upload the actual video I made from Adobe Premiere CS6...I'll upload that one.
How often do YOU do it?... Be honest!

I've taken up Chinese instruments, mainly guzheng and erhu. I'm not very good yet, but maybe someone can use some snippets here and there for something. If you'd like a Hi res version of the video just comment below.
EVERYONE WITH A CAMERA: RECord your thoughts on the theme RE: THE FUTURE. You can tell a story or discuss various angles on the theme.
Here are some Q&As you can answer (the more specific you are, the better):
Getting some of the mechanics in place for possible flash back sequences featuring a younger Henry Wood. I went with this look for him in an attempt to create some continuity in terms of appearance. Will be working on other motions and characters as well. One in paticular that I am exited about is a scenario in which the servants are wheeling Henry over to either his desk or a chaise lounge.
- The day I learned of Death/The Night I learned ...
00:00-00:49 There's a boy walking in the rain with an umbrella through a field. With each step he takes he visibly ages until he is a full grown man.
00:49-01:19He stumbles on a laying tiger. Sensing something isn't right, he walks closer. He then notices the blood stained grass around the tiger slowly being washed by the rain. Worried, he drops his umbrella and runs to the injured tiger, placing his hands on the tigers slowly rising ribs.
01:19-02:10 The tigers eye jolts open, he turns and looks at the man, who seems to have visibly aged to his child self again as he smiles down at the tiger. The tiger sits up and the two play together in the tall grass. The boy strips off all his clothes and acts as the tiger does.
02:10-02:44 The Tiger comes in close and speaks to the boy, "I am sorry, but I have to go. Thank you. Turn away now, face towards your home." The tiger turns to leave, the boy ignores the Tigers directions and instead watches as the tiger descends down a dirt path.
02:44-03:41 The tiger takes one last breath, turns towards the boy once more, and collapses. The boy picks up his umbrella, puts his clothes on, and walks away as a full grown man again.
Here is the final version of "RE: RE: REmix" that appears on our RE: Patterns episode of HITRECORD ON TV.
Today - February 5th, 2014 - is the 4th anniversay of my joining HitRECord.
Thought I'd mark the occasion by completing this film we shot last year.
I wrote the script, directed it and edited it. Tori and LizSmalls wrote the song with me. Liz sang it and starred. Joerud played piano, and has since added more instrumentation to it. thesherbethead shot it. Margaux Armour did the choreography. Haus_of_Glitch and Tori also acted. tdolan recorded a voiceover part. Everyone who was at the house that week contributed something, whether it was dancing or just throwing bits of paper at Liz. Full list of those wonderful people included at the end of the video.
Finally, an enormous thank you to QuietAndy, who recorded the foley. Which is every sound you hear in this film that is not either music or voice.
There are things I wish I had done differently on the day, and there are things that for technical reasons can't be corrected easily, but I'm incredibly happy with how this turned out.
That's a pretty good synecdoche for my experience in general on HitRECord.
Here's to another four years.
