So, love love the remix Roboj did of Ravens. Loved the video that tagooey cut to it using a bunch of my footage. Love the original song by metaphorest and is that albert singing along as the dude?(morning hallows!!!)
All the talk about feminism and femininity lately and women's rights and what it is to be a woman ... got me thinking. I probably shot 3 different versions of this, and the putting it together was only indicitive of what it was after i shot it. As it is when you shoot/are in something. I did one take with full make up, and then another more masucline coloring. I often have played male roles, almost as many roles as I've played as a female. One side of my face looks more feminine the other half looks more masculine, as i've noticed from getting my picture taken for a job.
I think when we are young women we take on this more masculine role to protect ourselves, when we become mothers we soften, and experience our femininity in true form. I also think that in context with this song, this confusion amoung young women is a balance, it can confuse us and sadden us and leave us feeling all alone, lost in our gender.
The male and female voices in this song, work so beautifully together. I attempted to sing along to the man parts for the masucline version and the main part for the feminine version. thats why the mouth is all over the place.
I feel like its always a balance, with depression and with gender. We always have to figure out our own balance.
When i layed the two over one another, i really liked the dimension it created. So i took the task of key framing every other frame.. it was like.. finger breaking work. Was thinking of uploading the raw files separated in a zip folder if requested. I'll do it if you ask or If I'm bored one day.
So i guess for now, i'm all about recording myself doing something on camera and cutting it to music and uploading it now.... its'cool. I'm cool with that. its fun for me, and maybe you can use it.

2012 REmix arrangement & production by meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
This REmix contains only samples from the RECords resourced. No outside/extra RECordings were used.
this took nearly a full year after the original bass line & 'Ravens' RECords were released for me to 'crack' the idea for an arrangement that worked.
back in April 2011, i downloaded the audio stems that Albert, Sarah, and Matt uploaded to the site, and after trying some ideas that ended up not going aywhere, decided to put this REmix on hold until I could think of something suitable. Sometimes the best ideas come much later. Sometimes, it's better to put your impulses aside and allow time to pass...
in January 2012, I came up with the idea of looping Matt & Sarah's ending vocal lines which created the proper foundation, along with Albert's bass, for the song to move in a cohesive, structured direction. Everything else, the drums, guitar solo, format, followed suit.
And there you have it.
many thanks to Albert, Matt & Sarah <3
So this video is actually based on 12.42 awesome remix "Why i love HitRECord", evolution of a record :)
It's about creative process, making remixes, about hitrecord, etc.
For all the amazing people here on hitrecord, and
Happy Birthday Joe!
P.S. I don't like to cut music, but it's 5 min long, so I had to. It is really really great, by megancarnes, and you should listen to it from the beginning to the end.
inspired by customized punk jackets with hand written slogans.
feel free to plonk on a head if you think it needs one XD x
(I added this to the Summer Collection collab because I know we have sold posters in the past and thought that this could possibly be produced as a poster print.)
Since the end of the show, I've been trying to figure out the best way to express all of my jumbled thoughts and feelings about it. Watching the livestream, I felt moments of excitement and indescribable pride. SO many times, I smiled and laughed, marveling at all that we have accomplished - a few times, I winced and bit my knuckles in uncertainty.
When I woke up this morning, I wasn't sure what I wanted to say. And so, I started cutting up some paper. And soon I realized, as the pieces came together, we have SO much to celebrate. Some things last night were PERFECT, and others were rough and a little awkward - but that's the great thing about hitRECord. We try new things, we take chances, and we move forward in brand new ways. I love what we've accomplished so far, and I can't wait to see what comes next!
i put this together quickly and roughly. on the one hand i like the lightness/roughness of it contrasting with the serious tone of the audio, on the other it might be spelling things out which are meant to be left to interpretation. if u think it doesn't work well by itself please use any bits you like in your own vid!
This is my 1st complete edit of "Little Red Riding Hood." Let me know what you guys think!
This is the first time that I've taken part in a collaboration like this.
Hello! This is my first post on Hitrecord, discovered it on the weekend and just had to do my rendition of Fred.
I wanted him to kind of look like a toy, as the story reminded me of a kids poem, and I liked the idea of him wearing a hat to try to hide his quirks, but they just burst out the top anyway. This is a polished version, but I'll post some rough sketches of him in other views, and without the hat.
