BIG NEWS! Before it premieres on TV, we’re gonna release the first episode of HITRECORD ON TV online early — on Monday, Jan. 6th! In anticipation, I’m pleased to present to you the very first short film of the season, “First Stars I See Tonight.”

Collaboratively made on our site, hitRECord.org, this short film began with a text record roswellgray (United States) contributed recounting the true story of the first time she ever saw the stars when she was 16 years old. I adapted the story into a script and KatSmash (Scotland) RECorded narration. We shot the actors Elle Fanning and James Patrick Stuart in front of a green screen and a ton of visual artists on the site began to illustrate the world around them. The animator 12.42 (United Kingdom) took visual contributions and animated them all together. megancarnes (United States) composed a beautiful musical score and musicians from all over the world played along.

HITRECORD ON TV is a half-hour variety show with short films, live performances, music, cartoons, and of course, MORE! It’s gonna be on a new cable channel called Pivot and I think you guys are reeeally gonna like it. I can’t wait for you all to check out the first episode, “RE: The Number One,” when we release it extra early on Monday, Jan. 6th!

Thanks again <3
