Here’s a cartoon from HITRECORD ON TV's episode RE: PATTERNS about the history of how people have repeatedly predicted the end of the world. This collaboration started with a concept by Proi and the script was written and performed by Day Glo. wirrow animated together tons of visuals from the hitRECord community, and the rest is history.

You can watch the full episode on Pivot. It airs Saturday, March 1st at 10pET / 7pPT.

For our HITRECORD ON TV episode RE: MONEY, we performed this song all about falling in love with money. This collaboration began with lyrics written by saintmaker that were turned into a song by humunkulus. During our live venue shoot at the Masonic Lodge in LA, humunkulus, LiaSimone, and I performed the song and 12.42 animated visual contributions together into this piece that I’m really proud of.

HITRECORD ON TV’s entire episode RE: MONEY premieres this Saturday on Pivot - 10e/7p. Also available on iTunes and Amazon Prime.

Thanks again <3

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

"Stoner Bootlaces" is one of my favorite examples on hitRECord of a record being remixed. WATCH HERE

Ryan Patrick edited together this hilarious remix of "Strawberry Bootlaces," which was a collaborative short film we made together based on the writing by Day Glo (United Kingdom,) a score composed by ozie (United States,) and illustrations from the community that MarieIv (St. Petersburg) animated together with the green screen footage I performed.

We had screened the original “Strawberry Bootlaces” at Sundance in 2012, and months later Ryan Patrick revisited the collaboration and made this. It goes to show that a record on hitRECord can always continue to evolve within the community.

Thanks again <3
