CALLING ALL ARTISTS: Come make art w/ us regarding the theme of “The Impossible Dream.”
I just finished acting in a movie called "THE WALK", directed by Robert Zemeckis. The film is based on Philippe Petit’s dream to walk across the World Trade Center towers on a tightrope in 1974 — I play Philippe. My favorite part of this story is that Phillipe had this impossible dream that he was able to achieve with courage, conviction and persistence. This inspired me to create a new collaboration on hitRECord RE: THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM.
One of the main ways you can contribute is by RECording yourself on camera talking about an Impossible Dream you have -and then filming yourself doing it. You could also do a Q&A on camera talking about an Impossible Dream you have already achieved, or one that you are in the process of trying to accomplish.
You can also CLICK HERE to visit the official site of “THE WALK.”

“Such a sweet short film and a great contribution to the RE: Work collaboration. It’s easy to focus on the negative aspects of the working world, but here’s an instance where going to work isn’t always a terrible one! The charming & hopeful inner monologues compounded with the strong chemistry between the two leads is really strong & left me desperate to know what happens next!
I love being able to see the way a RECord can snowball collaboratively and this is a great example of that process! And, of course, this is magical in its current form, but would you be willing to put a version up without music? And maybe even the audio stems and raw footage…? Not only would the resources themselves be useful (e.g. those general office sounds) but I’d love to see where this might go next and I can see it being re-used & re-imagined in countless ways in the community. What does anyone else think? What could be the next step on this RECord’s journey?”
I am super stoked to announce that "Don Jon’s Addiction" - the movie I wrote & directed - just closed a really great deal and it’s going to come out all over the world!
This movie was made traditionally, as opposed to our collective collaborative process here at hitRECord. One day I do hope to make a feature film that way with you guys. I think the success that “Don Jon” has achieved so far will really help us in our future endeavors as a production company.
I do want to say that I have learned so much being hitRECord’s Director - working on all of our short films & various other productions. I could not have done “Don Jon’s Addiction” without all of the experience here on hitRECord & I owe you guys a lot!
