Ladies and Gentlemen, I have pretty big news… WE WON AN EMMY! To all of the artists, all over the world that contributed their ideas, writing, music, animation, really ANY kind of RECording: thank you, thank you, thank you!! We all earned this together.
We won the award for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media in the category of Social TV Experience, which means that the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has recognized our collaborative efforts in making this show together through hitRECord.org.
So thank you to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for recognizing the efforts of so many who made a show like HITRECORD ON TV possible. While our main focus as a community is to seek validation in the work we do together, it’s truly an honor to have an established institution like the Emmy’s take notice of our collaborative process.
I’d also be remiss if I didn’t thank our amazing network, Pivot, as they took a chance on this show before we even made the first episode.
So I say it again - thank you all!! I can’t wait for Season 2. In fact, if you are ANY kind of artist, come work with us. We’re in production right now, and it’s going really, really well. So come and join us!
I’m super-stoked that we’re sending out over 1,000 Checks totaling more than $700,000 to 2013’s Contributing Artists who reside in 57 different countries all over the world. I am so proud of all the work we did last year - it was an honor to make it all with you.
I know I say this every time we send out checks, but I think it’s worth saying each time. The purpose of hitRECord is not to make money. The purpose of hitRECord is to create meaningful works of art together.
That said, nothing makes me happier than to pay our Contributing Artists for all of the hard work you put into making 2013 our best year yet. I’m excited to collaborate with you again in 2014 and beyond.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m pleased to announce that we are starting production on Season 2 of HITRECORD ON TV! And, for our 1st request of the season, let’s start gathering Theme Ideas for our next 8 episodes of television.
EVERYONE: Contribute a Text Record w/ your Season 2 Theme idea by Mon. 4/14.
