A little background on the site. It was created by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his brother Daniel. Hundreds of writers, artists, and creative types join together to collaborate on projects for his production company. Anyone can join the site and contribute material whether it's poetry, short stories, music, screenplays, acting talents or original artwork. If any of your work is used in productions, you get paid.
HitRECord has a new television variety show. They've also screened some of the collaborations at Sundance. They've created books filled with works from the community, too.
I just love how they pull talent from the thousands of normal, everyday people who join the site to create these community-based projects that highlight diversity and creativity. It's like immersing yourself in a swimming pool filled with talent.
This story was on the first television show. It was a story submitted by one writer. The voice over, art and music was contributed by other members. I believe the actors volunteered their talents. On the site, you can see who contributed to each production.
Okay. Now you can go check it out!
On a side note, I was nominated for a blog award! I'll have more on that this weekend. I have to do some research and answer questions. I need to prepare properly for it!
That's it for this week's theme. Not sure what I'll be doing next week, but I hope you'll come back to see! If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
