Sundance 2012: Special event: Hit RECord at the Movies with Joseph Gordon-Levitt
HITRECORD.ORG is a project started by JGL back in 2005 which has evolved into a professional open collaborative production company in which they create and develop art and media collaboratively on the site. It is a place where individuals gather to collect work on projects together: Videos, writing, photography, music etc. In an interview with the LA Time blog, Levitt went on to describe the site as follows:
“ It’s my production company that I started, but it’s a little different from a traditional production company. I didn’t want to work just in Hollywood, I wanted to work with these great artists all over the world who are doing great work on their laptops. They don’t live in Hollywood, they don’t have those connections, but that doesn’t mean they don’t do great work. The idea was to put these projects up online on our website, hitRECord.org, and anybody can come and contribute to them. We call it an open collaborative production company. I direct things and curate things and we end up making short films, music, and art and writing”.
While Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been busy on several projects including the upcoming Dark Knight Rises and Rian Johnson’s Looper, he’s made time for to head out to Sundance, taking his project with him. Here’s the info for anyone lucky enough to be in Park City next month.
