Spend a few minutes over at Hit Record – the art collaborative headed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt – and you find all sorts of things. Experimental electronica mixed with country music that acts as the inspiration for a short story. A photograph of an old house that becomes a short film. A writing prompt that evolves into a series of water color portraits. The skill level ranges from the kind of high school creative fiction magazine you’d cringe at to the truly magnificent, but no matter where people land on the craftsmanship scale, creativity is never in short supply.
Film School Rejects
offers an interesting solution to the lack of creative freedom in the studio system these days: letting the community at hitRECord
remake all the movies from now on.
