HitRECord Emmy

HitRECord on TV Emmy Card

 

This card showed up in my mail the other day, thanking me for my contribution to HitRECord on TV’s Emmy win for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media.

For those who don’t know, HitRECord is an online collaborative art community started by Joseph Gordon-Levitt back in 2005. It’s since evolved into a production company that makes books, short films, music and a variety show from the creations that its 80,000+ users upload and remix.

I haven’t had time to contribute anything to the HitRECord community in quite a while but I’m glad it’s still active and stronger than ever, fueled by Joe’s infective creative spirit.

If any of you out there are looking for a place to share your artwork/stories/photos/music/poetry/animation/editing skills and you want to see what others can transform those creations into, go hit up HitRECord. It’s also a great place to riff on other people’s ideas. Anyone can contribute.

And I see Season 1 of HitRECord on TV is now available on Netflix! If you see a herringbone pattern in any of the HitRECord stuff, there’s a decent chance it’s one I drew.

Ghost Projekt TV Series in Development at NBC

Ghost Projekt - Control Room Splatter

That’s right, GHOST PROJEKT is once again taking a stab at haunting your television sets. As reported at Deadline.com

NBC has put in development Ghost Projekt, a drama based on the Oni Press graphic novel series written by Joe Harris and illustrated by Steve Rolston. Written by John Glenn and feature writer/director André Øvredal (Troll Hunter), the show centers on an American UN weapons inspector and a Russian FSB agent who are forced to team up to chase a group of thieves before they end up spreading dangerous supernatural material stolen from an old abandoned Soviet weapons lab. Feature writer/director Øvredal will direct the pilot and serve as co-executive producer.

I really enjoyed Troll Hunter so I’m particularly excited to see what Øvredal will do with Ghost Projekt.
