Joseph Gordon-Levitt

In 2004, Joseph Gordon-Levitt started a website project called
hitRECord.org, which is an online collaborative production company. Since its inception, it has gathered over 10,000 participants making stories, short films, music, and images.

hitRECord at the Movies gives JGL the opportunity to showcase some of the work being created from the site. He also encourages the people at the show to record it, so the footage can later be used for future projects. Tonight's event was at the Regency Ballroom on Van Ness, and when we got there, the line was super long.

Among the featured films was an animated short about the Prop 8 trial called
They Can't Turn The Lights Off.


Some of the shorts have JGL doing voice overs, and during a screening of one of these,
Morgan and Destiny's Eleventeenth Date, he did the narration live. That was pretty cool.


Other highlights included live performances by
Latyrx (Lateef the Truth Speaker and Japanese American rapper Lyrics Born).


To close the show, JGL played a few songs on his guitar. He finished with Jacques Brel's "La Valse à Mille Temps".


I think these events leave the audience thinking about contributing which is awesome. I'm behind anything that inspires creativity, and this is just such a great idea to get people interested in collaboration. hitRECord is a very worthwhile project, and I hope it becomes a successful venture for him and the others that get involved.
