OTT & Transmedia : Hitrecord by James Hammer

James Hammer


Here's a pretty amazing collaborative tool with lots of transmedia application... I came across this Joseph Gordon-Levitt venture a few years ago, but just didn't really have the time to immerse myself in the experience. It seems pretty cool, and for those looking for ongoing collaborations that could eventually experience some monetization, this is a great place to call home. One of my former students has recently experienced a little success on the site... his lyrics for a catchy little diddy called "Space Dame" found its voice and some instrumentation: I reallly think this site could be a fun creative distraction for some. There's lots to do there, and there are limitless possibilities for creating and distributing a project on a variety of platforms.

What is this world I gaze at out my window? Why must it be ever grim?

Agree, James. It's an interesting platform. Built with all the right intentions.

It's fantastic what Joseph Gorden-Levitt has created here.

I've been a hit recorder for a few years now. It's actually what helped me get back into writing after I'd given it up for a few years. When you're writing a script it can be difficult because you go through weeks and months without ever feeling like you've accomplished anything because you don't have a finished product. I would go on hitrecord and find a writing prompt of some kind and just do something quick and easy and fun. Every once and a while you just need to see that you can finish something. It was from there that I decided to go back to screen writing and my first tv pilot that I've finished actually came from a sketch that I'd written for hit record. That was a long winded way of saying that I love hitrecord and highly recommend it.
