What I was treated to was an amalgamation of different artists' writings, drawings, readings, music in a very unique and fun way. It was funny because I started it right as my husband was walking back to his gaming station after a bathroom break and he stopped in his tracks to see what I was watching because it was so interesting. He stayed standing because presumably he was going back to play a game but he ended up watching the whole episode, standing in the middle of the living room. At the end I said, "Do you want to watch this with me?" With out a pause he said, let me just save my game and I'll be right there.
So what is this show exactly? Well I urge you to just check it out because it really is a great show that I think would appeal to just about most people but here's a brief explanation. Hit RECord on TV is a new kind of variety show. Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosts the show which features short films, live performances, music, animation, conversation, and more from an online community, hitRECORD, with each episode focusing on a different theme. (And by the way, if you just love Joseph Gordon-Levitt you will even more as he continually shows more of his talents as well)
After quickly finishing the first season (the only available on Netflix right now) I thought I would check out the website where they do all these collaborations, hitRECORD. I was even more impressed with what JGL had put together because, well, he honestly believes in featuring all people's work and the best part . . . he actually wants to compensate you fairly for it! And who better to explain how it all works than JGL himself?!
I think this idea is so awesome and I'm really trying to be a part of it as much as I can. And I really encourage everyone to be a part of it, or at least watch the show because it's really fun!
