Institute History

  • 2010 Sundance Film Festival


Part media workshop, part social network, and part art exhibition, hitRECord.org is a hybrid production enterprise that taps crowd-sourced creativity and topples traditional ideas of artistic ownership, online communication, and film production. Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Hesher, 500 Days of Summer, Mysterious Skin, Brick) invites audiences to collaborate collectively with him in the filmmaking process and create, record, and remix each other’s art (video, music, photos, writing, etc.). The goal is to fashion cohesive, short, multimedia work that will have a special screening at an event designed to bring the community of hitRECorders together at the end of the Festival.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s remarks : Sunday, January 24 at 8:30 p.m. and Wednesday, January 27 at 9:00 p.m.
hitRECorder screening: Friday, January 29 at 6:00 p.m.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
