Hit RECord at the Movies with Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Institute History

  • 2012 Sundance Film Festival


Joseph Gordon-Levitt has built a production company around a beautiful idea. Launched at the 2010 New Frontier at the Sundance Film Festival, hitRECord.org is an online community that brings artists from around the world together to work on each other’s projects. A writer can submit a story from Berlin, and someone in Cupertino can illustrate it, while musicians from Dublin, Istanbul, and Topeka contribute to the soundtrack. Since its launch, the hitRECord community has grown to include 70,000 artists with hundreds of projects being produced in collaboration with their artistic director, Regular JOE.

This special event is your invitation to collaborate with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and surprise guests to make something new. Bring your digital devices and get ready to participate in this part film screening/part filmmaking/part live performance extravaganza hosted by Regular JOE himself. Hit RECord invites you to join a new wave of filmmaking by creating art that will live and grow beyond this extraordinary evening at the Festival.

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.
