Joseph Gordon-Levitt is now looking for musicians, audio remixers and curators for “hitRECord on TV,” the new variety show he is hosting for Pivot, Participant Media’s new cable network. The actor recently put a call out for writers and visual artists, and in a video message posted earlier today on YouTube, asked for musicians to create the opening music for the new show. “There is so much good instrumental music on the site already,” he said in the message. “Couldn’t we remix some of those instrumental pieces into opening music?”
He is asking musicians and audio remixers to “find a piece of instrumental music that reminds you of one of our eight themes” and remix into 20-second pieces of music that ends with “it’s time to hit RECord.” You can contribute here. But don’t worry if you’re not a musician or audio remixer. Gordon-Levitt said, “If you don’t fancy yourself an artist…but you still have good taste, I would call you a curator.” And he’s looking for curators to “make theme-specific albums of funny, weird, or beautiful interstitial video moments from the site that you think should be developed into our 8 TV episodes,” according to the YouTube page.
Contributors whose work is used will receive compensation, as Gordon-Levitt explains here. And it’s not the first time (or the
last) that Gordon-Levitt will appeal to creatives to contribute to
HitRECord. “I implore you. Come work on our show! We’re making TV, but it’s going to be good TV,” Gordon-Levitt says in the video. Check out the video below. Do you plan to contribute?
