Update on "SITC!" Teaser Collab

By MattConley

Hey everyone -

I wanted to get this update out as soon as possible, so instead of doing a video I just wanted to write down a few thoughts on the "Summer In the City!" collab.


1. BASE LAYERS

The collab is picking up steam and getting some really outstanding contributions, so thanks to all of you! One thing to keep in mind is that, for videos especially, creating a base layer of organized footage is just as helpful as something closer to a "finished" project. So if you have some footage put together without text or music, feel free to upload it anyway to the collab right here so it can be REmixed: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/107543


2. NYC EVERYTHING

The title of 2. is more than just a reference to Bobby Digital... It would be really great for anyone in the New York City vicinity to shoot some video (or take some photos) of the city (the nightlife, the landmarks, anything!) Upload the footage and then contribute the RECord to the collab.


3. ANIMAAAAAAATION

I think animation could be a really great element to the teasers. wirrow got it going with this bumper: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/109641. Bright colors are a plus I think. The palette wirrow used on the bumper is a good point of reference.


4. ALBUM COMPILATIONS

Albums of REsources is super helpful to video editors. azarkowski has an ongoing album full of New York RECords here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/111506. But we could definitely use albums full of particular RECords people think would go well with this collab.


5. THE ALL IMPORTANT CAPTIONS

Captions are very helpful if you're uploading albums to a collab, or work-in-progress videos. Bullet points with thoughts, ideas, or specifics will help point editors in the right direction - especially with albums.


6. THANK YOU!!!!

Keep up the great work! Everything's coming along exceptionally! THANK YOU! <3
