Crowd Sourcing: HitRecord

As regular readers of this site already know, I am convinced that a fundamental shift in how motion picture content is created and spread is underway.

If you're looking for signs of how the new tools might change production, there's a new example of what many are calling crowd sourcing: HitRecord is an open collaboration platform where filmmakers and other artists can come together to work on projects.

The HitRecord platform and other promising experiments in crowd sourcing - like Dave Nicholas' FilmTogether - suggest that collaboration and community building online hold the potential for re-shaping how storytellers work on projects that require a team.

In the New World of filmmaking, physical isolation will not be as significant an impediment as it might have been before the internet.

Thanks to UCF Film Business student Matthew Carroll for the link to HitRecord.
