More about hitRECord
Now in our second year of operation, hitRECord productions have run the gamut:  In 2010 our work was featured at the Sundance Film Festival, SxSW as well as a handful of some of the top arts-oriented colleges in the US.  hitRECord published a book in 2010, and we’re in the middle of putting together a DVD of our work for national distribution.  We are often involved in high-profile collaborations while (hopefully) maintaining our artistic integrity… and, without taking ourselves too seriously. 😛
