What We Have
A very unique and compelling product in leveraging the HITRECORD community to collaborate and build content from the ground up on behalf of a brand partner. From movie studios to gaming studios to more traditional CPG and retail brands, we offer a unique and valuable form of content creation for any type of marketer. HITRECORD has successfully created brand assets and campaigns for partners including LG, Samsung, Warner Brothers, Facebook, National Parks Foundation, ACLU, Wag Labs and more.

What is HITRECORD?
Founded and led by actor and artist Joseph Gordon-Levitt, HITRECORD is an open online community for creative collaboration. Users don’t just post about themselves and vie for attention; they work together on a variety of art and media projects that they couldn’t have completed on their own.
So far, HITRECORD has operated as a successful production company, winning an Emmy for its television show, partnering with numerous brands from Samsung and LG to the ACLU, paying contributing community members a total of nearly three million dollars, and remaining cash-flow positive for several years running.
With over 700,000 registered users and having just raised a Series A round of financing from a syndicate of established tech VCs, our next step is to evolve from a PRODUCTION COMPANY into a PLATFORM.
We plan to take the collaborative methodology we’ve successfully developed, and productize it, empowering the community to self-organize, start their own projects, and see them through to completion with little to no involvement from our staff.
We envision a new kind of collaborative media ecosystem, where the consumer’s experience is less about sinking further and further into the couch, and more about getting inspired and getting involved; and where the creative process is less about “look at me!” and more about “what can we make together?”
Our mission is to bring as many people as possible the experience of creativity through collaboration.
