hey animators check it out! I might do it if I find the time
so he wants animators to animate his stuff for free and submit it contest-style, no compensation other than uh “exposure”?
This^ yeah, so not ok.
That’s not how it works. How about you actually read up on the site before jumping in and accusing somebody of something THEY ARE NOT DOING. Joe is very clear on how important it is that artists get paid for their work, and as someone who has received payment for some of my work that has been used in productions, I know what I’m talking about.
Normally I’d chalk such rubbish up to ‘haters gonna hate,’ but as a long time user I am sick to the back teeth of these ridiculous accusations about hR, ranging from your crap, which you apparently pulled out of your arse because neither of you bothered to actually read the TOS or even Google hR, or do anything really other than spout some glorious Tumblr performance rage because that’s better than thinking these days, to this ridiculous vanity project shit (by that logic everything an artist makes is a vanity project). I mean, fair enough if you don’t like Joe or just don’t like the sound of it, but please don’t make up things that are not true. ffs
(I apologise for this being on my photography blog and not the other one, but this one has more followers and I wanted to get this information out there)
I’m super-stoked to announce that the ad campaign we collaborated on with SONY for their RX100 II camera has officially launched!
Throughout the fall and early winter you will see a number of different variations of this ad online, in magazines, within SONY retail stores, and on outdoor signage like billboards and bus wraps all over the U.S. - so keep an eye out for them.
Earlier this year, Sony sent RX100 II cameras to fifty of some of the more prominent and established photographers on hitRECord for the purpose of shooting images for this ad campaign. And we’re proud that these photographers were chosen by members of our community.
I would like to say thank you to SONY for coming on board to support us again in 2013. And, as a result of this partnership, all of 2013’s money-making productions - including the photographs featured in this ad campaign - will receive a portion of this sponsorship money.
Hope you all enjoy the campaign!
Thanks again <3
Thank you for featuring my photo, and congrats to the other amazing photographers. <3
I received my hitRECord check today. Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such a great community of artists. I took up photography after joining and being inspired by the other photographers on the site, and since then I have learned so much about a craft I had never given much thought to before. I cannot stress my gratitude enough.
I’m really happy to sign 637 checks totaling $306,600 to the Contributing Artists of 2012’s productions.
Now I know I say this every time we send out checks, but hitRECord is not about making money. It’s about the records we all get to make together. Still, I’m super thrilled to sign all of these checks and continue to pay our artists for their hard work.
Thanks again <3
Great video, and as one of the 637 artists due to receive a check I’m also very grateful for the opportunity to work with such a great community of artists.
