Joseph Gordon-Levitt founded HitRecord with his late brother, Dan
Movie Buffs recognize Joseph Gordon-Levitt for his impressive big-screen performances in movies, including Inception and 7500. But aside from his acting duties, the star founded a collaborative platform where creative minds build content together. And it’s just the kind of initiative that has been helping folks get through the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s what we know about Gordon-Levitt’s innovative program, dubbed HitRecord.

“Today’s my brother Dan’s birthday,” Gordon-Levitt tweeted in July. “He and I started HitRecord together a long time ago. We all miss him, been 10 years now since he died. I love seeing art inspired by him. Draw him, write about him, talk about him, whatever. Post here.”
Gordon-Levitt’s invitation for artists to contribute creative works in memory of his brother, Dan, celebrates the spirit of HitRecord’s mission. The entertainer explained in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter that HitRecord “has always been about people being creative together even though they’re not in the same physical place. It’s an online community of people collaborating on all kinds of projects.”
HitRecord boasts a wide range of creative opportunities that individuals can add to, including illustrated stories, songs, short films, animated shorts, and more. Writers, photographers, on-air talent, voice actors, editors, and other artists flock to the online destination to find like-minded creatives with whom to partner on original projects.
