The first episode features the work of 426 contributing artists and centers on the theme “The Number One.” Watch it below:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt needs an actor to star opposite Scarlett Johansson. Is it you?

Ladies, gents, sentient people of earth: do you want to be in a movie with Scarlett Johansson?

Sorry, silly question. Of course you do. The surprise is that Johansson’s Don Jon director and co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt wants to help make that happen through a hitRECord project.

Temper those hopes a little bit, though — this collaboration will be less Don Jon and more Her. In other words, Johansson has already recorded her voice part. It’s also animated. But the “cool little cartoon for grownups” looks pretty fun. Titled “Two Player Game,” it  was co-written by Gordon-Levitt and his 50/50 screenwriter Will Reiser and director Jonathan Levine and will appear in an upcoming episode of “HitRECord On TV!”

Gordon-Levitt explains how to audition below.

For Joseph Gordon-Levitt, pushing buttons is the ultimate turn-on.

And we’re not just talking about the little red one you find on a recording device.

The former kid actor turned leading man is obsessed with cameras, and after growing up in front of them, he’s now getting behind them in a big way. With his sexy writing and directing debut, Don Jon, hitting theaters this Friday, and his do-it-yourself online storytelling operation hitRECord.org currently building a new TV show, he has become one of the most innovative creative forces working in Hollywood.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt set to take hitRECord to school

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has already had an amazing 2012. Not only was he one of the best things in The Dark Knight Rises, but he killed it in Looper, and he’s set to bask in greatness in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, playing the son of Daniel Day-Lewis’ president. As anyone who saw his recent hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, though, the 31-year-old is not one to rest on his laurels and stop taking chances. Beginning Nov. 13, Gordon-Levitt will embark on a six-city college tour with his collaborative art project, hitRECord. Tickets go on sale today.

Gordon-Levitt launched his unique artistic experiment as a website back in 2005, inviting artists of all types and talents to contribute to creative projects. Soon, the site grew into a real production company that yielded short films, music videos, and books that have since become elements of the hitRECord live shows, which Gordon-Levitt has brought to such high-profile venues as the Sundance Film Festival.

The hitRECord show that comes to campuses next month (schedule below) will be the most polished and hi-tech that Gordon-Levitt has ever presented. He recently announced partnerships with Levi’s and Sony Electronics that will make his live show even more dynamic: in addition to financial support, Sony Electronics are donating their cameras so that members of the audience can shoot professional-grade footage of the show.
