Birth Name: Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Birth Place: Los Angeles, California, USA
Born Feb. 17, 1981, Gordon-Levitt was raised in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley by liberal parents who had met while working at a local progressive radio station. His maternal grandfather, Michael Gordon, had studied acting in New York with Elia Kazan, and was a rising filmmaker whose career was cut short when he was blacklisted for being deemed a Communist by the House Un-American Activities Committee during the Red Scare of the 1950s.

I want us all to make a short film all about “The In-Between Moments" - you know, those beautiful little moments in our day that happen in-between all the important stuff. This is gonna be the first short film to come out of hitRECord's new partnership with LG USA Mobile. Anybody can participate in this short film and everything you’ll need to contribute is here: <a href="http://www.hitrecord.org/collaborations/10590" target="_blank">http://www.hitrecord.org/collaborations/10590</a>
For this short film, there will be three elements — music, cinematography and writing — and I’m really excited to announce that LG is going to support this short film by sending out 50 smartphones to help us capture these in-between moments. These LG smartphones will be sent out to contributors of this project whose audio and video is most resonating with our Resident Curators on hitRECord.
However, everyone can work on this project since we’ll be making two version of this short film - one where the audio and video is captured exclusively on LG smartphones, and the other where everybody can participate. And anyone whose work is used in either version will get paid.
The deadline for all of these contributions is Sunday, September 6th.
I think this is gonna come out really differently than anything we’ve ever made before, and I’m excited to see what we make together.
I wanna thank LG, and I wanna thank you too, of course.
Thanks again <3
