JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT in conversation with special guests from the hitRECord community, discussing and signing HitRECord on TV! Season One Box Set (Dey Street Books)
Featuring: Sara Daly (Metaphorest on hitRECord.org), Cameron Dean (WunderBoy on hitRECord.org), Kam Talbet (KamPAIGN on hitRECord.org)

Skylight Books welcomes Joseph Gordon-Levitt and hitRECord community members Sara Daly, Cameron Dean, and Kam Talbert for a very special event launching their new book, HitRECord on TV: Season One!

In January 2014, HITRECORD ON TV! premiered on Pivot TV to near-instant acclaim and would go on to win an Interactive Media Emmy® Award for Social TV Experience. Hailed as “a breath of fresh air” (USA Today) and “unlike anything else on TV” (Slate), the half-hour variety show was the logical next step for Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his 325,000 member-strong online creative-collective hitRECord.org. Created, hosted, and directed by Gordon-Levitt,  all eight episodes, each organized around a single theme ranging from “space” to “fantasy” to “money,” are now available for fans all in one place, for the first time—with bonus content not shown on TV—in this uniquely-packaged box set.

About this event:
The event is free and open to the public.  It will be held in our main store and simulcasted to our annex space, two doors down.  Seating and standing room in the main store and in the annex is first-come, first-served. Also, due to time constraints, we're limiting the number of people who may go through the signing line to 100.  (See below for more info.)

If you're unable to attend in person, please watch the live webcast, found here. You'll be able to watch the live feed and submit questions to the Q&A!

UPDATE as of 10 a.m. on 12/3: All 100 signing line tickets have been given out. We still have not reached the limit on pre-signed copies, though, so orders placed from now on will be filled with pre-signed copies of HitRECord on TV: Season One as long as supplies last (up to 100 pre-signed copies).

Please note!

  • The first 100 people who pre-order HitRECord on TV: Season One from Skylight Books will get a ticket to the signing line, where they can have their book signed and personalized. Only those 100 people will be able to get their books signed in person. To help us avoid issuing signing line tickets to people who will not be attending the event, please mention whether you'll be attending when placing your order. For online orders, this can be done in the Order Comments field.
  • The next 100 people who purchase the book (either pre-ordering, purchasing at the event, or ordering online during the live webstream) will get a pre-signed copy. We will not be able to fulfill requests for personalization on these copies.
  • Pre-orders can be placed in person at the store, over the phone during business hours (10 a.m. to 10 p.m., closed on Thanksgiving; 323-660-1175) or online (buy button below).
  • All pre-orders of signed copies will be fulfilled at the event (after the Q&A), or, in the case of orders to be shipped, they will be shipped out in the two days following the event. Because the books won't be pre-signed until the event itself, we cannot fulfill these orders before the event begins.

If you have a ticket to go through the signing line:

  • Signing line tickets do not guarantee entry to the talk and Q&A (which are first come, first-served) but they do guarantee entry to the signing line following the Q&A.
  • The panelists will sign up to two books per person in line; one of these must be HitRECord on TV: Season One. The second book may be any of the hitRECord books (list below, with buy buttons). The panelists will not sign any other items or memorabilia, so please leave these items at home.
  • All of the panelists will sign HitRECord on TV: Season One, but only Joseph Gordon-Levitt will sign the previous hitRECord books.
  • Only the ticket holders may go through line to get their books signed (other members of your group will not be able to go through the line with you).
  • Only one ticket per customer (one person may not buy multiple books for multiple tickets, though you can buy multiple books and get the one ticket, and then get two of the books signed).
  • No posed photos, though you may take photos during the event from your seat, or from the line. (Please turn off your flash.)

Thank you for your cooperation! It makes events like these possible, and is appreciated.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently wrapped production on the UNTITLED CHRISTMAS EVE PROJECT, with Seth Rogen and Anthony Mackie, as well as Robert Zemeckis’s, THE WALK, portraying Phillipe Pettit through his historic tightrope walk between the Twin Towers.  Last fall, Gordon-Levitt released his directorial debut, DON JON, which he also wrote and stars in with Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore, for which he was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay.
