Joseph Gordon-Levitt talks ‘Sin City’ green screen and ‘Hitrecord’

While promoting his new series, HITRECORD ON TV, Dark Knight Rises star Joseph Gordon-Levitt discussed his work on the Sin City sequel.

Talking with IGN, he praised director Robert Rodriguez and how it helped with the new project.

“[I] loved working with Rodriguez, and actually doing that week on Sin City was really influential because a lot of the short films that we made with HITRECORD were made in a somewhat similar way to the way that Sin City is shot, completely on green screen.”

The comparison only goes so far.

“(They) don’t have a huge airplane hanger like he has. We have a corner of our office. [Laughs] We converted that into a green screen site. But you know, just having the actors performing entirely on green screen and then creating the world around them — the difference being of course that Rodriguez has his team of Troublemakers, whereas we put the green screen footage up on our site and anyone is open to contribute their illustrations and animations to get behind it”

“HitRecord on TV,” which premiered over the weekend, aspires to be an agent of change in the digital world. The half-hour show for Pivot, the recently launched cable network from Participant Media targeting millennials, is a medley of videos, shorts, songs and other creative vignettes harvested from Gordon-Levitt’s open-collaborative production community, HitRecord.
