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.
