Joseph was present for the premiere screening at Austin’s Paramount Theatre of the YouTube Originals special, though Logic was absent.

The film, currently available online, is built off of his HitRecord site and subsequent HitRecord On TV series.

The original website allows participants to meet and work collaboratively on digital works of art. 

The variety show, originally aired on the Pivot network, was a forum to broadcast these new creations, hosted by the Inception star.

The Don Jon star took to Twitter on Friday to highlight the new short film. 

‘People ask me what it is we do on @HITRECORD, and how different contributions from all different people come together, through the internet, to make a collaborative piece of art. This show we did w/ @Logic301 explains it all,’ he wrote, followed by the hashtags #BandTogether and #DoWhatYouLove.

One story focused on Marybeth Kern, a multi-instrumentalist who recorded a saxophone choir’s worth of parts for the track, all through the magic of overdubbing.

Another segment of the film follows University of Texas at Austin student and rapper Ariea Bastami, who contributed some bars to the collaborative track.

When he’s not fostering collaborative content, Joseph is filming the science fiction thriller Power for Netflix, co-starring Jamie Foxx. A release date has yet to be announced.
