The Ultimate Tribute Video
by Harry Freedman
You’re having a big event. You’ve sent out invitations, ordered flowers and hired the band. Good. Your event will now be like everyone else’s. But wouldn’t you like your affair to be a lot more special? Or, how about transcendent?
I’m Harry Freedman. For the past 31 years I’ve worked at some of the highest levels of show business as an actor, comedian and filmmaker.
I am very proud to introduce: The Ultimate Tribute Video.
What is The Ultimate Tribute Video?
It’s a movie. About you. About your life. And it’s got all the details right, but it’s funny. Gut-level funny. So one moment, your friends and family are paying homage to you, and everyone is touched by emotion, and the next, they’re all laughing. There’s a warm glow in the room.
This is no ordinary generic video collage. This is like a beautifully hand crafted piece of art.
And while it’s one thing to watch a movie with actors in a theater, it’s another to experience one where your friends and family are actually in the movie, watching themselves on the screen, wondering what comes next.
What is it for?
There are some milestones in life that call for something special. So whether it’s for a couple getting married, or having an important anniversary; a son or daughter having a bar or bat mitzvah; an honorarium for a friend; a relative’s landmark birthday; or a company celebrating their achievements, the Ultimate Tribute Video is about whatever or whomever you want it to be.
- Birthdays- Can you imagine a better gift?
- Weddings- The story of how two have become one.
- Anniversaries- There is no better way to commemorate your marriage.
- Bar/Bat Mitvahs- Your child will watch your tribute to them for the rest of their lives.
- Reunions- An amazing way to break the ice!
- Honorariums- The Ultimate Tribute Video is in fact, the Ultimate Tribute.
- Corporate- The history of your company - like you’ve never seen before.
What's so special about The Ultimate Tribute Video?
1 It’s truthful. It’s your life, but I’ll take good care of it.
2 It’s goodhearted and has the ability to cross over generational divides. But mostly, it’s just plain fun. There’s a blend of warmth and humor that let’s you sit back and relax, and watch everyone react, knowing that you’re in good hands. Priceless.
3 It’s lasting. You will want to watch this video over and over again.
What's involved in making The Ultimate Tribute Video?
I interview friends and family, gather photos, and learn the subject’s history. Prior to the event, I review the video with the client to ensure I’m accurate on my facts and that everything is in good taste. That’s all there is to it.
