IMDb, the world’s largest online movie database, recently celebrated it’s 25th anniversary at the historic Sunset Towers Hotel in West Hollywood, CA. Not only did IMDb pioneer movie and actor database file sharing, it was an early pioneer of internet based databases accessible to the general public. Freestyle Event Services provided the star studded event with custom carpet and step & repeat services, lighting, & audio. The event was a tremendous success and marked the first of many future Hollywood events for IMDb. Special thank you to Simply Troy Lifestyle & Events for the event design and coordination. Here’s to the next 25 years!
Freestyle Event Services, Inc. was recently honored to be a part of Kern County’s own premiere of Disney’s “McFarland USA”, featuring local heroes portrayed in the movie. The event was held in Bakersfield’s iconic Maya Cinemas and received a surprise visit from Kevin Costner whom also starred in the film. Freestyle provided red carpet services, searchlight, custom lighting and a custom backdrop. The event drew hundreds from the community and led the way for a film that has received rave reviews.

The 48th annual World Ag Expo recently took place in Tulare, CA. With over 100,000 visitors from 72 countries, the World Ag Expo is THE largest agriculture show in the world and takes place in the heart of California’s Central Valley. As the International Agri-Center’s contracted audio-visual provider, Freestyle Event Services has numerous responsibilities onsite for the show. Some of those responsibilities include providing rental support for the hundreds of exhibitors in attendance, audio-visual solutions and technicians inside of various seminar rooms and pavilions, a large-scale outdoor grounds PA system, and more. In addition, the use of LED Wall is becoming an integral part of the show, being used in two different locations on the grounds in 2015. The World Ag Expo is a week-long adventure for the Freestyle team that involves extensive logistical planning, but is also extremely fun and unique amongst the various events that we are privileged to be a part of. We will be looking forward to next year’s show!
No matter what holiday is being celebrated or special event is taking place, the historic Padre Hotel in Downtown Bakersfield is guaranteed to offer a unique, theme-oriented experience for all who attend. We were thrilled to be a part of their New Year’s Eve festivities once again this year. By combining decorative uplighting as a foundation and robotic intelligent lighting as accents in the lobby, we were able to bring their “Fall Down the Rabbit Hole” Alice In Wonderland theme to life. The lobby was only the beginning. Once guests found their way onto the Prairie Fire patio they were treated to a complete UV color wash and high-performance video projection with images from the movie to set the stage for Absolem’s Hookah Lounge. Not to mention, our DJ on Prairie Fire kept guests dancing until 2015 arrived!

The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, Kevin Harvick, made a surprise visit to his Alma Mater yesterday as the first stop on his media tour. For his second visit in less than two years, Freestyle Event Services was, once again, asked to provide staging and sound reinforcement for the occasion. With crystal clear audibility, Kevin urged North High School students to follow their dreams and to believe that they are achievable.
