With Flip a Hit’s affordable alternatives to expensive event-videography packages, friends and family members become the creative directors behind big events such as weddings, bar mitzvahs, and birthday parties. Days before the event, the company ships out five pocket-sized HD video cameras so the motley film crew can capture behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the bride’s stunt double. Multiple roving cameras catch views that a professional videographer might not, and unique angles that produce a wide range of classic and candid footage. After sending the recordings and equipment back to Flip a Hit, the business’s professional editors refine the raw footage and mail back a highlight reel in addition to the raw footage, all of which can also be hosted online.

What began as a tailor shop more than a century ago evolved into Cleaning by Frederick’s, a chain of dry-cleaning outposts certified by the Department of Environmental Conservation for their environmentally conscious techniques.

Most locations have a full-time tailor who can do alternations, and patrons can drop off their garments or arrange pickup and delivery service.
