Rob Freeman OwnerTitlewave Productions, Inc.
I'm based in South Florida and New York City. My work has taken me from Hawaii to Hong Kong, producing award-winning television commercials, and videos, for major brands like Hilton, Radisson, United Airlines, Carnival Cruise Lines, Harvard/Mass General Hospital and many more.
As the Supervising Producer of World Business Review, which appeared on CNBC for nearly a decade, I worked closely with marketing execs of Fortune 500 companies to translate their corporate profiles into entertaining, visually engaging segments of the show. At 3MD Design Studios, I headed sales and production, developing relationships with numerous clients including MTV, Discovery Channel and Cisneros Group.
I studied film production at the University of Southern California and Northwestern University, and enjoy keeping abreast of the latest advances in the ever-changing media landscape. I've worn many hats as I worked my way up through the business. Over the years I've acquired a valuable collection of resources, a strong support network, and a hands-on production style, which I can bring to bear on your next production to form the type of “completion bond” that can only be offered by a seasoned Pro. I'm always interested in expanding my network so please feel free to contact me anytime.
