    With Love from Harvard Square: A Video Valentine From the People of Harvard Square In 28 Dates, Times and Places

    With Love from Harvard Square from February 1st through February 28, 2007
    It is no secret the people of Harvard Square express opinions on every subject and on every street corner. During the month of February their off-the-cuff, lecturing, singing, ranting,
    raving, “love means never having to say you’re sorry” license to wax poetic is presented in the form of “Video Valentine Verities.”

    Show Me the Love
    The Harvard Square Business Association (HSBA) is creating a series of 1-3 minute Video Valentine Verities from the street and airing them on and “You Tube.” Quirky, colorful, unique and random, each video valentine features Harvard Square residents, workers, visitors and/or celebrities. Please join us each day in February as we present a previously unseen Video Valentine “Veritas.”

    Inspiring the Love
    As you know, February is a busy month in Harvard Square for our 93 restaurants, over 40 cultural organizations and hundreds of retail shops. There are menus, events, films, desserts, concerts, and shopping deals to celebrate matters of the heart. But the truth about Love in Harvard Square is a much bigger story…so widespread, embracing, and expressive that it will take us at least 28 days to deliver it to you.

    Directing the Love
    Videographer and co-producer for “With Love from Harvard Square,” is nationally renowned Still Photographer Mark Ostow, who lives and works within minutes of Harvard Square. Mark with his camera and our sound guy Eric Walendzinski with his boom mike have charmed their way into the hearts of our subjects. Co-Producer Robin Lapidus, Director of Marketing and Events for the HSBA, says the heart of Harvard Square has “its seasons, its evenings, and songs of its’ own.”
