Way back in January TrekMovie reported that William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk, had hooked up with LiveAutographs.com, who offer personalized videotaped memorabilia signings. The event had sold out (twice) and they have now expanded it to allow for more signings, but the deadline to sign up for your autographed item and personalized taped message from Shatner is midnight Tuesday (Pacific).
What do you want The Shat to say?
Want William Shatner to wish you or a friend happy birthday, anniversary, etc…and do it on tape? Well now is your chance. Visit the Shatner page at LiveAugotraphs.com and choose one of three items for Shatner to sign (a lithograph, his new autobiography, or a publicity photo from Star Trek TMP) and type any message you want (up to 300 characters). You will then get the item and a video of Shatner signing your item and reading your customized message. The item will then be mailed to you and the video will be available as a download and also on DVD.
The site has this message from Bill Shatner:
Who do you want me to talk to and what do you want me to say? I can send a message to you or someone you know — a birthday greeting, a good luck wish, even a super shout-out! Or I can answer a question. Type your request here and I’ll respond in your personalized video!
Just imagine the possibilities. Get him to personalize the "Risk is our business" speech, or get him to just say "Denny Crane" 150 times, or maybe he will tell just you why he isn’t in the new Star Trek movie.
The pricing is $149.00 for the signed TMP photo, $179 for the signed autobiography, and $425 for the lithograph. This is a pretty good deal as Shatner has not been appearing at any conventions lately and even though you get to meet him in person, you don’t get much of a ‘personalized’ experience at a big con with hundreds of other autograph seekers in line.
Last chance is tomorrow
LiveAutographs will be taping the autographing on Wednesday, so you have to get your customized order in by tomorrow night. More info available at LiveAutographs.com.
If you did miss out, TrekMovie is told that LiveAutographs does expect to do this kind of event again in the future, but no timing was provided.
More celebs at LiveAutographs including LOST stars and producer of Abrams Trek
Shatner, as it should be, is the first, but LiveAutographs is also providing personalized (and videotaped) signings for a number of other celebrities including Tricia Helfer, Carmen Electra and Hulk Hogan and most of the cast of Lost. Fans can also get autographs from Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof (who is also a producer on JJ Abrams Star Trek), and there can be no end to questions you can ask them to answer on tape.
