Hands down the best and most honest editing facility...

Video Editing - August 1, 2011
Sara Intesar from Green Brooke

In an emergency I needed to get a reel together for a particular audition.
I found Dan's website randomly through google...and God am I grateful!
Not only did he extend his studio time for me, but did such a thorough
and meticulous job, up to every second of footage - just the way I
had it in my mind. He edited my work better than I had expected
everything to go, and added his own artistic opinion and detail to it.
Hands down the best and most honest editing facility on this side of
New Jersey...I am so grateful to Home Video Studio's services of
being there in my hour of need. You really saved the day.
Thank you Dan! You are awesome :).

Does your organization's video captivate, stimulate, and communicate?

Does your organization's video captivate, stimulate, and communicate?
Lloyd Brown built his business on quality and customer service. When he wanted to tell his story he found a video company that spoke his language."I want to make a video about our business that communicates the quality of our work, and then post it on our website." said Brown, Owner of Brown Restoration in Belton Missouri when he called Home Video Studio (HVS). As Lloyd explained the project, it became obvious this was to be a cut above the ordinary video of people working, buildings, and products. This had to be done in a private home with limited time, and fast turnaround. The project was shot in less than 2 days including the interviews with the home owner and Lloyd Brown, then edited and uploaded to his site (
The outcome was just what Lloyd was looking for. A personable and yet powerful message about the company, the project, and the quality of the work Brown Restoration delivers on every job. As Lloyd said: "I was reasonably certain Home Video Studio would do a good job, but we (including the home owner), were simply amazed at the care used in capturing the initial footage and the final quality of this video within the fast turn around time frame. I'd recommend Home Video Studio to anyone needing professional level videography and excellent results."

What's the HVS formula for business/organizational videos?
When asked about the video projects most HVS locations are involved with, HVS Founder Robert Hanley had this to say: "A lot of the videos we shoot are done in what we call documentary style. -- We shoot some video of the company, their building, people, machines, methods, interviews, etc and then edit it together with some motion graphics, titles, special effects, etc., letting the images we shoot influence the context of the video. This makes for a great end result.
When we start a project, we first ask our client one question: 'Who is the intended viewer of this video and what action do they want the viewer to take after they have watched the video.' For example if it is a Church fund raiser, the action might be for the viewer to have a good feeling about the church and then donate to the church. Or it could be for the viewer to have a better understanding of how the church has been operating and what results they are bringing into the community.
For more of a corporate video, the action asked of a viewer might be to buy the widget that the company makes -- or want to buy it, or be primed for a sales pitch from the company, or have a nice feeling about the company, or all of those things.
The typical video of this nature is 3 to 5 minutes, but some times more. In general these videos should be as short as possible in order to accomplish their mission . . . to get the viewer to take action.
We can produce a new video from most existing video our clients have shot in their showroom or factory with their own camera or we can shoot the whole thing. We also use their existing still images, logos, and archived media.
The final product can deliver on DVD and/or to their website."
Every organization today wants to communicate an effective message to their intended audience. All Home Video Studios have extensive experience working with business, corporate, government, and non-profit organizations. If your company or organization needs to update an older video or create a new web video, showcasing your latest project or service, then please call Home Video Studio and arrange a meeting to discuss your needs and just what it takes to deliver your message to inspire, captivate, stimulate, and communicate with your intended audience.

AWESOME! - Thanks Joe - Enjoy Your Family's Memories on Archival DVD's.

Joe R. from Ringoes


I had given up on trying to transfer my own VHS tapes to DVDs using store bought VHS/DVD recorder combos, so I figured I would give a professional a try to see if the results were any better. If found Dan on the internet and gave him several 25+ year old VHS tapes to transfer for me. Not only were his prices reasonable, and saved me hours of time trying to do the duplications myself, but he exceeded expectations by turning around the entire job in less than a week. My wife and I put one on the DVDs on for our kids I to watch tonight. OMG -- we were howling for hours. Not only were we both skinny with dark hair back then, but everything seemed so, so hokey. The fashions, the cars, the hair styles.... our kids were screaming with laughter seeing these priceless images. I will be bringing Dan the rest of our old home video library to preserve for us on DVD. These will make a wonder Christmas surprise for the entire family. Dan's the man!! Thanks for a wonderful product.
