Make Valentine’s Day Memorable

Sure you could get your sweetheart chocolate, flowers, a massage certificate or theater tickets for Valentine’s Day. Or you could do something more creative. Something from the heart that that would last far beyond February 14th, giving you both something to talk about for years. If a picture is worth 1,000 words, what would a slideshow of pictures be worth? How about a custom video? Here are three ways to show your love on video:

Propose on Video
If you’re planning to ask for your loved one’s hand in marriage this Valentine’s Day, make the proposal memorable. Incorporate video. Matt asked Ginny to marry him in a movie theater, after creating a custom trailer which she watched (along with the theater audience), not realizing what was to come. It’s a tear-jerker, with humor as well. Find it on YouTube:

DVD Slideshow
Scan old photos onto DVD and create a custom slideshow as a gift for your loved one, celebrating your years together. You can even transfer those photos to a digital picture frame, where hundreds of photos can cycle through, so you’ll never get bored. Give the slideshow or photo frame to your spouse, your parent or grandparent.

Home Movies
After a romantic dinner, bring out the home movies. No, not the 8 mm projector that breaks every time you set it up. Convert the movies to DVD. Within minutes, you can pop it into the DVD player, pour some wine, and sit back and enjoy home movies from all the years you’ve spent together.

Making Memories
If these ideas sound great, but you don’t have the knowledge, time or equipment to do it, no worries! Home Video Studio in Westfield can do it for you at a reasonable price. Studio owner Dan Weiniger will walk you through the process, giving you exactly what you want, when you want it. Contact Dan at (908) 301-9300 or email him at

February 14th is DVD day!

February 14th is DVD day! (That's Digital Valentine's Day) At Home Video Studio we are proud to announce that we have been designated Cupid's Little Helpers because we know there is no better way to say "I Love You" than with precious memories of you and your beloved. This is the perfect time to gather your old videos, Super8, 8mm and 16mm film and your photographs to have them digitally transferred to Platinum Archival DVDs.

Valentine's Day is a day set aside to show your love and appreciation to the most precious people in your life...and yet these feelings may be a challenge to portray. Does candy really say what's in your heart? Can flowers adequately express what your special someone means to you?

Romance begins with creativity and imagination - and that's the business we are in! Let us help you dream of ways to show how you really feel.

Do you have a copy of your wedding on tape or film? Let's put that video onto a DVD complete with chapters, a beautiful label and a case wrap! Do you and your loved one have a special song? Bring that song to life as it is played behind photos of you as a couple through the weeks, through the months or "Through the Years". Do you and your mate have a special place that's recorded on video? Maybe where you first met? How great would it be to revisit there on a DVD complete with music, titles and maybe some nice effects. Old love letters or a poem you wrote in your courting days? How about a narration behind pictures, video or film? Remember, if your romantic mind can conceive it we can most likely achieve it!

Our lives are measured by the special times we share with the ones we love. Call us today to begin planning the best Valentine's Day ever! Digital Valentine's Day! Only a Platinum Archival DVD will keep these memories alive forever. So plan to put your most precious memories on DVD today!
