HVS Top 5 Christmas Villains


HVS Top 5 Christmas Villains

Christmas is a time for peace and goodwill – except in the movies. Whether catching a Holiday movie in a theater or rewatching a classic on television we love our Holiday Hooligans and our Merry Misers. Imagine a Christmas movie where everyone just opened gifts and ate chocolate. We’d be asleep before the first Noel! That’s why Christmas villains are some of the best villains in the world. Here are a few of the most memorable.


The Grinch – (How the Grinch Stole Christmas”) He’s mean, he’s green, and so heartless he even took the last can of Who Hash. Now that’s a villain!



Ebenezer Scrooge - (“A Christmas Carol”) Scrooge’s villainy is the most famous. His last name still stands for miserliness and misanthropy. His oft spoken outburst “Bah, humbug!” is still found on the lips of shoppers stuck at the mall on Christmas Eve.



Mr. Potter - (“It’s a Wonderful Life”) Like Scrooge, Potter is dedicated to his bank account. But he is also civic minded – making sure not to provide assistance to middle class and poor – as it, in his words, produces a “discontented, lazy rabble instead of a thrifty working class.”



Scut Farkas - (“A Christmas Story”) Yellow eyes, evil laugh. But Ralphie gave him his just desserts. Let’s hope he got a lump of coal in his stocking.




Hans Gruber (“Die Hard”) Hans is an 80’s German terrorist who takes company Christmas partygoers hostage at a Los Angeles office tower in a plot to steal $640 million. $640 million? Isn’t that what an NFL quarterback makes a year these days?

Preserve Your Legacy at Home Video Studio

“The goal isn’t to live forever. The goal is to create something that will.” – Carlos A. Navarro

Some quote, huh? And one that makes us glad to be in the business of preserving memories and helping you create your legacy! Come in and celebrate your legacy with us by bringing in your 8mm, Super8, and/or 16mm film and having it transferred to Platinum Archival DVD!


Much of your family’s story was "written" through the camera lens of the parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, and children who took the time to document their life and times with a home movie camera during the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. Their hope was that these images would last for generations – and they can. Our mission is to preserve these memories – and we do it with the best technicians and the best equipment around!

The coming Holiday season is a great reason to take advantage of all the video services we have to offer - and it’s coming quickly. The Holiday season is our busiest time for Home Movie Transfer and it is high time to finally get that 8mm, Super8 or 16mm film onto a medium that's long lasting and convenient. Have you been putting this off? We want to hear from you soon. Imagine watching your precious memories together. Everyone from great grandparents to children will enjoy them!

As your Film Transfer experts we get a lot of questions. Here are a few you may have. If you have any more call or email us us:

My film is very old. Will it transfer?
We make every effort to transfer your film no matter what condition it’s in and we are rarely stumped. We have transferred movies dating as far back as 1916 and usually have no problem with old film.

Will my old 8mm, Super8 or 16mm film look good?
We love home movies and we are on a mission to make sure yours is the best it can be! That's why we've invested in the best film transfer equipment available. We use a completely digital process using the highest quality capture of your film. Another great feature of our system is its sprocketless transport and laser frame alignment. That means no jerky film movement because of damaged sprocket holes. It means you see 100% of the frame even if the film has shrunk.

I remember my parents recorded sound on some of these reels. Will that transfer too?
If there is sound on your reels it will be transferred. What a joy it is to not only see the past but to hear it as well.

What about music or sound on film?
If you like, and most customers do, we include (at no extra charge) background music. It is our own copyrighted score of music, specifically composed for home movie transfers. No music will be recorded in places where you already have sound on film.

Can you make computer files as well as DVDs?
Yes. We can make computer files for PC or Mac.

I want my children and grandchildren to know who some of the people are in my movies. How can I do that?
We can put titles anywhere on your captured film to help you identify where it was taken and who was in the scene.

Can you make copies?
Yes! In fact most our customers make copies to share with relatives and friends. That’s most the fun of get your movies transferred.

I have video tapes starting from the 80’s as well. Can you do those?
Yes, we are a full service video services business and provide the best in VHS, VHS-C, 8mm, and mini DV transfer. In fact we can most likely transfer any tape format you have!

Don't delay! The Holiday rush IS upon us. Call us today!

The Holiday Season is upon us! Thanksgiving and Christmas mean that once again hearts will turn toward home and families will gather to share their lives and bask in the warmth of this wonderful time. Did you know video was made for this season?
  • Do you have 8mm or 16mm home movies? They are priceless! Transfer them to a Platinum Archival 45 DVD. This scratch-proof DVD is exclusively ours, and is rated to last many, many years. You and your loved ones will enjoy them for the decades to come!
  • What about all the tapes you have of your kids’ first days, first steps, and first dates? There’s a lot of your life contained on those VHS, VHS-C, 8mm, and Mini DV’s. Make sure you keep those memories safe by transferring them to Platinum Archival DVD as well. We'll transfer them all onto a convenient and long-lasting Platinum Archival disc - complete with scene selection and menu.
  • Do something with those still photos and 35mm slides! Are they sitting around in boxes? A Photo Video Keepsake will take your favorite photos and slides and produce a one-of-a-kind work of art complete with titles, special effects and music. And think of the space you’ll save putting all your stills on a DVD or thumb drive! Plus you and your loved ones will enjoy these precious images even more when they are digitized and convenient.
  • What are you doing with your smartphone videos? Instead of sending traditional paper greeting cards, how about putting some of the year’s video clips on a DVD video Christmas card? What about the videos you shoot during your family get-togethers? We can edit your video clips from before, during, and after Christmas into a creative family video. Don’t leave your videos from this special time on your phone! Let’s get creative!
Here are three reasons why Home Video Studio should be your first call this Holiday Season. 


1. Your home movies, tapes, photos, slides, and recent videos all make great gifts.

  • Attractive packaging. Custom labeling and beautiful, artistic album cases available.
  • What if you (gasp) forget someone? Extra copies of anything are a quick phone call away!
  • We also have attractive gift certificates!
2. Your home movies, tapes, photos, slides, and recent videos all make great entertainment.
  • Once your video gifts are opened the whole family can enjoy them immediately.
  • Video is something young and old will enjoy together.
3. We can help you make new memories
  • With the family in one place it’s time to shoot more video and stills.
  • Let us help you get creative and plan for the upcoming year.
Call us! Thanksgiving is days away and Christmas is right on its heels. Let's put our heads together to make this the best Holiday season ever! If you start thinking now there's no telling what your creative mind will dream up to make a most memorable Holiday gift.

Don’t delay. Christmas is only weeks away!

Sports Scholarship Videos: 7 Points to Win the Game

Sports Scholarship Videos: 7 Points to Win the Game

As we enjoy the excitement and pageantry of a new college football season it doesn't take long to realize that college athletics are more popular than ever. What keeps the drama of athletic competition in demand? Talented athletes!


Many athletes, men and women, attend college on scholarship. Do you have or know a student athlete who is gifted in any sport? More and more coaches depend on video to begin the scholarship selection process! Sports Scholarship videos are a specialty at Home Video Studio. We have the experience, equipment and expertise to present your child's talent on a silver platter. Whether you provide video or we shoot it (or both) you’ll have a great looking video highlighting your athlete’s skills in:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Lacrosse
  • Hockey
  • Soccer
  • Field Hockey
  • Baseball
  • Volleyball
  • Tennis
  • Softball
  • Equestrian
  • Any other sport

Like any sport, the field of athletic scholarship competition involves some planning and a competitive edge. Here are six points (Touchdown!) we suggest for a top notch scholarship video:

  1. First things first. Do you have good video that shows your athlete in their best light? Make sure it’s clear and of good quality.
  2. Like a resume a sports scholarship video must be concise and to the point.
  3. A sports scholarship video must include your name, school, position, uniform colors, jersey number and current grade level. And don't forget your contact information!
  4. Don't forget awards, accomplishments, planned college major, SAT or ACT scores, etc.
  5. Use your best highlights first.
  6. Most coaches like to see, besides a highlight DVD, a whole game. Put one or two whole games, edited down to just sports action (eliminate time outs, cheerleader routines, etc.) after the highlight section, or better yet, consider a separate disc for the whole game(s).
  7. ...and the extra point is good....
  8. ... don't forget the packaging. The greatest Sports Scholarship video in the world might be passed over if the packaging isn't appealing.

No matter the sport one thing is sure: There may only get one chance in the Sports Scholarship arena.

Make sure you do it right! There’s a lot that goes into a Sports Scholarship video. Probably more than you feel comfortable doing yourself! That's why we're here. We are able to provide all the elements to present your student athlete in their most favorable light - from shooting your athlete in action to using your video to edit or any step along the way. 


Call us today to see how we can help you with back to school video savings!

Back to School means Video/DVD Memories

Back to School means Video/DVD Memories

This time of year is chock full of moments to remember. Summer is winding down. You probably took
lots of video and photographs over the summer - at the beach, family reunions, pool parties and camping. Back to school activities are heating up. Your probably going to take lots of back to school photos and videos - new clothes, new friends, football games and cheerleading. Here are a few ideas of things we can do at Home Video Studio to help you preserve those moments as well as present them on a silver platter.

Family Time Video: Why not spice up your videos with themes, titles and music? What if you took the best video from that family reunion and added titles showing who attended? How about editing that summer pool party with some fast cuts and great music? Your imagination is the limit to how you can creatively turn video into your own creation.

Photo Video Keepsake: This is still one our most popular services. Can you imagine the impact of a montage of photos and stirring music showing your daughter or grandson from birth to first day of school? How about a time capsule of school pictures?

Sports Highlight Video: Fast becoming a favorite! Back to school means lots of athletic competition. Now is the time to capture you son or daughter's games on video so that at the end of the year we can help you condense it into a fast paced video production. Music, slow motion, special effects....you're the producer!

Video to DVD Transfers: Bring us all videos you've shot over the summer - we'll transfer them to an Archival DVD for you. This will keep them safe and convenient. These DVDs are scratch resistant and will keep your memories for a lifetime. Every DVD has scene selection "smart chapter markers" so you can easily find your favorite spots.

Call us today to see how we can help you with back to school video savings!

HVS Top Five “Heat Wave” movies


HVS Top Five “Heat Wave” movies
It’s July and one fun thing to do is sit in an icy theater and watch a movie. Many great ones took place during a heat wave, so sit down, grab a cool beverage, and get ready to sweat.





Rear Window – Jimmy Stewart stars as a photographer confined to a wheelchair because of a work accident. During a summer heat wave, he passes the time by watching his neighbors, who keep their windows open to stay cool. Most of them are just interesting…one may be a murderer.




In the Heat of the Night – Sidney Poitier is a big city African American police detective who finds himself investigating a vicious crime in a racist small town in Mississippi.





The Long Hot Summer – Paul Newman is at his cool best as a drifter who cons his way into the good graces of a Southern aristocrat. As always he gets the girl.




Lawrence of Arabia – O.K. it’s not technically a heat wave because it’s always hot in Arabia! This film is widely considered one of the greatest films in the history of cinema. It depicts experiences in the Arabian Peninsula during World War I and struggles with war, identity, and divided allegiances between country and comrades.




The Seven Year Itch – Marylin Monroe shines in this movie about a guy whose family goes to Maine during a New York heat wave. He stays home, meets the femme fatale, enjoys her company, and in the end remains loyal realizing what he has.

Make video part of your summer plans

Make video part of your summer plans


 "Summertime is always the best of what might be." - Charles Bowden

Ahhh! Summer is here! And summer makes for great video. Bright outdoor shots. Lots of action and energy. Exotic locations. Yes, summer is the time for "doing stuff"! So make sure you're capturing all your "doings" on video and photos so you and your family can enjoy them for years to come.

Recently we asked some customers, representing all ages and from all parts of the country, "What stuff did you do in your ‘best summer ever'?" Here are some highlights:

  • Randi, 52, from Indiana: "That's easy. I backpacked through Europe, stayed in hostels and worked if I ran out of money. I was crazy."
  • Tim, 24, from Texas: "I was a camp counselor. We had no cellular service. We hiked and canoed every day and had campfires every night. I made incredible friendships."
  • Jenn, 32, from New York: "My best summer was right at home before I left for college. I cherished every day with my friends and family. It was more attitude than adventure."
  • Jim, 62, from Minnesota: "A few years ago I went to a baseball fantasy camp. I met the stars of my youth and got to hang out and even play a little ball with them."

 Now, what do you think all these people had in common? That's right! Oodles of photos and videos. And what did they do with them? The same thing you need to do as you plan your best summer ever. They called us to keep their memories safe and at hand for a lifetime of enjoyment.
What are you doing this summer?

Are you going on a dream vacation? Here's how we can help. Don't leave your adventures lying about on your cameras and devices. Bring them to life by telling a story with a PhotoVideo Keepsake. Where did you go? What did you eat? How big was that fish? Document it with titles. What were the top music hits? Nothing re-creates the time and place like your favorite music in the background.

Are you staying close to home with your family? Festivals, fireworks, beaches, bbq and picnics. Your best memories are the simple ones surrounded by those you love. Why not add some flair with a short, edited FamilyTIME video of your summer highlights? You know all the jokes about home movies! It doesn't have to be that way. Let us help you make a snappy and interesting program that people will love!

Is your summer full of sports activities like baseball, tennis, or golf? We specialize in Sports Highlights videos. Let us take your videos and add some pizzazz with special effects, music, titles, narration…whatever you can imagine. Turn your kids' summer of Little League into Field of Dreams. Turn your Annual Charity Golf Tournament into The Masters.

Are your kids going to camp? Sports camp, music camps, church camp, cheer camp, dance camp…and they all have final performances and parent's day. Make sure it's all documented to enjoy for years to come with an Arts and Entertainment video.

Make sure you have precious family memories by preparing now to document the great summer that lies before you. Then call us to help you turn your creative ideas into reality.

HVS Top 5 Vacation Video Tips


HVS Top 5 Vacation Video Tips

It’s the trip of a lifetime! You want to document everything! Make sure you’re prepared. Here are a few tips we’ve learned along the way. Bon voyage!


Take the time to back up your computer. 
If you’re taking your computer on vacation for editing and/or storage of your video clips and photos be sure to back it up before you go. Plan this well in advance of your departure day. Don’t try it the night before or you’ll be tempted to say, “This is taking too long. I think it’ll be OK.”


Pack plenty of media. 
Media, such as video cards, may not be available where you are going. Or they may be very expensive.


Look for stories. 
Is this your family’s first trip to California? Have you saved for years for this vacation? We all love stories so use video to tell it.


Your video is about people. 
The landscape will most likely stay the same. Spend most of your time highlighting people. Your family. The natives. New friends. Get close-ups. Do interviews. These people will be here at this age only this time, so capture it well.


Have fun! 
If you are having fun while shooting your video it will most likely be fun to watch.
