HVSN Top 5 "It could only happen in Summer" Movies


HVSN Top 5 "It could only happen in Summer" Movies


Jaws - It’s cruel when a summer blockbuster warns us “Don’t go in the water.” Fear plays well in July.

Dirty Dancing - A girl of privilege falls for a lowly dance instructor during a summer in the Catskills. July is a time for your “First dance. First love. The time of your life.”

Sandlot - July is the time to make lifelong friends at the baseball field - a “piece of paradise a half block wide and a whole summer long.”

Vacation - A summer Griswold trip across the country to a theme park. “What could go wrong?”


Stand by Me - A long journey, a mortal enemy, a body to discover. Summer makes the best coming of age movies. “For some, it's the last real taste of innocence, and the first real taste of life. But for everyone, it's the time that memories are made of.”

You WIN as HVSN Studios Vie for Video Awards

The Oscar. The Emmy. The Tony. The Grammy. All bring to mind a highly coveted award given to acknowledge excellence and craftsmanship. Did you know there is an award for the best video creations within our international network? It's called The Hanley and is affectionately named after Home Video Studio's Founder and President, Robert Hanley.
At the end of July Studio Owners in the HVS Network will assemble for their annual convention in Tucson, Arizona. This marks the 17th consecutive year of “The Getaway” – a time of fellowship, comparing notes, and classes to learn the latest in video technology. The five-day event will be capped off with the annual Hanley Awards ceremony to recognize our members' video excellence in several different categories.
Although it's great to win awards and gain recognition much of the impetus behind these awards is to sharpen skills to better serve YOU, our customer. Video technology is always changing, and we are dedicated to staying on the cutting edge – and vying for a coveted “Hanley” is a great way to exercise our video muscles. Here are a few of the several awards that will be claimed and what they mean to our existing and future customers.
Best PhotoVideo Keepsake –Do you have a special event coming up? Birthday? Anniversary? Retirement? There is still nothing as powerful as your own photos combined with music to make a masterpiece to honor a loved one! That's why we recognize the best among our peers in this category.
Best Documentary – Is there a person you know whose life story would enrich all who knew it? Telling the story of a real event or person is an art. Combining still photos, video, old film, narration and/or help tell this story. We recognize the best in artfully managing all this media.
Cut and Paste Award for Editing – Do you have video that needs to be boiled down to present a message? Maybe it's simple, like the best scenes from your summer vacation. Maybe it's more complex, like Great Grandpa's 110 Year Life. But how you choose to present images, sound, and effects to serve your story are important. That's why we recognize the best in editing with a “Hanley”.
Best Event Video – There are many events in one's life worthy of documenting, whether a professional business meeting or convention, or your child's dance recital. These events require planning and being on the ball to get the best video possible. And you get you get one chance. The Home Video Studio Network recognizes excellence in this type of video.
Best Sports Scholarship Video – More and more coaches rely on video to begin the scholarship process. Do you have a child who is athletically gifted? We know what coaches are looking for in these Scholarship videos. We present this award to the studio who best presents a student-athlete's talent on a silver platter.
President's Award: Best in Show – This is the big one all of our studios want! It transcends category and is picked among all the winners.
The competition is tough. The requirements are stringent. The trophy is impressive. But the real value of the Hanley is summed up by its namesake, Robert Hanley: "The value to our studios and ultimately their customers lies in the process of entering and competing. In our industry one thing is certain - video technology is always evolving. With video on computers, cell phones, digital screens and the Internet, it is essential to keep up with it all! And the best way to keep sharp and up-to-date is with a little friendly competition among our colleagues."
Whether you have video tape that needs to be transferred to DVD, 8mm and 16mm film that needs transferring to DVD, Photokeepsakes, Sports Scholarship Videos or the many other services we provide rest assured your project is in the hands of the industry's best - perhaps even a Hanley winner.

Spring: When Your Heart's Fancy Turns to Video


Graduation Day, Father's Day, and Memorial Day are just around the corner. Call us today and let's

get started with a creative and unique video project, whether it's for a gift, for a celebration centerpiece, or both!

Graduation is a time to say "We're proud of you!" Why not use the photos and videos you've taken through the years to convey that message?


  • Photo Video Keepsake - Imagine celebrating your graduate's life in one powerful presentation of pictures and special songs. Is there a better way to present their life from "Birth to Graduation" on a silver platter? Most graduation gifts come and go, but this heartfelt tribute will last a lifetime.
  • Video Transfer - Whether it's videos from the past or video fresh from the graduation ceremony you need to get them transferred off old video tape formats and your phone or tablet.
  • Editing - Graduation is a day to remember. A houseful of proud friends and relatives makes for some great video moments. There will be speeches, well-wishes, advice, laughter and maybe even a few tears. Why not let us edit the high points to remember this most special day?


What are you thinking of to honor Dad on Father's Day?


  • A PhotoVideo Keepsake would be great gift for dad too!
  • How about editing a special video just for dad? Grab some of those videos or home movies from way back.
  • Add some narration. Write and narrate a poem. Get the family together and just pass around the microphone. Add some titles or special music.
  • A few simple edits and additions in the studio will make it special.


Memorial Day is a day to think about our roots and honor those in our family who sacrificed for us.
We see the biographies of the rich and famous on TV. Why not make one about the life of a loved one? We can create a 60-to-90-full-length tribute – called a LifeTIME TM Video – as custom-made documentary featuring interviews, photos, slides, videos, movies, and memorabilia. This is the ultimate honor. If you’re thinking of someone deserving don't put it off any longer. Call us today.

HVSN Top Five “Springy” things for May


Ahh May, when nature really goes into high gear! May conjures up some great movie scenes with “springy” things, and here’s our Top Five: 

Flowers - A sure sign of May is daffodils. Big Fish has one of the best daffodil scenes ever.


Birds - Birds get very active in May. Why not a thirteen foot tall giant tropical bird named Kevin from the movie UP?


Trees - And speaking of trees, how about a speaking tree. Although this apple tree from the Wizard of Oz is kind of mean he’s very memorable.


Picnics - There are picnics, and there are picnics in the Alps with ancient castles in the background. The Sound of Music “takes the cake” for picnics.


Sun The sun takes on a different hue this time of year. In Days of Heaven the sun was a silent star as Terrence Malick shot every outside scene during what is called “The Golden Hour” just after sunrise and just before sunset.

HVSN's April Top Five Movies About Taxes

April is about showers, flowers, spring cleaning, and….taxes. But in movies taxes can be funny, or at least entertaining. Here are five movies where taxes play an important part:

Happy Gilmore - Grandma owes $270,000 to the IRS. Happy develops a new talent to raise money to save her house.


The Producers - What better plot than one big giant, funny, zany fraud?


Blues brothers - A movie where you groove to great music and root for Jake and his brother Elwood as they try to raise money to pay taxes on the orphanage where they were raised.


Shawshank Redemption - When Andy’s tax skills come into play this movie moves into the next bracket.


The Untouchables Who better to prosecute the most notorious criminal in history than an accountant?

HVSN Top 5 Films for a Short Month


February is the shortest month of the year – usually three days shorter than its big brothers. So, to get your month’s movie enjoyment in less time, here are five good movies less than ninety minutes long.


Stand by Me - A great coming-of-age story complete with gunplay and a corpse. A writer recounts his journey to find the body of a missing boy, and his journey to understanding his life in a whole new way.



Toy Story - Intrigue and action as a cowboy doll is replaced by a spaceman as the top toy in the neighborhood.



Producers - Anybody can produce a Broadway hit. Apparently it’s much more difficult to produce a sure-fire flop.



Office Space - Three employees. A greedy, out of touch boss. A plan to rebel. Will it work?



Airplane! – A movie about flying is appropriate as the sight gags fly by at jet speed. Classic scenes and dialogue that is still used today.


Photo Video Keepsake: A Unique Treasure for those you Love

Spring is approaching quickly, and video would be perfect for those red-letter days, including
Mother's Day, graduations, and anniversaries. That’s why one of our most popular items this time of year is a Photo Video Keepsake. Call us today to find out more!

Are you looking to give a special gift from the heart? Don’t overlook this chance to really honor Mom, grad, or your beloved partner with a montage of photos, slides, and/or video enhanced with your honoree’s favorite music.

Why is a PhotoVideo Keepsake the perfect gift? It is:

Personal - What is more unique than beautiful photos complemented by inspiring music? Each Keepsake is a story - a customized testimony.

Powerful - What better way to say "I love you" or "I'm proud of you" or "I'd do it all over again?"

Portable - PhotoVideo Keepsakes can be shown almost anywhere – in homes, offices, auditoriums, or fellowship halls. Another reason why they are the perfect way to honor anyone, anytime and anywhere.

Practical - Keepsakes make great gifts, not just for the subject, but for all your loved ones – and they’re easily shared.

Now is the time to get started on your masterpiece. Let’s look at the calendar and note some approaching “Keepsake-worthy” events:


  • Mother’s Day – Mom has always made us feel special. Now you can do the same with a powerful PhotoVideo Keepsake.
  • Graduation – Imagine a "Birth to Graduation" presentation combining photos, videos, certificates, first grade projects, college acceptance letters, favorite music through the years.... you name it! Long after the ceremony your gift will be enjoyed for years to come.
  • Anniversaries - Create a tribute to your beloved with your time together captured through images, video and music.
  • Birthdays - Don't forget upcoming birthdays in the next few months!
  • Father’s Day - Dad will be just as moved and thrilled as Mom with a unique PhotoVideo Keepsake.

Remember, creativity takes time! Make your Photo Video Keepsake the best it can be. Call us today!
