If a picture is worth a thousand words, then your collection of home videos undoubtedly amounts to quite a fortune. And, while
the sentimental value of your old 8mm, or VHS home videos may not decrease, it is inevitable that their quality and overall lifespan will.
However, you can reinvest these treasured memories into a digital format where they'll last a lifetime, or even longer
Home Video Studio specializes in precisely that. They can take all of your aged home videos on 8mm, 16mm, Beta, VHS or just
about any other type of format, and transfer it to much higher quality medium, usually a DVD.
According to the owners of Home Video Studio, Tony and Lori Melendez, a typical VHS will only last for about 10 to 15 years.
Additionally, viewing older film, such as 8 mm, 16 mm, or Beta is very difficult due to a lack of players available, and it's only a matter of time
before VHS players are phased out as well. Digital video, on the other hand will not only last longer and is more readily available, but it is also
easier to reproduce or give copies to other family members or place into storage for safe keeping.
Not only will they transfer your film to a digital medium, with Home Video Studio, you can also have your film edited. They can
place clips together at specific sections and add voice-overs or background music.
One of their most popular products are video montages of a person's life. They can become a slide show of pictures, a montage of old videos,
or a combination of both. These make excellent and heartfelt gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings or holidays (such as Mother's Day,
Tony and Lori created a personal video of professional skate boarder, Chad Muska, which his mother gave him for a birthday
present. They also made a graduation video for Allie LaForce after she won the Miss Teen USA crown. It really is the gift that keeps on giving
because you will watch it again and again, says Lori. If we don't make you cry, then we didn't do our job.
Another highly sought-after product are sports highlight videos. These videos of your son or daughter's athletic career make an
excellent and unforgettable addition to any application for a scholarship, to a college or just as a memento. Lori says that she has a lot of clients
in their 40s and 50s that dig up their old high school football films on 16 mm for reproduction.
Lori says that one of the most fascinating parts of the job is viewing some the old footage. We've done films from as early as
1928. That is just awesome to see that. From some of this film we've seen President Kennedy when he came to George Daniel Field, we've
seen Lorain when it was booming, she said. There's just been so many neat things! It's part of the past and its nice to preserve it.
