Featured Studio Owner
Home Video Studio - Arvada
This last year was a year of major changes for Steve and Kim Dalbec. Among them were Steve retiring from UPS after a lengthy career, moving from Georgia back to their home state of Colorado, and opening their new Home Video Studio. But change is often times a good thing and the Dalbecs would have to agree.
They've already won several Hanley awards! The couple collected one last year and picked up another one at this year's ceremonies at Walt Disney World.
"In my spare time, I have always loved to shoot videos for my family," says Steve. "Owning a Home Video Studio has allowed me to have a continuation of my passion, only now I get paid for it."
The Dalbecs have developed some steady customers, including a few local charitable organizations, and a client who is producing his third instructional woodcarving DVD with them. They also have been successful in receiving multiple photo keepsake and film transfer orders. A recent job was an 8-thousand foot film transfer order documenting a family's yearly fishing trips to Canada in the mid-1950s through the early 1960s. This customer originally ordered 80 copies of the 5-DVD set but ordered five more sets of DVDs after being so pleased with the film transfer.
Steve focuses more on the technical side of producing videos, while Kim is handling marketing. The Dalbecs have been steadily advertising by doing direct mail campaigns to help improve their studio's name recognition. Their efforts are starting to pay off, as they are now getting referrals for their Home Video Studio work.
The Dalbecs feel very proud of what they've accomplished in one year and admit they have more things to do to continue to build on their initial success. Best wishes Steve and Kim for an even better 2009!
"Tammy and I came to a Show 'N Tell Saturday. The initial conversation was Robert talking about what it is to be a Home Video studio Owner. Of course we'd listened to the CD's over and over in our car for a couple of months. I think Then we had the presentation and we signed right there at the end of the presentation."

"Our Show 'N Tell Saturday was on May 11, 2002 - Mother's Day weekend! We were already operating our own video business, but we wanted to run it at a higher level with better equipment. We needed a plan and a system like the one offered by Home Video Studio. If you're thinking about HVS, you should go to Show 'N Tell Saturday."

Here's what we'll cover at Show 'N Tell Saturday.
The number one thing we'll cover is making money in the video business. I'll cover pricing video as well as collecting the money. What's the difference between a $500.00 video and a $5000.00 video? Are you leaving money on the table? I'll teach you how we do it! Oh... what about a $30,000.00 video?
ADVERTISING & MARKETING
This is the great unknown for most people who attempt to enter our industry. How do you get business and find clients? I'll share with you.
TRAINING & SUPPORT
I'll cover our 12 month and 21 day in person training program in depth. How do we take you from where you are now to where you want to be? We are very good at this as long as you can take that first step and get to Show 'N Tell!
You'll be in my studio all day so we'll definitely get into the nitty gritty on equipment and gear. How will you outfit your studio? Do you have current equipment that can be used? Maybe and if so that will save you some money.
Home Video Studio is a short cut to success. You may be looking for both financial success and creative achievements - money in the bank and an Oscar! We make no promises except to put you in an environment with others who have the same vision. Our mission is to help you achieve success as you define it.
Not everyone is out to make a fortune. Home Video Studio is a very fun and exciting business and lifestyle. Want to turn your hobby into a real live functioning studio? We can do that for you. Want to get your family involved in the business? We'll help train them. This is a very family friendly business.
We'll discuss transitions and getting started. Going to quit your job? Come out of retirement? Convert a 401k? Will you work the studio part time until you can go full time? We will start designing a plan for you at Show 'N Tell Saturday.
We are experts in funding and financing. If you need us to help you find the money we would be happy to. It is easy to convert a 401k or IRA with zero penalty. Many people do a refi or a home equity loan. There are other avenues as well. One of the things we do on Saturday afternoon is cover financing. It's not that difficult. If you need consultation on funding call us.
We suggest you bring your spouse/partner to our Show 'N Tell Saturday. That's our treat. You'll know a whole lot more about running a Home Video Studio by end of day on Saturday!
