Choose your new Studio!
Once you start you'll go through our twelve-month set-up and training program. Home Video Studio is a turnkey studio system and is all-inclusive. We will take care of everything from your website and brochure design to your studio installation and, of course, to your twenty-one days of in-person training in your first twelve months alone.
You'll start out with five days of basic training in Indianapolis, Indiana and then five days of installation training at your location. You'll attend our mini-college of Home Video Studio - Advanced Training - held in February/March once again in Indianapolis, Indiana. We run two to four tracks of classes for six days both on production and post-production as well as on marketing, sales, and operations.
In July you'll once again train with our other Studio Owners - this time at our annual convention for five days. At the convention we'll concentrate on video production with in-studio as well as on-location videography. We'll once again provide post-production, sales, and marketing classes. You'll also attend and compete in our annual Hanley Awards Gala Celebration & Black-Tie Dinner.
With Home Video Studio Owners from all over the United States and Canada attending these two events and training with you you'll learn a lot from your colleagues as well, and experience what it's like to be part of the Home Video Studio Family. Our goal is to make you into a top-notch video Producer/Director/Editor in twelve months. We have training events every week for you to learn and hone your craft. Ongoing support is suggested and available after your first twelve months. We have studio owners entering their sixteenth and seventeenth year! We are very good at what we do and you will become very good at what you do, too. You're going to love your new lifestyle!
Let's be clear: Our collective mission is to make money with video. Lifestyle and making money is the heart and soul of our program! The adage applies here: It takes money to make money. If funding is a concern we do provide assistance assist with finding funding for you.
Every day people with the best of intentions start video businesses. Many of them start on a shoestring because either they don't have the money to begin in the proper manner or they can't see the wisdom of outfitting their new studio and themselves with the right equipment, training, techniques and tools that are needed to succeed.
Oftentimes people focus on gear - cameras, steady devices, rigs, sound gear, lighting, drones, quad copters, etc. Who doesn't love gear? We love it too, and we're going to teach you how to get business and how to run your studio and how to make money with the right equipment at the right stage of your studio's growth! Every Studio Package includes our Home Video Studio System: our methods of marketing, advertising, sales, production, operations, and, of course, training on that system.
Literally hundreds of hours have gone into the design and engineering of our studios. Call us at 1-866-714-1956 to find out which package is right for you.
We have spent years developing our "gear." Literally hundreds of hours have gone into the design and engineering of our studios. You will find that each system is very user-friendly. We offer four (4) turnkey studio packages. In other words, there are four ways to start out:

THE DIRECTOR - The Home Video Studio Signature Edit Desk (it's like the Star Ship Enterprise!) a DVA Deluxe - our DVA and DVD Automated Authoring System - plus everything else you need to get going in style.

THE HVS PRODUCTION PACKAGE - If you want to shoot your own video you're going to need some really cool gear. The HVS Production Package includes camera, sound, lighting and grip equipment. Lights, Camera - Action! Note: Most owners wait until they have a training or two under their belts to start acquiring video production equipment.
Note: you can add our HVS Production and Grip Equipment Module to any of our systems. All systems include our exclusive twenty-one day, twelve-month training program including onsite installation!
Note: shipping and handling fees not included.
Work from home or from a studio store with any of these packages! We can help you mix and match equipment.

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.

"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."
- John Montgomery - Newark, OH.
"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."
