Featured Studio Owner

Chris Unger
Home Video Studio - Dallas

Date: 09/24/2011

Chris Unger is a Tough and Tenacious Texan. She's a Home Video Studio owner who is diligent to daily do what it takes to get customers and keep them. Running her business for three years now Chris shows no signs of slowing down. That's why Chris Unger is our Home Video Studio September Owner of the Month.

Chris has always had a passion for video. So much, in fact, that she studied film at Colorado Women's College and video production at the Art Institute of Dallas. She also attended The Film School of France in Paris. Ultimately graduating from college with a degree in Women's Studies armed her to began her "real life" education as a freelance woman producer and editor.

"I did it all," says Chris, "from shooting documentaries to production assistant to editing...and that's when cut and paste really meant cut and paste."

Like many of our owners who find Home Video Studio Chris spent time navigating the rapids of freelancing and never quite being able to get in control of her total business. "For instance," says Unger, "I knew I needed to advertise and market myself but knew I didn't have the means to do it the way it must be done. I knew I had to keep up with the latest trends and technology but was too busy working." The Tenacious Texan pressed on.

One day Chris saw an ad for Home Video Studio in VideoMaker and responded. Soon she realized one of our (and her) favorite sayings: You can be in business for yourself but not by yourself. She opened her studio a little over three years ago in August of 2008. Was it a good move?

"It's the best thing I could have done," says Chris. "I didn't have to reinvent the wheel. And I love the support. For instance, at our last Getaway we were given a step-by-step guide to marketing on how to add marketing activities in layers rather than just look at one big overwhelming thing that felt like a duty."

Chris routinely posts great weekly earnings. She has also won the Most Improved Award at the annual Hanley Awards and was nominated for a Hanley as well. Why? Because she gets out and does what needs to be done.

"My mother always told me that old saying 'Where there's a will there's a way' and that's my simple philosophy," says Chris. "I love meeting people and hearing their stories and then helping them tell that story. That's why I've always persued this business and why I always try to get better at it."

Show 'N Tell: A first glimpse

"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.


MAKING MONEY
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!
STUDIO EQUIPMENT
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.
FINANCIAL GOALS
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.
CREATIVE GOALS
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.
TRANSITIONS
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.
FUNDING
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!
