Once or twice a month Home Video Studio holds a full day seminar on what it's like to run your own video production studio business. Many people take care of everything over the phone and email but some want to come visit our Indianapolis flagship studio. They want to meet us in person, see the studio video production and editing equipment and really just absorb the Home Video Studio experience.

It all starts on Friday evening with a get-to-know you dinner at a nice Indianapolis restaurant. We'll meet and enjoy some food and fellowship. On Saturday morning we will start early and go all day. We're going to take you through everything about running a video production and transfer business - everything that you've always wondered about Home Video Studio and more. You'll learn about how the video business works and the hours you will run your video transfer business. Will you be part-time or full-time? We'll cover transitions from your current job plus a studio tour, initial concepts, pricing, video editing software, hardware, etc. The list goes on and on. There is a lot to the Home Video Studio Business Opportunity.

The Show 'N Tell Saturday video business seminar is a day that changes lives.

We've seen it so many times! We take you through all the ins and outs of opening up a video business. It is an amazing process and an amazing day. We guarantee it will change your life (and your lifestyle!). Show 'N Tell Saturday is also a good day to bring your spouse or partner for a visit. They will be wowed and by the end of the day they will be more informed about what you want to do.

Attendance is free.

There is no charge. We reveal a lot about the video business at Show 'N Tell Saturday. You are going to learn a lot. Call or email us ASAP to make arrangements for you and your spouse (or partner) to attend. Space is always very limited so contact us now to reserve your spot.

Travel Costs are reimbursed.

We even credit your for your travel expenses (air far, rental car, gas, hotel, meals) assuming you end up buying a studio video business and many people do come on board at Show 'N Tell. Get ready to make your reservations to attend The Home Video Studio Business Show 'N Tell Saturday.

We'll talk about the money too.

How much you can make and how much it takes. You may love video editing and shooting. Producing video projects is exciting but those things don't mean anything if you aren't making the kind of money you want and need. How do you make money with a video business? That's what we will show you. Get ready to make your reservations and travel to our next Show 'N Tell Saturday.

"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."
- Tony & Lori Melendez - Amherst, OH.

Here's what we'll cover at Show 'N Tell Saturday.


The number one thing we'll cover is making money in the video production and transfer business. We'll cover pricing videos as well as collecting the money. What's the difference between a $500.00 video production and a $5000.00 video editing job? Making money with a video transfer business is easy if you follow our plan.


You'll be in our flagship Home Video Studio and training center all day so we'll definitely get into the nitty-gritty on video production equipment and video editing software. You may be currently using Vegas Video, Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro (that's our preference). It's quite possible that you have not done any video production or video editing yet. That is okay! We will show you how we make money with video editing and our exclusive video transfer and conversion software. Plus we will teach you how to do the actual video production and video editing. How will you outfit your studio? You'll also see our signature Home Video Edit Desk. It's the heart of our video business system and comes in over two thousand colors. Perhaps you already have video production equipment that can be used? If so that will save you some money. There's a lot to discuss at Home Video Studio's Show 'N Tell Saturday!


Home Video Studio is a short cut to success - making money with an at home video business. You may be looking for both financial success and creative achievements - money in the bank and an Oscar! (we have our own version of the Oscar - more on that later...). We make no promises about how much money you can make with your new video business. We will promise to put you in an environment with other video production business owners who have the same wining vision. Our mission is to help you achieve success as you define it with a video business - your own Home Video Studio.


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 video production and transfer business studio? We can do that for you. Want to get your family involved in the video business? We'll help train you and your family on how to successfully run a video production and video editing business. The videotape and home movie transfer business is a very family friendly business. You will love it.


We'll discuss transitions from your current job into a new video production business and career. We are experts at starting a video business. Are you going to quit your job? Come out of retirement? Convert a 401k and start a video business? 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. This one day seminar is packed with great ideas for starting a video production, editing and video transfer business. We cover topics like securing insurance, start up costs for a video business, etc. Making a successful transition into your new Home Video Studio Business is key.


We are experts in funding and financing for a video production business. If you need us to help you find the money we would be happy to assist you. It is easy to convert a 401k or IRA with zero penalty. Many people do a refinance or a home equity loan to fund their new video business. There are other avenues for raising money for your new Home Video Studio business opportunity as well. One of the things we do on Saturday afternoon at Show 'N Tell Saturday is to cover financing. It's not that difficult to get your new video studio funded. We know a lot about financing a video production business. If you need consultation on funding call us immediately. This is important. Do not go to the bank on your own or start applying for credit. Talk to us first. There is an art and a science to getting your new video business financed.
