Scenes of Americana Retold Through Old Home Movies
Indianapolis, IN Your familys home movies might be seen on the big silver screen. Home Video Studio is collecting old family movie films to be part of its feature-length documentary called the Great American Home Movie Project.
Robert Hanley, CEO of Home Video Studio in Indianapolis is creating this documentary film project. We tell families that their memories capture an era of days gone by in America. Wouldnt it be great to share these images with others before they disappear all together? Hanley says.
Robert Hanley, the founder of the Home Video Studio franchise and an award-winning film and video producer/director, is currently archiving thousands of home movies to be part of his feature film. This documentary is believed to be the first of its kind. Home Video Studio is Americas leading video production franchise, with studios located throughout the United States, two in Canada and one in Sweden.
What Ive seen over the past 25 years of transferring film is spectacular and it is something I think everyone should see, says Hanley. Ive watched America unfold before my eyes through home movie footage of backyard

barbecues, dance recitals, family holiday celebrations and even favorite vacation spots.
These 8mm, Super 8 and 16 mm home movie films offer a slice of Americana dating as far back as the 1920s. Home Video Studio customers, who are transferring their home movies to DVD, are being asked to participate in this Great American Home Movie Project as a way to preserve nostalgia.
Film and VHS tapes do not have a long shelf-life and can easily deteriorate, adds Robert Hanley. This film is a great way to preserve a part of American history that is literally fading away.
Customer home movies will be archived and their original film will be returned intact. They also receive a price discount for participating in this film project.
The Great American Home Movie Project documentary is hoped to be released in movie theaters nationwide. For more information on this project go to www.facebook.com/TheGreatAmericanHomeMovie.
