This is my first experience using a videographer, and Ken has been a real pleasure to work with - professional, efficient, reliable, and going the extra mile to make sure I was happy. And the resulting video is exactly what I was hoping for. I highly recommend his services and will use his services again in the future.

Home Video Studio SAVED the day for me.! ! I run a remodeling company and Ken does all of our video testimonies for our website. We have been using Home Video Studio for several years. They do a great job. But last week, Ken was my HERO. I called him with only one days' notice because I had a speaking presentation the next day. I asked him to take a couple of our testimonial videos and put a three minute clip together using multiply clients. Not only did he come through for me in a timely manner, the clip was fantastic. Exactly what I needed for my presentation. Thank you Ken and HVS. You are the BEST. ! ! !

My mom had used Ken in the past for an event for her church. However, this time we were contacting Ken to do a photo video for my fathers celebration of life video for his funeral service. Due to the circumstances we contacted Ken five days before we needed the DVD to be complete. Ken had a large order in but he still fit our request in and did an awesome job!
We will definitely use his services in the future and have already referred others who were amazed at the awesome job he and his staff did.
Thank you so much!

I found Ken's Home Video Service on the Internet. After reviewing the positive feedback I thought I would give them a try. The professionalism from an initial question to finished product was Top-notch. Quick responses to emails, to meeting Ken in person to the finished product was more than I expected. I would highly recommend his business. Thank you

- Ken Olson from Falls Church
What a nice job on a bunch of 35 to 45 year old movies my father took. I had no idea what was on most of them as I don't have a projector but the finished product from Mr Sander & Co was beyond my expectations as I have seen the quality of some old super 8 movies in the past. The cd is clearer & sharper than the original based on what I have seen - nice background music too. Anyone looking to get movies transferred to cd ( and I would guess any other services they offer ) , this is the place to go without having to send them out. Very reasonable price too. Thanks, Home Video Services

I just want to commend Jen Sander and others at Home Video Studio for the professional work they did in converting my cousin's wedding 8 mm film to to a DVD. The job was very professional and with all the touch up work Ken had to do like adding still pictures to the DVD to add to the event made a 40 + years old film as if it was made recently. Everybody was very happy with the end product. Any delays were caused by last minute changes we requested and the cost was very reasonable. I would recommend Home Video Studio to any one. Thanks.

We wanted to do a video for our mother for her 80th Birthday Celebration party and found Ken's studio on the web. I had no idea what I was doing in terms of putting the video together or what I wanted, but with Ken's guidance and most of all patience, we put together a marvelous video to honor my mother. Our entire family got so much joy from watching the video. At times we laughed, cried, and it was truly an amazing video that we all loved. Thank you Ken for doing such a great job!

Ken: I want to tell you how much I LOVE my movies! The quality is excellent, and so much better than the ones I had copied by the "other guys." Thank you for the excellent work! The DVDs are going to make fabulous Christmas presents for my family.
BTW, lesson learned: Forget Groupon. . . I should have had you do ALL of the film to begin with. :-(
I look forward to utilizing your services again in the future.

Ken was successful in duplicating our old audio casette tapes to a CD as well as transferring an engagement video to DVD, while diminishing the background sounds so our voices could be heard more clearly.....They did fantastic work! We would highly recommend them and will use them again for all of our needs in the future!

i had around 50 old 8mm family film from the 50's and 60's.
we had a old projector to watch them. Ken put all my film on CD's, improved the color and clarity making viewing 100x better.
He was so easy to work with and he really enjoys his work.
thanks again Ken.

Hello my name is Joy Nasrallah and this is the best company that I have dealt with in regards to transferring a 30 year old vhs betamax tape to a dvd of my mother and family at a new years party. Ken did an outstanding job and has great customer service skills and was very reasonable. I wanted it the video lightened because it was too dark and edited and he did all of that and I was very pleased. I also had 1 copy for me and 3 other copies made for my siblings. I will definitely use this company again for my videos and old vhs tapes. Thanks again Ken and staff. Joy Nasrallah

Ken Sander Video Services transferred a VHS tape to a DVD, which contained my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. The DVD copy was edited by placing named markers, making it easier to find scenes quickly. It was a big hit at my parents' 65th anniversary!! I have already requested additional copies! Thank you for your time and expertise!

Ken did a phenomenal job for us when he transferred some old movies to DVD. My mother passed away and we played the DVD at the reception. Most of the people in attendance were in those old home movies which were made about 50 years ago. A true professional with expertise in his trade. Highly recommend!

Ken was the utmost professional. We brought him over 25 years worth of home videos on 8mm as well as VCR tape. Everything was completed on time and as promised and the quality is fantastic. Great memories to pass along! Many thanks and will be happy to recommend you to all of our friends

- CJ from Vienna
Ken and his company provided fantastic service. I had quite a few old home movies (VHS, 8mm) that I wanted converted to DVD. It took a lot for me to trust anyone enough to leave those valuable tapes/memories out of my control, but Ken took care of that. He also produced a wonderful wedding video, using my requested edits, from 4 VHS tapes (a long overdue project from 15 years ago) When I surprised my wife with it, my 7-year old said, "I don't think she likes it Dad, she's crying!" I trusted Ken to handle some items very important to us and he truly delivered. He also treated me fairly on the pricing. I would absolutely recommend Ken and his home video studio.

- Mary Reider Van Ellis from Pipersville, PA
Ken transferred over 50 rolls of my father's 8mm film onto discs so that my sisters and I and our families can now enjoy all the effort that dad took to document our family over the years. Some of the film was almost 60 years old, and Ken quickly won my father's trust, that he could handle the job. He not only did a high quality job with the transfer, he also patiently waited while my sisters and I (all in different states), sent him pages of edits to 'cut and paste' segments to fine-tune the cronology. He addressed our questions and always had suggestions to make things easier, such as the naming of the segments. An unexpected highlight was the way that Ken used music from his own collection to beautifully coordinate the time and mood of the movies. My father regularly comments on how Ken seemed to be able to 'read' what he wanted. Ken has a great feel for people and the importance of their memories, and delivered something to our family that was well beyond our expectation. Thank you, Ken and daughter!

Ken took a dozen of our old Super 8 videos and converted them into DVD format so we can see them more easily and frequently.
He did a great job, had it done in a week and for a very reasonable price.

Ken and Co. transferred a whole box of all of our old VHS, 16mm and who knows what else onto a nice small set of DVDs and they look great. He is always careful with these keepsakes and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!!

I had Ken transfer all of our family Hi-8 tapes to DVD (about 25 tapes). The work was superior, and fast. I had researched several companies and found that price, quality, and speed - Home Video Studio was the best choice. Many of my friends have tons of tapes and want to transfer them and I refer them all to Ken. I prefer to support local businesses especially ones who do great work.

Ken did an awesome job with our Super 8 videos! The quality is excellent and did a quick conversion over the busy Christmas Holiday! Thank you!

- Kent from Fairfax
Ken took a collection of film from as old as 40+ years ago and put it all together into a well designed, high quality DVD. As the old 8mm film had no sound, he added an instrumental track to the DVD which complimented the action on the film well. I could NOT be more satisfied with the end product. Ken has my full confidence and recommendation for any future media transfer needs I might have. And the price was certainly more than fair for the quality of the final product received.

I recently had Ken do a photo montage for my sons upcoming rehearsal dinner. This will be a surprise for the bride and groom. I knew the exact music I wanted and had an idea of the layout of the pictures and some captioning. Ken listened very closely to what I wanted to accomplish. Best of all he was enthusiastic and made it happen. Working on this project was fun and stress free thanks to his organizational skills and talent. He gave me a date for my first viewing and a date for the finalized version. It was ready several days before the date he promised. I have to say I was THRILLED with the outcome and would highly recommend him for this. I have shared it with a couple of close friends and everyone loves it. It really did turn out great! Thanks Ken, it was a fun project.

I would highly recommend Ken Sander to anyone who is in need of his services. He was professional, knowledgeable, organized and most importantly, listened to what we required and responded timely. Our video, created by Ken is now one of our most valued possessions. In short, the man can work magic.

Ken converted two VHS home videos to DVD for me. I am extremely pleased with the results! Ken even went the extra mile restoring one of the VHS tapes that was dirty and barely playable. Thanks!

I can't thank Ken, at Home Video Studio, enough for the service he was able to provide me. My daughter was getting married and I wanted to surprise her and her fiance at their rehearsal dinner with a DVD, a pictorial really, of their lives from infancy to date. I wanted music for specific pictures and I was at a loss as to how to accomplish this. The wedding was only 2 weeks away! A friend told us about Ken and his services and thought he might be able to help. I gave Ken over 100 pictures, some in very bad shape and he created magic. My new son-in-law watches his copy of the DVD every day and sometimes more than once a day. I think that speaks for itself, but I'll say it again, Ken Sanders is the man to go to for your Digital needs of all kinds. Thank you again Ken, for an amazing job.

We only found Ken Sander after a less than satisfactory movie conversion experience at a local camera store. In our case some of our home movies went back 50 to 60 years and no doubt presented some significant challenges. We also wanted to do our own editing of the converted movies by adding titles and sound and using appropriate grouping of scenes.
We are pleased to report that Ken Sander accommodated all of our special needs quite successfully and did so at a very competitive price. He patiently did the conversions (twice I believe) and stored the resulting digital files on a customer provided portable hard drive, This storage medium allows us to edit the movies to our hearts content on our home Windows OS based computer before burning the DVDs.
We feel fortunate to have Ken Sanders Home Video Studio in our community and are pleased to recommend him for your storage media conversion needs.

This past Christmas, my brother-in-law and I schemed to commandeer our spouses collection of home movies. We then secretly had them converted to a DVD for Christmas gifts by Home Video Studio. We expected the DVD's to be a hit with the spouses (which they were) but we had no idea about how enjoyable, evocative and comforting they would be to the extended family. The home movies that spanned my husbands childhood provided a lot of entertainment for my grown and nearly grown children. However, the greatest impact was not anticipated. My mother-in-law was moved to tears and absolute gratitude when she viewed the young images of her recently deceased son (my husbands brother). The unexpected opportunity to revisit his childhood, even for a short while, was a delight and comfort to her. The preservation of those memories was a priceless gift that we were able to share with several generations. Beyond that, Ken was a delight to work with, as he seemed intuitively able to discern my wishes for production. Even though I was leery of entrusting our family treasures to a stranger, Ken allayed my fears by the respectful way he handled my box of old film reels and listened to my concerns. The whole experience with Ken and his Studio was nothing short of wonderful.

Wow! Our family is so very pleased with the excellent work Ken Sander did in transfering our reels of home movies from the 1970s and 1980s to digital format. The color, clarity, and quality could not have been more top notch. I would very highly recommend Ken's Home Video Studio.

What a miracle, and what an amazing result!
Home Video Studio took my 52-year-old home movies and converted them to a DVD, with indexing and background music to boot. The quality of the end product is fantastic and is such an amazing legacy for our family.

Ken, The DVDs you made for the Silcox family are truly wonderful! What a gift! It reminds me (and reaffirms) that it has truly been a good life and what a lucky woman Ive been. And the kids ...now know and can see how truly they were loved and how much fun their childhood. My compliments to Kathryn for the music choices.
I will be singing your praises to all and you will be hearing from me soon, with a fist full of videos! Thank you again, and have a great New Year. Judie

Ken, Thank you for such an outstanding job on the DVD of our family and parent's 50 years together. The DVD brought lots of smiles, laughter and tears. It was so well received.

We had over 3700 feet of movies dating from 1964 to 1976. Ken did an amazing job of recovering it and putting it all in date order. He also got everything done in a short period of time so we could have the DVD's by Christmas. My family said it was the BEST present they ever received. I highly recommend Ken and the Home Video Studio.

I wanted to thank you for the beautiful job you did with the 8mms; my father was extremely pleased with how they turned out--he said that you took the shake out of them and wondered how you did that!~ I am extremely grateful to you for preserving these priceless family memories.

A special thanks to Katherine for taking the time to duplicate a video for me not only once but three times in one day! I truly appreciate the great service, friendliness and kindness.
