Pictures on a computer just dont capture the memories like Joes DVDs. Over the last six years we have utilized Joes service to take ordinary vacation photos and turn them into lasting memories set to our choice of music; with the click of a TV remote all of those memories come right back. Over the years the slide transitions and the creativity of the projects on Joes end have become second to none. All of the projects were Christmas gifts to my wife and when asked, she will tell you that the vacation DVDs created by Joe and his team are the most cherished gifts. We look forward to our next vacation and the amazing DVDs that we know Joe will create with our photos. Thanks again Joe; job well done as usual.

11/15/17Greetings Joseph and staff,As a repeat customer, I'm compelled to sing your praises once again.Our performance of imitating Sonny and Cher performing , I've Got You Babe, on an old, old VHS tape and onto a CD is just wonderful. Years ago, I had another company (before I knew of your company) make several CD's for me. They were such poor quality, I couldn't gift it to others. Thanks to you, you revamped the CD's, catching many errors the other company made. Now, I can pass these wonderful memories on. I never have a problem reaching your company via email or phone call. You always respond immediately.I'm putting another project together, so you'll be hearing from me again.Frankly, I wouldn't entrust irreplaceable photos to another company.Many thanks,Irish

I had been looking for someone to repair my moisture damaged tapes for over a year. Once I described the condition, at least 15 different video companies told me that my tapes could not be repaired due to moisture damage. Although Joe did not offer any guarantees, he promised that he would do his absolute best to restore the footage of my Marine brothers in arms. Joe not only restored my priceless footage, he did it in time to be used for this years Marine Corps Ball, which will add a special nostalgic treat for those old timers present. Thank you Joe for your professionalism and attention to detail. You have earned both a customer and a freind for life.

- Luis Otero from Corpus Christi, TX

We had large project for client with family, political service, professional boxing and more in his collection of videos he wanted to transfer to DVD. It included 4-5 different media types which we had Video Home Services transfer to AVI files for full editing. The turnaround time was phenomenal and the clarity of the transfers was outstanding, as well as the careful handling and logging of such a big job. We would recommend Home Video Services-Bolingbrook to everyone. We felt like we were a very valued customer. Al & Brenda

02/11/2016 Video Editing

Joe was incredible. I needed a large number of video sequences from a digital cassette cut down and finalized into a YouTube video to submit for my daughter’s video dance audition. I had made a mistake and thought the deadline was the following month when in fact the deadline was actually a couple days away. I found Joe online and called him out of the blue. Not only was he a pleasure to work with and did a perfect job on the video but he only had one day over the weekend to work with me on the cuts and complete the YouTube. Thanks to Joe we made the deadline and I found out yesterday my daughter was accepted to the Joffrey Program she auditioned for!

We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful job you did with our slides. We had not viewed them in over 30 years and when we watched the video that you made, it brought back so many wonderful memories of our family! The music that you added was perfect.

08/22/2014 Home Movie Transfer

August 6, 2014 Happy Husband, Happy Life ;-) Last year my husband was given 11 reels of 8mm film. They ranged in age from 40 to 65 years. The reels remained in the garage for 18 months. At last, got the idea to have them transferred to DVD`s. A daunting task. Let's just say I'm digitally challenged. After much research, I almost gave up because it seemed very costly and confusing. Finally I came across the website for Home Video Studio. They were supportive, patient, professional, thorough and listened to and answered my questions. The finished product was wonderful.The background music complemented the film. Their prices were very fair. Some companies had quoted me two and three times higher. Thank you Home Video Studio for your excellent service. My husband thanks you too.

- Karen O from Chicago

05/08/2014 Home Movie Transfer

Once again I want to thank you for the home movie that you transferred for me. The quality and the music selection fits perfectly. The videos brought joy to my family here in the U.S. and Panama. There were tears of joy in the family. I did not know my grandparents and my sister were in this film as well.

- Luis from Elgin

03/19/2014 Home Movie Transfer

I needed old 8mm movies transferred to DVD quickly, as my younger sister passed away, and we were holding a memorial for her. Home Video Studio did a fabulous job transferring an hour's worth of film in two days, with titles for each section, and at a very reasonable cost. Thank you for being there for us at a difficult time. I have lots more film to transfer!

- Val from Darien

- kim white from frankfort

03/19/2014 Video to DVD

I asked Home Video Studio to repair a Hi 8 tape for me, which they did, and transfer the contents to DVD. But I told them I wanted to edit the contents on my computer. When they returned my repaired tape, they included not only a DVD but also a second DVD (for which they did not charge) containing a video file suitable for loading into my computer. Their service is fast; their quality, first rate; their prices, just right.

My dad passed away in 2013. He had a box of. Reel to reels. We wanted to put them. On a. DVD to keep memories alive. I cannot thank Joe enough for all the memories he has brought to life for my family this past Christmas. I was so pleased with the personal touch Joe provided and he was so easy to talk to. He has a passion for what he does for what he and is very skilled at it. I did not have any special time I needed the DVD completed by, but Joe wanted to get it the DVD back to my family by Christmas. I recommend Home Video Studio.

we had some old audio reel-to-reel 1/8 inch tapes of deceased relatives on my father's side, and wanted them all transferred to cd's for each of my cousins at a family reunion. they were the only ones in the area who had equipment needed for 1/8 inch tapes-- all other companies could only accommodate 1/4 inch and up. the finished product was excellent in quality, presented in protected cases, fully marked with what was on them and ready in plenty of time for the trip. I highly recommend them! awesome job!

I have been extremely pleased with the quality of HVS's work. I found them on the web and initially gave them 5 of our 20+ year old VHS home movies to convert to DVD and save on an external hard drive. I have since given them 6 others and had my sister send them her tapes. Both of us have been very pleased with the quality and pricing.

02/05/2012 Sports Scholalship

Joe is a professional who did a great job of designing a highlight video and compressing game segments for me to send to college programs. He truly understands how to capture the attention of coaches and scouts by making video easy to view by drawing focus with slow motion, pointers, and showing video before and after the play. I recommend using Joe to help communicate your skills to college coaches or scouts.

- Marcus from Plainfield

01/11/2012 Home Movie Transfer

I am very pleased with the professionalism and friendliness of Joe B. He was always available and very accomodating. My family was extremely impressed and moved to tears when they saw the video/picture presentation I gave to my brother for his 21st birthday. He has Down's Syndrome and is very much into seeing himself and family members on video. He loved it soo much that he has taken it everywhere he goes to show it off! He even showed it at barber shop! I must say Joe did an excellent job at pulling together my ideas and respecting my wishes while also doing what was going to look best. His work exceeded my expectations. I really appreciated him allowing me to see drafts via YouTube before the final cut. He also was kind enough to redo a video of me live at his home, which was not a part of the original plan. His services are also affordable, especially if you take his advise and come prepared with your media organized! I will definitely be using him again in the future! Thanks Joe!

Just wanted to commend Joe Buerger on his EXCELLENT job of making my dream come true of turning 19 years of my only child's VHS tapes and 8mm tapes into beautiful DVD's! Joe spent so much time and effort making this job a personal challenge to get everything exactly right as he does for all of his work that he does for me and my family. Nothing less than perfection is what Joe is all about and I just love him for that! You will never find a better person to put all your years of memories into a compact form for an entire family to get together and view. Thanks Joe! You're the BEST!

- Lori from Indian Head Park

04/20/2011 Video Production

I met Joe Buerger through a different industry and found him to be an outstanding person. When he told me that he had branched out, I knew that if I ever needed any kind of video service I would give him a shot without thinking twice. My daughter is a music education major and was interested in going to grad school to pursue a masters degree in Science of Music Technology and needed a video audition of a live performance. It is a much sought after degree program and very few students are chosen. Joe took an amateur recital video of hers, edited it, and put it on DVD with a photo of her in action on the actual disc. It was professionally done and came out great. He exceeded our expectations ten-fold. The university loved it. She was accepted and starts grad school in August! Joe was able to make her hard work shine through. We will always use Home Video Studio. Thanks again for your creativity and professionalism.

I must say that I am quite pleased, more than pleased w/ Joe's work of transferring our wedding tape to DVD along with scanning photo's of us when we were younger as an introduction to our wedding DVD. At first, I was a little skeptical because I found HVS through the internet and a lot of times, you can be leary about services you find through the internet. After communicating w/ Joe many times, reading some of the other testimonials and then watching some of the video clips he did, my nerves were at ease! Joe couldn't of made it easier. Because of the distance from where I live to where Joe is located, I was able to send him everything via FedEx. Once he transferred the tape, we were able to meet in-person. After we met, I was so grateful to have found Joe and his services which are highly professional! To reduce travel, Joe sent us a private YouTube with the introduction/edits he had done and that was fantastic! I highly recommend Joe and HVS to anyone. Joe, thank you for making our memories even more precious!

- K'Shea from Chicago

04/20/2011 Home Movie Transfer

Joseph -- The parcel arrived today 4/19 which contained the DVD's . I want to thank you for mailing that off to me and for your fast service. Of course, I quickly unwrapped the parcel as I couldn't wait to see the DVD. Oh my, it was just beautiful - The color is just so bright--and--and--the background music was just great. I really think you put it together quite well. Thanks again for the excellent work. - I will let many people know of your excellent work.

04/08/2011 Duplications

Home Video Service converted nearly 400 full-length music CD's to digital files, organized the files (and the CD's!), and transfered the files to three portable hard drives - all quite quickly. I have sent a drive to each of sisters. Now each of us can enjoy my father's music collection from the comfort of our own computers!

- Kathleen from Chicago

My wife and I just watched the 2 video disks you make last week. They were fantastic. This is of my 1st daughter from 3 months old and her little sister being born. We laughed and had, big smiles, and a few tears about seeing our parents with the kids. Thank-you for doing such a nice job. Even the back ground music was nice. The 1st 8mm films were from 30 and a half years ago. seeing our 1st house and dogs were so nice to see too. I will reccomend you to my friends. Thank you for those great moments we had long time ago.

- Ron Cervenka from Willow Springs

03/11/2011 Sports Scholalship

Joe, First I would like apologize for taking so long to get this response to you. I have been having problems with my computer . My entire family really enjoyed the video you did. We had a number of game DVD's that we wanted put into a Highlight DVD that we could send to colleges, Since my son had a number of injuries during high school he did not have a lot of playing time. The highlights from his senior year were all we had available, You took the time to meet with my son and me to make sure we were satisfied during production. Thank you for a job well done and we will recommend you others needing video work done.

- Eric N. from Bolingbrook

12/12/2010 Home Movie Transfer

I have nothing but "praises" to say about Joe and his work. He is not only a super nice person to deal with but he made "magic " happen by getting my DVD's done 2 weeks earlier than planned when I told him that I really needed them. He is very professional and did an INCREDIBLE job transferring my really old 8mm films to dvd's. He also did a fantastic job on a picture slide show of my dad's old baseball team. My parents were very surprised and overjoyed with all the memory's that until now have been hidden away in a closet. Thank you Joe for the great work! I will most certainly use you again in the future and will recommend you to everyone.

- Michelle Smith from Odell

12/05/2010 Video Editing

After months of shooting footage and running into road blocks with editing of the video for our group Swagnerd, my business partner happened across Joe's information. We didn't know at the time what a blessing this was. To say that I am more than impressed by the quality and efficiency of Joe's work is an understatement. Creating a vision of his own, he put together a top quality product! Joe, thank you for bringing this story board to life! We will definitely be doing more work with you!!!

- Brandi - Cashdollar Entertainment, Inc. from Aurora

11/28/2010 Home Movie Transfer

How many times in your life will someone actually exceed expectations? I suspect that the answer is "hardly ever", if at all. Well, when it came to saving precious memories from home movies, taken back in the 50's, we went to the right place and Joe EXCEEDED our expectations. Don't gamble with that old movie film. Joe Buerger will treat your memories as if they were his own. For some people, it's a job. For Joe, it's an obligation that is taken very seriously. Thank you, Joe.

11/11/2010 Home Movie Transfer

Look no further - this is it! What a great service! Joe at 'Home Video Studio' here in Bolingbrook always does a great job. Fast & friendly and at a great price too. Joe took our 40 reels of old film from the 50's and 60's (that hadn't been viewed in decades) and transfered them to DVD complete with the perfect music and titles introducing each reel. My dad said the DVD was the best birthday present he ever received. While he watched the footage he shot 50-some years ago - I watched his reactions and, yes, that was priceless! Joe does it right!

I had some 8mm film that I wanted converted into DVD's. The film contained footage of my children, friends and important events. I felt from the beginning I could trust Mr. Buerger to handle our family memories with care. He thoroughly explained the transfer process to me and answered all of my questions in a considerate manner. When we picked up our DVD's, they were accompanied by a popcorn container and some movie theatre candy--what a nice touch! Mr. Buerger was courteous, prompt and professional--I would highly recommend his services.

- Abbey Ferenzi from Lockport, IL

02/06/2010 Home Movie Transfer

Joe did a fantastic job for me transferring a bunch of old 8mm film that my parents took. He was extremely flexible and made the transfers exactly as I had asked (onto a portable hard drive as avi files). He even took the time ot label everything so I can associate computer files with film reels. And the quality of the transfer is fantastic also - great lighting and color. I recommend Joe very highly.

- Mike from Aurora

02/01/2010 Home Movie Transfer

I have two video tapes that I have never viewed, and I have been carrying them around since 1983. The videos were recorded using BetaMax technology; consequently, I have never viewed the video tapes. I called Mr. Joe Buerger at Hoome Video Services in Bolingbrook, IL. I asked him if he could convert these video tapes into DVDs. He did an outstanding job! I was able to fianlly see the videos from 23 years earlier. It was a wonderful experience that I can now enjoy anytime I choose.

We had old movies that had been transferred to tapes many years ago ... and now wanted them put on dvd's to preserve them ... and all in time for a family reunion that was only days away ! Joe did a GREAT job ... so very accommodating in getting everything done ... even added music to the "silent films" . Our family reunion was a huge success because of it ... Joe is friendly, professional, accommodating, and reasonable . I can't wait to go through the rest of our archives to see what else I can find for him to do .

I had a great experience working with Joe. He helped me put together a 30th birthday DVD for my boyfriend. He responded promptly to all my questions and concerns. Joe was very professional the entire time and always kept me updated on the progress. The finished product was so fantastic, it was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Joe has a natural talent for this, the DVD brought tears and laughter to my loved one, his family and mine. You will not be dissapointed in Joe's services, I will certainly be a repeat customer! -Dana, Glen Ellyn, IL

Home Video Studio

DVDs have been the state-of-the-art for more than ten years in the video and home movie transfer industry. In fact, Home Video Studio still transfers video to DVDs for our customers who request that service.

But there's a new kid in town - The DVA - the Home Video Studio - Video in the Cloud. DVA is the latest technology and it is fast becoming the media of choice. These days we most often transfer everyone's old VHS, BetaMAX, 8mm and Mini DV tapes to DVAs rather than DVDs.
