We had old 8mm reels from my grandmother transferred into digital and so happy we did this long overdue project. Showed them all at a recent family reunion and were laughing and crying at the same time and so much fun to see the good ol" times growing up. Thank you Chris and Home Video Studio for an excellent job done! Highly recommend your company to anyone wanting to preserve memories. Thank you!

Our family is extremely happy with the transfer of videos to digital. We are experiencing many changes in our lives and being able to watch videos we have not been able to for years, was a very fun family event! We laughed, we cried, we reminisced. We were able to share with my grandchildren their parents when they were little. Priceless. THANK YOU so much for all you have done for us. These memories are precious and gratefully received. The value in being able to do this, memorable and forever legendary. Your service is greatly appreciated. Shelly Jean

We brought in our mom's childhood 8mm film reels that she hadn't seen for many decades. Home Video Studio transferred them to digital files for us and she was, once again, able to see many long lost loved ones. It was an amazing gift and we thank you so much for the excellent quality of her recovered memories.

I haven’t seen my wedding video in 20 years, but thanks to the team at home video studio we got to watch it again the other night. Also had some old high school football footage and a few vacations transferred over. They did an amazing job and it’s so much fun reliving all of those memories! Thank you!

Thank you for the fantastic job transferring all of my family’s video tapes and slides to a format that will allow us to enjoy those memories in the future.

Thanks so much for the great work! What a memory trip to find five old VHS tapes and have them brought to life again in a format we could play. Your work was quality and on time with an emphasis on customer service. We were especially appreciative of the nice touch of having them in gift bags. We'll be back, thanks again!

I can't speak highly enough about the professionalism and friendliness I experienced in doing business with Chris and Home Video Studio. The videos and pictures he transferred turned out really great. I now have my important physical memories stored in a way that will never deteriorate or become obsolete. Thank you, Chris and Home Video Studio!!

01/13/2021 Video to DVD

Over a year ago you converted some home movies to DVDs for me and I just wanted to let you know how much my family and relatives enjoyed them. My aunt, who is 89, was so excited to watch and explain to her kids some of the “goings on” in the movies. She commented that it was such a blessing to relive some of the old times. Some of my cousins were very appreciative that we gave them copies as well. Hope you and your family are doing as well as can be expected in these crazy times. Take care and thanks again very much.

05/06/2020 DVA - Digital Video Archive

Wanting to preserve some historic video created in the 1960s and early 1970s, Home Video Studio did an outstanding job taking the old 16mm film that had been stored in a cardboard box in the corner of the basement, digitizing and restoring the color to the best it could be. A special thanks for the excellent and rapid service, and the above the call of duty help in retrieving from your archives one that we seemed to have lost. That video is now part of an online video series - Rapala Movie Night - on Rapala Instagram TV. Thanks Chris for making it all possible.

- Robert Bussey from Minnetonka

12/18/2019 Home Movie Transfer

You could not place your cherished memories in better hands. Chris and Michelle are incredibly professional. They have transferred my 16mm films, and my super 8's. Their attention to the tiniest of details, and their genuine concern for my memories was greatly appreciated and will be for years to come.

- CATHY PETERS from excelsior

11/26/2019 Audio Tape Transfer

I give Chris and his team 5 Stars for their work, fees and professionalism! I highly recommend spending the money to transfer your old video tapes to a small flash drive per Chris’ suggestion. My family and I have really enjoyed watching the old videos especially of the deceased. Theses videos are priceless! Thank you Chris for all your help preserving our memories ??

- Heather Rectenwal from Minneapolis

10/21/2019 Home Movie Transfer

Happy tears and fun memories! I found a few old tapes of family movies that I brought to Chris to transfer. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of my dad who passed twenty years ago. Chris took such care with my memories and returned them to me quickly - I believe he was just as excited for me to see what he’d found as I was! Chris really understands how precious these memories are. Thank you Chris!

- Amy Blaubach from Bloomington

04/23/2019 Home Movie Transfer

Thank you so much for saving our pictures, slides and voice recordings! Our family was thrilled to see our old slides again and hear the voices we’ve missed for years. Wonderful customer service too. We’ll be back!

- Annie Strange from Bloomington

04/12/2019 35mm slide transfer

You've given us the gift of being reminded of our family history with these digital copies. It just keeps rippling out as each one takes a moment (or hours) to reflect. Swimming with memories! I wonder what kind of dreams I'll have tonight; before and after I finally get to sleep! Let's see, 1000 words per each picture. Thank you again and may everything you set your hands to do prosper.

06/18/2018 Photo Videos

I picked up the video that you did for us (for my son’s wedding) on Friday. I brought it home and had to run some errands right away. I came back, and my wife was crying because she just viewed the video. She ran it again for me, and the tears started coming again. This video turned out so much better than we ever anticipated! Thank you so much for the work that you put into this. I am sure that Carrie (my wife) will still be crying when she looks at it at the wedding and years down the road.

Chris and Michelle are professional, timely, and extremely adept at handling all things video. I had old family movie tapes transferred to DVD's and a flash drive. The quality is excellent and I could not be more pleased. I highly recommend thier services.

08/15/2017 Video to DVD

My experience working with Chris and the Home Video Studio was amazing. We were on a short time frame to put to put together video clips for my daughter who was competing at Miss USA. Chris worked diligently with me to make sure this came together and was done professionally. I also had him compile all of my home tapes to DVD as well and trust me it took a lot of organizing and the final result was the best I could have asked for. Wonderful, caring people with great attention to detail!!

- Diane Jacobs from Maple Grove

04/30/2017 Home Movie Transfer

Just got done watching the Film to DVD transfer you did for me, and I couldn't be more impressed! The picture and audio quality is fabulous! better than I could've imagined. I was concerned that the first few feet of the film wouldn't be very good due to the existing damage, but it looks fantastic! Thank you again for helping preserve this one-of-a-kind historical, industrial 16mm film!

02/17/2017 Home Movie Transfer

I called Chris to ask if he could convert my super8 films from the 1970's and 1980's to DVD format and he said that was one of his company's specialties. I told him that I also had a VHS tape that was very dark and almost unwatchable that had been converted in the 1990's from 16mm film and asked if he could convert it to DVD so it would be better and he said any DVD he produced would not be much better than the VHS tape. Luckily, I still had the 16mm film and I brought it to him with my super 8 films for conversion. Wow! The DVD he produced from my 16mm film from the 1940's and 1950's was truly amazing! It was almost as if it was filmed recently. I could recognize the people and places and the color was life-like, not all red like the VHS from the 1990's conversion. The DVD of the super8 films was also great! I also asked Chris to make me digital copies of my films. When I have time, I plan to make some clips from them using Movie Maker. It is nice to have both DVD and digital copies of my family memories. My next project will be to look for all the VHS tapes I made years ago so I can bring them to Chris for conversion to DVD and digital format.

06/16/2016 Video to DVD

Chris was able to accommodate our schedule and completed the project on the promised date. He made a DVD on the first visit that I could review and test and then completed the balance of the order in a timely manner. We have known Chris and Michelle through our church for a number of years and they are easy to work with. When another project comes up they will be first to be considered and we would highly recommend them.

I really appreciate you going the extra mile to make sure I met my deadline for Miss USA. We couldn't have done it without you!! Beyond the pageant, my family is also now able to enjoy all our old memories together. I will forever cherish these DVD's. Thank you so much - Bridget - Miss Minnesota USA 2016 PS- Now that you've seen my entire childhood, you have to watch Miss USA!!!

03/11/2016 Home Movie Transfer

Suddenly, 2 members of my family passed away, totaling 3 gone from my family of 5. The home movies Dad took in the late 50's and early 60's became precious...oh, so precious. I took the box of films to Chris and Michelle - I had no idea what I had or if they were in shape to convert to DVD. Well, C&M knew! They guided me through the process and produced some tear-filled evenings watching my oh-so-young Mom, Dad, and us kids!! C&M delivered on schedule, quickly responded to my request for a second copy so I could send to my brother for Christmas. Yes, I highly recommend Chris and Michelle for their expertise and warm customer service!

Thank you for your great service and information. Having used other companies in the past, and never getting them converted in a way I can use, I was thrilled with your excellant work. I will definitely use you for future projects.

Michelle & Chris, Thank you for converting my tapes into Windows Movie Maker compatible files. It is so nice to be able to speak to real people for this type of work than sending things into a black hole, with hopes that you might get your originals back and possibly a working digital file. Then sure they come back but the digital file isn’t compatible with what you want to do. I appreciate too that you did the work while I was in town and invested the time to clean it up somewhat. Chris thanks to for explaining how to upload to You Tube. Uploaded my first video last Friday, an Anniversary video for my wife Susan and she watched it this AM in Paris. How fabulous is that. THANKS!

- Dewey from none

04/22/2014 Video to DVD

Chris & Michelle are quite a team. From when I walked in and was greeted, to sitting down and explaining exactly what I wanted, they really did a great job! I really appreciated that they didn't pressure me into anything I didn't need and told me exactly what it would cost. It fit my budget and now I can share this with my whole family!! Thanks for saving my memories!

- Molly Johnson from Edina

Finding Michelle Moen and Home Video Studio was fantastic luck! I was contacting companies from my home in California, trying to find someone who could help us do a fast rush to convert tapes to DVD for my Uncle who lives in Chaska. My Aunt had just passed, and we wanted to play her beautiful music performances at the service. Michelle was so very nice to talk to, during a very difficult time, and offered to work on the weekend to get it done. Then, when my Uncle couldn't make it back to pick it up, he was surprised and deeply grateful when Michelle delivered the tapes herself! The tapes are great! Ms. Moen's extraordinary kindness and professionalism are a rare gift, and so we give the highest recommendation to this company!

- Clare Henjum from California

06/09/2013 Home Movie Transfer

For a number of years I have been searching for a company that could make a DVD of some old special 8mm movies, 1950 vintage, that would be as clear and bright as they were when I used to run them on my projector. Everybody I went to produced washed out fuzzy DVDs. It was depressing looking at them. The film was in good condition so I new it wasn't the fault of the film. Then I heard of Home Video Studio. The DVDs they did for me were as good or better than the actual movies. It was enjoyable watching them. They were superb! I have more movies to put on DVDs and they will get all my business from now on.

- Warren Kelly from Edina

06/08/2013 Home Movie Transfer

I highly recommend Home Video Studio for their home video transfer to DVD services. I needed to get years of VHS video tapes of my children converted to DVD. Chris and Michelle did an excellent job and produced a very professional looking DVD set for me.

- Dave Roesler from Bloomington

05/16/2013 Home Movie Transfer

I had been talking with my dad for a year about getting my Grandparent's movies put on DVD. He said he already had a VHS of them and was in no hurry. I saw the quality of the VHS and knew who could do a better job. My dad and I tried to watch the films and put them in chronological order but had a hard time making out faces, so it was difficult. He had over 1500 feet of film. After I picked up the DVDs, I went home and started watching them right away. I knew it would be better than what my dad had, but the quality astounded me! The movies had color and faces again. I got to see relatives that I have never met, as well as see what my grandparents were like in their younger years. It was absolutely fantastic! My aunt also had some of my other grandfather's movies transferred and gave them as a gift to her siblings. Everyone loves it. I have VHS tapes in my basement that need transferring in the near future and I know just who to take them to. Fabulous quality, fabulous pricing, fabulous service! Thanks so much Chris and Michelle!

12/20/2012 Home Movie Transfer

I am extremely pleased with your transfer of all of my 8mm movies that my father took from 1936 - the 1950's. You must have had to really work to make some of them even appear! They encompass my life since my birth! 1939! Plus so many of my and my families daily activities on the lake & in school. It's amazing for me to see now and to see my mother & father as they were when they were young! What a gift! You did an amazing job with all of these!

- Judy Jaskowiak from Bloomington

09/17/2012 Home Movie Transfer

Chris and Michelle Moen completely came to my rescue ! I had over 28 vhs and 8mm tapes that I obviously had not watched in years. The time had come when I wanted to watch all these great memorable moments, however they all had to be converted before I could even begin to view them. I did quite a bit of research on various companies that deal with home video transfer and Home Video Studio came shining through. Not only are their prices really competitive, they are also very timely in the turn around of your projects and the reproduction was awesome quality. They just seem to add that special "personal touch" any time I spoke with them and they just seemed very client oriented. When I received my dvds back, I sat down to watch them immediately and determined that utilizing Home Video Studio was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They do a GREAT job and I highly recommend them to any and all of my friends ! You won't go wrong with Chris and Michelle !! Give them a try, you'll be so thankful you did !

07/05/2012 Home Movie Transfer

We transferred several reels of 8MM tapes... they were 50+ years old and brittle, but the videos turned out great! Editing the resulting footage digitally, I could tell a big difference in the quality we got vs. the quality we would have gotten by using another company with a less sophisticated process. I was even able to pull off a frame of the video and print a 5x7 of that frame because it was so clear! Chris and Michelle were very easy to work with, and patient with our many calls and questions. Thanks much, Chris and Michelle, for helping to digitize and preserve our family memories!

- Kara from Eden Prairie

05/15/2012 Home Movie Transfer

I just picked up my grocery bag full of tapes today that Chris and Michelle transferred to DVD. I am playing one right now and am so happy to see our family memories come back to life. I am currently watching my now 19-year-old daughter play in her first snowfall when she was 1 1/2 years old. I couldn't be happier. Chris and Michelle are wonderful. Their work is superb and they are genuine in making one feel that the tapes they take into their care are as precious to them as they are to you. I plan on taking my late father's gazillion slides to Michelle and Chris as well so my family can enjoy them again. The stuff that's hidden away in boxes is now like finding a buried treasure.
