Founded in 1991, Home Video Studio was started by film industry veteran Robert Hanley. Hanley found a niche for editing, duplication, and other simple but necessary video production services. He used this to create his own home-based studio, which he grew into a franchise offering the same business opportunities to entrepreneurs in the United States and Canada.
