Robert Hanley, a Producer/Director/Editor and company president, has over 25 years in the film and video business, having produced everything from National TV spots to corporate films and video. Hanley spent the 1980s honing his production and editing skills and learning his craft, shooting both video and 16mm & 35mm film.

By 1991, after completing an independent feature film, Hanley did the unthinkable and started over. "I actually reinvented myself and the video business that we ran," Hanley explains. "I was tired of the rat-race; I decided to stay at home with my family and focus on making money and having fun."

Hanley started making lots of money immediately and focused on building his video services business. "We started out with only two profit centers – home movie transfer and video duplication. Today we have 21, including our fastest growing areas: DVD transfer and DVD duplication," says Hanley.

In 1998 after netting over six figures from his small spare bedroom studio in one year, Hanley decided to form Home Video Studio, Inc. and help others repeat his success.
