I can't put into words how I feel about the work you do. You took a photo that no one else wanted to touch, because it had soo much water damage and was soo very old and made it come alive!! It was if I could reach out and touch my Mom

I wanted to add, Al has repaired damaged photos, transferred from VHS to DVD, and made them look even better, VHS and and stills that are about 30 years old. The portrait of my parents is 47 years old and sat in poor wet conditions for 16 years! My children and grandchildren will get to see my parents portrait for the first time in years, when they open it as a Christmas gift. We are Blessed with 4 children, 11 grandchildren, last three triplets! Thanks again Al!

I have know Al for 5 years now. I trust him with all my memories and he has never disappointed me. My parents had a portrait done in 1970. When they passed, it was stored in a basement, then a garage. when I went thru things, 16 years later, I found a ton of 8mm film which was from when I was 7, he put it to music and on a DVD and it was beautiful! Then I found the water damaged and color faded portrait. I gave it to Al in grave shape. When he brought it back and unveiled it, I broke down in tears! It was as if my parents were standing in front of me, like I could touch them. If you value your memories and want to preserve them, please go to Al. I would trust him with anything of importance or value to me. Thank you Al.

Today is the one year anniversary of my father's passing. I thank Al that our family has the dvd he prepared for our father's funeral. He was able to put slides, pictures and usb files all together onto one dvd with music. He captured the memories in a beautiful way that all of us will treasure forever. Friends and family are still commented on how nice the dvd was at the funeral. Al worked very hard in just 2 days to make this special to honor my father. Thank you Al!

11/29/2016 Home Movie Transfer

I had some old 16 mm video's I needed to transfer to DVD's. Al did an amazing job. The videos were from the 1940's. They came out very clear and the colors were so vivid. I would recommend Al's Home Video Studio to friends and family. He was extremely patient and was very careful with the old films. I have more films to transfer and will definitely go to Home Video Studio again!

12/26/2014 Video to DVD

Had a great experience with Al. Our wedding video VHS tapes had been damaged for a number of years. Al was able to repair the tapes and move them to DVD. He did it very quickly and went out of his way to get everything back in time to make it a gift by our anniversary. Our family has already enjoyed watching the new DVD's - Al not only transferred them to DVD but created an index which allowed us to move around through the DVDs. I would definitely use Al again!!

Al to the rescue! My 25 year old high school VHS tapes were impacted by the August flood. When they were recovered from the water & sewage, I immediately submerged them in clean water and left them there until I was able to get them to Al to retrieve and copy to DVD. Within a week, Al was able to provide me with DVDs each all 7 tapes! My kids loved to watch my old gymnastics tapes, etc. Al's attention to detail, sense of urgency and overall good business practices is top notch. Use him for ALL your video needs!

- Karen from Beverly Hills

Al is a Godsend. My basement flooded and my high school graduation video from 20 years ago was soaked. He told me to keep it in water and days later he had recovered it on DVD. I was able to watch it with my 5 year was important because I was the valedictorian. He's touched my life and family forever!

We have gone to Al several times over the years to have home super 8 movies and slides put on DVDs or matter what job we have given him the end products have been great. It is difficult to leave our treasured memories with someone but we are always confident that Al will take good care of our items. Some of our movies belonged to my Dad and were over 50 years old. He handled them with care and presented us with DVDs of family gatherings that we haven't seen in years. He has always made us extra copies that we can share with other family members.

- Anne Berglund from New Baltimore

12/10/2013 Video to DVD

I had a precious VHS video of our son in an important baseball game . The VHS became damaged and we were heartbroken as this was the only copy we had. I found Mr. Ornelas on line. He was kind, quick, inexpensive, and did a great job! Our video is now on DVD, it was repaired wonderfully. We recommend Mr. Ornelas highly - rarely do we meet someone who takes such care to do a great job. GRATEFUL for this!! Thank you!!!

I have entrusted Al with the treasures of our family, all of our 8mm film from our childhood and my parents early years. We so pleased that I went back for more. Al was able to edit and reproduce the DVD for other family members who are also so pleased with the quality of his work, they are now bringing all of ther film treasures to Al. I have had the opportunity to view other peoples work and I can say that Al Ornelas's work if far superior to anything I have seen before. I can honestly say that the DVD quality ois better than the actual film itself. Not only is Al's work professionally and impeccably well done, but is is a true professional. He really knows how to treat customers and make them feel welcomed and well-attended. He is nice, kind and affable. Since taking my familaya film treasures to him, I have had a multitute of various types of video work and have been highly pleasae with everything he has done. I highly recommend everyone stop wasting time going anywhere else and go straight to Al Ornelas for any and all Video needs.

Hello, Al! Thank you so much for our amazing video. As anticipated, my Mom cried at the sight of her sisters wedding.

06/03/2011 Home Movie Transfer

My Dad died in 1972 and I had very little to remember him by, so when I found two 16mm reels marked with his handwriting I knew I had to find a way to view and preserve them. From the moment I met him, I knew Al was the right one for the job. Transferring the images to DVD, Al not only created a masterpiece of restoration. He took a personal interest, and realized how important these memories were to me and my family. If you are looking for superior craftsmanship, caring and honesty I don't think you could find anyone better.

- Susan Fullar from Detroit

10/28/2010 Video Production

I videotaped 43 short clips of the nursing staff on my unit. I gave the video clips and music to Al and he turned it into a masterpiece!! Everyone on my unit loves our video. It has been shown to the senior management at my hospital and the video is also being placed on our employee intranet. So now every Oakwood Hospital employee will be able to see it. Al is a supreme professional and he really cares and loves the work he does. I will be recommending him to everyone!

Al repaired my damaged digital-8 tape and had it working like new. He understood the value of my family memories and even made an archive copy just in case the tape failed. Al truly exceeded my expectations. He is professional, competent and offers an incredible level of service. And he's a very nice guy!

05/08/2010 Duplications

I sent Mr. Ornelas a faded ripped picture from the 1920's era. I asked him to repair the photo which was truly in very bad shape. He did the work in an extremely timely manner. The original was so bad that it is beyond repair although Mr. Ornleas did a very credible job in restoring it to a much better condition and shape than it was before he received it. I was extremely satisfied with his work and hope you will consider him for your video needs as he does very good work.
