Home Video Studio helps shape, preserve, and enhance videos that chronicle the passage of time and the growth of families. High-quality capturing codecs transpose home movies onto digital formats, bringing outdated Betamax, 8 mm, or Super 8 into the modern age, storing first steps for posterity and adjusting the prices on childhood lemonade stands for inflation. Technicians snip and shape video to one’s whims with production and postproduction assistance on wedding videos or highlight reels for college-sports scholarships. Technicians can also collaborate with patrons to weave a This is Your Life video honoring a parent or grandparent through still photographs, archival footage, and new interviews with loved ones.
Lifetouch Inc. became the world’s largest employee-owned photography company one portrait at a time.

Since his boyhood days in the darkroom, Video Kitchen's president, Carlile Crutcher, has had a passion for photography. This passion evolved into home movies during his tenure in high school, college, and the United States Navy, and eventually culminated in the creation of Video Kitchen in 1992. In two locations, including the brand new store in East Louisville, an artistically and technically skilled staff oversees the preservation of memories with data transfers for all sorts of media and formats. The staff specializes in tape-to-DVD transfers, including familiar formats such as VHS tapes, Hi8 and Digital8 8mm tapes, and MiniDV, as well as specialty formats such as 8mm and 16mm movie film.
Imbued with the gift of cinematic artistry, Video Kitchen's staff also produces video for occasions such as business meetings, recitals, and sporting events. Skillful sound engineers capture all the audio, and editors can splice different scenes together or superimpose a slam-dunking dog into every frame.
Flicko's video- and photo-conversion services protect recorded memories by transferring material from outdated formats onto DVDs and CDs with improved resolution. In addition to once-widespread VHS media, Flicko's can convert VHS-C, and MiniDV while consolidating material from multiple tapes onto the same disk. Custom labels help organize films and photos chronologically or in the order they should be shown to potential romantic partners. Flicko's media services also include video editing, which helps customers complete projects, and CD/DVD duplication to distribute said projects all over the neighborhood.
