What goods or services do you provide? We offer our customers the opportunity to save all of their valued memories onto DVDs. This includes older media like VHS, Hi8 and slides, to name a few. We can do simple transfers, edit and connect clips together from different sources, or create your own custom DVD with menus and multiple clips. We also do work for businesses, creating promotional and training DVDs.
What’s new or exciting at your place? Our business is new, so we are excited to create meaningful projects for people whether they are work-related or personal. It is an awesome feeling of satisfaction when a project is done and we hand the customer the finished DVD.
What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? We are a small, family-run business that focuses on the customer first. With low overhead, we have the ability to produce DVDs at very reasonable prices compared to bigger companies. But, most importantly, we have the time to meet with our clients and help them choose what product will work best for them.
What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you? We believe that the customer comes first, and that their project is of the utmost importance. Our primary goal is to help them create a project that will last forever, and is on media that is easily stored and viewed. Our clients can expect that we value them and their time.
Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: Lauren and Mark are the parents of a 16-month-old daughter. Lauren grew up south of Denver, went to the University of Kansas and came back to the University of Denver for her elementary teaching license. She taught in Douglas County for six years before moving to Eagle County. She has been an elementary educator for 13 years.
Mark grew up in Portland, Maine and moved to Winter Park as an intern through the ski program at the University of Maine, Farmington. In 2003 Mark and Lauren decided to move to the Vail Valley, where Lauren got a teaching job and Mark got a job with Vail Resorts.
Lauren has continued teaching and Mark is now the training manager at Golden Peak. Mark has been creating training DVDs for work for the last five years. He has also done some personal DVDs for friends.
What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? We were doing a transfer from a VHS to a DVD and it was a play. As it was playing on the TV our daughter was enthralled by the music and the animals (people dressed in costumes) that she saw on the TV. She kept pointing to the TV and saying “Oh! Oh! Oh!”
