Film Transfer - 8mm - Super 8 - 16mm:
Let us help you bring your memories back to life to easily enjoy and share with your family and friends! We have over 30 years of experience in transferring film and will work with you to create the finished product that's right for you. Feel free to call, e-mail, or make an appointment to bring your film in for a free written estimate. We will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
We do all work in our facility. Your film never leaves the building and is always returned to you, in better shape than when you bring it in. We recommended that you keep and continue to care for your original films by storing them in a cool and dry location, off the floor. We encourage everyone to pass down any materials such as film, video, photos and slides to your next of kin to continue the preservation of your family history. Believe it or not, film is one of the best formats! It's the only media that has been proven to last over 100 years if stored properly. However, it's not always easy to watch, so that's where we come in to help:
Our transfer process starts with a full inspection of your film. We will repair & splice broken spots as needed, and consolidate the film on larger reels if not already spliced together. We then clean the film using a special film cleaner that also polishes & waxes the film to further extend it's life. This also ensures a smooth, clear & sharp transfer. The film is digitized (without projecting) straight into our editing software, continuously monitoring to ensure that color & brightness are as consistent as possible throughout the film.
Once your transfer is complete, any unexposed/blank footage is edited out. We can output the content to any format, consumer or broadcast quality: fully authored DVD (including menu, chapter markers, and non-copywritten music if you wish), MiniDV, BetaSP, DigiBeta, or to a digital hard drive with files for each reel. These files can be used to view on your computer and mobile devices, to do your own editing, or just to further archive.
We provide additional in-house editing services to further customize your project, with hardly any limits! After your film is imported, simply make an appointment, where you'll sit with our friendly staff in a comfortable environment as we go through your film on the computer. You may want to add titles at the beginning of your reels, or subtitle over the film to identify family members or places. We can also edit out unwanted scenes, and/or arrange them so they are in chronological order.
You may also wish to add narration, still photos, slides, or other media formats, or color correct film that has shifted from chemical breakdown over time. For more complex projects such as this, we are fully prepared to assist you with our professional editing facilities to suit any of your advanced needs.
We take the utmost care in handling your family's history and take great pride and interest in creating your home movie memories.
Pricing is based on how many feet of film you have. Call or make an appointment to bring in your film and get a free estimate.
