Professional Film Transfer

Our company Is unique in that we will transfer your movie film to high definition images that can be converted to any digital format. We use only professional high-definition film transfer machines and not the domestic scanners that most companies use, although you can hire one from us if you would like to have a go and do converrt the films yourself.

Our company converts old movies for television, archives, museums and of course private users.  Our machines will also convert audio, remove scratches and enhance your images. In fact, your old movies wiil probably look even better than when you first saw them.

Restoration Services

It is very common today to find that film is in poor condition and that situation is getting worse.  Poor storage, projector damage, and chemical reactions within film itself have made restoration a major headache. We will do our very best to restore film that we are given, but only to the digital stage. We cannot recover damaged celluloid material.

How much does it cost?

Professional film transfer is not cheap, but it is what you need if you are to preserve your films for future generations. We will price-up your film and provide a sample absolutely free of charge and before you make any commitment. However, if you are looking for a cheaper option I would suggest you hire a basic home movie scanner from us and transfer your films in the privacy of your own home.

What is the best format to save my films?

Most clients choose a USB stick to save a digital file, as this is cheap and convenient. However, you should only use a USB for transportation as these have a high failure rate. A DVD is still a great way to save your movies, but a hard drive is the best choice. Storing your memories as a permenant feature on you computer is not a good idea.

How long does it take ?

Our normal turnaround time is seven working days, but if your project is urgent we do have the capacity to cope with most urgencies.

The cheapest option - Hire A Scanner


If you are a DIY person you like to have a go at transferring your home movies yourself. If so, I would recommend you hire one of our domestic film scanners. The cost is very low - $50.00 per day or $100.00 per weekend, Friday till Monday. They are very easy to use and will convert both Super and Standard 8mm film to a digital format. Please contact us if you require a booking or further information:
