It is very common today to find that film is in poor condition and the situationis getting worse. Poor storage, projector damage, and just the chemical reactions within the film itself have made the restoration a major headache. We will do our very best to restore most 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, 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. 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. Call Free - 0800 555230
