Your treasured family cine films can now be transferred digitally to DVD so you can watch them on your TV or PC.
Many of us have collections of Super 8 and Standard 8 cine films we are unable to watch. Few people these days own a cine projector and for those who do it can be a time consuming chore to get it up and running. Once we have copied and digitally transferred your precious 8mm cine films you can watch them anywhere and at any time. You can share your family memories with all your relatives here and around the world.
The digital transfer process starts with examination of your film for bad splices. When cine film gets old joints can dry out and become brittle. If problems are found the splices are repaired and renewed so that the movie will play smoothly during the copying process. The film is then cleaned and lubricated with special chemicals. Cine film can become very dry after years of storage and often there is a build up of dust. Much of the dust is removed during this process. The film is then copied in HD quality. Traditional cine projectors use light bulbs which get very hot, this means there is always a danger of damage to the film. We use the latest cool running LED's so the film is kept safe during the transfer process. Once the copying process is complete the digital files are corrected using the latest computer imaging software. The film is colour corrected where needed and any remaining dust speckles are minimised. The corrected video files are then edited into the final movie and output to a DVD.
We have often been asked by our photograph restoration and portrait customers if we can convert cine film to DVD. Via popular demand we have now made this service available. This service is for customers who can personally bring their films into our studio. Please do not post films to us without first contacting us.
