Most movie film comes from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, but we’ve transferred some that is much older. It’s amazing how well most movie film has held up over the years. The wonderful images of yesteryear are captured on those tiny frames of film. However movie film does degrade over time and the longer you wait, the better the chance your movie film will deteriorate past the point where it can be properly transferred. Here are two quick tests: If your movie film has a strong ammonia smell or if the film is wound in waves on the reel, there may be a problem and you need to contact us before sending your film.
We transfer 8mm (always silent), super 8 (silent or sound) and 16mm (silent or optical sound). We can put multiple reels of film on one DVD. About 1,200 feet of 8mm or super 8 or 2,400 feet of 16mm film will fit on one DVD. You are not charged by the DVD, but rather by the number of reels and the diameter of the film on each reel (not all reels are full). If you have more than 10 reels, please call us for quantity discounts.
