Our 8mm film transfer to DVD process includes (when necessary): cleaning, lubricating and putting the film on 400 foot reels, before being transferred to DVD. This cleaning removes brittleness, dirt and dust from old films. Your 8mm reels can be electronically adjusted to your film's color and clarity, so faded or discolored film looks more natural.

The 8mm film transfer process also includes splicing and cleaning the film (when necessary).  We remove any under/over exposed film, or black or white parts of the 8mm film, so you don't have wasted footage.

We then mount the reels on our special Elmo 8mm/Super8mm projectors. These modified projectors produce a non-flicker image, by using a multi-face optical glass prism which synchronizes standard 18 or 24 frames per second movie film speed, to 30 frames per second video. This process eliminates the shutter bar or flutter-effect associated with using a video camera to record the film projection. The image from the Elmo projector is focused directly on the lens of our High Definition video camera, using a special aerial imaging system.

You will be amazed by the quality of some of the older 8mm films, once restored. You are now able to use DVD technology in your favor.   A DVD can hold up to two hours of high-quality video.  Plus, there will be no more changing reels to try to find what event you are looking for. You will have your own chapters and optional menus, for easy access to any part of the film.

Now is the time to have this service done, so you will be able to play your movies on either computer or DVD and watch your long-ago relatives, once again.  There's no reason to let those old family films continue to collect dust.
