Those old eight and sixteen millimeter movies become brittle and inflexible due to old age and should not be put in a typical movie projector. To do so would cause the film to either break or to get caught in the movie projector cogs and fold like an accordion. Most film labs project the old movies onto a rear projection screen and use a digital camera to record the projected image. This process creates hot spots, flickers and vignetting on the finished product. We take the extra time to first clean the film (by hand if necessary), then we digitize each frame (each second of a movie has 30 frames) using a very expensive Telecine digital film recorder which uses LED bulbs to evenly illuminate each frame from corner to corner. The digital duplication process uses Sony Broadcast quality cameras allowing us to lighten, darken and often color correct faded 8mm, Super 8mm and 16mm film. The digital files are then converted to a DVD file format using patented "Memory3" Technology which is the highest quality available in the industry. The last thing we do is add copy free music to your old movies to give them more interest when viewing.

Many of our clients want to know if they can edit their own DVDs once they are made. The answer is two fold! Like a rented movie you can not edit a DVD once it is created. However, for many of our clients we digitize their old 8 mm and 16mm movies to a "movie format" on a computer hard drive. With this process our clients can add titles, delete bad footage and add movie-like transitions to their home movies. Once completed these movies can be easily converted to the "DVD format" to be enjoyed on a TV or PC.
