This is something you can do yourself at home and would get the same results. Ways you can spot this method of transfer are. Offering to let you have your transfer on a DV Tape. To get your transfer on a DV tape, they have to use a camcorder. Usually caught by plugging in a lead from the sound projector to a camcorder. End result in what appears to be slow motion. This is caused by them slowing down the projector to cut out the flicker from the shutter. Caused by the speed of the shutter and the capture speed of the camcorder. This is where the center of the image on the end result is brighter, but as it gets to the edges of the picture frame is gets darker.
This is simply caused by the lamp in the projector being brightest at the center. There is more on my frame by frame scanning method below. You normally only do this the one time, so don't short change yourself. If you wish to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about any part of the process, or anything at all, please call.

But is shows that there is no flicker etc and that you can great results so long as they are transferred properly. Please don't forget to include your name and address.
The 5 digit telephone number is correct and not an error. Do I get the original films back?
We cannot stress how important it is for you to hang onto your films, just in case. You never know, you may lose the DVD or it may get damaged.
Best thing to do with them to preserve them is to keep them in a cool dark place. Where possible, We do treat the films with a preserver/cleaner. This serves to lubricate the film and stop the process of brittleness. It also makes the film look new again. Simply dusting the film will not get rid of the years of accumulated dust and dirt.There is a website called the8mmforum. You can view articles about the film preservers on there which are written by experts who know what they are talking about. How do you capture the image? We use frame by frame scanning which is by far the best way to capture the images from the film. This means they are flicker free and crystal clear and completely digital. Other company's use the useless method of an old projector with a camcorder at the side of it filming the projected image from the screen. Then there are others which use telecine machines from the 1980's which to be honest, is the same as the projector and camcorder method.
It is still a projector but has a small camera built in which films the image in the gate rather than from on the screen. The problem here is that the cameras are from the eighties and not as good quality as todays camcorders, so you could say that you may even get a better image with the camcorder and projector method if it were not for the flicker problem.
Do you use analogue capturing methods? As stated above, because we use frame by frame scanning, the whole process is digital every step of the way. The quality of the transfer will be exactly as the film is, with no deterioration.
Lots of other companies have "hidden costs" do you? There are no extra hidden costs at all. We do not charge extra for the Menu, Chapters (which have a moving thumbnail from the particular film reel) or the background music.
We do not charge extra if your films have been wound on the reel the wrong way or not rewound at all. We do not charge extra if we need to repair you film, for instance if a splice has come undone. Do you copy protect the completed DVD? No, unlike others we do not copy protect the finished DVD's, as we do not think this is a fair action. At the end of the day, this is your material.
Your DVD to do with as you wish. Copy it a hundred times without loss of quality. If you cannot copy yourself then we can do it for you. Is this a bit of a sideline for you to earn a little extra cash? This is what we do full time.I got my very first cine camera at the age of 8 years. Cine has been my heart and sole since then.
When it comes to cine film I know whats what... And more importantly whats not!There are companies that will try to blind you with all manner of information in the hope that you will trust that they know what they are talking about. Unfortunately, usually they have not got a clue. They will use the reasoning that you do not have a clue either and sadly, a lot of the time they get away with it. Cine film in essence is quite straight forward and simple.
