REEL-TO-REEL TRANSFER

Your home movie film memories get new life as viewable digital files. Those files can be played on TVs, computers, tablets and phones. Plus they can easily be shared with family members or friends. 

Each movie reel is first inspected, repaired, and then cleaned in preparation for the transfer process. Proper handling of the reels is a very important first step, as dated film become brittle or easily tangle in an old player. Our experienced technicians are trained to properly handle vintage movie film.

ITALIAN FAMILY HERITAGE

“My family is originally from Italy and my relatives came to the United States in the early 1900’s. My father inherited some old 16mm family movies, but of course we had no way to watch them, so we had them digitized. We’re Italian so obviously most of this footage includes lots of eating, drinking, dancing and fun.”

Stacy G.
(4th Generation Italian American)

Who needs a copy?

Once your materials are digitized, making duplicate copies is quite easy and affordable.

Before you embark on your project, consider who else would like a set of the files; parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins, your children, etc.  It’s far too complicated to pass the same DVD or thumb drive around to family members.
