How We Transfer Your Films
Your film transfer is mastered by a trained technician who invests careful attention to detail. We do not use film projectors and video cameras to transfer your 8 mm films.
We use a direct transfer process using a telecine and MAC computers. Literally every inch of film is monitored and tweaked to perfection as dark film areas are made brighter, and over exposed sections are made darker. We enhance color and contrast. Blank areas are electronically edited out.
Repairs and Splices
When transferring your movies, our film transfer lab technicians at Tommy Productions, Video Transfer Company takes every precaution to handle your precious films as delicately as possible. In the event your old film splices come apart, we will make repairs. (see our pricing guide as extra charges may apply).
You can add titles such as: “The Smith Family, 1955 – 1978” or “Our Family Through Our Years — We Love You”
All films pass through our specialized cleaning solution to remove foreign objects like dust specks, lint and mildew. The cleaning process enhances the clarity of your transfer and makes your memories more enjoyable to watch.
Music or Prerecorded Sound
You can have music added to your order. If there was natural sound recorded on your film, (super 8 mm only) we can transfer the sound as well.
