Using cutting-edge 2K frame by frame capture!
This insures capturing the finest detail of your films!
Transfers with no damage to your film!
No heat, no advance claw, no gate to hurt your films!
Then we edit your footage
(taking out the unwatchable, add cross dissolves,
correct speed errors, Stabilize and add titles and music)
NOTE-- See the video to the right to understand how our special stabilization
process will vastly improve your viewing experience!
Our transfer system, the 2K RetroScan Universal was designed specifically at the request of the Academy of Motion Picture Film Archives in Hollywood.
Dealing with vintage film, they required a system with no sprockets, no claw and no image area contact.
After working with the Universal, here is what the Academy had to say:
"We're very happy with the Universal Film scanner.... it transports our often fragile archival film gently, with zero contact. We love the unit."
What about titles and music?
Our music, which is included in the project cost, comes from our extensive library of royalty free music.
We include two computer constructed titles. All you need to do is print what you would like to see on a piece of paper and we will do the rest. A title page may consist of up to eight lines, and we suggest that it is less than twenty characters across.
What if we need our film edited?
We will convert your film to a DVD- you select the sections and order, we do the rest!
OR-- simply come in and tell us what you want- we can edit for you directly- we utilize all real time editing!
