No "mirror boxes " or " wall projection" !!

Unlike most companies who offer this service, we DO NOT project your film onto a screen or through a "mirror box" with a projector, while recording the projected images with a handycam.

Our method explained

We use purpose built film transfer machines which capture the film frames directly from the film strip with a high resolution camera which is electronically syncronised with the film frame rate, while backlit with an LED light, ensuring safe heat free film transport.

We also clean and lubricate your film, if needed, to ensure a smoother and steadier frame progression.

Our trusty workhorse - The TOBIN CINEMA SYSTEMS TVT-8 cine film transfer machine.
