We are currently retooling and cannot accept client film for transfer at this time. 


Rate Information

Both our professional telecine machines run with a continuous motion and can transfer hundreds of feet of film in one pass without stopping. A computer monitors the exposure and automatically grades the film as it passes through the gate. This is to make sure that the image quality and exposure remains at maximum throughout the transfer. It is therefore, an ideal choice for home movie footage where the exposure and colours are consistently changing. 


When calculating the cost of professional transfer it is important to note that it is based on the time it takes to transfer, rather than the running time. The film must also be set-up and all the levels calibrated prior to transfer.

The most economical way to transfer film is to join as many small reels together so that as much of your film as possible can be transferred in one pass. If you would like us to provide you with an accurate quotation, it will be necessary for us to know the precise details of your collection. By far the simplest way is to either give us a call or send your films for a free evaluation. Should you find that our quote unacceptable, we will return your films at our expense. 

To help our clients we have prepared the following
