The Art of Transferring
Year's ago people would point their projector at a bed sheet and record their films with a VHS camcorder. The images that played back on their TVs would flicker, often be at the wrong speed and usually were crooked.
The film scanners we use today allow us to capture each frame of the film individually in High Definition. Thus giving us not only the ability to create a Hi-Def Blu-ray of your film, but actually capture every last grain of each frame, color correct and image enhance your film and in some cases bring out details that were too dark to even see.
But before the film ever touches the scanner we carefully inspect it. Film can become brittle when poorly stored. Splices that ran through your projector 40 years ago peel away. Sprocket holes that once guided your film may have been torn by a misaligned film path. We clean and lubricate each film and check for bad splices and torn film to be able to make the most pristine copy of your celluloid memories as possible.
