FILM TRANSFERS

8mm • Super 8 • 16mm

NEW FOR 2020! We now use the same claw-free Retroscan scanner used by the Academy Film Archive in Hollywood, yet our prices beat lower quality transfers! We can scan 8mm, Super 8, and 16mm, with or without audio.

We are happy to tell you exactly how we import films, and why our process is better. So much better, in fact, that we recommend re-importing films you converted previously to VHS or DVD (see Frame Rate and Other Considerations below).

OUR PROCESS: First, the film is wet cleaned, we remove old leader which may have shrunk, add new leader, and transfer to new reels if necessary. Then, each frame of film is captured in progressive scan HD using a special MovieStuff Retroscan claw-free scanner, which is safe even for brittle or damaged film, including film with bad sprockets. We do not use mirrors, telecine, projector, or shoot off the screen with a consumer camcorder, as most of our competitors still do.
