“The goal isn’t to live forever. The goal is to create something that will.” – Carlos A. Navarro
Some quote, huh? And one that makes us glad to be in the business of preserving memories and helping you create your legacy! That’s why we’re excited to let you know that October 18th is Home Movie Day worldwide and we’re celebrating all month long. Come in and celebrate your legacy with us by bringing in your 8mm, Super8, and/or 16mm film and having it transferred to Platinum Archival DVD!
Much of your family’s story was "written" through the camera lens of the parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, and children who took the time to document their life and times with a home movie camera during the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s. Their hope was that these images would last for generations – and they can. Our mission is to preserve these memories – and we do it with the best technicians and the best equipment around!
The coming Holiday season is a great reason to take advantage of all the video services we have to offer - and it’s coming quickly. October kicks off our busiest time for Home Movie Transfer, and the Holiday season, like no other, is high time to finally get that 8mm, Super8 or 16mm film onto a medium that's long lasting and convenient. Have you been putting this off? We want to hear from you soon. Imagine watching your precious memories together. Everyone from great grandparents to children will enjoy them!
As your Film Transfer experts we get a lot of questions. Here are a few you may have. If you have any more call us:
My film is very old. Will it transfer?
We make every effort to transfer your film no matter what condition it’s in and we are rarely stumped. We have transferred movies dating as far back as 1916 and usually have no problem with old film.
Will my old 8mm, Super8 or 16mm film look good?
We love home movies and we are on a mission to make sure yours is the best it can be! That's why we've invested in the best film transfer equipment available. We use a completely digital process using the highest quality capture of your film. Another great feature of our system is its sprocketless transport and laser frame alignment. That means no jerky film movement because of damaged sprocket holes. It means you see 100% of the frame even if the film has shrunk.
I remember my parents recorded sound on some of these reels. Will that transfer too?
If there is sound on your reels it will be transferred. What a joy it is to not only see the past but to hear it as well.
What about music or sound on film?
If you like, and most customers do, we include (at no extra charge) background music. It is our own copyrighted score of music, specifically composed for home movie transfers. No music will be recorded in places where you already have sound on film.
Can you make computer files as well as DVDs?
Yes. We can make computer files for PC or Mac.
I want my children and grandchildren to know who some of the people are in my movies. How can I do that?
We can put titles anywhere on your captured film to help you identify where it was taken and who was in the scene.
Can you make copies?
Yes! In fact most our customers make copies to share with relatives and friends. That’s most the fun of get your movies transferred.
I have video tapes starting from the 80’s as well. Can you do those?
Yes, we are a full service video services business and provide the best in VHS, VHS-C, 8mm, and mini DV transfer. In fact we can most likely transfer any tape format you have!
Don't delay! October is Home Movie Month at Home Video Studio for a reason. Soon the Holiday rush will be upon us. Call us today!
