The celebration of Christmas is typically marked by memories of the past. Our parents would often capture all these experiences and memories on cine film. When we transfer these family films filled with precious family stories to digital formats we remember much loved members of the family that came before us.
We can copy your family films from 8mm, Super 8, 9.5mm and 16mm films. Your family films are precious to your family, and we promise to treat them with the care and diligence they deserve.
Film transfers are carried out on a film scanner that copies every frame of your movie in High Definition to achieve the highest quality. Over 1000 frames per minute of the film.
Your films are available to download from our file servers. We can also copy your films to high-quality Samsung USB drives, stored in our unique vintage film canisters for safekeeping or as gifts.
Use our online ordering service to tell us what you would like to have preserved as digital copies.

Kilmister the film buff should have been 23yrs old. The card game was New Market, still played today.
A 66 Year old film and the colours are just stunning after all these years.

f anyone has old cine films stored away, but not the means to view them, well I can honestly recommend Andrew at 8mm2digital to bring your old memories “back to life”. if you do have old cine films just boxed away in a cupboard or the garage, get them off to Andrew and enjoy recalling your old memories.

Sent my dad's cine film from 1966 and had no idea what would be on it. My children loved being able to see me with my brother and sister when we were children.
Andrew was very helpful and the service was very professional and very quick. I will be sending some more films to be transferred. Lesley Goss
Fantastic service - great support given from ordering through to delivery.

If you have films that are already scanned into a digital format, we can make a big difference to the final image by using a combination of powerful video editing solutions designed to reduce digital noise, flicker and other imperfections.
Every month we release a few more films from our collection from reels of film that we have acquired at auctions or purchased online. These are so often wonderful insights into a past age that were captured by ordinary people, on amateur cine cameras, sometimes 80 years ago. Please feel welcome to join us on this adventure into the past.
We enjoy old silent films, Buster Keaton, Walter Forde, Roscoe Arbuckle, Lloyd Hamilton, and each month we scan and restore films we come across in car boot sales and auctions. These discarded little reels of film are preserved for your enjoyment, and you are welcome to see them here.
