The original film could be a bit like this, years of dust, cigarette smoke, chemicals left over from the developing process, and fingerprints. From 1968, an 8mm film of American Special Forces outfit in Vietnam. The RAF engineer who filmed it was recovering a British aircraft from a remote airstrip in South East Vietnam.
We first clean your film and lubricate the surface with specialised film cleaning liquid to make it less brittle. Our scanners can capture what the camera saw, which is often a wider image than the projector would allow you to see. We then work on your film in post-production to colour correct the film where possible and digitally clean up the image. We can also add a soundtrack to the film if needed.
While working on a film today, I realised that many of my clients receive their films back and enjoy them, but don't realise the difference between the original film that they sent in to be copied, and the one they watch. Exposure settings on a vintage 8mm camera needed to be set for each shot with an exposure meter to get the best result. Here you can see how we have adjusted the exposure in the bottom image adjusting the highlights and mid tones.

8mm film transfer to digital is carried out on a film scanner that copies every frame of your 8mm movie in 1080 High Definition to achieve the highest quality. Our scanning method records all the data in every frame of the film. An average order has 1000 captured frames per minute, which are digitally compiled and colour corrected.
Once your 8mm film transfer to digital has been scanned, it may still contain multiple scratches and dust particles embedded in the film surface. Film stock can also appear grainy due to exposure settings on the camera as seen on the left of this split-screen example. Using specialist software we can reduce those imperfections while preserving details to enhance your film, as can be seen on the right hand side.
