Transfer 8mm and 16mm movie film reels to DVD or digital video files.
Bring your home movie film in to us or send us the reels and we'll clean, lubricate and splice your film, and then digitally capture the film frame by frame. We can then save the converted movies to DVD or as .mp4 movie files on a USB drive.
8mm and 16mm movie film reels are getting harder to play, even if you can find a working projector, so have them transferred and saved on modern media today.
Unlike many other video companies, our film transfer jobs are done here in town, so your movie film will never leave the Kansas City area.

Should I get a DVD or .mp4 digital movie files from my film?
We often have customers ask which is better: DVD or digital movie files (.mp4)? The answer really depends on whether you want to be able to watch the converted movie film on your DVD player, or if watching them on another device is an option for you. DVD players have not been newly manufactured for several years, although Blu-Ray players will play DVD movies. But, with the movie film saved as an .mp4 digital movie file, you will be abe to copy and transfer your videos for years to come, without worry.
TIP: We cannot transfer or convert movies that are copyright protected.
