WHAT PEOPLE SAY

What an absolute pleasure to work with such decent people who give absolute attention to detail in the most loving and professional way
Chaim Tuch
I was very pleased with the quality of the work. Extremely professional and the turnaround time to deliver was exceptionally fast. I had a great experience with Anthony and Michelle and will definitely be using their services going forward!

I have a lot of old videos from the 1990's of extreme sentimental value which I've struggled for years to covert to modern formats. I've tried other services in the past who made lots of promises which didn't pan out. In desperation I even bought some of the equipment to try do it myself, but it was impossible. On a whim a few weeks ago I tried a google search and found a company with an perfect 5 star rating. At first I thought this were fake reviews until I read them. I contacted Freeman productions and found them to be extremely courteous and professional. Sent the tapes and got a PERFECT result back. The quality is exceptional, nothing got lost and everything was done to my complete satisfaction. The price was also unbelievably low considering the amount of work involved. Don't look anywhere else - these are the guys to use !
