As many as you like! We capture to large and small projects, be it for an individual or a company.
Most likely, even though films do degrade over time, you will be surprised how good some of them still look. If you are worried then you can look at the film through a light source or by a window and if you can make out what is on the film then it is probably a good idea to have it converted.
We do provide express delivery as an option, otherwise it will take between 10 – 20 working days to convert your 16mm reels. This is to ensure that they meet our high quality standard
We can provide a USB as an additional part of the service or you can bring your own. If you do this, you just need to check that it has enough available space.

Yes, if your films have sound we can transfer them
High Definition all the way. We go through a tune up process to make sure the reels look as good as they possibly can, however the final result will largely depend on the current state of the film.
Yes, even though you have a projector you still should convert your films to a digital format because in conjunction with the previously mentioned wear and tear of the film, the projector itself will wear and tear. This will mean that you won’t be able to play your films forever. The projector itself can also increase the wear on your film as it can damage its holes over time and burn the film.
