Temp Disc Of Your Project's Work Files
You may want to take advantage of our Temp Disc option. Many times reels are not labeled or have not been viewed in years, so you may find you don't want to include all the footage. We create a Disc (or write to a flash drive or external hard drive) with each reel in its own chapter, you pay for film conversation and $10 for a Temp Disc. Take the Temp Disc home and decide what order you want the files in, make notes of footage you don't want included and make up titles for your project. Just bring back your notes with the Temp Disc and as per your instructions we will create a new final DVD for $24.95. Temp Disc working files can be written to a Data DVD, external Hard Drive or Flash Drive at a $11/hr rate plus cost of any digital media you're purchasing from us.

8mm & Super 8 Film to Digital Conversion Process
It takes 3 steps to get film to a DVD-Video. First the film is converted by LED process to digital format and during this process it is monitored for focus, light/dark images, then the digital disc is loaded in our computer system and the reels are meshed together and our tech goes through and cleans up the film images removing any bad areas, the last step in the process is to add our opening, titles, and music for your completed DVD-Video.
