FAQ

Reel to Reel 8 MM & 16 MM Film

Question:

Should I send all my reels in at one time?

Answer:

Getting your 8mm 16mm Films Transferred a little at a time is the best way to do this. Never send or drop off ALL your films to anybody! How do you know what it's going to look like? Many people make this mistake,. thinking it's all the same. There is NO NEED TO DO ALL Films AT the SAME TIME.  Do 1 or 2 small reels. See how you like it!

Question:

"I am not sure what is on the reels or what order they are in.. I want to find a projector and review them. Should I place a want- ad in the newspaper for a projector."

Answer:

A want ad? That’s a long shot. Your not even going to find a projector that in good working order on the Internet . That’s time wasted and more damage done to the films. If your films have been spliced on to a larger reel, either 200-foot, 300- foot or 400-foot ( 5 inches, 6 inches or 7 inches across the center of the reel edge to edge), this is usually the best footage of all the types of reels you may have in your collection. Because someone years ago had taken the time to edit the best of the small 50 foot reels.

Question:

"Do I get my films back when your done transferring them?"

Answer:

You will get them back in better condition. They are cleaned, splices fixed, leaders added. We do not charge for film that is not usable, blank or overexposed.

Question:

How Does Your Film Transfer Differ From Other Companies?

Answer:

My Restoration service uses Spirit_DataCine. Old Film Projectors are not used in my process, most other companies do. Camcorders are not used in my process, no screens, no transfer box's - in my process. Most other companies do. You really need to watch the videos to see the incredible difference.

Testimonials

I searched and tried 3 other transfer companies to get my 8mm family films from the 1940's to 1950's. the work form these other company's was terrible. I contacted Reel Film Production and they pointed me in the right direction. First my big mistake was shopping by price.. I was thinking the work was all the same so I will get the cheapest thing.. WRONG.. on the first phone call I asked "how much do you charge" Bob's response was "what do you want your films to look like ? you already had it done 2 or 3 times and you were not happy, now it's time to get it done right". So he had me go to his site to view the comparison demo video showing other company's work compared to what he does. He said he re-does jobs like the one i have, several times a week, from all over the country. I sent my films to him and i was amazed that it only took 1 week not 8 weeks like before. and the quality was monumental difference, colors were corrected focus was clear film speed was normal not sped up like before.. everything was so much better. It came on 5 DVD's not just one and also came with a Computer file on a Hard Drive.. really cool. He's right .. you do get what you pay for! i recommend him to do the other side of my family's films. Reel Film Production is like one of those middle aged "artist" types so.. deal with it. Now my films are a Family treasure to hand down from generation to generation !
