Important Fact-  A Must Read

People that watched their Films on an old working Projector before sending off to a Transfer Company. 

The General Public will, 100% of the time, fight to get their money back with the company that did their Transfer.  They say: "I just watched my films on my Projector before I sent them to you and the DVD you made does not look like my projection at all.  My Projection looked great compared to the DVD you made; I want my Money Back".


What is included

16mm/8mm FILM restoration:

  • Guaranteed MORE VIEWING TIME when you use my service: All films run faster than normal, jittery, Keystone cop-ish, expecially 16mm-. I correct this, to a normal pace, added to the running time as much as 50% making your viewing time twice as long as any other company. Other companies will not slow down to a normal human pace- see video example (no other company does this)
  • Films are hand cleaned & splice replaced or repaired, computer enhanced, Computer Color corrected (see demo videos, turn your speakers on)

16mm Audio track:

Optical or Magnetic- I am the only company that will enhance the audio track ( no other company offers this)

If YOUR FILMS Are Silent, I edit in Historically correct music of the time period per scene, (1950's Christmas music for 1950's Christmas films etc.)- see and hear demos

(there is not one company in the U.S that Edits music per given film scene).

  1. I provide a .avi computer file for near and far future editing projects/ archiving/ internet clips. (no other company offers this)

  2. also 5 playable DVD's are provided - 1 to save, 4 others to give away for friends and family members (no other company offers this)

  3. Films are put in order (about 75% Accurate) (no other company does this)

  4. I keep a copy of your work here in my computer for shipping safety when sent back to you. (no other company does this)

  5. 100% money back guaranteed that I can restore your films to look and sound better than any other company. (no other company offers this)

  6. No charge for blank footage, bad spots can be repaired.

  7. 28 years of experience, serving all of the U.S. Canada, Puerto Rico, Alaska, Hawaii

"These films are UNBELIEVABLE.  Fantastic job overlaying sound from planes and beaches, etc.  I am truly amazed at the quality of your restoration.  There is absolutely no comparison to what others are trying to do.  I'll be sending out, this week, ALL of my grandparents 16mm films, about 30.  There is no hurry on the return date as I know your expertise takes time.  I'll just need to know the amount of the included check prior to your deposit."

Thanks again for resurrecting some very old memories!

My experience with Reel Film Production... I had some old film reels that other people said they couldn't do anything with at that point. They were from 1974. I thought I would at least give it a shot. Not only did Reel Film Productions clean up and transfer the film but the quality was superb! I couldn't believe that I was able to watch these clips that other companies said were "lost." The speed of the service was fast and the communication was lightning-quick. I was so happy that I sent one more batch of little reels that was returned as professionally as the first. I am so glad that I found Reel Film Production and plan to use them for any other items of this nature in the future. They restore the past to the present! I would rate this service 5 out of 5 stars plus a bonus star for speed and quality!
