Ship Your Order

Watch a sample!

Time, storage conditions and the old projector you may use to play those reels of film, could damage or destroy years of memories.

Converting your old home movies is the best way to preserve them! Film conversion is a two-step process. We convert your film to digital video. From there we color-correct, add background music and even edit out bad footage to make it more enjoyable. Finally, we can output your digitized film to DVD, Blu-ray disc or a computer video file (MP4). Archive your film history before time takes its toll on your reels!

Memories Preserved

EDMUND FITZGERALD - This footage from the early 1970s is of the SS Edmund Fitzgerald. For those who don't know, the "Fitz" sank during a Lake Superior storm on November 10, 1975. All 29 of her crew were lost. The legend of the freighter was made famous by the 1976 hit song "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot.

HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS - Here are clips from two different Globetrotters films. The first film is of the Globetrotters performing on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise in 1966 (color). The second clip is of the Globetrotter Magic Circle from a documentary about their trip to Europe (black and white).

PRESIDENT EISENHOWER - This film is of President Dwight D. Eisenhower in a motorcade. The film was shot near Lafayette, Indiana in 1962. It's amazing to see how close people were to the president. The person shooting the film appears to be within feet of him!
