We convert Sound Film too!

Video MVP did an excellent job and completed the transfer very promptly. I had several reels of film without information about their content or when the films were made. Video MVP prepared a DVD of these to review and then placed the videos in the proper sequence with others. I would recommend them for anyone wanting to save important family memories.

Share Memories!

These people are fabulous! I took around 35 OLD 8mm reels of film to have them digitized and put on a thumb drive. These reels were 50 plus years old and the final product was outstanding! It only took them a month to complete the work and I am extremely happy! I have a lot of old camcorder cassettes that need digitizing, so I will DEFINITELY be taking them to Video MVP! I HIGHLY recommend them for all of your video needs! Thank you Video MVP!

Video MVP Difference

In-House Digitization

All film digitization work is done here. We do NOT send your priceless films across the country for some other company to convert.

Frame-by-frame Conversions

Our frame-by-frame conversion process means no film flicker. There's no image area contact or sprocket damage.

HD Conversions

All our film conversions are 1080p HD. These files are much better quality than an SD conversion.

Color Correction

All our Premium Conversion film projects include free color correction. We go through your film looking for dark and off-color scenes. We'll apply video filters to improve the quality of your final video.

No Charge Editing

As part of our film digitization process we will go through and remove blank or completely overexposed scenes to make a more enjoyable video for you.

Any Size Reel

Your film reels are returned intact (not combined on larger reels). This helps you with identifying each reel based on notes that may be on your reels or boxes.

Final Video Options

For your final video, you have your choice of Video Files, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, or any combination of them.

Personal Attention

We understand how important your film memories are to you. We are happy to help with special requests to protect and preserve your film.

I cannot tell you how extremely happy we are with your service. I just watched our DVD last night and it was especially heartwarming and emotional to see so many family members who have since passed on. I cannot wait to show this to my brothers and mother. You have truly sent a special memory for us always and cannot be more grateful to have found your company to save these precious memories. Thank you again for your work and dedication in keeping the past in the present.

Film Conversion FAQs

You have two options. When you choose the Premium Conversion for your film with video files, we will create a file for each of your film reels. The reels can be named with an overall name and then a sequence number, like "Davis Family 001". The other option is to customize each file name. For example, reel 1 might be named "1968 Niagra Falls" and reel 2 might be "1972 Joe's 5th Birthday". If you would like this option, just type up your titles, listing them by reel number, and email it to us. We'll rename all your film files with your custom text at no extra charge. Please note the text MUST be emailed to us for the custom names to be free.

Look at the film samples below. Notice that both film formats are the same width, but the 8mm reels have larger sprocket holes. 8mm film was an earlier technology than Super 8. So as you put your reels in order, most likely, the 8mm reels would be earlier in time.

To help determine the order, look for dates on the postmarks and film processing dates on the inside of the yellow boxes. Sometimes there are dates on the leader of the film. In general, larger reels tend to be earlier in time. When film was a new technology, people often took the time to splice the small reels together. As time went on, that became too time-consuming and many people stopped splicing their reels.

Sure. Once your master video is produced, we can make additional copies for family and friends. We can also make additional USB drives.

Yes, we will print your disc(s) with any title you like. Consider including a family name like "The Gibson Family Films" or "The Albertson Trip to Alaska." After all, the goal is to preserve these film memories for future generations.

Yes. You can get Tips on Shipping Your Order or just get a Film to Digital Order Form to include with your film reels. When we receive them, we will give you a price quote and an estimated completion date. Need it done fast? Let us know your deadline and we'll do whatever we can to meet it.

Film Memories Preserved

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).

EVEL KNIEVEL - This short clip of the motorcycle daredevil is from the early 1980's. Famous for his ramp-to-ramp jumps and attempted Snake River Canyon jump, he also made personal appearances like in this Montana parade.

PRESIDENT DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER - Though not great quality, 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!

PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON - Home film of The President arriving at Baer Field in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was a rainy evening on October 20, 1970. President Nixon later went to a Republican political rally at the Fort Wayne Memorial Coliseum.
