Little at a time

Getting your 8mm 16mm Films Transferred  Little at a time is the best way to do this.
Do not 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.
NO NEED TO DO ALL Films AT the SAME TIME:
Let me do 1 or 2 small reels. See how you like it !

Getting Quotes & Bids, thinking that this is all the same, regardless who does it, is a recipe for disaster.


Watch the video examples
