While the evolution of the camera has allowed us to preserve precious moments, it is also responsible for the extinction of sketch artists and troupes of Yesterday Reenactors. Pay tribute to the time captors of yore with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of digital film, video, and slide transfer at The Film Transfer Company.
The skilled editors at The Film Transfer Company deliver aging home movies, fragile film, and fading photographs into the digital age. Unlike the bulletproof brains and cast-iron memories of humans, film and videotape are vulnerable to deterioration due to temperature, moisture, and age. The Film Transfer Company rescues sepia-toned 16mm, Super 8, and 8mm celluloid memoirs from attic rot and spruces them up with a high-definition, frame-by-frame transfer that includes cleaning, color correction, and custom chapters ($9.50/50'). Up to 1,200 feet of film can be squeezed onto one DVD, Blu-Ray disc, or hard drive. The Film Transfer Company also usurps up to two hours of footage from VHS, VHS-C, and MiniDV ($20/tape) with scrupulous video transfer that translates those cherished gatherings into fluent digitalese.
In addition to film and video, antiquated slides ($0.59 each) and photographs ($0.75 each) can also be emancipated from shoeboxes and sharpened, tweaked, and de-fingerprinted. Technicians then stash the images in DVD-friendly TIFF or JPG files, keeping nostalgia crisp and fresh for years to come.
The physical-to-digital technicians of Memorable understand that old media can slowly deteriorate from age, improper handling, or the focused fury of Leonard Maltin’s trained moths. Through their transfer services, the staffers can skillfully turn photographs and slides, VHS and camcorder tapes, and film into everlasting memories. They can also upgrade the quality of images, increasing clarity and removing artifacts of age through high resolution scanning, dust and dirt removal, and grain reduction.
