Although Christopher Paul is a professional photographer, he doesn’t like having his picture taken. Since he knows what it’s like to feel a little uncomfortable on the other side of the lens, he spends his time crafting shoots that are as engaging and easy-going as possible for his subjects, whether he’s capturing family portraits, engagement photos, or keepsake wedding stills. Rather than working out of a studio, for example, he always shoots at a location of the subject’s choosing. He prefers shooting outdoors. People not only tend to relax outside, but natural light is far more flattering than that of a flashbulb. He also shows subjects proofs during as they pose, so they aren’t surprised by their final shots.
What do VHS tapes, Betamax tapes, 8mm film, and film negatives all have in common? Besides being terribly outdated, they often hold some of our most precious memories. Fortunately, the folks at Memorable have created a simple way in which to not only organize those memories, but preserve them for posterity.
Here's how it works: First, Memorable scans and syncs material from the full range of media formats into pristine digital form. Then it organizes memories into an easy-to-use digital timeline. Built-in tools allow you to view, edit, and share your memories, and adding them to your timeline as they unfold. Most importantly, you can trust that the staff will treat your originals with care. Thousands of people have already enlisted Memorable to protect their most-precious moments, something the staff views not only as an honor, but a responsibility.
With the advent of the digital age, calling movies “films” is becoming increasingly inaccurate, and Pixcel is at the forefront of this media shift. The digitization business started as a research project at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign focused on bringing old media to the modern world. That was more than a decade and five Fast and the Furious sequels ago. Nowadays, Pixcel has established a name for itself outside the academic sphere, digitizing not only family memorabilia, but massive archives for the Joffrey Ballet, the Arizona Department of Transportation, and the United States Geological Society. They transform analog formats—such as tape, film and photos—into digital HD files, which they can store on everything from DVDs to external hard drives.
The physical-to-digital technicians of Pixcel 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 digital files, able to be stored on hard drives or burned onto physical discs. They can also upgrade the quality of images, increasing clarity and producing brighter colors through frame-by-frame scanning, film restoration, and color correction.
At Zichronot Video Productions, a team of audiovisual experts record events and updates obsolete media to digital formats. Filming packages include up to two cameramen, professional editing, and professionally-mastered DVD recordings of weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and other events. The onsite digitization lab, meanwhile, transcribes the contents of VHS, VHS-C, and Mini DV tapes, and records to digital media.
