We convert your old cine reel films to modern formats for viewing on current day devices.

We only charge for the amount of footage on each reel*, for example a 200ft reel may only contain 100ft of cine film, or there may be undeveloped film on the reel.

We use specialised film scanners that produce high-quality crystal clear images. Our scanning equipment use Super bright LEDs which produce no heat on the film. They have direct drive mechanisms with no claws, sprockets or pinch rollers to damage brittle film that can happen all too often using old home projectors.

Your cine films are supplied as digital video files or can be authored to DVD.

We can also add background music and titles.

I am a Film Producer/Director; Ian Laurie has been my Number One Editor for more than fifteen years.

Ian is so very reliable, as an editor he listens to exactly what I want when I am producing the edit and is creative with his own ideas and expertise. My clients are always extremely pleased with the films we put together which are mainly Corporate or Charity promotional.

Ian is a highly accomplished Camera operator; he produces many of his own films for his own clients and is brilliant as second camera working along side me on my shoots. Ian has high quality camera, sound and lighting kit of his own for video. He is also an extremely accomplished stills photographer. Ian is highly skilled with all aspects of film production. He is hard working, calm, reliable, friendly and polite. I thoroughly recommend his Film Production Services.
