WHY CHOOSE ME?

  • Years of world-class experience preserving and restoring media from archives and museums such as:

    • Center for Southwest Studies

    • MoMA

    • Denver Museum of Nature and Science

    • History Colorado

    • Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

    • Universal Studios

    • The Smithsonian

    • Eastman Museum

    • Ski and Snowboard Museum

    • UCLA

    • Gates Capital Management

    • Many more…

  • I do not splice your original film. Many services splice your film onto large reels, but I believe in never altering or modifying your originals except to repair or clean.

  • Truly professional equipment. Hand picked to be a step above other transfer services. I only use equipment that is reliable and is known to not damage original material.

  • Independently owned and lovingly operated. This is not a typical "mail-in" service, large corporation, or chain. This is a small, independent and locally owned business with a high-end studio, tons of experience, and I love what I do.

  • Affordable archival quality. My goal is to give you the definitive version of your material that you will never become outdated and won’t break the bank.

  • The "Step-Above" Policy. My prices are designed to give you more for less. For example, I use Gold discs for all of my DVDs, which last longer than standard DVDs and are normally a huge upsell at other transfer services.

FILM

12-bit capture, sprocketless, wide dynamic range, full aperture, positive or negative

My 12 bit-depth process results in increased detail in shadows and highlights, as well as increased flexibility in color correction or restoration, allowing for powerful faded film correction (see the example on the right).

HD Consumer services are delivered is HD MP4 via cloud for compatibility and flexibility. Options available for DVD or flash drive. All HD services include basic cleaning, basic color correction, and noise reduction. Options available for correcting faded film and digital restoration.

2K Professional services are available such as flat scanning, overscan, ProRes 4444, DNxHR, TIFF or DPX.

4K uprezzing (2K with 4K post-process) is available as an option for Regular 8mm, Super8, and 16mm, to increase the quality of the final image.

35mm scanning is available at 2K (cropped or overscanned) or 4K native (overscanned). Allow for extra time for 35mm scanning as they are offered through a local partnership.

Higher-than-average resolution, 48bit TIFF, Custom ICE

Default scanning for slides and negatives is done at 2500 DPI for a balance of usability and archival. Prints are scanned at 600 DPI. Higher resolutions are available.

Each slide or negative is scanned with a custom 48bit HDR process that ensures the full dynamic range of the frame is captured.

Frame-by-frame manual image correction is available as an option.

My own version of Digital ICE is compatible with Kodachrome, allowing for automatic dust reduction without any serious artifacts or loss in dynamic range.
