If you are lucky enough that someone handed you down a shoebox full of old family films, you might be in a conundrum how to bring these analog home movies into your digital life.
One local company, Pro8mm, located in Magnolia Park, is the industry expert in Super 8 film for production and legacy footage. They have been perfecting the process of transferring 16mm, 8mm, and Super 8mm film for over 30 years, converting film to digital with exceptionally high quality. The work is done by professional colorists on the same state-of-the-art equipment they use for working on studio projects including films such as Argo and Super 8, and TV shows such as American Idol and The Americans. They have transferred the personal film libraries of hundreds of Hollywood moguls and the world’s most famous faces that have been used to preserve the legacy of that family, or, been repurposed for use in a documentary.
Owner Rhonda Vigeant, author of the new book Get “REEL” About Your Home Movie Legacy … Before It’s Too Late!, states, “Home movies are a fragile treasure trove that should be treated with integrity by professionals who have dedicated equipment and experience to preserve our family legacy for future generations. We offer broadcast quality results at greatly reduced rates when we have ‘down time’ from our production work. Your legacy matters!”
