Digitized, by hand.
8mm isn’t just the title of the little loved and less remembered 1999 Nicolas Cage/Joel Shumacher collaboration. It’s also America’s favorite format for shooting home movies! (This statement brought to you by the year 1965). In all seriousness, there’s nothing quite like the simple, handmade feel of beautiful Super8 film. But if you walk into any standard electronics store today, you’re going to have a really hard time finding a device that will play the film in all its original glory. That’s where Southree comes in.
Our state of the art 8mm film to Digital service takes your old unplayable formats and converts them to pristine, long lasting thumb drives, digital delivery through Southtree Cloud™ or DVDs. Our process is the same as the one used by the American Academy of Motion Pictures to preserve and protect historic Hollywood films from the past. Each frame of your Super8 film will be handled and transferred by hand by one of our expert technicians. Each of your memories will be treated with the care and attention they deserve.
Best of all, at the end of the process you’ll be the proud owner not only of some amazing original 8mm footage, but also a beautiful stack of playable, storable, safe DVDs that you can customize however you like.
If you’ve got a few reels of old footage (with or without sound), preserve them now with our professional Super8 to Digital transfer service. Isn’t it time you and your memories got back together?
