If you have old movie film that you want to preserve before it becomes no longer viewable, this is the place to go. (By the way, I'm not a shill for the company.) I just had almost 2 hours of 8mm, nearly 60 year old, film transferred to high definition video with amazing results. A previous lab that I tried wound up producing a video that I could barely watch because it was filled with black scratches and blobs. (That company did kindly refund my money because I was so dissatisfied.) Using some kind of liquid wet gate system that somehow eliminates or at least reduces the visible scratches on the film. It actually works. You can compare frame by frame and easily see the difference.

I brought my 20 minute Super 8 film to Super 8 Sound (now known as Pro8mm) to have it transferred. Their work wasn't bad, except for the last 5 minutes of the film which was out of focus or slightly over exposed. When I complained they said it was fine and would not redo it. Then I brought it to My Movie Transfer. At first, it was too dark, so they did it again. The second time was better, but overall it was still a little dark, and there was a small scene that was out of focus. However, they thought it was fine and wouldn't correct it. So, finally, I brought it to Cinepost and they transferred it perfectly. Everything was in focus and it was color corrected perfectly. I couldn't recommend them more. The film never looked better.

I had 3 reels of 16mm film sitting in the closet for years. One of them was a color/sound reel of my parents' 1969 wedding. The other 2 were B&W/sound reels from the 1950s which were early TV appearances of my Father, who was a singer. I opened one of the B&W reels one day, and immediately got that awful whiff of "vinegar" and I knew it was time to get them transferred to DVD before it was too late. For safety reasons, I didn't want to take them someplace that would send them out of state, and I had difficulty finding someplace that handled 16mm in-house. Fortunately, I found Cinepost. It was nice to talk directly to the people who were going to handle the films, and they were very friendly and enthusiastic about the transfers. I knew that the films would be handled with care and precision. They did a fantastic job with the films - I could not have asked for better quality. The DVD really looks beautiful. Cinepost's pricing was comparable to the only other place I priced for in-house 16mm transfers, and I am 100% certain that Cinepost's results are far superior to what I would have gotten if I had gone elsewhere. If I ever need to have anything done in the future, I will not think of going anywhere else. Thank you again for the great work! Miel

We have used Cinepost for over 10 years now for high end film transfers as well as small home movie jobs. The do quality work at very reasonable prices and you can always get the owners on the phone if there is a problem. Highly recommended.

Cinepost just did a remarkable job for me rescuing some damaged 16mm footage from 1938, which had been poorly stored. The film base had shrunken against the emulsion, leaving spiderwebby cracks and bubbles, and it suffered from vinegar syndrome as well. The sprocket holes had shrunken so much I couldn't run it at all on a projector, only view it in my Moviscop viewer with great difficulty. Cinepost's wetgate made unwatchable film watchable again, and they were able to run it with minimal loss of frame due to the sprocket hole situation. My hat's off to them! Riverviewfan
