Customer Feedback

Since 1992, we have had many happy and satisfied customers have had the joy of their precious cine film being transferred to video, DVD and digital. Here are just a few of the comments that we have received from them.

Phil kept me updated from the day he received them, sent me a tester via email to make sure I was happy with the quality, and even made sure I would be home to receive the delivery when it arrived. Absolutely superb service, I couldn’t fault it, well done Phil, I would not hesitate to recommend your services at any time.

Dear Phil, you've done a wonderful job with the reels and I'm so grateful our paths crossed! Thank you for all your care and diligence towards my footage, and I'm very impressed with the results.

Tom, Somerset

From my first telephone contact with Phil I was aware of the passion and pride in his work; I knew that the transfer of our rather sad and neglected 1960’s 8mm cine films to a digital format could be safely left in his care. From us posting the 10 reels, to receiving them back took just 5 days and the digitised version was better than we had hoped for. A big thank you Phil.

Jean S, Plymouth

Many thanks for the excellent job that you done on transferring my films to DVD. We are very pleased with the results and the memories from 40 years ago.

Keith C, Ipswich

Thank you for the fantastic work that you did for me recently on my old super8 film reel. Considering what condition this reel was in I overjoyed at what you have retrieved for me and put to DVD. The memories on watching it are worth thier weight in gold to me and my family. Superb.

Mr Mark D, Plymouth

Received the surprise film and indeed it contained just what I had thought it would be of. It is a very nice remembrance of my parents and family… it has been a very long time since 1946 and I am glad it came out that well.

Liliane C, USA
