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

  • Hello Phil,

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.

  • Hi Phil

You recently transferred some old (+-45 years old) 8mm film to DVD for me. I thought I’d just drop you a line to say thank you very much for a very professional service, quick turnaround and an excellent result. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending your company. We are currently trying to find more footage and if we’re successful I will be in touch.

  • Just like to thank you for the DVDs of my Mum in America with her Dad in 1970 and Blackpool 1985. My Parents were over the moon and very emotional! Think I’ve started something as mum is looking out more cine films for you to transfer. Thanks again for making their Christmas.

Have a Happy New Year
Alyson C, Ipswich

  • I am writing to say how pleased I am with the DVDs you sent me last week. I was thrilled to find a film of my wedding day! And many other treasures. And all in a nice presentation case.

Many, many thanks and best wishes,
Shirley L, Par, Cornwall

  • Hello Phil,

Just a quick message to say how pleased I am with the DVDs. From our first conversation to delivery of the discs I have received excellent service, been kept informed and have received good quality results.
Albert S, Suffolk

  • Hello Phil,

Having finally got around to having the short film of our wedding converted to DVD, I found Aarchive through an Internet search. The Website instructions, including how to calculate the cost, were easy to follow, and a telephone call to the Company helped me decide this was somewhere I could entrust our 40 year old 8mm Cine film.

I was pleased to receive a message to say the padded envelope had arrived safely, and not long afterwards I received another telephone call saying that the conversion went smoothly, and I would receive the film and DVDs the following morning by special delivery.

I was impressed by the level of service provided, and would recommend Aarchive to anyone looking for a professional media conversion service.
Ian C, Frome, Somerset

  • Hi Phil,

I just want to thank you for the service I’ve had from you. I cant believe how quickly you managed to complete the transfer and get the cine films and DVD back to me! Im also really impressed with your customer service and the way you personally kept me informed every step of the way. The DVDs are BRILLIANT! They came out way better than I expected, and I cant wait to see my parents faces on christmas day when they get to see the memories of their wedding and early married years again. THANK YOU so much, I hope you have a wonderful christmas and i will definately be recommending you to all my family and friends! x

  • Hi Phil,

  • Dear Phil,

I received the DVDs on Saturday and was very pleased with the result, especially since the films had been neglected for about 50 to 60 years.
Clive C, Cheltenham

  • Dear Phil,

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

  • Dear Phil,

Thank you so very much for the fantastic work that you have done. I have already recommended you to one others and will continue to do so.
Petra S, Cheshire

  • Phil,

As you know, the films which you transferred were over 70 years old and priceless family heirlooms. I appreciated the care which you took to check every detail about how I wanted the project executed. Through your skill craftsmanship, many of the original films were returned in better condition than when they were sent to you.

Your efforts to preserve these invaluable family treasures would have not been possible if I had not found you.

In summary, it is truly refreshing to find a skilled professional who knows their trade and meets their commitments.

Your efforts have resulted in lasting joy for my family! Looking forward to working with you on future projects.
Mr Kirchner, Los Angeles, USA

  • Dear Phil

I am writing to thank you for the excellent service and quality of video you provided from the Super 8 Cine Film I sent you earlier this year.

I was initially disappointed that the sound track had not been added, however, on the surprise viewing night there was so much noise and conversation when the images appeared it would have been superfluous.

Thanks again,
Yours sincerely,
C Iggulden, Falmouth

  • Hello Phil,

Watching my precious family films, some dating back to the ’50s on my new DVD player, brought back happy memories of setting up my projector and screen in my parents’ old house. It gave them many a laugh to see themselves up on the silver screen. I wonder what they would have said had they still been with us today.

“I can only stress how much enjoyment I experienced when I saw my old films once again. Welcome DVD.”
C W Parsons, Plymouth

  • Dear Phil,

Just a quick email to say thank you very much for doing such a good job of transferring my cine film to video—I rushed home to watch it last week after I picked up the video and was transfixed for two hours. The quality is much, much better than I envisaged and the whole package looks very professional. I’m sure my parents are going to be delighted. Thanks again.
Mrs O’Leary, Plymouth

  • Dear Phil

Many thanks for converting our Super 8 film from the late 60s and early 70s to DVD in October 2005.

We made ten copies for family members and included them alongside Christmas presents.

The reaction has been excellent and we now have the satisfaction of knowing that Rosie’s father’s films have reached a wider audience ensuring that treasured family memories have been safeguarded for future generations.

We much appreciate your personal service.

Rosie and Chris, Plymouth

  • Phil,

Thank you so much for the superb job you did on our cine films and for having them ready for Christmas. My brothers were all very pleased.

I am sorry to bother you about a further copy of disc 2, but I would particularly like a copy as it includes me as a baby and as a young child.

Thank you again for the films.
D Foulkes, Brighton

  • Thanks Philip,

they arrive on Thursday. I must say I had been on tenterhooks awaiting them and also keeping the project totally secret from my wife. Anyway, she was delighted with it all and we have been watching the VHS stuff. I have just ordered a digital camcorder and hopefully will be able to put the films on to my PC and edit them in the near future.

The quality of what you have done looks very good–pity about some of the filming!!

Kind regards
J Nicklin, Martley

  • Hi Phil

The DVD and VHS transfers arrived here in France this morning. If possible I would like another VHS for an old mate in Wales.

Thanks for doing an excellent transfer as this film has not seen the light of day for 50 years. I thought it might have disintegrated.

I Stone, Boulogne, France

  • Thank you very much for the fantastic work done on the cine films. We had a delightful evening, showing the children their relatives as they had never seen them before! A really worthwhile investment. I have already recommended your services to one other and will continue to do so.

Many thanks,
J Stockdale, Ipswich

  • Hello again,

Thanks so much for the last lot of film you transferred to VHS, it was amazing. I got to see long-lost footage of myself as a baby which was really incredible! I converted it to mpg & posted it onto Google Video so my Dad in Australia could watch them over the Internet. He was so thrilled he went back through his attic and mailed me over another box worth of film!

So, I need to have some more converted… it is rather a lot more than last time.

Thanks again, 🙂
L Webb, London
