If your film is extremely dusty or dirty, we can clean your reels before we transfer them for only a few extra cents per foot. We use VitaFilm™ to clean and lubricate your old film. This process is done realtime with lint free cloths and VitaFilm™, passing the film several times through the soaked cloths to remove debris and brighten colors.
For extremely damaged, brittle, vinegar syndrome film (smells like old vinegar) we offer a one week soaking in a restorative VitaFilm™ solution. Soaking will stop vinegar syndrome and improve film flexibility so it can be run through a projector or transfer device. Not all film can be restored to “playability.” Please come in for a consultation to see if your damage film is a candidate for this process. Soaking is $40 per reel and takes 5-8 days to complete.
