How many of your small 9.5mm reels are 'Baby Pathe'?
You should still enter the actual number of reels you are sending and the size spools they are on, regardless of the amount of film on them. This is so we can check we have received everything safely at our end. So long as you tick the "Calculate my order in feet" option, your price will be based on the number of feet you enter.
We charge £55 for each 15mins of film.

Why add pictures to my film?You can enhance your enjoyment of your films even more by supplying us with a bunch of slides or photos that we can add at the end of your films in form of a slideshow to summarize the experience.
If you wish to place the photos differently, at the start of the film for example, you can specify this in the additional notes section of the final order form print out.
On-screen titles are now available to really personalise your film. Perhaps it's a dedication to a loved one, maybe you want to have the title of your film displayed such as
"The Smith Family Movies 1965-1975" or maybe you want a title at the start of each decade. You could even have a title come up for every chapter saying the date, place and event for each one. Whatever use you find, titles can really add the professional touch.
You can have upto 2 lines per screen, maximum 30 characters per line. £2.50 per screen.
Why is there a charge?
On our current systems for transferring Cine Film, sound reels require 2 seperate transfers. Doing the transfer this way enables us to capture both video and sound at the highest quality possible.
While the reels are capturing, one of our transfer operators monitors the capture so that the sound and video can be matched back up without sync problems which can occur due to the variations of speed that cine could be filmed at.
Once captured, an editor will spend a large portion of time syncing the sound and video back together making sure it all matches up correctly whilst editing the video for splices, leader tape and colour correction.
The extra charge per hour is there to cover the extra time spent on this service which is approximately 3 times longer than a silent film transfer.
We are happy to arrange our courier to collect your films from your work or home address. We'll provide you with a convenient one hour time slot by text and/or email.
Collection is completely free on all cine film orders. (up to 10Kg from any UK address).
How it works
On the day of collection you receive an email & text message which announces a one hour delivery slot, if you are unavailable simply choose a different date and have your order re-arranged.
Delivery back to you is completely FREE on ALL orders, no matter how large or small. As with our collection service, we even provide you with a precise one hour delivery window so you don't have to wait in all day.
For those in a real hurry, we have a limited number of slots each week to process urgent orders. As this work is undertaken overnight and weekends, there is naturally a surcharge.
To guarantee your work back within 1 week of receipt (often within a day or two if it's a small order), simply tick the box. We will let you know immediately if there is any problem with completing your order on the Express Service. For orders of more than 2 hours of film, please phone/email to check if express service is available.
