Our Vision

Alive Studios products have touched the lives of over 24,000 people.

Whether that’s through restoring an archive of old family cine film, scanning a collection of 35mm slides or converting a Betamax tape previously thought irreparable.

This is what we do. This is what we love. And to love something is to be passionate about it. Passion for this job does not allow us to be ‘mediocre’ or ‘normal’ or ‘standard’. These are words we shun, words we hate. For us, it’s the very best or not at all.

We don’t see home movies as a piece of film to be copied.
We see family movies are a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, and the things you never want to lose. We treat your films with the respect they deserve and carry out our work to the highest standard possible with today’s technology. This is why we refuse to do cine film or videotape transfers in standard definition. In 2012 all our equipment went to High Definition, and in 2016 we upgraded all our film scanners to 4K.  In the last quarter of 2022 we took delivery of our best ever scanner The full frame Phoenix 5K film scanner. We are the technical innovators in our industry and must set the standard, so it’s the highest quality possible or not at all.

    Over the last 24 months we have…

    What comes next…


    New for 2023, our Phoenix 5K full frame scanner gives us our most significant camera system update ever, offering next-level image quality in a 16-megapixels frame scan. Our scanner takes individual photographs of each cell of your film from 8mm all the way up to 35mm film. You can have your film scanned in 2K, High Definition, or 4K Ultra High Definition. AI technology is then used to remove dust, remove harsh noise while recovering real detail, restore colours and create an artefact-free perfect 24fps movie.
