Are any of your small 9.5mm reels 'Baby Pathe' spools?
If so, we are happy to remove the film from the spools for you and transfer them for you, but advise there is a £10/spool charge for handling.

How many of your small 9.5mm reels are 'Baby Pathe'?

Calculating your order in feet If you have reels with odd amounts of film on them - for instance a 400 foot reel that contains 250 feet of film, and a 200 foot reel that has 150 feet, etc. you may find it easier to add up the total amount of feet and enter it here. The form will then charge you according to the total feet you enter, rather than the total number of reels.

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.

Capturing Sound Reels

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.
