How do you count film reels?

That's a great question!

Each individual reel is counted as one item. If you have smaller films spliced together on a larger reel, it will still only count as one item. We do not count film format by the length of the film, but by each reel you send in.

We are able to convert any size of film reel, up to 10". We digitize every consumer format film created including 8mm, Super 8, and 16mm.

Since most film reels are generally short in length, your films will be combined onto as few DVDs as possible in no specific order. However, you can arrange them on our Download or Thumb Drive option! 

We are currently not able to process Regular9.5 or Super9.5 films. And it is not our standard process to digitize the sound line.
