Movie Transfer from Camera

MOVIE TRANSFER

The cost of a home movie transfer to digital varies greatly from one company to the next. However there is a significant difference in the level of quality between them. Unfortunately most home movie transfer services don’t reveal much about their equipment or transfer method. Which makes it difficult to know what you’re actually getting. So it’s extremely important to do your research and ask lots of questions. Start by looking for a local, reputable company in your area.

Use a local company instead of an online mail-in service to ensure your movies won’t get lost or damaged in transit. However be aware that there are still some local companies that outsource production to another location. The big box retailers aren’t the only ones who outsource their work. Some local companies cleverly disguise unaffiliated retailers as “Certified Partners” when in fact they are just merely a drop-off location. The drop-off location employees who handle your irreplaceable movies have zero film and production experience. Your movies will sit unattended for days until they eventually transported to the company’s main location. Thus increasing the risk of your movies getting lost or damaged.

At Icehouse Pictures we have decades of movie transfer experience and never outsource or transport your property to another location. All transfer services are completed in our studio, which is conveniently located in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
