One size does not fit all when it comes to scanning film. Whether it is your entire archive of home movies or 1 special 50' treasure, we apply the same workflow, quality, and integrity as if they were our own precious memories. When you master your production or home movie films at Pro8mm, you know your films are handled the way professionals handle their personal and professional media. 

When film is prepped for scan, all rolls will be prepped together onto one reel and one digital file per 400 feet. No exceptions. Individual files are available for an extra fee, under Prep & File organization options.   

Additional Scanning Details


Pro8mm can improve many old archival films that have excessive torn perfs, moldy film, extra splices, film that needs to be reversed, or fixed in any way. We do charge any extra fee for any services beyond the included normal prep and clean service. Unfortunately, we typically can not see these issues until we start prepping your film. Should we run into any issues once in prep, we will notify you before proceeding if your job needs TLC. $100 per labor hour.

Pro8mm is proud to offer a 20% discount on all film transfers that are done unscheduled. Unscheduled transfers may take 4-8 weeks.  Select un-scheduled discount under turn-around time. This can be a great savings, especially for home movies!
