Film-to-Tape Transfer

Remember those days before video tape? I know it's hard to do but...


Most of us can still remember those days when 8mm or 16mm film was the way to capture your family memories. From Weddings to Birthdays to those special holidays. It's time to dust off that old box that you've had sitting in the back of a closet somewhere at home and pull out those old movies and preserve them on video. What most people don't know is that film has a shelf life. After many years film begins to degrade and break apart. Now is the time to preserve those old special memories on to video. Video tape allows you the chance to relive all of those special moments again and again without the fear of your old film degrading to the point that it is unwatchable. Plus video allows you to add sound and music to those old movies that use to be silent in the past.


On Tape Video provides you a chance to save all of those old memories on to video at an affordable rate.


Services included are:


- Transfer of 8mm, Super 8mm and 16mm to VHS or S-VHS

- Use of S-VHS camera and professional multiplexor to capture the greatest clarity and detail from all films

- Inclusion of 1 master title

- Tasteful instrumental music throughout the tape

     - You may also request your own songs

- Quick turnaround time

     - All work is done in-house

- FedEx shipping for orders in other cities, states or countries

- Additional editing provided at an additional per hour charge

Living Legacy

Most people over the years hear the stories of their family history passed on from one generation to another. How many of us can recall those stories today? Sometimes it is hard to recall the stories shared with us by parents and grandparents. Memories tend to fade away. These stories may influence or inspire the upcoming generation.


Family History video's are customized video tapes highlighting family memories, pictures, movies and experiences into a family album, or a legacy of experiences told by the person/persons who have lived them. Family stories kept alive on videotape to be shared with future generations. And in cases with Alzheimer's patients a chance to capture that persons memories and personality before they fade away.


Everyone has a story to tell. Some would rival any Hollywood script, while others would follow a simpler script. Some stories we can all relate to while others could have been from a page in Ripley's Believe It or Not. All these stories are important!


Our standard package includes:


- Initial consultation

- Outline of questions to be asked during the interview(s)

- Customized scripting

- Interviewer to assist you in the telling of your story

- Personal interview at your home or in our studio

- 2 hours of taping

- Professional cameraman and wireless microphone

- Inclusion of old photo's and memorabilia

- Professional editing with titles and music

- Packages that are customized to meet each individuals needs

- FedEx shipping for orders in other cities, states or countries


Don't wait until the past has faded to a forgotten memory. Preserve the past today on video! For more information on a Living Legacy Family History video for you and your family please call our offices or simply e-mail us and we'd be happy to discuss your individual needs.
