Wet or Water damaged 8mm, 16mm Movie Film Recoveryand transfer: $50 plus $8 per minute of recovered material (approx $0.50/ foot).

The success of wet or water damaged film recovery depends on many factors including the type of film and your proper handling.  Send them as they are - if wet keep cool and wet; if dry keep cool and dry. Number the reels of movie film and keep a list of titles. Wet movie film needs to be recoved quickly! Movie film is different than magnetic audio and video tape because it has a soft 'emulsion' on one side of a clear plastic carrier strip. The emulsion contains all of the picture information. The emulsion will become soft and the dyes in it may dissolve and run and the emulsion can stick together as the film is wound on the reel.  Send the film as they are - if wet, double seal in plastic bags and keep cool; if dry seal in bags, keep cool, and send before it becomes all stuck together.


My family's 8mm movie film were damaged after a house fire and are very wet. They are in zip lock bags and will keep them cool in the refrigerator until I send them.  We received the DVDs and files. We love them and had lots of fun looking at them. We never thought we would see them again, so glad we found you.  Thanks, Brenda.

We have 8mm film reels that is still wet and smells bad.  Received the DVDs and are thrilled to see our kids again.  So glad we found you.  thanks,  Leslie.
