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.

I received it yesterday [mp4 files recovered from reels of 16mm and 8mm film damaged in 2017 hurricane Henry] and quickly went through the mp4 video files.  All looks great to me! Again thank you so much!! Robyn, Texas, 77382.

My family's 8mm movie film was damaged in 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 have now 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 are still wet and smell very bad.  We have now received the DVDs and are thrilled to see our kids again.  So glad we found you.  thanks,  Leslie.

Ha!  Much better than I had hoped for [8mm film water damaged in hurricane Katrina in 2005 at father's house and now dry, recovered to mp4 files]. Very nice. thanks, Jerry, Chicago, Illinois, IL 60641.
