We exclusively use only real Super 8 and 16mm motion picture film for complete event coverage, not video.

Film is the most beautiful, flattering and archival medium with which to capture life's most special occasions. It is the tasteful alternative to video.

We use meticulously restored vintage movie cameras, which always create a buzz of excitement at events. We offer single or multiple cameras with the optional addition of sync sound. The raw film footage will undergo telecine transfer into a digital format, and the edited film will be delivered to watch on a DVD.

We give you the all the original film footage to keep in your archive, along with two digital versions of your film: the full un-edited footage, and the edited Director's Cut set to music for watching on DVD and/or sharing online.

There is no amount of manipulation by videographers in editing that can replicate the natural and distinct look of film. Don't be mislead. Insist on real film. Read less
