Via-Vision Video has become the recommended source for preservation of old 8mm films throughout Maine and New England. Films are captured digitally using our flicker-free system, which eliminates the flashing light which is dramatically noticed when transferring old films with a regular home movie projector and video camera.
We take pride in restoring, transferring and preserving family memories to be enjoy and shared once again. Films are often left behind and sit in a closet box waiting to be restored because they are easily forgotten or folks no longer have a working projector. Deliver the film reels to our studio and you will discover an easy method of resurrecting your lost family memories because we’ll make the transition from film to DVD easy. Not sure what you have because the films are unmarked? No fear! We’ll provide you with a proof DVD and upon your review we’ll make the appropriate changes and place the films in the correct order. It’s that simple!
Have more questions? Feel free to review our information provide on this website and once your ready we’ll be glad to answer any additional questions. We love what we do and we look forward to serving you soon because at Via-Vision Video we “Make Treasured Moments Last!”
EDITING: After transferring your films we will review and eliminate any video that is dark and unnoticeable. Blurry or poorly composed film will be kept.
BRIGHT & DARK: We will also attempt to brighten or darken scenes which are under or overexposed.
COLOR CORRECTION: We will color correct areas which are saturated with color. Different reasons can cause a film to look red or bluish in color. It could be the type of film, the chemicals they used to develop or simply the age film. We will attempt to make adjustments for the colors to appear normal.
SPEED CONTROL: We change the film speed to a normal setting. Occasionally film cameras were not set properly and recorded at an incorrect speed causing films to appear too fast as they ran through the projector. Some home movies look similar to the old vaudeville comedies.
TITLES: The first opening title is included with your order. Additional titles are always nice to include before each film reel to describe the years and events. Titles are $2 each.
FILM CLEANING: We use a lubricant to clean and protect your films. Cleans dust particles, seals scratches and prevents further damage. Preserves your films by allowing the film to become flexible and not brittle. Allow your films to look their best before being transferred. .10 cents per foot of film.
MUSIC SELECTION: If you decide to include audio with your films we can provide instrumental music.
DVD MENU: Each DVD is designed with a menu which you can PLAY ALL the films or you also have the option of selecting the REEL SELECTION menu and choose a particular reel.
