How to Order

If you cannot make it into our shop simply post your cine film to us - don't forget to include your instructions, address and telephone number. On receipt of your work we will call you, confirm your instructions, and take payment by credit card over the phone..


Editable AVI Computer Files

Instead of an encoded DVD, you may wish to order an an editable computer file for home editing. We can supply you with an editable AVI file for editing on PCs and MACs. An uncompressed AVI file is 13gb per hour. We ask customers to provide an external hard drive or large capacity USB stick for this purpose.

There is no extra charge for this service.

Extra DVDs - £5

Although DVDs last a lifetime without deterioration in quality one scratch or scuff mark will render it unplayable. For this reason we strongly advise you to order an extra DVD back up copy of your cine transfer work - the cost is only £5 per 2 hour DVD.

Time and Length

The easiest way to find out both the running time and the film footage of 16mm film is to measure the diameter of the reel

  • 3" diameter - 50ft, 2 minutes
  • 5" diameter - 200ft, 8 minutes
  • 7" diameter - 400ft, 15 minutes
  • 9" diameter - 800ft, 30 minutes
  • 12" diameter - 1200ft, 45 minutes

Please note that running times are approximate as they depend on the frame rate


All cine film that comes into our studios is assessed for damage and cleanliness, FREE OF CHARGE. Typically, films may need resplicing and a puff of compressed air to remove dust and hairs. In our experience, no serious cleaning is usually neccessary.

On occasion, cine film comes in smelling of vinegar - Vinegar Syndrome, or may be badly affected with mould and mildew. If this happens, we will contact you to discuss the options.
