Our process

Transfer your old home movies to DVD

  • Transfer to a Digital File

  • Transfer to DVD/Blu-ray

  • Transfer to YouTube/Vimeo/Dropbox Etc.

  • You can book additional editing time

We use state-of-the-art equipment, the latest in film transfer technology, producing the most beautiful picture quality available. This equipment, up until now, has only been available to film archivists and Hollywood filmmakers. With a full-time staff of experienced editors, The Montage Maven can improve the quality of your fading films when you transfer them to Digital DVD or hard drive in standard definition or high definition. We will remove the blank spots and correct the colors, contrast, and brightness. Your DVD will include chapter points, menus, and background music. It is this attention to detail that sets us apart from the others.

Over time, movie film deteriorates. Not only will the projected picture fade, but the film itself can become brittle and snap. Digitizing and transferring your home movies to DVD will ensure that your memories will last a lifetime.

What’s Included with Your Home Movie Transfer

  • Cleaning

The tiniest speck of dust or dirt will look enormous on your TV screen. We clean all 8mm and Super 8mm movie film to assure you get the most precise picture possible.

  • Splicing

As your film gets older, the splices you may have applied years ago may not hold as well as they used to. Should those splices break, we will repair them (within reason) at no extra charge.

If you have three or more 50-foot reels, they will be spliced onto 200 or 400-foot reels. Each reel will be labeled, indicating which 50-foot reels have been spliced into it. Empty reels, with writing on them, will be returned.

  • Transfer & Monitoring

Trained technicians carefully monitor the entire transfer for picture framing and focus. Your film is digitally scanned, frame by frame, and captured in its entirety in high resolution directly to computer hard drive before going to our editing department for further enhancing.

  • Editing & Enhancement

Our editors view your entire transfer scene by scene, eliminating blank footage, and enhancing brightness, contrast, and color on our exclusive transfer system.

  • Opening Title

We begin your home movie production with your personalized title (Example: “The Smith Family Memories”). This same title will be imprinted on the face of your DVD.

  • Background Music

We will add background hi-fi Dolby digital music to the entire length of the transfer. This can be from our library of family-oriented, easy listening music or you can provide your CD to bring your movies to life for an additional fee.

  • Conversion Process

Your film will be converted to a file, DVD or Blu-ray utilizing VBR (Variable Bitrate) encoding technology which produces an overall higher and more consistent quality level than Constant Bit Rate encoding.

  • Custom DVD Imprint

The same Opening Title that you choose will be custom printed on the face of your DVD.
