Each individual frame is passed through a projection gate and picture is taken. Then all individual frames are put into special software that converts the frames into a movie. It is a solid, smooth and flicker free capture by which a higher quality transfer is produced.

I never thought that I’d ever hear that record again. I’ve been playing it in the car to work and picking up the kids from school. They are ready to kill me! Love it!

These films have brought myself and my mother closer than ever. It has also allowed my students to get a first hand view of what it was like growing up in the 60’s. Thanks for the memories
