Thank you for you excellent, professional and faultless service.

A Cine to DVD Transfer Experience


Converting old cine films to DVD is something that perhaps we all mean to organise one day but which we never seem to get round to doing. When finally making the effort to climb into the loft, empty the old boxes and retrieve the many reels of dusty film it is important to choose a quality company who will not only take care of your treasured footage but also produce first class results. The transfer of the films is something that should only need to be done once and so is something which must be done perfect first time.


The internet is crowed with companies with impressive web sites and who all offer a first class service using state of the art technology, however all is not what it seems.


Having selected from the Internet, a Cine to DVD company in Bristol I spoke to a representative there, as the pricing structure on the web site was rather complex, i.e. extra cost for Image Enhancement, Adding Music, Providing AVI Editable format etc. I chose a transfer service to include Image Enhancement and a copy in AVI format and packed up my films ready for collection. I specifically asked for the films to be returned, as by default this company stores them, in hindsight this turned out to be one of my better decisions. The total quoted cost for the service was £193.80 for approximately 950 feet of Super 8 cine film.


A few days later I received my original films and a couple of DVDs containing the transfers, both discs were in a plain simple cases one disc having ‘AVI’ handwritten on it, the other blank. With great eagerness I slotted the plain disc into my machine and pressed ‘Play’ and was immediately disappointed.


The footage, which I had paid to be enhanced, was washy, the images were not sharp and there seemed to be a darker ring area on the outside of the frame. Further viewing of the transferred material showed a rather squashed image appearance and several instances of ‘flickering’.


I contacted the company and was asked to send details by email which I did. Eventually, following several subsequent emails, I received the following comments back.


  • No one else has come back other to thank us for the good work
  • The footage was not in a brilliant condition
  • The film was transferred by one our most senior technicians
  • Jumping is due to poor sprockets and there is just nothing we can do
  • I am 100% certain that we could do no better
  • Maybe you were over expectant of the results
  • I can assure you that nobody could do a better transfer
  • Even if we did it again we would get the same results
  • Given my disappointment with the results from the Bristol company I decided to search the internet again and came across ‘Timeless Moments’ and spoke to their very helpful, and indeed knowledgeable Ian Litchfield. I explained the problems and the disappointing results I had received and Ian kindly offered to take a look. Having other films to transfer I packed these up, together with the original film and the original converted DVD disc all of which Ian organised to be collected. A few days later Ian contacted me and explained some of the issues with the original transfer and provided a sample comparison transfer which I was able to view via a link he sent me.



    As can be seen from the above link the difference in the transfer quality is truly remarkable. Based on these impressive results I gave instructions for my cine films to be re-converted by Timeless Moments. The ‘all in’ costing structure used by Timeless Moments is so simple, 15p per foot which includes a digital copy, digital remastering, adding music and professional packaging. The cost of converting and returning my 950 foot film, using Timeless Moments, was £152.50, over £40 cheaper than the Bristol company.


    Timeless Moments are used by television companies and are recommend by Which, because of this excellent reputation they can, as a result, be fairly busy which can sometimes mean a longer lead time to schedule your conversion. However when you receive your DVDs you will not be disappointed. The DVDs come in a smartly designed presentation case using still footage from selected frames taken from your film. The DVD has a printed label also taken from a frame from your film.


    When I played the DVD I have to say I was so impressed with the results, especially when compared with my experience from the Bristol company. The music chosen to accompany the film was a perfect addition and really complemented the footage. The quality of the image conversion was excellent with good rich colour and sharpness of image. Importantly, the simple technique used by Timeless Moments of playing the film backwards for conversion and then reversing again onto DVD had removed the awful flickering areas caused by damaged sprockets on the original film.


    Timeless Moments offer a friendly, helpful and impressive service with quality of end results to match, all this at a price that can beat most competitors who offer a similar if not greatly inferior service. You only want to convert your films once and also be confident that your treasured films will be handled with care, Timeless Moments will certainly deliver to expectation. So if you have been considering converting your films, don’t delay and risk your footage deteriorating, forget any other company and send them immediately to Timeless Moments for professional and faultless results – they will certainly not disappoint.


    Interesting, I sent a reply back to the comments made by the Bristol company, informing them that better results can be obtained elsewhere. I also suggested a total refund may be in order – needless to say I have had no reply.

    Hello Ian

    We have returned from our holiday to find a wonderful DVD waiting for us at the local sorting office. It has brought back lots of memories for us all, especially for my Mother, Dad died over twenty years ago and she loved seeing him again enjoying his Grandchildren.

    You must know you give people a lot of happiness and I thank you for ours.

    Hi Ian

    I just want to thank you and your team for the DVD which was delivered yesterday. My Mam had found the reels/tapes and didn't have a clue what was on them so it was nice to see footage of my siblings when they were young and other family relatives, including pets, that we have sadly lost over the years.

    However, the most amazing experience was hearing my brother's voice again!! He very suddenly passed away 3 years ago at the age of 46 and although we have hundreds of photos, we didn't have anything with his voice recorded. To hear his voice again was truly AMAZING and although my Mam and I cried, for the greater part they were tears of happiness. I can't wait to show his two children!!

    Once again, thank you so much. You have no idea how much pleasure you have brought to my family.

    Kind regards

    Hi Ian,

    I have just watched the avi file you created for me and I wanted to let you know I am absolutely thrilled with it. This is the most special one to me, to be honest, because it is of my parents wedding, and all of my grandparents are on the film who unfortunately have all passed away. Its so lovely to see them all on such a happy occasion, and amazing for my son to be able to see moving pictures of his great grandparents for the first time.

    Thank you so very much you have made my day and I can't wait to show my parents tomorrow.

    What an amazing job you have done preserving all these priceless memories for my family, I am very very grateful.

    Kind regards,

    Subject: Sahara film - Final proof disc


    Perfect! Superb! Not much else to say! But I'll try ...

    The disc plays straight off on the Mac; no glitches. It defaults to DVD Player, all the buttons work, chapter jumps, the lot; it also plays fine on VLC (albeit VLC needs a nudge to get to get to the main film: 'Playback > Title 1 > Title 2' etc, but pretty intuitive and I can't see anyone needing this now anyway.).

    On the Sony Bravia the sharpness is astonishing (the Mac's DVD Player, I think, dumbs down to a lower resolution to get easier-managed files - or some such goings on!)

    You have tweaked the sound precisely right and I feel sure no-one with A1 hearing would complain on a voiceover where you can actually hear the consonants - a rarity these days where everyone except the best newsreaders seems to mumble! The slightly extended distance-to-go overlays are just right; you've got time to take the diagram on board, read the caption and jump back to the map to confirm where you are in the journey.

    The presentation is excellent - the DVD-face printing is better than I dared hope and much enhanced by the glossy finish.

    Thank you most sincerely for your efforts. I really appreciate it - more so for you labouring recently under the onslaught of a cold!

    Let me get my thoughts together and I'll contact you on final numbers, packaging etc.

    All the best for now,

    We did use some of the footage from the reel that you transferred for us, and it did look great.

    Really felt you went above and beyond the call of duty and we will undoubtedly hire your services again should need arise. I know you're a Hailwood enthusiast so am sending you a DVD copy of the finished film in the next few days. Keep an eye open for it in the post.

    I got your parcel on Friday and I've backed up the film onto my pc's hard drive. I started going through it reel by reel this evening and noting what's on each. It all looks smashing  thank you very much - not an easy job judging by the state of some of it.

    I've had a look at windows movie maker and I think it will do all I want or need to do.  I've also found the south east's film archive, it's based at Brighton university. Once I know what I've got I'll ask them if they'd like it.

    Have just had a call from my brother and he is absolutely delighted with the DVD.  Really impressed by the quality of the production, and more than a little emotional.  Thought you would like to know. Many thanks to you and “the team”.





    Dear Ian,

    All arrived safely this morning. Initial reaction - Excellent!
    Many thanks

    Margaret Pepper


    Dear Ian

    I have now had time to view quite a lot of the 5,500 feet of cine film which you transferred to DVD.

    I’m sure you would like to know that I am delighted with the results you and your team have achieved. The quality of the images is very good, bearing in mind the original shortcomings of the film you had to work with, some of which went back more than 75 years. You managed to interpret my intentions very successfully so that my father’s films fitted nicely on a 2 x DVD pack and so did my films; and the titles couldn’t be better. I thought the music accompaniment was pretty good despite the reservations you may have had when the length of film exhausted your stock of Egyptian and Far Eastern music! And finally the labelling of the DVDs and the cases successfully presents and completes a very professional job.

    It took me a long time getting round to initiating the project so when there were minor delays at your end I was quite happy to sit back and endorse your philosophy that quality should not be sacrificed for speed. I was also grateful for your advice and explanations in the early stages before placing an order.

    Many thanks to you all at Timeless-Moments.

    Kind Regards

    Robert Rueg



    Hi Iain

    I just wanted to say how happy my Dad was with the films. I also got to show it to my Grandad (the chap who filmed most of it) before he passed away last week - it also really seemed to make him happy.

    Thanks again.

    Hayley Williams




    Thank you very much for my project back. I am really pleased with the results and considering the poor quality of the original films I think you have practically worked a miracle! The extra enhancements to the DVD really do make a difference to the finished product and are well worth paying the extra.

    Many thanks again for all your hard work

    Best wishes

    Sorry, Ian,

    My mum had a very minor stroke just before Easter and so I’ve had my mind on other things. However she seems fine now – completely recovered as far as I can tell. I took the DVD up to her and she was utterly delighted as she watched it. I’ll send off the cheque today.

    Ian The parcel arrived today and I am very pleased with the result - the quality is much better 1000% and the music does add to it, well done. I am glad I got the extra drive too, I could do a shortened version when I am feeling strong.

    Thank you for all the attention to detail.

    Hi Ian

    Package received this morning. All seems well. Many thanks for the trouble you have taken with this project. We are really grateful for the work you have done.

    Best regards

    Hi Ian

    Just received the DVD.

    Thank you so much it is wonderful everything is just great, the memories it has brought back.

    What a wonderful job you have done, the music as well I cannot thank you enough.

    The photo you have chosen for the cover is brilliant me and my mum, she now lives in a nursing home as she has Alzheimer’s and does not remember much at all.

    So thank you so much for the wonderful work I am so pleased, I would certainly recommend your work to everyone.I cannot wait till my father and daughter see this too.

    I have two more very large reels I will send as soon as i can afford it.

    Thank you so much

    Hi Ian,

    My pleasure to recommend you. I hope you are able to help.

    We are both well and enjoying the return of our younger son (33) and his wife after 9 years in Dubai.

    best wishes to you are your family. If I can help get you more business I will without hesitation.

    kind regards,

    Barrie Walker




    Just a quick note to thank you for the DVD of my fathers cine films which arrived safely on Thursday as promised. He is absolutely delighted. We are all very impressed with the excellent presentation and great production, with a very tasteful and appropriate choice of music for each reel. Overall, a highly professional service and product.

    It is something of a leap of faith when selecting someone from the internet and entrusting them with unique family memories, but you have certainly won my confidence and can expect some further reels from me shortly. I have also been singing your praises so may have a few more enquiries from Jersey for your services.

    Many thanks once again.


    James Michel



    My wife and I have viewed all the film now and we are delighted with it. I had forgotten that she always looked as though she had only just had her hair done! It is noticeable how the picture colour quality improved as the film progressed through the years.

    I’ll be in contact when I get the next lot of cine reels ready for you.

    Regards, John Reynolds.



    Dear Ian

    Thank you for the DVDs which we received last week. We congratulate you on doing a first class job with third class amateur material! We spent an enjoyable 2 hours watching and remembering the fun we had with our hobbies of boating and fire engine owners group rallies.

    Kind regards

    Pat and Ken Castell



    Hi Ian

    Just to let you know that mum really enjoyed looking at the dvd's, it made her day, seeing what she described as 'the old times'.

    The second copy will be sent to her friend Joyce, who we met 50 years ago on holiday, so I expect between them they will be able to identify which holiday camp we were at in the films.

    Thank you once again.

    Regards Marilyn Foster



    Dear Ian,

    Apologies for the delayed reply - we received the DVDs successfully. They all looked fantastic! We have spent the last month editing in to a short film for my Grandmothers 100th birthday - hence the delayed response! It was a great surprise for relatives to see the film after such a long time!!

    We now have an Elmo projector (and Eumig camera) that are redundant and so want to get rid of them to create some space in our flat! Do you know of anywhere good to sell this kind of thing? We may just try ebay, but thought that you may know of somewhere specialist?

    Many thanks again for the film and quick turnaround - you provide a great service!
    best wishes
    Natasha Larke



    Hello Ian,

    When we got back to Bedford with our precious cargo of films and DVD's yesterday we straight away put the first one on to view the results.

    The colour was great and the way you have dealt with the lights and darks has made a fantastic difference to these old films.
