Good morning Steve and Wendy

Just a quick note to thank you for transferring our video tape onto DVD. The quality is superb and my wife and I are delighted that we have been able to preserve 15 years of precious memories covering the time when our children were growing up.

We have found watching these films back after so long to be riveting and emotional and definitely money well spent.

Once again thanks very much for your help and good luck with your family!`

Phil Merry

Many thanks for DVDs, you were right, they arrived before 1pm today (must have caught the first plane to Shetland this morning).
Thanks for good service.

Hi Stephen

Just to say thank you so much for such a great job and for getting it all back to me in time. The quality of the cine film to DVD transfer far exceeded my expectations and made the perfect birthday present for the subject of the films; she was really appreciative - as were all her family, especially as they had not viewed the films for almost 40 years. She has asked me to get some others transferred now, so no doubt I will be contacting your company again shortly.

Thanks again.



Dear Stephen

Many thanks for transferring my in-laws old cine films to DVD. They are much better quality than I imagined and the family were in stitches watching themselves from 40 odd years ago.
I understand you had machine breakdowns yet still managed to get them back to me before Christmas, many thanks indeed.
Now all I need to do is work my way through several hundred 35mm slides of my own.......

Best Regards,
Jerry Vincent



I received the cine film conversion DVD and film this morning, its amazing so many happy memories,especially for the boys to see their young father who sadly died in 1996 aged 45.

Thank you karen mauerhoff

Hi Stephen

Just a little message to say Thank You for the great job done to create and transfer Home Cine Films - we have already enjoyed a few hours viewing & re-viewing.
We will certainly recommend any new business without any hesitation.

Once again many thanks

Warren D'Rosario

Many thanks for the films & data files, I'm very pleased with the
results. I've sorted out the rest and plan to bring them over to you in
a month or so. Is there someone onsite during the week or is it best for
me to check with you the day before we plan to come.

Hi Stephen,

I am writing to say a massive thank you for transferring all my cine film to dvd. The results are superb & it was wonderful to watch over 40 years of the history of my family on film. My sister & I were so excited as we sat & watched them. The quality was amazing considering how old the films were. I have recommended you to a friend so they should be contacting you soon.

I hope transferring my slides to DVD is going well too. Once again I can't wait to see the final results. Just a reminder that I would like two copies of each dvd please. How long do you think it will take?

Once again a big thank you for doing such a wonderful job.

Amanda Parker


Dear Sir

We have just watched cine film conversion to DVD of 8mm film, its fantastic, thank you for what you have done, I just wish we had come to see you five years ago, do I owe you any more money.

Do you know any contacts at the national film archive as certainly the order footage is of the early 1960's


Dove Tail Trailers


Dear Sir,

Just like to say how very pleased I am with the results of the two standard eight cine films you transferred
onto DVD for me. The picture quality is quite outstanding considering these films are now the best part of 50 years old. Many Thanks

Neil Rolfe

My mum had a very happy 90th. birthday thanks to you. The 20 rolls of 8mm film that my Dad took 30 years ago that had laid in the cupboard for 15 years since he died renewed all her fondest memories.
Excellent reproduction and title display format made easy DVD viewing.An excellent service and didn't break the bank. More reels I have found since are on the way!

Jim Gilbey,Essex.


Hi Stephen

We are really pleased with the cine to DVD transfer. It has brought back many happy childhood memories and we are looking forward to my parents reaction in December when we give it to them on their 50th wedding anniversary.
Let's hope our own super 8s are as good.
Sandra and Eddie Parsons

I just had to email to thank you for a prompt, brilliant and value for money service. The transfer of my old (1962) cine to mini DV was just brilliant, the quality was better than I could have expected.

Michael Sprince


Dear Stephen

both the sound and picture was excellent and the
service fast and efficient"

"Received my VHS tape and DVD which you produced from the 40 year-old 8mm cine film I sent you.

The results were superb - beyond all expectation and I shall be sending you the rest of the cash I have discovered for
transforming to usable and long-lasting modern formats"

Many thanks !

Dear Stephen
I just just got your package and the conversion looks great so thank you very much! Do you recall if these reels were 25' or 50'? I have a number of others that I would like doing, so as soon as I've got them together, I'll be in touch.

Hi Stephen & Wendy,
Just wanted to say a big thankyou to you for sorting my transfers out last week! - we got them on Saturday and the arrangements all went perfectly with my old man suitably surprised!
You did a great job of indexing them and getting them all in some kind of chronological order, which I was not expecting and was fantastic, and I was also impressed by the quality, despite my parents' ageing tv set!


Hello Stephen,
Disks have arrived and i've seen some of the films. Nice transfer, thanks.
No need to reply.
Regards Peter

Your DVD and my film, re invoice 923 arrived safely today. I am impressed

remaining reels of film.



Dear Stephen

I am delighted with the DVD’s of my films and for them many thanks.



Dear Steve

Thanks for doing a super job on the transfers to disc. We watched them last night and it brought a few memories back I can tell you. My days in The Royal Marines were tremendous. Anyway many thanks. Ken


Thanks for your work and your excellent service. I will be returning to
Australia soon and was wondering if you would be able to deal with any
other transfers etc. I usually send stuff to the states but would be
happy to send my business to you and pay for the postage.

I will recommend you to anyone.


Dear Stephen,
Just a quick note to say that the DVD is excellent.
You did a fantastic job of transferring the films of
my dad as a baby/child which were taken in the early
40's. He's going to love it!
Thank you very much.

Stephen/ Wendy

You recently transferred over 70 cine films onto DVD for me. Not looked at them all yet but the ones I have seen are perfect.

Thank you for all your help



Dear Stephen

In march you converted my cine films to DVD and for which I am very pleased.

Bill Anderson

Delighted with the DVD, many thanks for getting it here so swiftly!
Great results and very clear pictures


Good Morning!

This is just to confirm receipt of the DVDs from reels and many thanks. I have to say I was absolutely delighted with the DVDs which took me back to events of more than thirty years ago and I was especially amazed at the clarity of the colour after all that time. I will be sending some larger reels down so that you can advise me of cost.



Dear Steve,
I was delighted with the results of the conversion of my families 8mm and
16mm cine films into the mini DV format: It turned out better than the
originals .Thank you for the quick turn around as well. The thought of
sending all our precious memories stretching back 50 years, down almost the
entire length of the Country to a company I didn't know was more then a
little scary.
Thank you again for the very professional job and I will certainly recommend
Video Image Productions to all my friends.

Best Regards,
Keith Bichan.



Thank you. It was received safely, and a better job than I have had from some other places that I have tried. I shall be sending you some longer films after Christmas.

Alan Shepherd



I want to say how pleased I am with your digitisation of my home movies. Some reels were nearly 40 years old, so some fading was inevitable, yet they display better than the original - mainly due to the total absence of flicker and the even exposure over the whole frame.
Many thanks for your work - I now have many hours of work to edit, title and superimpose a sound track on my movies, but after that I have another batch of more recent film (only 20-27 years old!) which I will send you.

Yours sincerely

Keith Callaghan


Just wanted to say thanks for the job you did (a little while ago now) converting my Mum and Dad's old cine films to DVD. It's great that these memories are now preserved.

Thanks again
Richard Long



I’ve checked all the transfers, everything present and correct.
Thank you for your excellent work – it made our Christmas!

    Hi Stephen.

    You’re brilliant! The fact that we dumped loads of old cine film on you to try and locate our 40 year old wedding film. The fact that you patiently went through every one, which took so much time. The trouble that you took to produce a finished disc that we know will give great pleasure to all our family this weekend. Thank you so much!

    Ros and Graham Millett

      Hi Ros and Graham. Thank you for your kind words. Don’t Forget that if you can find the Original cine film we will transfer it to DVD for you. Many thanks Stephen

    Hi Stephen
    Have now seen all 88 cine films, much better quality than I ever imagined, certainly sharper than our old projecter produced & without the risk of damaging the films.

    Thanks for a prompt turn around and quality job will highly recommend

    Many Thanks
