Testimonials
& Examples



Film Restoration - Too Dark & Color Correction


"Thank you ever so much for the great job you did in transposing our home reel to reel family movies to DVD.
The quality is indeed excellent.
We can now enjoy watching our home movies taken some 40 years ago by simply popping the DVD's into our DVD player.
It's also very comforting to know that we have now preserved clips from our family past for our children's children to enjoy."
Alex A. - Mississauga, Ontario
