Save My Films uses a true frame-by-frame transfer process for your films. Each frame is individually scanned and processed, then converted to a video format of your choice. We scan each frame of your film using only cool LED light sources–this means your film is never in danger of burning or melting from heat exposure, such as what occurs from the hot projector lamps of the past. Unlike typical transfer companies that use projectors and 1CCD telecine camera equipment, Save My Films uses high-quality HD cameras to image off the sharper, emulsion side of the film. The results are crisp, clean, color-rich films just like the originals. If you were searching for film transfers near me, look no further!
DVD or digital files provide exceptional picture quality and durability over videotape formats, which can degrade over time. By transferring your videotaped content to high-quality, long-lasting DVDs or digital files, you can relive your special memories and be sure they will be safe for years to come. Once transferred to DVD or digital files, your film will be much easier to edit, share, and upload to video-sharing sites like Youtube. If you were searching for video transfers near me, look no further!
Save My Films takes great care to ensure the best results in media conversion and migration. Film transfers are one of our main services. We use a frame-by-frame film transfer system with HD imaging. Your film is cleaned prior to transfer, then loaded into a custom-built telecine transfer system that is equipped with LED illumination. LED lighting produces almost no heat and is perfectly color balanced, which ensures that old, delicate film is safely transferred with excellent color quality. Each frame of film is scanned into a separate digital image. Once this long sequence of images are in digital form, we apply the right speed to ensure your film plays back at the same speed in which it was shot. Finally, once the image is perfect, it's converted to the file format of your choice or transferred to DVD. We also offer uploading formats for online video hosting.

Save My Films is based in sunny Portland, Oregon (well, it's sunny here a few days out of the year, at least). We
were founded in 2003 as an outlab service center to many of the local photo development shops. We provided services that many smaller
photo labs were unable to provide.
We continued to grow and expanded to include large corporate customers and government clients, such as the Department of Energy. We found there was a vast amount of media sitting in boxes on shelves, basements, and garages that people wanted to convert to new usable formats. We provide the talent, equipment, and knowledge to help customers migrate their old media to new formats. Films, video tapes, extinct file formats, slides and all the rest–all find new life as stable, usable digital media.
We handle everything from a few rolls of 8mm film in a shoebox to large library archives. We give your media new life by moving it forward. Contact us for a detailed description of services and a clear roadmap to save your aging content. Get more out of your media with Save My Films' host of media services.
Turnaround time is about 1-2 weeks, depending on the size of the order. Rush orders can be accommodated under certain circumstances; however, additional processing fees may apply. Contact us for more information.
We use advanced film scanning equipment that scans each frame of your film at high definition. We protect your film by never running it through a projector, which can burn or tear delicate film.
Whether you have film, video, or audio, we recommend digital files to archive your content (e.g., .mov, .avi, .mp4, etc.). We can provide DVDs upon request, but we’re urging our customers away from legacy formats and toward storing digitally.
Place your media in a plastic, reclosable bag (like Ziploc). Place these in a box and pack with newspaper or dry packing material to ensure everything inside the box is secured.
We save your digital files on a memory stick that either you can provide or we can supply.
This memory stick will be added to the box of media that you originally sent to us–all original packaging will be reused. We will contact you to arrange a pick-up time or ship it back to you if you live outside of Portland, OR area.
If you have questions or would like to get started on a project, let us know!
