Our Services


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!

How It Works

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.

The Reviews

See what our clients are saying about us and our promise!

Thanks for your good work and help in getting things done. Great knowledge of video and video editing. My 'go-to' guy for things I can't figure out.

Gerald Blucher Owner, Video Services

We've used for many years and always had excellent results. I'm always pleased to tell my customers that their work is entrusted to a seasoned professional with whom we have had quite a bit of experience. When creative solutions are required, when personal service is a priority, when the material in question is irreplaceable and precious, is the best choice in labs.

Save My Films has provided excellent film and video transfer services for our business for the past 8 years. They have always been willing to do what is needed to accommodate our customers. I would highly recommend them for transfer services.

About Us

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.


The prices listed are a guide to help you develop a budget. With larger orders, a short consultation may be required to determine a price structure that will work best for your budget and timeline. The form of your content and the ways in which it is processed can influence the overall cost of the work; if you are unsure about what you have or need help determining what you want, please contact us.
