Pricing structure costs and cost example

Cine film transfer pricing

For all film archives, whether 8mm, Super 8mm, 9.5mm or 16mm, there are two elements to the final total. “Capture” and “Presentation”.

The cost of “Capture” is based on how many feet of film you have in 50ft. multiples.

The cost of “Presentation” depends on whether you want to have Self-Edit computer files or have playable discs (DVD or Blu-Ray) and how long your archive is in hours.

Full DPX capture – If you want your archive saved to industry standard DPX files in HD @720GB or 2k @1TB or 4k @4TB per hour please give me a call. It would typically add £64 to the cost of 800ft of film in full 2K.

a) You are more than welcome to call me to go through what you have and I can give you a quote.

b) If you want to bring the films to me, here in Swindon, we can go through your archive together and I will give you an accurate quote before you leave.

c) You can post the films to me and I will give you an accurate quote before any work starts. You are under no obligation to proceed and I will return your films to you if you decide not to go ahead.
