What About Cleaning Films?


May 14, 2011 by admin

Before beginning a conversion and transfer process of home movie film to DVD we consider cleaning our client’s 8mm movie films using a process developed especially for movie film. We only do so when it looks like the movie films would benefit from it and we are certain and confirm that the given movie film will not react adversely to the process.

The need to clean the movie film is not particularly common. If the movie films have been stored as open reels they may have collected dust and lint that a cleaning would help with. If stored in a film reel can or Kodak box then it is unlikely that any cleaning would be beneficial. There have been times, however, when after capturing a given reel of movie film we were able to see that the reel would benefit from cleaning.
