Can someone recommend a good and inexpensive film to video transfer house?

The last place I used was The Tape House in NYC they were the only place in NYC with a super8 head for there Rank Cintel...They charged $600.00 an hour back in 1991...

Thanks

Carl,

Try Spectra Film & Video.

They offer some really affordable rates for the quality of transfers they offer. I had them transfer 6 rolls of super 8 on their Rank Cintel for me and it came to only $148.50. I only requested a one-light but the colorist did a little color correction for me anyway and it came out looking great. Highly recommended!

Good luck,

Ray

Carl,

Try www.cinesound.net

Based in Minneapolis, they have a nice Marconi line CCD scanner that accepts Super8, 16/Super 16 and 35mm.

Spectra is hopefully the best part of Pro-8mm. Meaning former employees left Pro-8mm and started their own company, in part to offer a more nuturing environment for the beginning film maker, they they also handle professionals as well.

They're right down the street from Pro-8mm and Pro-8mm's alleged short ends and re-cans that magically become new when loaded into a Super-8 cartridge.

I'm currently saving my pennies for a workprinter.

Roger (moviestuff)is a great guy (at least he is on the forums here and abroad) <_< , One thing is for sure, If you buy from him your going to get good support and answers to all your q's.

I'm on a budget as well, but thats why I would rather save up and buy my own means of capturing. it may even make me some of that money on the side everybody likes so much.
