We used to want to borrow your cine film or video

Did you know that some of our most fascinating programmes were made with expertly restored cine film, including amateur 8mm cine film or video footage?

Cine film

Working with a specialist Company, we transfered precious cine film images into a digital format. Then we edited those images just as though we’d filmed them with a modern digital video camera.

We corrected exposure problems, took out all those jumpy bits where the film was spliced and removed colour faults – even when the film had faded or gone completely red. We then added authentic digital stereo sound so realistically that you’d think it was recorded along with the cine images, all those years ago.

Take a look at this video clip, showing you how this was done.  Make sure you have the sound turned on.


Using the same colour correction, stabilisation and image sharpening techniques as we did for cine film, we could make some hand-held video look like it was shot on a tripod.  We could also replace defective sound in the same way that we added authentic sound to silent cine film.


All the time that your cine film is in your attic or on a shelf, it is deteriorating.  Physically, it is becoming brittle and its chemical composition may also be changing. Video tapes, whether analogue or digital, can also deteriorate to the point where they cannot be viewed or copied any more.

So, don’t delay in getting it transferred.  We can recommend https://www.savethosememories.co.uk/

Want to make your own airliner video?

We still have our amazing library of vintage airliner sounds and the latest editing equipment.  If you would like us to use that to create an ‘Avion’ type video with your own footage, talk to me at howard@avionvideo.com
