CinePost has been transferring film for over a decade and we have a great deal of experience with converting 35mm film to digital. Primarily our work with 35mm film has been with restoring feature films; however we have also helped out with student projects, art films, and newer film that simply needed a high quality digital scan.
Many other facilities turn to CinePost for help due to our ability to handle such a wide range of 35mm formats including nitrate and film with optical or separate magnetic audio soundtracks. We have transferred many feature films for Turner Classic Movies and created broadcast masters which have aired on their TCM network. If you are in need of transferring 35mm film to digital CinePost can ensure that your project goes smoothly from start to finish. We offer more than professional film scanning. Your film will be inspected, cleaned, and repaired if needed prior to being transferred. Our Rank Cintel Turbo works together with our Wetgate Dirt & Scratch Concealment System to provide unparallel results that must be seen to be believed. With older film, and even a good bit of new film, there will be dirt and debris and unsightly scratches. The Wetgate system is able to provide real-time cleaning while simultaneously reducing the appearance of scratches. In some cases we may be able to eliminate their appearance completely. In addition to scratch concealment our 35mm film to digital transfers benefit from the attention of our experienced colorists who use an industry standard DaVinci Color Correction System to balance your levels and compensate for any issues such as fading, deterioration, lab processing errors, or simply to sweeten the picture and give it more visual impact. If needed, we can use tools like Digital Video Noise Reduction and detailed scene-to-scene digital color correction on the finished video.
We are able to deliver your footage in professional formats such as Digital Betacam, 10-bit Uncompressed AVI/MOV, ProRes SD and ProRes 422 HQ (High Definition at 1920 x 1080). Contact the experts at CinePost to discuss how we can contribute to the success of your next 35mm film to digital project.
