Film Transfer

What Our Film Transfer Customers Are Saying…

This project was a major effort converting 16 hours of super 8 home movies to DVD.  This was a project I had hoped to do my self but I just never had time and my projector stopped working.   I could not be happier with the results.  The pictures are clear and bright and you relive some wonderful times with your family.  My DVD Transfer cleans the film and it really shows – the quality of the pictures are amazing!  I had hoped to receive some of the DVD’s before Christmas so I could show them on Christmas Day to my children and grandchildren and to my great surprise I received all of the DVDs. In fact, Mr. Nicholas Cinelli, the owner of MYDVD Transfer called me to let me know they were sending the DVDs and he had watched them on his 65 inch flat screen TV.  He said we would be very pleased and he was absolutely right!  In closing, I could not be happier with Angie’s List.  I have used them multiple times and the people Angie’s List recommended have never disappointed me!  I will definitely use My DVD Transfer again!”
“That worked out great. Great quality, clear and easy to use DVD menus. It brought back a lot of memories. I was impressed with how clear of an image they were able to get from our old movie reels. They sent me an email within a couple of days that I purchased it so that’s appreciated.”
“Nick was very helpful and responsive.  He did a great job and returned the originals safely packed along with the DVDs in a separate shipment.  He does all the work in house and provides an exemplary service.  If you want someone to look after your old movies and videos and not just “process” them, would recommend Nick.”
