We can process any and all outdated 8mm, 9.5mm & 16mm movie film.
At Film Rescue we give you the choice of a safest possible process (B&W negative) or an extremely high contrast color negative process (AN-6). We’re using only negative processes at this point because the reversal step to create a positive image, further exacerbates the issues that come with the aging of your film.
Please Note: All films processed here won’t project properly i.e. what is light will be dark and what is dark will be light. This is corrected during transfer as a positive image.
With the exception of Kodachrome type film (which can only be processed into B&W negative), 16mm and double-8 films, we do have the ability to run most long expired super-8 and single-8 color films in color processes. However, it is often inadvisable, as you risk losing any kind of image at all or having a lower quality image than you would have had in B&W. For example, based on our tests, film requiring ME-4 process is unlikely to turn out when processed in color. More here
Keep in mind that the films we process are generally decades past the “process-before” date. We do the very best job anyone is able to. Results range from fairly good, to extremely poor, to no image at all. We’re using extremely well tested processes, the best of the best scanning technology along with an Adobe Premier edit to improve the image as much as possible. The quality we output would be very difficult to exceed.
