Our client, Jon, had transferred the videos to capture the memories of his children growing up but what he got was so much more than that, he also got keepsake memories of numerous lost family members. This time he ordered three more digital copies of all of his video transfers on flash drives.

baby takes the cake, frisky older man.avi

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93snnhVnfNM
From an 8mm film transfer that we did for a client. This clip shows a baby "taking the cake" and "eating it too". Then it shows some young people dancing. Keep your eye out for the older gentleman who is a bit frisky. Many films are silent like this one. We can add our royalty free music for no charge to you.

our equipment for reviewing old media

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIQmKuTvAjA
Want to preview your old media before you have them transferred? We have all sorts of VCRs, video cameras, reel-to-reel, 8-track, and record players that you can use in our Fort Collins store to preview your videos or old audio before you have us transfer it to digital for you. We also have a light table that you can use to look at negatives, slides and frames of old movie films. Not everyone wants to capture and preserve all the information on all of their old media. Do you really want that old TV show transferred? Do you really want hours and hours of your kid’s sporting events? Come in a review it before you have it transferred. If you are using the equipment ever so briefly there is no charge but if you decide to sit and stay for a spell we charge a low $15/hour equipment fee.

How To Clean Moldy 8mm Film

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWi7bw81H1I
This is a demonstration of how we cleaned a client's very moldy 8mm film. We used a can of air and some film cleaning solution and a cloth. How did the films look? Not that great. The images were quite damaged but when the footage is of family you will keep any images that you can find. We transferred them all to several copies of a DVD for her. Another memory preserved at Leave A Legacy, Fort Collins and Denver

Transferred a video about a school shooting on video tape to a DVD for a training class for the Berthoud Fire Department. He made me sad just telling me about it. I sure hope the video helps prevent it from happening again.

David brought in an old professionally produced film on 16mm film. He was the producer! It was the story of a blacksmith who was a dying breed but still doing his trade. We transferred it in high definition and cleaned it for him. We saved it all to a blu-ray disc and DVD.

Sandy brought in a disc that she needed DVD copies of and also wanted digital files of it on a flash drive. She had taken it to FedEx Kinkos. They tried for 2 days and said they couldn’t do it. We copied it for her on the spot in 5 minutes. If it had been one that was difficult to copy we have several other methods to get it but this one was easy.

Jim brought in his old family home movies into Leave A Legacy in a metal tackle box. Last time he brought his films in a Mr. Coffee box. I love these unique containers. We will give him digital files of each of his films.
