  • Film Cleaning & Colour Correction

    Old cine film stock does have the tendancy to fade over time. Film fading can occur naturally despite good careful storage of your old cine films.

    What is film fading? The dyes used on the film surface tend to fade away, usually the blues and greens , making the film look very pink in appearance. 16mm colour film tends to be the most effected by colour fade.

    As part of our standard cine film transfer service, charged at our standard rate, we always colour correct in post to bring the film colour back to normal levels. It is not always possible to bring the film back 100%, however we always do our best to provide the best customer viewing experience.

    Film cleaning is an optional service which is charged at £0.05p per foot of cine film. Cleaning film using industry standard film cleaning products can reduce help heavy scratches and make light scratches less noticable. Cleaning will remove dirt and dust from the film. If there is a soundtrack then this is also cleaned at the same time. Cleaning also help with the long term storage of your original material. Having your cine film cleaned ensures that the transfer will be as good as it can be using our film transfer service.

Testimonials & reviews of our film and video transfer service

... Dear Claire I just wanted to say thank you so much for the cine transfer DVD etc. My Dad (and Mum) were so thrilled and it really made the day for him! I thought you might like to put this as feedback on the website because i was so worried entrusting films that contain such precious memories which do not belong to me to people i do not know, i needn't have worried! Being able to bring and collect them was helpful and you completed them so quickly! Once again thank you. ...

Lesley Charnick

... I asked Excelsior Film & Video to transfer my old Super-8 cine films to a format suitable for my home computer. Their service and communication were excellent but I wasn't prepared for the impact of the finished films. The quality is simply amazing. Thank you Excelsior, a fully professional and affordable service. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to revisit films that remain forgotten in the attic...... ...

Mr P K Joyce

... Hi, i have just received the cine films and dvd back and would like to thank you very much for the great job you have done and the speed in which you did it! I can not believe how amazing it is, to see these images on dvd will bring enormous enjoyment to my husbands grandfather on his 90th birthday next week. I have passed on your details to a friend who has about eight films, some with sound, because she never knew this could be done! Thank you once again, ...

Annette Bosher

Margaret Bloom

... I've just had some super 8mm transfered by you (Ben Hall) I just wanted to say thanks so much, it looks & sounds great. The footage on these reels are of me taking my first steps, grandparents who have past away & just general priceless footage of my family that I haven't seen in about 20 years! So yeah, thanks & I really appreciate the hand delivery of the rushes / DV - I was pretty nervous sending it by post. ...

Ben Hall

... Just to let you know that I have received the DVD today, I would like to add that I have been very impressed with the quality and the professionalism of service I have been provided. I do happen to have a great amount of more films(maybe 40) that I would like to have converted to DVD. Would it be okay to send all of them in one bulk to you? Please let me know ...... ...


... This e-mail is to thank you and your team for a wonderful transfer done of my family's memories which were on 8mm cine tapes onto DVD. Watching the DVDs brought back instant flashback to all members of our family and rekindled those lost moments in our minds. ...

Sanjay K. Oza

... Just wanted to say thanks for converting my cine films to DVDs - though I havent yet looked at them all, I'm delighted with what you've done in terms of quality, chaptering etc - all very much appreciated, right at the top end of what I'd hoped for, so thanks very much. ...
