“... 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. ...”
“... 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...... ...”

“... 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’t 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, ...”
“... Many thanks for the DVDs which are excellent and much enjoyed by the family. Your quality is very good – way above the other two studios that I tried. Also your service is very fast. I am most impressed. ...”
