"You guys are amazing! Thank you so much! I finally got the chance to read this email as well as looking at all the transferred footage! Thank you so much for syncing! The quality in picture and audio is A+++++. I have more film to send, and will recommend DMG to the world! I'm here in NYC, and would you believe that I couldn't find a place that does this? Well, I did find one, and it was a disaster, thankfully my film was unharmed."

- Paul K. New York, NY

"So far, the results I've sampled have either met or exceeded my expectations. Good job! I expect to send in another batch for processing next year. Meanwhile, I'll start working with the files that just arrived."

- Allan F. Grasslands, CA

"I got my home movie 1080p transfers today and want to tell you how delighted I am. The difference between this transfer and the one I had previously done is monumental. Now I will be able to use the footage in a family history project I am working on. I will be sending more in the near future."

- John L. Skokie, IL

"We have received our hard drive with the transferred film and it really looks great. You did a fantastic job and the notes your team took on the condition of the film were right on. We did not know what to be expect as most of the film we sent was over 40 years old (some more than 50 years old). We will be presenting clips from these transfers to family over the holidays this year and I am sure everyone will be thrilled. Thanks very much for your professional service."

- David R. Rosedale, MD

"We are very pleased with the quality of the DVDs and hard drive. Finding two 14-inch reels of film returned to us was a surprise - we had no idea there were that many recordings. It is very beneficial to have the hard drive as my son is sorting the reels and putting them on our personal YouTube for different family members. Thanks for a great job."

- Carla R. Middleton, WI

"I hear so many crazy stories about people not getting what they had thought of ordering but your company is very trustworthy and provided me with high quality work items. I am very glad to find your company and it was a great experience from start to the end. The files are well organized so I can work with them using my Mac pro. Again, thank you very much for your service."

- Osami M. Staatsburg, NY

"You guys are great. Terrific quality. The quality is great. Were those 8mm movies really in color? I guess I remember those old days from the 1950s in black and white. Great job. I can't believe you actually captured that 16mm clip. That clip had to have been from the early 1940s and really is a family treasure."

- Ron M. Appalchin, NY

"The hard drive arrived today right on schedule. All is great. I transferred the files from the USB hard drive onto my own hard drive, so we're good to go. Thanks for your great service on these old films. My mother is turning 90 next month, so we're planning to edit all this down to a 15 or 20 minute video and show it at a birthday luncheon we're having for her. Thanks again. You can certainly use me for a reference for your potential customers if you like."

- John P. Easton, PA

"I have received and viewed the digital media. They look great!!"

- Warren F. Grayslake, IL

"We have had an opportunity to watch just a very small portion of the transfer, but I must say that it is of very fine quality and we are certainly pleased with your excellent work! We have another project that consists of my parents 8mm reels that dates back to the 1930s that I am in the process of bundling now and expect to send them to you sometime in the future, soon. Thanks again very much for your excellent work as you have certainly made our day!!"

- Merle K. Baton Rouge, LA

"I just received our 8mm movie transfers. I'm very pleased with the results. After researching many other services, I chose Debenham Media Group, because I found your website provided the clearest and most detailed information on the transfer process and what I could expect from your service. After reading the information on your website, I had much more confidence and trust that you would handle our precious home movies with care and provide us with high quality transfers. Although much of our film was in poor condition, the Blu-ray and hard drive files look better than I ever remember the projected images looking. Thank you very much for doing such an outstanding job."

- Alan W. Wilsonville, OR

"I received the hard disc drive on Saturday. It arrived without damage and everything looked great considering the shape the film was in. Thanks for everything and I look forward to getting more film transferred in the near future."

- Larry G. Rio Rancho, NM

"I can't say a big enough THANK YOU!! My film was old, but you managed to transfer it. I did receive the note stating that it had mold, dirt, dust, etc. This reel of film was found amongst my father's estate items. It was so exciting, because I had no idea what was on it. Turns out it had home movies of my grandparents in their mid 20's (they are both deceased now). It was really fun to watch the DVD. You did a great job. I appreciate it SO much. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Also the communication on the transfer and shipping was A+. I always knew where in the process my order was. Great customer service!"

- Kathy S. Kent, WA

"Just wanted to let you know how thrilled we are with the quality of your work. We had about twenty 8mm films transferred onto DVD and we've been showing them (albeit slowly) to my 88-year old mother-in-law, who hadn't watched them in over 50 years. We will definitely recommend your service to all of our family and friends."
- Sue J. Scranton, PA

"Just a note to say a huge THANK YOU for a job well done! Not only did your technicians preserve 44 year old movie reels, but you seemed to infuse them with some new life and energy! I managed to make DVDs for my kids from the clips you created. I added some music where there was no sound and provided them with a valued visual-movie remembrance of their childhood days. They have been delighted beyond measure. The quality of your work was outstanding and much appreciated. We will be certain to recommend your services as and whenever the opportunity presents itself."

- Johann N. Issaquah WA

"Thank you. I've watched the movies - they are great. You did what you said what you would do. You can't ask more."

- Ron H. Centreville, OH

"The second shipment (hard drive) arrived safely and the data looks good. Thank you for your nice work in digitizing our films. We really appreciate it."

- Don and Liz C. Auburn, CA

"The work you did brought to life the 1950's era 8mm movies my father took of my brother and I. I was able to use the DVD drive you sent me to create short (20 second) clips that are randomly portrayed on the NIX Digital Photo Frame that I presented him for his 80th birthday. Now that almost a year has gone since presenting this to him, I have to praise you for all the work you did on this. He sometimes sits there just staring at the movies of his "little boys" --- where'd those guys go? I could not have asked for a more professional product. Thank you for all you work."

- Terry B. Cliffton, VA

"The DVDs we received are excellent!! You all did a great job with the transfers, and we have had fun watching them.."

- Ed F. Philadelphia, PA

"The transfer looks GREAT! Debenham Media Group did a fantastic job transferring a lot of old and partially damaged 8mm film to HD. The HD files looked amazing. And they did it for a good price."

- Andrew N. Brooklyn, NY

"I'm writing to confirm that I received my transfers today. They look great! Thanks you so much."

- Noah B. Portland, OR

"Just wanted to let you know that I received my transferred DVD and I am thrilled with the results! Great job...the color looks great!! Thanks for the various e-mails telling me you received it, it was shipped, etc. I will definitely be sending more film your way."

- Jeanne M. Delta, PA

"You have all done a magnificent job rescuing this 50 year old answer print and making it better than it ever was. I took note of the color correction and my under exposure with especially the black and white and the boosting of the audio in dialogue. Good job, for sure. You have made a terrific transfer given where we started. I had forgotten a lot having not screened the print for decades. And I reviewed the tech sheet and agree with the problem areas that you all had to deal with."

- Dan G. Bedford, IN

"I would like to thank you for an excellent service. Wow, 30+ years after my father's passing, and 20 years after my mother's, I get to see them smile again. It was bittersweet, but charged with many, many happy memories. I am grateful to you all for your work in making this possible for me. Your folks have done an excellent job. Michael with the film for sure, and Greg who took the order. He advised me with the decisions I took, and I'm grateful for his time and help, too. The people, as usual and yet so hard for some to fathom, really made the difference. You certainly have a stellar team, one to be proud of. I'll do my best to spread the word about you folks to those that need film transferred."

- Ron P. Bethesda, MD

"I've had a chance to look at the transfers and my whole extended family has been very pleased with the results. Thanks for your combination of skillful professionalism, diligent work, and personal care."

- Christopher K. Washington, DC

"A trip to the past can be sometimes a very precious thing! It was for us! I am very thankful for our ancestors to have the foresight of recording those moments and equally thankful that today we have the technology to preserve them. It makes me happy to know that your staff, including Michael, were pleased with my comments. A job well done deserves recognition, and yes, you have my permission to add the comments to your website. We are very excited and really looking forward to see the next batch of films."

- Luciana K. Oakland, TN

"The white FedEx box with dark brown tape has been within easy reach since it arrived July 26. I've exercised very bit of my will power to keep from opening the box although I see it daily. I was determined to have a grand opening at a long planned gathering of friends. Covid and the Delta variant foiled plans repeatedly. Finally, it all came together yesterday. We were all able to share memories and enjoy the movies a large TV screen. I am pleased and happy with the results of your work. Thank you very much!"

- Jeff K. Arlington, VA

"I recently sent you our old family 8mm film to be converted to digital. We were very concerned about this conversion because of the age and condition of the film. I am pleased to report that we have received the DVDs and uncompressed video files and are thrilled with the results. The High Def video looks much better on the wide screen TV than it ever looked on the film projector. Many of the problems with the film such as faded color and underexposed segments were corrected to better than the original. I highly recommend your service to anyone looking to preserve family heirloom film for the next generation."

- Stuart K. Mount Tabor, NJ

"I've been looking forward to the delivery of my movie transfers for a few weeks. I had paid another company to do them about three years ago. They promised high definition, frame-by-frame transfer. About half of the films had to be shipped back to them because of improper framing, fibers in the film gate, and inferior quality. About half of the re-do's had to be re-done. The worst, though, was that the quality was so inconsistent throughout. It was impossible to edit the movies because the color balance on the scenes varied so much. I finally lost track of which file went where, and just gave up in frustration. At the time, the company had not developed any workflow for Mac computers. I had to figure it out myself and send the information to the owner to help him out. Doing so didn't help me, though. The files have sat unedited on a portable hard drive. I never even wanted to begin the arduous job of assembly and editing. Thus, I was very eager to see if your company could improve on the previous attempt. I have nearly finished transferring the files to my computer and the scenes that I have checked looked beautiful! I know that there were wide variations in exposure and color balance on the filmstock - curse me for buying Dynachrome film in the 60s! The transfers look great, though! They are well framed, free of film-gate debris, and evenly balanced. I still have a lot of work ahead, but your excellent work will make it easy, if not enjoyable. I really had to save up to pay for the job, but I believe I got what I paid for. And having taught for 35 years, and running a business for the last ten, I know that the premium price does not always equal premium work. It appears that with your company, though, it definitely does. Well done! Thanks to all of you for helping preserve very precious memories. I can't wait to edit the scenes and share them with my family! A big pat on the back for a well-run company that delivers on its pledge. And to the unnamed technician who transferred my films, THANK YOU!"

- Gil B. Redlands, CA

"Thanks so much for the great job on the movie transfers. I have seven brothers and sisters, our mother just turned 80, and this was a great treat for everybody!""

- Seanna D. Johnston, RI

"Thanks for getting the transfer done so quickly. I have received the films and USB drive and all looks good. I have backed up the files to another hard drive. I have done a quick look at each file and so far so good. Thanks so much for your work. I have shared short clips with my family already and they play them over and over laughing and reliving fond memories."

- Joseph J. Houston, TX

"Overall I am quite happy with the work you did, and suffice to say I will recommend your company, and when the opportunity comes up I will use your services again."

- Richard M. Brooklyn, NY

"We are very happy with the transfer of our 16mm film project to 1080p HD. You brought back colors that were missing in our old Betacam SP master of the same program, which really brings the picture to life. The custom HD resolution of 1560x1080 allows us to re-format the program for HD with less resizing, thus maintaining a higher resolution master. The overall picture was sharp but not harsh. We especially appreciate the QuickTime raw file-based masters you delivered on hard drive. As a professional production company, we have been looking for reasonably priced, high quality film transfer for reformatting older films to new HD technologies, and you have provided it."

- Doug D. Pittsburgh, PA

"I received my digital media several weeks ago and I am very pleased with the results of your work. It is so re-assuring that these precious memories are now preserved for the future of our family. What a gift you have blessed me with. Thank you again!!!"

- Jeanne P. Norman, OK

"The transfer turned out very nice. I am glad we did the high definition transfer, it maintained the original character of the film. My uncle was excited to see film of himself and his marine friends in Cuba over 40 years ago."

- John G. North Bangor, ME
