The New Well filmed on 8mm silent film

This is an 8mm film I converted for a client (shown with his permission). It was made in the late 60's or early 70's. The usual color corrections were made along with image stabilization. The jittery image you see from time to time is the blur from the camera movements that can now be seen after stabilization. After correction the image isn't jumping drastically up and down, and from side to side, and is now watchable, although somewhat less than perfect. In addition to the film restoration, I added a sound track to the film consisting of truck and machinery sounds, along with outdoor sounds of birds and dogs. As I have mentioned elsewhere on this site, adding sound is key, and I prefer ambient sounds to music. Watching this film feels much more natural with sound and gives it a more updated feeling while watching it.

The film was washed out and extremely grainy, and took a lot to get it to this point. As you can see from the examples I have put onto this site just converting your films to video is only part of the job. Making them look their best is the second part of the job.
