Home movies won't last forever. Don't wait another moment to restore your family's legacy.  Bring your memories back to life at summit video services.

Home movie film was a unique slice of Americana, entering the mainstream in the 1930s and becoming even more popular in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Like the videos on your smart phone today, these films chronicled the lives of people at that time: weddings, birthdays, vacations, etc.

The trouble is, in order for you to view them, you have to risk potential damage on your film by running them through old projectors that may burn or tear through these one-of-a-kind memories.

Our film transfer equipment is state-of-the-art, rendering a sharp, high-definition transfer that puts no wear and tear on your film. It's no wonder we regularly work with clients like The National Archives and The National Park Service.

Unsure what type or types of film you have? Don't worry. We can transfer all film formats including 8mm, Super-8, 16mm, and 35mm with or without sound.

Your film can be transferred directly to DVD complete with custom menus, titles, and chapters. All of your discs can be organized and cased together in one wallet album, a great space consolidation of your entire film collection that you can place on a shelf.

Want to edit your old home movies after they've been transferred? Prefer to view them on your mobile devices or share them online? We can also convert your films into digital files (such as .mp4, .mov, and .avi). Once digitized, we can copy them to flash drives, portable hard drives, or let us help you store your media in the cloud for online sharing with friends and family.

I did a lot of research looking for a service to transfer my folk’s 8mm film onto DVD. When I called Chad, he was nice, funny, and knowledgeable. I made the right decision.

After everything was completed and my sisters and I went to get the DVD, Chad let us watch the whole thing right there in the studio. I’m glad because there was no way I was making it home without seeing it first. We sat by the screen, pointed, and named all the relatives we recognized that had passed or aged more than we realized.

When we gave it to my dad for Father’s Day, his face looked instantly younger and excited.



”Can we watch it now? Can we watch it now?” 



Seriously, he asked twice in a row like a little kid. Mom cried. It was magical.

A few days later he took that DVD to my grandparents (Grandma is 86 and Grandpa is 91). The best comment about the entire experience was, “Grandma got to see her mom again.”

Thanks Chad!
