These guys trully rock! Great service from beginning to end. From initial investigative phonecall where all the questions I had were answered. Then I used their online portal to register my Super 8 film to be sent in to them to be converted. The film was collected from my house the next day and within a couple of weeks the unseen 4 minutes of film of my parents wedding (from almost 50 years ago) was viewable via the Alive Studios online portal.
Magical and I can't wait to show the film to my parents - particularly my father who has severe dementia. Hoping it'll help unlock a few happy memories for them both.
Excellent transfer from my 16mm film. I had it digitised some years ago by a firm (now no more) that did just a basic transfer - no cleaning or grading. Alive Studios were vastly better, and I have no hesitation in recommending them
The 4K transfer of my four reels of Super8 film by Alive Studios is excellent.
It's far superior to the 1080p results from the previous Super8 they transferred several years ago.
It's not the cheapest option but it's the best option for handling on the past to the future.
1. I had to send a follow-up email to get the pick-up arranged.

2. The service took much longer than I expected.

3. I wasn't aware that some of the files returned would be Apple format.

4. The "music" added to the video was not worth having and very strange choice for a wedding video.

5. The 4k quality appears good though I would have expected more removal of camera shake.

6. Very expensive service but overall I am reasonably happy with the end product.
Little doubt in my mind that Alive provide the best service and quality available. We have tried others but the service from Alive is the "Gold Standard" of archive transfer and in terms of quality and delivery!

A choice of delivery and return options would be good.
Royal mail are very reliable in our area
very very happy with service. lovely folk to deal with.
They can and do work miracles. took a while but well worth the wait.
I have been impressed by the polite and efficient service provided and the information available throughout. I am unable to highlight any area for improvement.
The most important issue is of course the end product and I can only say that I am delighted with the "video" in every detail. It provides with a wonderful opportunity to revisit the best day in my life.
Not only would I recommend you to others but I already have.
Excellent results and service, really pleased with the results
It did take a while for everything to be copied, but it was over 80 hours of viewing
I would recommend their services
Very easy procedures for sending and receiving material.
We were kept up to date each step of the way and the finished article is amazing, especially as we were asking for a 50 year old 8mm film that had several projector burn flashes on it to be transferred to a USB.
Well done Alive studios.
