Digitizing Films in Vancouver
Wouldn't it be great to not only view it, but also share it with friends and family? Imagine showcasing your family treasurers to your kids or grandkids with your new digital media on DVD or your computer. Most everyone has this problem with shelves and boxes of photos, videos, audio, and films. This is where we can help. Technology is changing so fast that those machines that used to play those old media formats are no-where to be found. We have professional old and new technology to digitize those memories.
Transfer Film to DVD, HD, or Digital Format
Your parents may have transferred film to VHS using yesterday's technology that did a decent job. But today's technology can transfer the films to an amazing high definition picture! Just ask us about the documentary film producers, the archives, museums, and many consumers that we've already helped. Contact us today so you can enjoy your treasures tomorrow.

Great footage taken from a 16mm film of the Grey Cup (CFL Football) Parade in downtown Vancouver 1955. This was the first time that the Grey Cup was held in Vancouver, BC. Notice the Jack Cullen Record store across the street. Jack Cullen worked for many many years in radio. I remember him from CKNW.
Arthur David Kean, cinematographer, created this film of New Westminster’s 1915 and 1917 May Day festival. The 35mm nitrate film was in amazing shape except that the beginning and the end of the film were missing. The film was digitized for the New Westminster Archives ( https://www.newwestcity.ca/services/arts-and-heritage/museums-and-archives )
Here’s a note from a very happy customer that had us digitize their Super8 film reels…..
“Just wanted to send you a huge thank you for your work after taking a look at the scan results of the film reels.
Your digitization of my family's reels far exceeded my high expectations. I’ve never seen them like this before. You two guys do a fantastic job. Keep up the good work, and I hope to see you again!”
- Andrew Haddock, Chilliwack
“Lifetime Heritage Films did a wonderful job scanning my Super 8 film into HD.
I had previously overpaid a company to do low-res video transfers using outdated telecine techniques. The results were akin to someone projecting my film onto a dirty bath towel, and then videotaping the projection with an early 90's camcorder. Having never shot Super 8, I just assumed that's what it was supposed to look like. Wrong.
Suffice to say I was blown away when I got my scans back from LHF.”

"Thank you so much for transferring my old 8 mm films to a flash drive. It was wonderful to see the films of my parents and older siblings. I'm sure my family had not seen these since the 1960's! What a treat! I will be sure to recommend your film transfer services to my friends who want to see their parents old home movies."

"Watched a few more of the films and wish to let you know that we are very happy with the end result. The colour, clarity etc is awesome and we can't wait to sit down and go through all of the videos. Thank you so much for completing them in time for Christmas. I texted my daughter and told her she is going to receive the best Christmas present ever when she views them with us..... "
- Lucille and Jim Arnusch, Grand Forks
"The slideshow that you produced to help my father be inducted into the Basebase Hall Of Fame welled up emotions in all of us especially my dad. We are extremely grateful for the magical slideshow, the expert scanning of a myriad of materials and the extremely quick delivery on such short notice."
- Elizabeth J Photography, Port Moody
