We’re Here to Help
You know how it works. You’re cleaning out your attic or garage and find that box of old movie reels. The problem is the movie projector you had to watch them is long gone! No worries! We transfer the three main formats of movie film: 16 mm film, Regular 8 mm film, and Super 8 film.
How Film Reel Transfers Work
Gather your film reels and number your movie reels or boxes in the order you want them to be digitized or put on DVD.
If you would like a title at the beginning before reel #1 please provide.
Drop off your reels or ship them to our location.
8300 Fairview Rd.
Mint Hill, NC 28227
Once your reels have been received, our staff will estimate the amount of film you have and contact you with a price estimate before we start the transfer process.
Our experienced staff will carefully handle each of your movie reels through our digitizing process, and call you once your order is completed. You will also receive all of the original reels back with your order.
NOTE: No projector? Try holding the film up near a bright window or lamp to see the beginning frames, a magnified glass helps.
The price is per foot. Create A Video only charges for the footage that is actually transferred. If there is more than 2 sec of no footage, we edit that out.

“Thank you so much. My DVD is amazing. I think my family is going to love it. Great job and will definitely will be doing business with you again. This is my families 2nd time around and just as happy as the first.”
“You guys did a great job on the video everybody loved it and said it was very professional. I will definitely be back for other projects.”
“Great business and owners. Would do business again and tell others to as well. 5 Stars all the way!”
“The staff are very professional and personal. They hold your memories with the greatest respect and care, as if they are their own. I took years old videos of our 3 children, one child we lost almost 15 years ago to leukemia. It took lots of courage to even bring that one in along with the cassette of his service. The staff was so kind and caring. Great business!”
