At Craven Films we offer personal service to digitize your old videotapes, 8mm and 16mm films, audiocassettes, LPs, reel-to-reel audiotapes, and still photos.

We provide you with digital files for use on any computer, phone or tablet; these files can be posted / sent anywhere. We can make MPEG-4 or QuickTime files from videotapes, film footage and DVDs; MP3, AIFF or WAVE files from audiocassettes, LPs or CDs; and JPEG and other photo formats from still images.We can also make DVDs of your videos, or CDs of your audio files.

We can digitize VHS, 8mm, and just about every other videotape format - including PAL videotapes and all types of professional videotapes.

We examine each tape, roll of film or LP individually, and we can often (but not always, unfortunately!) repair damaged tapes or films. Your transferred footage will be of the highest possible quality.

We can upload your videos to YouTube or Vimeo, and we can send them to you via a File Transfer Service, or put your digitized files on a flash drive.

Our prices are very reasonable, and vary based on the length of the tape or film to be digitized. A base rate is $40 for digitizing a VHS videotape up to 120 minutes. Discounts are available for large quantities of tapes.

Smaller orders of 1 to 3 VHS, 8mm, DV and DVCAM tapes are usually completed within 10days; larger orders take longer. Some less common video formats and some audio formats require SIGNIFICANTLY MORE TIME to complete, as some of our machines are shared with other post-production facilities.

Editing of your footage, including adding titles, graphics, music and sound effects, is available. Editing starts at $50/hour, with discounts for longer edits.

We can also scan your photos - prints, enlargements, slides or negatives - making digital files you can view on your phone or computer, and post on-line and share with anyone. We can also transfer PowerPoint presentations to digital video files, adding narration and music if desired.

Please call Michael for a price quote or to discuss your footage / project - 212 463-7190. Thanks!
