When I was a kid, my parents always had a camera ready to take snapshots. Over time, they invested in a movie camera and used it for birthdays, graduations, and similar events. While both of them passed away years ago, I still have the old film in my closet.
A friend recently suggested I take the film to a local video specialist. As it happened, the professional was able to digitally restore the film so the colors were true and the footage was clear. I now have digital copies of all those memories that I can pass on to my kids.
If you have old home movies in the closet, now is the time to convert them to a digital format. Let me tell you more what the local video production company did for me, and I'm betting you'll want to have the same done as soon as possible.
