Pro8mm is applauded for being a one-stop shop where cameras, film, processing, digital mastering, and treasured family archival home movies can all be handled by a dedicated staff with decades of experience. The company has enjoyed continuous growth for over 35 years in a niche market that in our opinion exists at all because of the dedicated hard work and entrepreneurial spirit to continuously move forward in alignment with the media industry.
Pro8mm has a special niche for content creators and archivists working with 8mm, Super 8mm and 16mm film. Resources for filmmakers worldwide continue to vanish with fewer labs, film stocks, reliable camera equipment and technical support for analog filmmaking. Traditional filmmaking programs have long been eliminated from film schools. Yet, there is a thriving community of people wanting to shoot motion picture film stock for new projects. In addition, there is a need for experts handing archival footage of historical content used in documentaries and precious family home movies that hold our legacy. These films require special care and a standard of best practices for how this material should be digitized and how to create a proper archive for the original material. Since 1972, Pro8mm (formerly Super8Sound) has served the need of filmmakers and archivists by building a community and one-stop shop of resources, elevating these traditional formats to their highest possibility in a digital world.
Pro8mm offers a comprehensive workflow with tiered pricing for production and archival work to accommodate budget and fulfillment schedules. They have a retail store in Burbank, California staffed with highly trained expert project coordinators that can answer all client questions, be it in person, on the phone or via email. Film is sold with processing and scanning at one bundled price. All work is done on site and in house to optimize quality control. Super 8 cameras are available for purchase, rent or repair (some models). Archival material for individuals and industry are scanned on state of the art scanners, offering the client many choices for digital standard, file format, delivery format and framing.
