Make It in the Movies

When people wonder what we do here at Video2DVD Transfers, one of the first things we tell them is how we transfer videos of weddings to DVD. And sure, that’s a key part of any VHS to DVD transfer we perform. Especially since a wedding is one of those special, once-in-a-lifetime moments that people will want to watch again and again for years to come. A lot like a child’s first birthday, or their christening. But that’s not the only kind of movies we convert to DVD. Here are a few more kinds of videos that we can transfer for you.

 

School Play

We’ve all seen them, and all pretended to enjoy them. Whether it’s the summer production or the Christmas nativity, your kid took such pride in being on-stage, and we know you did too. Sure, they might not appreciate it so much now they’re older, but you’ll still want to remember that time when they wowed the audience with a flawless reading of ‘To be or not to be…’ There’s an added bonus to getting your kid’s school play put onto DVD too. If something goes wrong, brilliant, you can send it in to You’ve Been Framed too.

School Disco

Before Americans came along and forced the whole prom night-limousine-tuxedo business on us, the disco was the highlight of the school year. Starting the night nervously fiddling with your dress or those cufflinks your mother made you wear, and wondering whether that special someone will dance with you. Ending the night, high on jelly sweets and Tizer, jigging to Spandau Ballet’s True. Good times. You know what they say: if you remember your first school disco, you weren’t there, man. Well, prove them wrong with a DVD copy of the night.

Homemade Movies

Do you remember when you first got hold of a camcorder? How did it make you feel? Excited? Nervous? That you were a budding Steven Spielberg? Hey, we all have to start somewhere. Sure, that homemade movie might seem a bit embarrassing now. I mean, stunt-work basically involves you hurling yourself over the hood of your dad’s car, and special effects consist of cap guns and you and your friends shouting ‘Bang!’ as loudly as possible. But it’d be a shame not to keep a copy, watch it with your mates, or even hide it away from your significant other. That’s why converting them to DVD is a great idea. It might not be your crowning moment, but it was probably the most fun you’ve had with a video camcorder.

Maybe you have some of these old videos stashed away in your garage, loft or even hidden under the bed. If you have, then we can help transfer them to DVD for you. For more info about your affordable VHS to DVD transfers, just contact us on 0800 592433 and we’ll be happy to help.

Why Memories Make the Best Gifts

Giving somebody memories for their birthday or Christmas admittedly sounds a bit strange, but we’re sure you know what we mean! However, if you don’t, let us tell you that there are plenty of ways to do it these days including: photo books, photo albums, and, of course, the wonderful gift of transferring old home movies on VHS to DVD so that your loved ones can watch them back on current technology! Memories really do make the best gifts and we’re going to tell you why…

Remember the Good Times!

How do you feel when you remember certain times in your life? Joyous, warm and happy – we’re sure you’ve found yourself smiling outwardly because of what you’re thinking about! Just imagine giving this gift to somebody that you love – how would they react? Remembering brings back emotions and makes you feel young again, which is why it’s a fantastic gift for special birthdays and anniversaries.

A Gift that Just Keeps On Giving!

With a home movie or photo album, your gift will live on forever. The loved one who is receiving the gift will be able to look through an album or stick on a home movie whenever they feel like it, therefore the gift of memories is certainly a gift that just keeps on giving!

Incredibly Personal and Unique!

There is nothing more personal and unique than this gift – you cannot buy memories from a shop! Well, we can help you to transfer your old films, however you’re the one who has created the memories, making this gift wholly unique; no one else will have it but you and whoever you’ve given a copy of the film to! You can make it even more special by creating a personalised cover!

Shows You Care

Nothing shows you care more than a thoughtful gift, and this is exactly what an old home movie on DVD is. It shows that you’ve gone to a real effort to give a gift full of meaning, rather than simply buying a cheap pair of socks from the supermarket!

Bring Your Old Memories to Life

So, if you truly love someone, give them the gift of memories to show that you really care! It‘s wonderfully personal and will certainly help you both to remember the happy times forever!  So go on, bring your old memories to life again!

Transfer Video Direct to Digital?

As our direct to Digital service increases in popularity we have installed another Teranex processor.

 

Made by Black Magic Design the Teranex offers incredible results.

Direct to digital transfers from videotape are ideal if you want to edit your home movies and perhaps produce a special memento of a special occasion from your families past. You can also email and share your memories.

Details and ordering for our Video to Digital service can be found here.

Barcode stickers?

Some of our customers have asked us what the barcode stickers on their returned videotapes are.

We stick one to each of your tapes the moment they arrive with us. They include your order number and our individual tape reference. It’s very unlikely that a tape becomes separated from it’s order whilst in our studios. But in that unlikely event we can match things up quickly using the information on the stickers we apply. They also help us check your order before we dispatch it.

The stickers are removable adhesive so you can take them off once you receive your parcel back.

Editing your footage

Don’t forget that we offer digital files both from cine film and from Video………… ideal if you want to do some editing of your memories.

For cine film select one of the avi options on the order form. www.c2dt.co.uk

For Video select the transfer to digital option on page one of the order form. www.v2dt.co.uk

You can call us on 0800 592433 to discuss your project.
