About Alive Studios

We are a professional film scanning and image processing studio, located in Devon in the South of England. We specialise in the transfer and restoration of old film and images. We work for museums, TV companies, documentary makers, archive facilities, historians and members of the general public.

Our Vision
Alive Studios products have touched the lives of over 19,000 people. Whether that's through restoring an archive of old family cine film, scanning a collection of 35mm slides or restoring a Betamax tape previously thought irreparable... This is what we do.

Cine film transfer in HD or UHD
We transfer Cine Film to digital, for families, archives and museums all over the UK. We convert standard 8mm, super8, 16mm, super16 and 9.5mm.

We use a true one-to-one frame scanner which takes individual photographs of each cell of your film which are expertly compiled into a movie, the edited and colour corrected. The resulting film is sent to you on USB memory stick or hard-drive (we don’t make DVDs). You can also purchase the individual photographs which are called an ‘image sequence’. You can choose to have your film scanned on our 2K scanner, which is High Definition, or our 4K Ultra HD scanner.
