About Us

T R A N S F E R S

Finding that there is a lack of support for affordable high resolution transfers, I began researching my own ways to do it. I shot a few short films and soon thereafter other filmmakers began approaching me wondering how I got my super 8 to look so good... 5 years have passed and with the support of other cinematographers, I created our little studio called Frame Discreet. Our custom super 8 and 16mm transfers have us trusted by archivists and filmmakers all across North America.

Our team of cinematographers (listed below) act as a collective, inspiring each other on and off set. We have a full range of experience working on features (Max Payne, The Hulk) to music videos (Hayden, Emily Haines), to Documentaries (CBC, YTV, MTV, Bravo!). Having our own gear and being able to supervise transfers in house allows us the freedom to create desireable 'film looks' at a much more affordable rate. In the end, we're trying to make it easier to collaborate, work with film and keep doin' what we love.

On Location- Sony F900 on "Apollo's Pad"



Frame Discreet Cinematographer Michael Leblanc just linked me with some production stills from "Apollo's Pad", a puppet show he is currently shooting. Leblanc is well respected for his 35mm and 16mm cinematography. Taking on a new challenge, he is shooting this all in HD with the Sony F900. The results have been stunning.

Camera: Sony F900
Filter: 1/4 black frost to help blowout the highlights a little bit and soften the blacks. Shot in 24p mode
Show: Apollo's Pad

The Sony f900 camera is a truly amazing camera and will be around for a long time as a broadcast television camera since networks invested heavily in the HDCam format and 1080 pretty much became the defacto digital bar for broadcast television.

They are amazing workhorse cameras. I've done f900 rentals and /or shot with f900 cameras since 2001 and outside of routine maintenance have had very little repair costs.
