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.

Super 8 - Corrected VS. Uncorrected





Sample frames of 7217 Vision 2 Super 8 Corrected and Uncorrected (flat) in the transfer. It is essential to make sure that your transfer house has the controls to properly manage the colors, contrast and density of the new (fabulous!) negative film stocks. We've had to do a number of 'retransfers' for people who have had their films transferred elsewhere and were not satisfied with the results.
Stock: 7217 200t
Format: Super 8mm
Camera: Canon 1014xls
Cinematographer: Justin Lovell
