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- NYC, Sonya Kitchell Music Video

video




Frame Discreet cinematographers Guy Godfree and Justin Lovell got out for an awesome time out with the CHOP WOOD CARRY WATER crew in NYC. Shooting Sonya Kitchell in "here to there", fresh off her European tour with Herbie Hancock. 2 days of shooting, 3 days of prep and scouting. RedRock adapter can produce some great results, however I wasn't totally impressed by it. Seemed to have a lack of sharpness at the edges of frame, and knocks the light level down to an equivalent of 80ASA. Made use of our newest tool, the LED 1000 from Flolight. Was a real asset. 1000W output, 100w power draw. Excellent for car interiors.
