Public Television Production Features Saving Tape Film Transfers

Twin Cities Public Television recently premiered a TPT co-production titled "Women Serving in War". The program features three generations of Minnesota's military women who share their stories of service from World War II to Vietnam to Afghanistan. Produced with MN Dept of Veterans Affairs.

Producer Stephanie Hallen, worked with Saving Tape Media Conversion to digitize a portion of the source material used in the production - namely 35mm slides and 8mm movie film.  The 35mm slides were scanned to .jpeg format, utilizing digital dust and scratch reduction to maximize the image quality for incorporation into the production timeline. The 8mm film was cleaned and repaired, then scanned in high definition, utilizing progressive frame-by-frame technology.

Saving Tape Film Transfers Featured in Indie Documentary "Legends of Ska"

Minneapolis filmmaker Brad Klein will debut his full-length documentary Legends of Ska in Minneapolis in November. Already praised at film festivals around the world, the film tells the story of Ska music and musicians. Saving Tape was tapped to digitally scan 8mm and 16mm film footage to be used in the movie.

Over the course of the last several years Brad has been scouring a variety of 8mm, 16mm and Super 8 film sources to find segments of footage to help illustrate the mood of the times portrayed in his film. Saving Tape cleaned the film and transferred it to HD digital files which were incorporated into the film narrative.
