FPP film developing / scan services for your Double 8mm film (also known as Regular 8mm film). 

With the introduction of our Cine8 8mm color and BW film, we have been asked by many of our customers to offer both processing and scanning services so that FPP can be your one-stop-shop!

Our handy drop down (choose resolution tab "add-to-cart" above) is based on each 25 foot roll of film you send for scanning. (Note that each 25 foot roll with both sides exposed at 16fps yields approx 3 minutes of footage)

We accept the following film for our developing / scan service. Note that this service is for one 25 foot roll of film. Our handy drop down (choose quantity tab "add-to-cart" above) is based on each 25 foot roll of film you send for developing / scanning.

*Vintage Kodachrome developing ended in 2010. 8mm Kodachrome can only be developed as BW negative.

Please read Michael Raso's BLOG on old Kodachrome (includes a video which you can see modern results from develop/scanning).

Price includes:

  • Film Developing
  • Film Prep (prep for scan - once developed)

Note: Turnaround time is typically 4 - 6 weeks. Longer if we have high scan volume. Reversal (positive film) is returned on a 50 ft spool in case you wish to project in a vintage projector. BW and color negative films are returned on a lab core for storage (since negative films are not for projection)

The Fine Print - When you submit your film assets to Film Photography Project (FPP) for scanning or handling of any kind you agree to the fullest extent of the law to  indemnify, defend, and hold harmless FPP, its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, and suppliers from and against all claims, losses, liabilities and damages of any kind, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, arising from or relating in any way to your use of our services, or any violation of these Terms, any law, or any rights of any third party, including when the active or passive negligence of  FPP is alleged or proven.

Shooter Error - Fact is, we see lots of film that has issues due to user error and malfunctioning vintage cameras. Under exposure, over exposure, jiggly frame lines due to bad film gate, blank film are just some issues. In this case we will e-mail you if we see an issue. If you decide not to move forward with scanning, we will offer you FPP store credit for the unused scanning portion of your payment.

For this portion of services, we only offer replacement of raw materials in case of transit loss or lab damage. If you are working on an important project, we recommend Production Insurance.

Sh*t Happens - Your media is very important to you, and we take every precaution to ensure the safety of your film while they are at our facility.  However, sometimes the unpredictable happens during shipping to and from our facility, or while a service is being provided.  Our commitment to you, is that if any item is lost or damaged by us while at our facility, we will replace it with an item of equivalent amount.  To ensure you are protected above and beyond our replacement of the raw materials, we strongly suggest you acquire insurance.  To ensure you are protected during the shipping of the items, please insure your packages.
