This is a developing/scan service for your new Double 8 exposed film.
Service includes developing your film and scanning to a HD file. The media is placed on a USB Thumb Drive (that you supply)
Follow the steps below (to send your film) and read all the info on this page before ordering. Note: If you need additional items (i.e. film or other FPP products), please order them separately. Otherwise, other items ordered will ship when your Develop/Scan is complete).
Note: This page is new 8mm film. We do not develop old or vintage Kodachrome (or Ektachrome 160 type) film. If you found film in your vintage camera, it's almost 100% Kodachrome. Try Film Rescue for Kodachrome recovery. If you have vintage film that is already developed, we can scan it for you.
Steps for processing your exposed film:
- Place your order through this product page. Be sure to select the number (quantity) of rolls you will send and the resolution of your scans. If you pick a quantity greater than one, all rolls must be sent in one package.
- Download, read completely and fill out your FPP FILM FORM (CLICK HERE) – print and send the completed form in with your film (our address is on this form)
- Number your rolls (if more than 1). Note that if you are ordering more than one or another service, all your film must be mailed at the same time.

Mail your film to us - address on the FILM FORM you download. (Trackable, insured mail is recommended).
Turnaround on movie film developing / scan is 4-6 week from when we "check in" your film. You will receive an email when your film is checked in and, when completed, you will receive an email with notes. We return your developed film along with your scan on your USB thumb drive.

The Fine Print - Orders will take 4-6 weeks from the time we receive your film. 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 – it’s a fact that user error and / or malfunctioning vintage cameras can result in under, overexposed, blank film, jiggly lines due to a bad film gate/improper loading/malfunctioning camera. In the event we are unable to retrieve an image or correct an issue after scanning, we will provide you with feedback at the time we deliver your file.

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.

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.
