This has been one of our favourite transfers to date. A 3 minute 8mm film reel of a wedding from 1942.

We decided not to try and restore the footage and applied some general colour correction and filters.

The DVD was given a simple menu, and we pulled stills from almost every shot in the movie to create a slideshow with music from that time period, focusing on capturing faces in as clean of frame as possible.
