Film Conversion


Film conversion is the process of transforming analog film to a digital format. Converting film to digital format provides more flexibility during the post-production process than the use of traditional analogue techniques. Having more flexibility in turn means greater control over image quality. During the digital editing process each scene is manually color corrected, exposure and gamma levels are properly calibrated and image filters are applied to restore the film's original clarity and sharpness. The numerous techniques we employ to ensure optimum picture quality is what distinguishes Icehouse Pictures from it's competitors.
