FILM PREPARATION & CLEANING PRIOR TO SCANNING
FILM CONDITION BEFORE SCANNING (TRANSFER) - CLEANING
& LUBRICATION: Single Frame Digital
Motion Picture Film Scanning™
All films are
prepped before transfer to repair bad splices and to look for potential bad
film, then cleaned using our
Kinetronics StaticVac Anti-Static Film Cleaner system.
After cleaning all films are lubricated and a preservative
added if required. If your film is in excellent
condition, lubrication & preservatives may not
be required, in this case we will only perform cleaning using the
Kinetronics StaticVac. This would be determined during visual inspection when
the films arrive at the lab.
OUR FILM CLEANING SYSTEM USED PRIOR TO LUBRICATION AND
StaticVac Anti-Static Film Cleaner is
a vacuum cleaner to be used on film. It utilizes an
electronic "bipolar" ionizing system. The StaticVac
produces both positive and negative ions for complete
static elimination. It will clean all film sizes up to
70mm (2.75"), including 35 mm, 120, and APS. As the film
is passed through the StaticVac, the ionization system
gets rid of the static on the film. Then, the gentle
StaticWisk brushes wipe dust and lint away. The vacuum
action draws the dust and lint into the foam filter.
Even digital ICE tool software does not replace the
StaticVac film cleaner for the removal of dust from both
sides of your film prior to scanning.

some regular 8mm film & 16mm film can
be in poorer condition depending on its
age and stored condition. If your film is
in poor condition, has a white powder or
smells like vinegar (or just smells bad), then your film will
need to be cleaned, lubricated, restored

separated then additional repairs/splicing/editing will have
to be performed. DO NOT USE HOUSEHOLD TAPE

the recommended film splicing tape or
glue. If your films are mounted
backwards on their original film reels
then they will have to be remounted. Any film reels that
