can I transfer film to a Digital file?
Yes, in fact this is becoming more popular than transferring your film to DVD or BluRay. The reason is that digital files don't limit you to a format like DVD or BluRay. Not only can you edit from a digital file (unlike DVD & BluRay), but it allows you to do just about anything with the video including You Tube videos, adding music, titles, re-arranging the content and direct streaming to your TV.

For example, have they done work recently for the Government, Independent movie makers or Universities. If so, who?
