FILM-TO-VIDEO TRANSFERS


16mm SOUND AND SILENT PRICING
$80.00 PER HOUR

We do not charge by the foot (as do most other production facilities); we charge an hourly fee, which includes threading, transferring, and rewinding each reel. There is a $25.00 minimum charge to transfer 16mm film that runs 15 minutes or less. We have a sliding rate scale from these minimums that runs up to the hourly fee if your film transfers take between the minimum charge and a full hour. Please and tell us how many reels you have, their sizes, etc. for a more accurate estimate. These rates do not include disc/flash/hard drive stock, or shipping.

If additional DVDs are requested, they are "cloned", that is, digitally duplicated with no loss in quality whatsoever after the initial transfer. DVD clones are $4.95 each regardless of length, and this includes a case and labeling.

35MM SLIDE TRANSFER PRICING
$80.00 PER HOUR
Slides are transferred from 80-tray and 160-tray carousels and must be preloaded before sending them for transfer. The above hourly rate will also apply if slides need to be loaded and unloaded here once we receive them.

We CAN add titles and music to any of the above transfer services at additional costs.


TRANSFER OF VHS/BETAMAX/
CAMCORDER AND 3/4-INCH VIDEO TAPES

Shokus Video will take your old tapes and convert them to either DVD or mp4 format. We have two basic charges for this:

THE "STRAIGHT TRANSFER" METHOD
If your VHS, Betamax, or camcorder tape is full (that is, it runs a full two hours and you just want it transferred from start to finish "straight through" with no stopping, the cost is $23.95, which includes the disc, case and labeling. To go to a 16gb flash drive, the cost is $27.95. A 16gb flash drive will hold approximately 8 hours of video, so up to 3 "full" additional tapes will be charged at $20 each with no additional charge for the flash drive. Please contact us for pricing if you wish to go to a larger external hard drive.

THE "CUT AND PASTE" METHOD
Many of our clients prefer this method because we will combine shorter length tapes and compile them onto a 2-hour DVD with a menu to choose between each, or put them all on a flash or hard drive as individual mp4 files. The labor cost for this is $25.00 per hour and does NOT include the cost of disc/flash/hard drive stock. For this method, the $25.00 per hour charge is added for the time it takes us to "roll down" each tape to get its approximate running time, so it can be started and stopped properly. The advantage for this method is less storage space will be required for your transfers afterward.

3/4-INCH U-MATIC TAPES
The rate is $25.00 per hour, regardless of the length of each tape. There is a minimum of $20.00 if the job takes less than an hour to transfer.

You can and let us know your specific requirements. We will give you a more accurate estimate.



TV AIR CHECKS
One of our most popular services is to record programs off the air or from streaming for our clients that don't receive specific channels or do not subscribe to streaming services. Besides having access to every television station in the Los Angeles area, we also have DirecTV, as well as access to various online services. We have the capability to capture many different programs, provided we have sufficient notice from the client.

AIR CHECKS START AT $25.00 PER HOUR (with a $20.00 minimum for anything less than an hour). To edit out commercials and station breaks afterward, there are additional charges. These prices do not include disc/flash/hard drive stock, or shipping. You can if you require any further information.
