My dad has a bunch of 8 mm movies from when he was in the Navy from Antartica and many other ports that I have never seen and would like to do so. The only problem is that his movie projector doesnt work anymore. So my questions is does anyone know where I can get the film strip recorded to a vhs or dvd best if in the greater Bangor area?

Ursa (?sp) productions in Waterville may be able to do it. We converted VHS PALS to NTCS. It was a little bit pricey but no more so than some of the other mail order places. Also sometimes the Vo techs will do it.

I would get in touch with any local camera store and ask them,they might know.

I went to a flee market and got a very contancerous old projector. It works, but it takes a lot of paitience. I also got a little gaget that lets you take video of the projected image. the whole set up works if you are carefull. Of course, you will need a digital video camera. (Mine no longer works)

If you want to borrow it, let me know.

northeast historic films in bucksport would be another place to try - and they would probably love to have copies of the 8 mm film

Yes - and glad you mentioned this company! Their films are great if you're a history buff. Their website is here (http://www.oldfilm.org/).

That reminded me of another place. The Instructional Systems Center in the basement of Shibles Hall at UMO might be interested if the films have some historical interest.
