Our professional 8mm film to DVD service is perfect for bringing your memories and nostalgia into the 21st century, whilst still capturing the essence and zeitgeist of the time. A way which many films do this nowadays is through looking back at particular movements of an era, or simply capturing them as they occur. Dominating the box office at the moment is Straight Outta Compton, the story of one of raps most notorious groups, which looks back and captures the group’s rise to fame.
With the success of the film on both sides of the pond, we felt we would take a look at some other successful musical films which have managed to capture the mood of an era, although – unlike Straight Outta Compton – our particular selection captures the mood of the specific time within which they were actually filmed. Starting with an absolute classic…
Saturday Night Fever (1977)
Jailhouse Rock (1957)
This Is Spinal Tap (1984)
It takes a talent to capture an era and a movement, but we think you’ll agree that these three classics each manage it extremely well; providing not only a glimpse into fashion, but music and attitudes of the time. If you’re like us, that’s one of the reasons we like looking back at our own home videos; it’s always a bit of a tickle taking a peek back at dad’s hairstyle of 1986 or mum’s choice of dress in ’92. So if you would like the opportunity to capture these memories on a more permanent format, such as with our DVD transfer service, then don’t hesitate to contact us on 0800 592433 where one of our friendly media professionals will be eagerly awaiting your call.
