Yes, we can preserve the audio from your film reels. Although rare, some film was recorded with original audio. If you have gold or copper-colored magnetic strips running along both edges of your Super 8 mm film strip, or a clear optical strip with an audio wave on your 16 mm film strip, you have original audio. 

Your original media and containers will be returned with your completed order. 

Note: Movie film will be cleaned and spliced onto new 7-inch plastic reels. Your original reels will be returned empty.
