For a Documentary Edit, the use of photographs is paramount in telling a loved-one's story, so we normally require these to be sent in a digital format during the editing. If this isn’t possible, we can either ‘film’ these in Ultra High Definition on location after the interview has taken place or at our premises. In a final Documentary Edit of 45 minutes, we use on average 50-100 photographs.
Although we will take the greatest care of your photographs, we cannot take responsibility whatsoever for any loss or damage of the original material.
Please read our Terms & Conditions
Often photographs fade or become damaged over the years. Tiny blemishes are cleaned up free of charge, but for those pictures needing more attention (mild to medium damage) these can be restored for a small fee. For severely damaged photos that require major reconstruction, we will send a quotation after we have seen the images.
Please note that restoring photographs is not always necessary. Damaged, scratched and ageing photographs can be ‘atmospheric’ in a documentary, this is why we only fix certain photographs as part of the free service when the blemishes become a distraction rather than a style.
