Jo and her team effectively gave us the keys to our film archive by making it fully accessible to us for the first time. They helped bring it to life because their digitization and restoration isn't just high quality, it's beautiful. Jo is great to work with because she is as invested in our collection as we are, and understands what our business needs and when we need it.
At the heart of R3store is complete dedication to our detailed, professional and measured approach
At the heart of R3store is complete dedication to our detailed, professional and measured approach to understanding and appreciating the historic value of each piece of footage. We use technology and craftsmanship to restore and digitally preserve the worlds analogue libraries for a digital audience.
Through established techniques and meticulous observations, we appreciate when restorative procedures are too aggressive to retain the essential elements of a recording. It’s the craft involved in this judgement that sets R3store apart from our peers.
Underlying our service is an established methodology that has been designed to help r3store even the most delicate and damaged film. We are confident that our techniques work for any type of archive, with our experts recommending the most up-to-date and advanced systems of preservation available.
R3store Studios continually exceed expectations. Their expertise in digitisation and ability to handle a range of historic film and video materials is of crucial importance to us as an archive. But it is also the team's flexible approach, quick turnaround times and their commitment to deliver results of the highest standard that makes R3Store Studios a key service provider for London's Screen Archives.
Restore Studios bespoke services are up there with the best of them when it comes to remastering film materials for BFI DVD, Blu-ray and Theatrical distribution. The team are very well equipped with tackling the challenges that may arise when dealing with archive film materials and always work closely with the client to achieve nothing but the best results.
Working with the team at R3store continues to be such a rewarding experience - we really appreciate their expertise and patience. Our collection of artist-made films is very specialist but the results have been exceptional due to everyone at R3store's talent and professionalism.
Working with R3store Studios has been a hugely positive experience. We really appreciate their professionalism and the quality of the service they deliver. Big, or small, it can be daunting to embark on a digitisation project, but the team at R3store guided us every step of the way, going out of their way to support us and help make the complex seem simple.
R3store’s facilities at Poplar Business Park are a very welcome addition in this area of London and I was impressed by the efficient service provided by Jo Griffin and team. Not just the fast turnaround but the very reasonable pricing structure. On a subsequent job, manual digital restoration also proved necessary and, despite a looming deadline, clean files were on cue. High Resolution stock footage from 35mm is often required late in the post production process when time and budgets are seemingly exhausted. R3store Studios deliver quality results, whilst also addressing the challenge of tight schedules and economy of cost.
As a regional film archive we're always keen to work with specialists who understand the needs of small gauge collections, particularly 16mm amateur collections. We really value the time, expertise, and attention to detail that is needed to get the best results out of these films, and Jo and her team give us just that. It's so important to have confidence when every frame is so precious!
“Thank you so much for such an amazing day! Thank you for your generosity, kindness, professionalism and creative understanding. I really don't come across companies like yours very often whereby people understand that film is not only an industry but also a cultural and artistic practice. You deserve to go from strength to strength.”
Over the years we’ve restored numerous films together, and their professionalism of service, attention to detail, and all-around quality of work has always exceeded expectations. I think it’s worth a special mention that while R3store offers state-of-the-art digital services, they've also managed to maintain something incredibly valuable but sadly increasingly elusive in this industry - that being a world-class knowledge when it comes to all photochemical/film-based matters. It’s clear that the team at R3store care deeply about the work they do, and the projects we do together are a testament to this.
From our initial enquiry via the very modern chatbot on the R3store Studios website, to the delivery of a 4K restoration of our 35mm Movietone Charles and Diana wedding film just a few days later, R3store were an absolute joy to work with. I particularly appreciated the very clear communications with Jo Griffin and the complete understanding of our requirement for a quick turnaround. Gerry Gedge and Andrew O'Hagan have a wealth of experience and knowledge and were super helpful at explaining the restoration process. I simply cannot recommend the R3store team highly enough.
I am very pleased with the work you have done to preserve the old film that we now have for the years to come and for future generations.
I found some Super 8 films when clearing out the loft, all of it more than forty years old. I brought it to R3store and you assessed it, cleaned it, sorted it, edited it and digitised it and now I am sending it round the family for them to 'laugh' at, so thank you very much for an efficient and effective solution to returning hidden treasures to life.
Thank you for the excellent service you provided and if we find any more footage lurking in our archives we know exactly who to come to.
Safeguarding the world’s greatest sporting events and moments is a subject that has been close to IMG’s heart for many years. Working with equally caring partners such as the AELTC has been immensely rewarding. The work carried out by the IMG Library and R3Store has revealed footage of extraordinary historical value with some moments simply taking one’s breath away. IMG are proud to have been a partner in this important project.
We are proud to be carrying out this important work to help us celebrate a fundamental chapter in our history. We thank IMG and R3store Studios for their support and are looking forward to seeing fantastic scenes and moments uncovered during this process.
Thanks again for organising and making it such a smooth process - much appreciated!
We have enjoyed the professionalism and sincere passion for film of all the R3Store staff members involved. They all went the extra mile to make this project work, even under the difficult context of COVID19.
