Client Testimonials

Nulight clearly have a passion for film and their knowledge, experience and attention to detail in every step of the process, from prep to digital restoration, is evident in the final product – our film has never looked better!
James Gibbs, Media Technology Officer
Working with Nulight to restore our early 16mm films was simply a delight. The negative rolls were often in a delicate condition but Nulight took great care in ensuring that every detail was preserved and restored and beautifully graded. The results were simply staggering, suffice it to say I’d never seen these films looking so good, even when they were prints fresh from the laboratory.
David Sproxton, Co-Founder
LUX has worked with Nulight Studios on a number of archival film scanning projects and we would recommend them highly, their experience, knowledge and care is truly unparalleled.
Benjamin Cook, Director
After researching facilities, costs and recommendations within the industry, we approached Bristol-based restoration specialists Nulight Studios. From our first enquiry, their helpful approach guided us through all the processes and options, enabling us to find most creatively appropriate and cost-effective route to the restoration.
Ian Mackinnon, Co-Founder
Even when working to tight deadlines, Nulight delivered to a very high standard. As producers, the workflow process was simple and easy, their staff a pleasure to work with and pricing estimates were always accurate. I highly recommend Nulight’s services.
Sarah Peat, Executive Producer
Communication is excellent, you are kept informed of progress, can view the material online and request any tweaks which are dealt with promptly and efficiently. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nulight to anyone looking to have their film scanned and restored to the highest standards possible.
James Gibbs, Media Technology Officer
We wanted to re-transfer some footage from 20 year old broadcast neg. The reels were not properly logged and it could have been too expensive a proposition. Sam and his team worked out the simplest and most cost effective way to eye-match what we needed. They then processed our selects to produce stunning 4K quality images that absolutely stand up against the footage we shot on 6K cameras.
John Capner, Producer
Nulight scanned our original negative at high resolution and carried out meticulous frame by frame restoration work before re-grading the digital files. Textures and details that had been lost and forgotten over two decades are now astonishingly vivid. I highly recommend Nulight – they have a very professional and supportive approach and their eye for quality has been amazing.
