About da Palmer Film

Da Palmer Film is a small production company, located in South Tyrol in the north of Italy.

It was founded in 2001 as Blue Star Film and changed its name to Da Palmer Film in 2005, as Blue Star Film became an independent company in Munich, Germany. Both companies are in close cooperation.

Da Palmer Film produces mainly documentaries, short and feature length fiction films, or collaborates with other production companies mainly in the camera department.

As for production equipment, an editing suite (Final Cut Pro Studio, Deck Link Extreme), DV cameras (JVC GY-DV 700 WEcl, Canon XL1) and super16mm cameras (AATON Ltr 7, BOLEX SBM, BOLEX H16reflex with underwater housing) are available.

Productions in super8/single8 mm (FUJICA zc1000, Beaulieu ZM4, Bauer A512) and telecine services are also offered.

IMPORTANT: before sending materials always contact me, as I'm doing the transfer personally, and therefore in periods where I'm  working on film projects it might take longer to get the films back.

Always indicate the desired frame rate, in case you don't know the original frame rate I will use the one I believe is the right one.

Please check the junctures on the film, the Projectors I use are very gentle to the film, nothing the less old or half broken junctures will easily break
and have then to be repaired, this costs time and I charge for every juncture I have to remake 0,50€.

I do NOT transfer copyright protected materials or materials you do not own the rights for.

Maximum reel size for 8mm, super8 and single8 is 240m / 800ft.

Maximum reel size for 16mm is 600m / 2000ft.

For telecine I use modified Projectors from the BAUER STUDIO SERIES.The images get captured directly from the filmplane with a professional single sensor super35 video camera that is connected to the projector and syncs it perfectly. From there it gets transferred directly to a computer for further elaboration in ADOBE PREMIER CS 6.0 and DVD STUDIO PRO4 or ENCORE DVD 4. For super8 I use a BAUER T610  that captures precisely 25f/sec. For N8 I use a N8-modified BAUER T502 that captures 25f/sec. For 16mm I use a BAUER P8 TS universal  that captures precisely 25f/sec. Other frame rates are obtained by changing them in ADOBE PREMIER Pro CS6. For the HD files, the footage will be interpreted at the correct framerate, while for SD or DVD/BluRay the footage will be converted to 25f/sec(DVD) and 24f/sec (BluRay).
