BURSTSCRATCH 2.020 >>> about the Telecinema

Today we propose you to help us for the installation of a Telecinema machine.This machine was built in 2000 to digitize analog film formats including Super 8, 16mm, super 16and 35 mm in FULL HD.

Burstscratch purchased this machine in Berlin in August 2019; we brought it back to Strasbourg, hoisted it into the studio, and quickly reassembled the annex computer equipment. However, the machine is missing some crucial tools, including monitoring enclosures, control panels, calibration
monitors, digital storage space, software licensing, and a few spare parts


We have already received a lot of interest in our new telecine services, solely through word-of-mouth. The reaction has been very promising. We believe that once the machine is up and running, it will financially support Burstscratch’s full operation. Unfortunately, Burstscratch doesn’t have the funds to complete installation of the Telecinema. The acquisition has already put Burstscratch in debt.

The financial conditions for us to survive are:

 - If we raise 8,000 euros, we will pay our debts and add a little to the treasury.
- If we raise 10,000 euros, we can pay our debts, add a little to the treasury and pay for the required parts to make the Telecinema operational.
- If we raise more than 10,000 euros, we can pay our debts, add a little to the treasury, pay for the required parts to make the Telecinema operational and set Burstscratch up for long-term success.


The pieces of 35 mm film, cut according to your taste:Pieces of 35 mm film that we kept among those past years, which we will reprocess with different chemistry recipes to add some magic.

Your name will appear on our website no matter the amount of your gift, and you also will be invited for a special visit in our laboratory, at the occasion of a friendly cocktail, once the campaign is finished.
