White Horse Pictures, an independent production company specializing in music documentaries, undertook a Bee Gees retrospective film. Historic video footage of the Gibbs brothers from their debut as a band in 1958 through to the present day needed to be compiled. In many cases, the archival footage was captured on obsolete media formats that required highly skilled transfer on antique equipment.
“I’ve worked with other [archive] houses, and they’re all great, but Iron Mountain Entertainment Services probably has the most capabilities. If you’ve got something weird, you take it to them.”
— Aly Parker, Supervising Producer, “The Bee Gees”: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart”
The IMES team digitized and transferred historic Bee Gees video from the early 70's through the mid 80's, including interviews, home movies and various TV performances, as well as a film format concert.
Overall, the team transferred 200 video tapes in various obsolete formats, 40 audio cassettes, and 23 film transfers of Regular 8 and Super 8 format.
