My name is Daniele Carrer, and I was born in Italy in 1977.

After graduating from school, my first job was transferring super 8 and 8mm home movies to VHS tapes. It was the mid-1990s, and as No Doubt’s song “Don’t Speak” played on the radio; I couldn’t help but feel embarrassed about the final result. Back then, my boss used a camera to capture the films projected on a screen, and trust me, we can achieve far better quality with today’s technology.

During that period, my ultimate aspiration was to become a director. I started producing short films, but regrettably, I never had the opportunity to enter the professional movie industry. My most notable role in the audiovisual sector was being a story editor for a TV show aired by MTV Italy in the 2000s.

As that phase drew to a close, I tried to produce my own travel-related docu reality series. Unfortunately, the project did not pan out, and I realized that it was time for a change.

In 2013, I purchased my first film scanner and immersed myself in the study of restoration software.

Now, more than a decade later, with a few more white hairs on my head, a brand new state-of-the-art scanner, and a vast collection of thousands of film reels, I take immense pride in the fact that numerous documentary and TV show productions credit me in their titles (See the complete list on this page). Moreover, my YouTube channel has garnered over 120 thousand subscribers.

The most rewarding aspect, however, lies in connecting with new archive researchers who seek watermarked copies of my videos for pre-editing, engaging with independent film directors who entrust me with their aspirations, receiving messages from people worldwide who enjoy my films on the internet and express their gratitude, and knowing that I’m surrounded by a team of incredible people who give me new inspiration every day.
