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 bought my first film scanner, immersing myself in the study of restoration software.

Now, over a decade later, with a few more white hairs in 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 Footage For Pro in their titles. Moreover, my YouTube channel has 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 finding new ideas by talking to the wonderful members of my incredible team.

I am genuinely grateful to all those who have played a role in realizing my dreams.
