Converting old projector movies to dvd

hi all

can anyone out there enlighten me how to transfer old projector reel movies to dvd.
I have played around with the idea that whilst the projector movie is up on the screen I refilm it with my camcorder. However, the end result is not the best.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

PS I have done a search via Google but all I seem to find are “transfer services” and that is not what I want. I want to try and do it myself.


The camcorder idea or some derivitave thereof is probably your only way - without taking it to a professional that would convert it to VHS or DVD-

Good Luck-
