    "Kodak Instamatic"

    For those wanting to give it a try: A founding member of the Nashville Community Darkroom will give you a STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL on printmaking IN THE NASHVILLE COMMUNITY DARKROOM.

We will offer multiple times to choose from for your class, but will attempt to work with all backers at this tier to make sure they can attend. [Note: Beginners welcome. No need to bring anything with you; we'll supply the negative and the paper, though if you have a B&W negative you'd like to use, bring it!] You also get an invite to our EXCLUSIVE NASHVILLE COMMUNITY DARKROOM LAUNCH PARTY, as described in the "Polaroid" tier.

    "Canon"

    What about those that swing both ways? AC/DCs? Not everything can be analog, we get that. That's why two of our founding members (Allen and Emily) are offering to convert your old analog video footage to digital! They've done this before (trust them; they are experts), and can handle 16mm, 8mm, Super 8, VHS, and more. They'll physically clean your video (to make a clean transfer and preserve it), repair it as needed, and get it to you how you want it (digital files, DVDs, etc.). They'll do up to 10 "pieces" (i.e., reels, VHS tapes, etc.) for you.

    You also get an invite to our EXCLUSIVE NASHVILLE COMMUNITY DARKROOM LAUNCH PARTY, as described in the "Polaroid" tier. Finally, you'll receive a set of our HAND-PRINTED POSTCARDS, to get a little of that AC/DC feel. Analog? Digital? A little of both, please.

    [Note: If out-of-town, shipping of the film is not included (shipping of the post-cards is, however). You must either drop off/pick up your film or pay shipping to/from us -- we will contact you directly regarding shipping prices, as they will vary significantly depending on what you send.]
