Ok, now that I have got that off of my chest, I have to mention Jonathan Canlas’ workshop, Film Is Not Dead, in Hawaii, no less, where he will be teaching people like you and me about going back to film and using it to capture moments at weddings. Here is the official website.
While that’s certainly a noble gesture, I am selling
some all of my dated film [stored in a cool dry place of course]. The first person to email me with the subject heading – “FILM IS DEAD, DIGITIAL IS KING” – gets about 100 rolls of 35mm film for $100. That includes shipping within the borders of the United States of America. And, yes, I do accept PayPal. The film is a mix of color and black & white and I declare openly that I am not to be held liable in any way for its use or misuse and that I cannot guarantee results, success from your experimentations with said film.
For those doing the math, at an average of about $5/roll, you are saving $400 (ok, ok, it’s not fresh film but whatever …)
Step on up if you are truly old skool and proud of it!
