Your favorite movies get (fake) sequels at iam8bit
My favorite piece is a piece that is a sequel to something I've never seen, which is the Dark Crystal.
My favorite piece tonight is the Tron piece.
[INAUDIBLE] Superman movie, and I just appreciated the optimism in that piece so much.
It's true, your favorite cult classics are getting sequels, [INAUDIBLE]
Wait, what is I Am 8 Bit?
We make rad stuff.
Maybe I can take a crack at this.
I Am 8 Bit is where the geekiest fandoms become cool.
We produce art shows.
Experiences also come into that.
Like there's a cool
Things, fans can interact with.

I am [UNKNOWN] was founded over ten years ago and with that pounding, John and Amanda needed a space that can handle pretty much anything they could dream of.
Base where in right now is in old videos.

For many attendees, this wasn't their first time at [INAUDIBLE].

It's just meant to be whatever you need it to be.
Our website is always offering everything that is available in the store, with very few exception.
So, if we have art on the walls, it's also on our website.
And we ship worldwide.
There are a lot of people out there who think geek pop culture and fine art shouldn't mix, but fortunately for us, IAM8BIT has a decidedly different opinion.
Art is for everybody, so it's not just about
Putting a poster on your wall, it's about caring about that thing, and having experience with that art, telling a story.
