The future of GRIME Studios and the creative community of Portland, Maine is the subject of our most recent documentary project. GRIME is a building brought to life by 20 years of music, art, poetry, and emotion.
Today, 30 bands have access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No other space in Portland allows the freedom these bands need to practice whenever they can.
Tomorrow is a different story. GRIME will be torn down within the next year to clear space for a new development.
GRIME front man Justin Curtsinger has worked tirelessly to relocate the studios. On the 7th building in his search, Justin took a leap of faith and signed a 10-year lease.
He’s got the building; he’s got the plans and the contractors lined up; all that’s left is to raise far north of $100,000 to fund the buildout.
