Back in 2011, I decided I needed some designated studio space to shoot and generally work on some of my projects. So I took it upon myself to clean up my old shitty garage and turn it into just that.
Almost three years have past since then and now I’m moving away from my childhood home. Unfortunately where I’m going I won’t have a studio space anymore. But I can take trading that for feeling safe in my own home.
I’ve made quite a few things in here whether it be a place to make props, shoot on a greenscreen or build a set. I even recorded the first few episodes of The Pink Elephant Podcast from there.
You can see The Grindhouse being put to use in such films as The Legend of Daniel, K.G.A.G.P. and Left to Burn.
Why have I given it the name of “The Grindhouse”? Mostly because I’ve used while under the “Grindhouse Films” label. Also because it often looks like it’s owned by a serial killer.
It was constantly a dreadful mess. Full of dirt, spiders and old car parts. It always made people who weren't used to being in it uncomfortable. But, it served it's purpose while it lasted.
I’m going to miss this home (sort of) away from home. Hopefully some time in the not so distant future, it can be replaced with something better.
