IN what is being described as a cross between Sweeny Todd and often-controversial dating app Grindr comes a short independent musical film that looks into the world of hook-up apps.
According to the film’s website, Grind evolves around characters Vincent and Thane on a collaborative effort to find male model Thane more than just a hook up by using online dating apps:
“Vincent is uncomfortable in his own skin but he’s witty and adroit on his favorite hook-up app.
“Thane is hot (like…incredibly hot) but he’s dumb and can’t express himself.
“When Thane asks Vincent to grind for him by combining his own underwear model pics with Vincent’s flirty texted banter, he’s certain the partnership will attract the clever guys who don’t take him seriously.
“Thane is introduced to a new class of men but Vincent gets addicted to the rush he’s always assumed the beautiful people feel as they all navigate the competitive, multi screened hook up culture of New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen.
“Grind takes a sexy and artistic look at the ways we connect in today’s multi screened hook up culture and asks, ‘do you really know who you’re talking to?'”
