Watch: Grind (2014) Short Film/Musical

Written and directed by Zachary Halley, Grind is an interesting mix of short film and music video. The story line follows a few friends navigating the world of hookup apps while the people mysteriously go missing in their city. We won't divulge too much more info because we don't want to give spoilers. Grind also, has won itself a ton of awards at LGBT film festivals around the world including:

Best Short Film- Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival
Best Overall Short Film, Best Cinematography and Outstanding Artistic Achievement- FilmOut San Diego
Best LGBT Film- NYC Downtown Shorts Film Festival
Best LGBT Film and Audience Favorite (LGBT Film) at SENE in Providence, RI

Here's their official synopsis:
GRIND is a short film musical that 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?”

Once you get into the rhythm of the back and forth acting scenes interspersed with well done music numbers, Grind is a pretty entertaining film. It's definitely worth 34 minutes of your time!
