The Fore River Sound Stage has been in business since June 1, 2011. We are located at the old South Portland armory building, 682 Broadway, South Portland, ME. In nearly two years we have shot countless commercials, music videos, and photo shoots. We have had two feature films shot at our location: the independent film "Backgammon" in June of 2012, and the short feature film "Watcher" in March of 2013. We have 10,000 square feet of shooting space, as well as room for office rental space and an in-house still photography studio.
The owners of the Fore River Soundstage are : Eric Matheson, Mark Rockwood, and Matt Berry. Eric has worked on over 80 Hollywood productions in his 40 years in the industry (only a select few are displayed on his IMDB page). Mark is a professional photographer, while Matt is finishing his last semester at the University of Southern Maine majoring in Business Administration.
We have been fortunate in the funding we have received, but the renovation of the studio is still ongoing. The major issue at our location is the current state of the roof.
The roof leaks, which has caused us to move our production equipment out from our storage space.
We have money set aside for further renovations, but we would rather use that money on the renovations of offices, prop rooms, and the main stage.
The cost of the repairs to the roof has been estimated at $18,000. We are seeking $10,000 to help in our movement in repairing the roof, any donation towards this cause is greatly appreciated.
