A trailer for a proposed documentary about Smart Studios, featuring Dave Grohl, has been revealed online – watch below.

Filmaker Wendy Schneider is raising money for the project via Kickstarter. The proposed film, called The Smart Studios Story will tell the history of the Wisconsin recording studio set up by Butch Vig and Steve Marker to produce bands including Nirvana and the Smashing Pumpkins. The studio closed in 2010 after 28 years.

The film will feature interviews with Dave Grohl, Billy Corgan, Shirley Manson and Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace among many others.

"If you've ever been touched by the music of Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, L7, Killdozer, Die Kreuzen, Tar Babies, Against Me!, Death Cab For Cutie, etc. you've been touched by the music created at Smart Studios," a statement on the Kickstarter page reads.

The Kickstarter campaign to get the film raised has already raised over $25,000 (£15,000) of its $120,000 (£72,000) target.
