Even though Studio H has moved across country from North Carolina to California, their legacy and impact on rural Bertie County lives on in the documentary “IF YOU BUILD IT.” After a successful Kickstarter campaign to edit and produce the film, the first screening launches on January 8, 2014, in–most appropriately–Raleigh, NC, before moving to the IFC Center in New York City on January 10th. If you were able to attend the pre-screening at Public Interest Design Week earlier this year, you know that it is a film not to be missed. Director Patrick Creadon describes the multidimensional story best:
The making of IF YOU BUILD IT was an extraordinary learning experience for Christine and me. Not only was this a challenging film to produce and an extremely nuanced and difficult story to tell, the lessons that all of us learned in Studio H—students, teachers, and filmmakers—went far beyond the lessons of how to design and build things… Imagine a world with better, more creative problem solvers. That’s what Studio H is about, that’s what IF YOU BUILD IT is really about, and that’s why we are so thrilled to share it with others.
