“If I hadn’t have been a part of this program, I would have left school and I wouldn’t have given it a second thought,” explains Stevie Mizelle, a student featured in the new film IF YOU BUILD IT, which premiered in New York City last week. The feature length documentary chronicles the story of Studio H design innovators Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller as they turn a Bertie County, North Carolina shop class into a design studio and lead ten high school students in the development and build of full-scale projects of their very own. Forced to think outside of the proverbial box, the kids are pushed to hone both their skills and minds – a task that proves to be challenging yet rewarding. Director Patrick Creadon affectionately likens the film to “Extreme Home Makeover” meets “The Breakfast Club”. Inhabitat attended the premiere and checked the movie out for ourselves – read on to see what we thought!
