5x5 A Documentary Film follows the lives of 5 design students at Parsons The New School for Design for 5 years.  Filming began in 2010 as all 5 subjects were freshmen and continues now as some graduate, some continue on with their educations and some get jobs.  Updates are available on the 5x5 Blog page and will be as current as possible as editing begins.

Our cast consists of 5 young designers living and learning in New York City and then moving on into the world.  This film has seen them grow from their first days in college when they were young, unformed, enthusiastic individuals.  They have grown to become mature, more grounded thinkers each with their own stories of successes and failures.  You can view each of their bios here.  

Filming is wrapping up this summer as we attempt to capture the final days our subjects will be available. Annamarie will be leaving for Australia very soon where she will join Rachel briefly before pursuing her own interests. Paul has had some developments that we are eager to talk to him about and Perry has just returned from a long trip.
