We’ve written about the nonprofit design agency Project H Design [1], founded by Inhabitat colleague and humanitarian designer Emily Pilloton [2], many times before. Most recently, Emily and her Project H cohorts have been plugging away at Studio H [3], an intensive and one-of-a-kind high school design/build program in rural Bertie County, North Carolina, in which her students earn college and high school credit over an academic year as they design and build projects for their community. Last year, they built public chicken coops and a 2,000-square-foot farmers market pavilion for their hometown of Windsor.

They’ve been working with filmmakers Patrick Creadon and Christine O’Malley (of Wordplay and IOUSA fame) for 14 months now to tell the story of Studio H, the students, and the vision of using design within public education and rural communities. The film will debut in 2012, but needs some help in funding final production. You can back the film project via Kickstarter here [4] (any little bit helps!). Plus, there are some sweet gifts for donations – Studio H schwag, professional architectural photography of their projects, lunches and events with the film crew, and even an on-set visit with the film’s producer, Neal Baer, former executive producer of Law and Order: SVU.
