TSTC 5X5 Short Films are being produced as part of the “This School, This City” project that celebrates the University of North Carolina School of the Arts’ 50-year relationship with its home city of Winston-Salem. When completed, the TSTC 5X5 Short Films will be a family of five 5-minute profiles of UNCSA alumni whose life trajectories have passed through this school and this city en route to a variety of places, experiences, and careers. A collaborative project led by UNCSA School of Filmmaking faculty member John Le Blanc, the full set of 5X5 shorts will highlight 5 alumni, including 1 from each decade of the school’s history and 1 from each of the 5 arts schools. With this project, the school turns its artistic eye on itself to illuminate its history in a new way.
