Some people want to be the prom queen, the soccer champ, or the star of the high school musical. Matt just wants to be a regular guy on the street - except his street is Rivington in Manhattan, home to skinny jeans and energy drinks, models, and the kids who party 24/7. Does he have what it takes to be made into a New York hipster? Or will he prove too pure and too safe to play with the scenesters? Find out now, on MADE.
Shruti Ganguly Producer/Director Shruti is the marketing director of League of Artisans, a company dedicated to economic and sustainable development in India. When she’s not trying to change the world, you will find her on the set of some Bollywood film or directing some other type of spoof. She also really enjoys Scrabble.
Faran Krentcil Writer/Producer Faran is a writer based in New York City, where she causes trouble at ImaginarySocialite.com and style drama at Fashionista.com. Her pieces also appear in New York Magazine and Nylon. Faran is currently writing a play and a novel, but she's getting distracted by eyeliner, Jack Daniels, and 3 am dance parties. Oh well.
Matthew Tritt Actor/Producer Matthew, a senior project manager of Urban Builders Group, has directed and produced numerous award winning films. Several which have graced the Cannes Film Festival (among others). He is currently in the midst of an existential funk which, with the aid of several friends as you know, led to his transformation into an ultimate hipster. He hopes that these skills will provide him with the fashion and DJ skills he needs to get through his 30s. (We believe he'll always be a Jersey boy at heart)
Editor Tyler Peck Tyler is an editor and works at Consulate LTD, a film editing company based in NYC. When he wasn't working on Kanye's Stronger video, he was diligently cutting the Hipster Made spoof. He usually works until 2 am, has a sick fascination with Jason Bourne, is psyched that Rage is back, and has never been to MisShapes.
