On November 29, 2022, Forbes released their annual lists of high-performing young business and industry leaders. This year’s 30 Under 30 featured Interlochen alumnus Nic Weinfeld (IAC 09, IAA 10-12) in the Marketing & Advertising category.

At 28, Weinfeld is the founder and CEO of Five to Sixty, a production company that specializes in content for social media. What began as a small team of Brooklyn producers eventually became a commercial production partner with a global reach. Weinfeld has worked with leading brands including Nike, Spotify, Pepsi, and L'Oreal. Earlier this year, he filmed a campaign for Starbucks with fellow Interlochen alumna Ashley Park. His recent work for Popeye’s earned him a 2022 Bronze Cannes Lion and a 2022 Ad Agency Creative award for best product launch.

Weinfeld studied Film Making and Motion Picture Arts (now Film & New Media) during his time at Interlochen. “This truly would have not been possible without Interlochen,” he says.
