Film Friday: Get Inspired by Design and Filmmaking Collective MK12

Start your creativity-fueled weekend off right by checking out the work of MK12, the Kansas City based design and filmmaking collective.

According to their website, “MK12’s success on the film festival circuit has lead to their involvement in many large-scale commercial projects, including title sequence design and in-film FX for films like Quantum of Solace, The Kite Runner and Stranger than Fiction, and music videos for Hot Hot Heat, Guided by Voices and Common’s single Go, which earned them an MTV Video Music Award nomination for ‘Best Hip Hop Video’ in 2005. Their collaborative video for Jack White and Alicia Keys’ single Another Way to Die earned them a Grammy nomination in the ‘Best Short Form Music Video’ category in 2009. Their experimental & short film catalogue has been featured in many international film festivals and exhibitions including Sundance, South by Southwest, the Sao Paulo Biennial, the Zurich design Museum, The Walker Arts Center, Art Basel, Prix Ars Electronica and the Mile High Horror Film Festival, which awarded them a “Most Innovative Short Film” title for their entry Follow the Sun in 2011.” Scroll down to check out some of their selected work.
