MK12 to lecture at KCAI April 1st. no joke.

MK12 is a Kansas City-based design and filmmaking collective with acclaim in both commercial and artistic arenas. MK12’s work constantly challenges the boundaries between narrative structure and experimental storytelling via juxtapositions of live action, graphic design, nostalgic influence and new technologies. The firm was founded in 2000 by a group comprised primarily of KCAI alumni. MK12 has been sought after to direct numerous commercial and network-based projects and also has provided graphic design and animation for feature films such as “Stranger than Fiction” and “The Kite Runner.” The studio's experimental and short film catalogue has been featured in many international film festivals and has been published in design and trade journals worldwide. Most recently, their short film “Overload” a collaboration with New York-based painter Brian Alfred was inducted into the Guggenheim's permanent collection. MK12 continues to produce original content for television and cinema, and its most recent film, “MK12’s History of America,” proved to be its most ambitious work to date, merging experimental design and traditional storytelling to dramatic effect. More information about this and other projects can be found at

7 p.m. on Thursday April 1st in Epperson Auditorium
