MK12 is a design and filmmaking collective based in Kansas City, Missouri, with acclaim in both commercial and artistic arenas. Founded in 2000 by art school refugees Jed Carter, Timmy Fisher, Matt Fraction and Ben Radatz and later joined by designer / composer Shaun Hamontree and computer guru Chad Perry, 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.

Their experimental & short film catalogue has been featured in many international film festivals and exhibitions, including Brian Alfred—was inducted into the Guggenheim’s permanent collection.

MK12’s success on the film festival circuit has led to their involvement in many large-scale commercial projects, including title sequence design and in-film FX for films like Another Way to Die" earned them a Grammy nomination in the ‘Best Short Form Music Video’ category in 2009.

MK12 has also been involved in several game promotions, most recently for Harmonix’s Beatles & Green Day Rock Band entries as well as Microsoft’s flagship Xbox game Alan Wake. 

In 2003, MK12 joined forces with Los Angeles-based production company The Ebeling Group, who continue to represent and produce for the studio.
