On July 24, 2010, thousands of people around the world uploaded videos of their lives to YouTube to take part in Life in a Day, a historic cinematic experiment to create a documentary film about a single day on earth.
Now, it’s time to watch their story unfold on the big screen.
Directed by Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald, Life in a Day wowed audiences at the Sundance, Berlin and SXSW film festivals and during its YouTube world premiere in January.
Level 1 Presents the Official Trailer for the 12th annual feature length action ski film!
The earth turns and the sun disappears over the horizon. Flip the switch, and the lights go out. Slumber begins and the mind awakes, taking us to places we’ve never been and witnessing things not yet seen or imagined.
From the enchanted powder forests of Japan, the historic streets of Moscow, to the unthawed mountains of Western America, and everywhere in between — Level 1 invites you into our spectrum of reality to see a succession of images, visions, sounds, and sensations quite unlike those of the conscious world.
Experience it for yourself — our dream, our vision of skiing.

The Pool was more than a BMX comp, it was one of the most extra-ordinary gatherings of the BMX community this century.
From the draining of a soon to be demolished local authority swimming pool in Dagenham, East London, into a world class park in less than two weeks was a feat in itself, but to see the diversity and level or riding on display at the launch event was truly remarkable.
40 international riders with a brand new team format saw non-comp riders, veterans, street destroyers and park animals all throw down into something far better than we could have dreamt of.

“Sometimes the Stars” is a gorgeous new song from Adelaide, Australia band The Audreys, taken from their 2010 album of the same name. The accompanying short animated film, produced by Luke Jurevicius and directed by Ari Gibson & Jason Pamment, is about a lost girl’s journey through a surreal landscape, and her yearning to make a connection in this distant yet strangely familiar world.

FITC, the Design & Technology events company celebrated their 10th annual flagship event in Toronto this year and MK12 produced a short title film for the occasion.
The FITC Toronto 2011 festival took place May 2nd-4th 2011 with over 1100 attendees and featured over 75 design & technology presenters including MK12’s own Ben Radatz and Shaun Hamontree, as well as legendary Kyle Cooper and many others. See the event details at FITC.ca

FITC has produced over 50 events since 2002, with over 20,000 attendees through 19 cities around the world including Toronto, Amsterdam, Tokyo, San Francisco, Chicago, Seoul, New York, Los Angeles, and many more. From Flash to Motion Design, FLEX to AIR, Mobile and more, each FITC event stands as a unique and exciting experience that inspires, educates and challenges.
Based in Kansas City, Missouri, MK12 is a design and filmmaking collective with acclaim in both commercial and artistic arenas. Founded in 2000 by art school refugees Jed Carter, Tim Fisher, Matt Fraction and Ben Radatz and later joined by designer / composer Shaun Hamontree and partner 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. MK12 has been sought after to direct numerous commercial & network-based projects and has also provided graphic design & animation for feature films such as Stranger than Fiction, The Kite Runner, Holy Wars and Quantum of Solace.
MK12’s experimental & 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 NY-based painter Brian Alfred — was inducted into the Guggenheim’s permanent collection.
MK12 continues to produce original content for television and cinema, and it’s most recent film, “MK12’s History of America”, proves to be their most ambitious work to date, merging experimental design and traditional storytelling to dramatic effect.
