Executive producer/CEO Ari Kuschnir and director Scott Thrift launched Brooklyn-based production company m ss ng p eces in 2005 as a nimble, two-person outfit known for bringing high production value to films on new digital platforms. Since then, the company added partners Kate Oppenheim and director Josh Nussbuam and has made a name for itself for creating films for an impressive list of partners such as Google, the TED conference and former Veep Al Gore.
In the past year alone, the shop was behind the viral film that gave the beta-deprived a glimpse at what it feels behind Google glass. It’s also created the stellar lineup of artist films being rolled out by the Red Bull Music Academy. Not to mention, it’s creating products, too. Via Kickstarter, Mssng Peces launched “The Present,” the first annual clock that tells time in seasons.
