PRODUCTION NOTES:

This film was the result of footage collected between 2010-2012 while K. Kypers was an animation student at the University of the Arts. The first incarnation of the film appeared on YouTube in 2013 as a 9-part series. In 2018, to celebrate Vaschel's 10th birthday, K. revisited the footage to make an improved cut of the movie (tighter editing, improved sound, adding music, etc.) for a 10th birthday screening at the Milkweed art gallery space in Sugar Loaf, NY.

Since the filming of Vaschel: Portrait of a Paper Bag, K. prefers to be called "K" over "Kevin" and to use feminine or gender neutral pronouns. This film is a reflection of Vaschel & K.'s life as it was in 2010-2012.
