in the Mask
In 2008, Kip Weeks starred as “The Man in the Mask” in the horror film The Strangers. Now he lives in Portland, Maine and runs an eco-friendly art supply company with his family.
But Kip longs to return to filmmaking and is on a mission to resurrect his former career.
THE MAN IN THE MASK is a documentary following Kip’s journey to pursue his lifelong dream, while also trying to balance his obligations to his wife, family, and growing business.
It’s a deeply personal story. But also an eerily relatable story about the highs and lows of being in the film industry, and the irreversible costs that come from a fleeting taste of fame.
