Shareholder Update

Just a note to shareholders: 

The company remains actively focused on managing and growing its business. 

We will be issuing Press Release(s) with detail, but just to update all on a few things: 

DTCC ‘CHILL’-  We have discussed the issue with DTCC and were directed to a list of brokerage firms and market makers which can perform DD on MIKP and go to bat for the company for re-instatement.  Consultants for MIKP are actively engaged with said parties in efforts to remedy the Chill.  We will update frequently or as often as steps are made in the right direction here.  DTCC was accommodating with information and the reason stated for the Chill was an unusually large amount of shares deposited at once by a third party and that this can be remedied with the help of a sponsoring firm.  

It is the company’s belief that said shares are now freely trading and recent market pressure will subside.  That said, the company commits to shareholders to be both cautious and judicious moving forward, aligned with parties that understand our goals and challenges.  We will keep shareholders abreast of notable company changes, project benchmarks and financing and capital arrangements toward company growth and industry opportunities.  As well, the company will work to settle debt arrangements in a timely manner in anticipation of revenues from White Space and other projects to achieve an attractive balance sheet toward an uplist to OTCBB when appropriate.  

Current Share Structure: 

a/s: 2.5b

o/s:1.56b

free trading: 986m

In short, the Authorized (and outstanding) was increased to make room for a major deal sourced at AFM and currently in negotiations which, if agreed upon, will bring an immediate boost to MIKP’s balance sheet with a significant increase in assets and a solid revenue opportunity for the company in the entertainment/feature film production sector.  If for any reason the deal does not come to fruition, 500m shares will remain with the transfer agent in certificate form, restricted for 1 year beginning November 2011. 

As well, part of the increased shares otherwise was done for overall company growth initiatives in line with the company’s business plan (including financing for a series of low-budget, high margin genre films which have been contracted but TBA, re-up of George R.R. Martin’s The Skin Trade and another literary property to be announced.)  

The latter is a true story published by Warner Brothers books and written by an award winning journalist.  We’re confident that progress here will make for a stronger market and overall benefit for the company’s new and long-time supporters. 

www.enterwhitespace.com is in post-production and Producers have been at work all weekend making notes on a rough-cut edit toward implementation of visual effects, score and other finishing elements.  Due to findings at AFM in which, basically, the more effects the film has, the more it sells for, Producers have identified additional VFX opportunities within the film which pushes completion out by a few months but should effectively increase overall ROI.  Producers are thrilled with the edit to date and expect finalization and sale to be a major catalyst for growth in the company and its stock. 

Meanwhile, the White Space cast members have been very active in Hollywood, including Holt McCallany’s recent casting in Warner Brothers’ ‘Gangster Squad’ and Kodi Kitchen’s contract role in ‘General Hospital’. 

As well, the company will be adding a new Board Member and announcement of an executive at the top of their field who has joined forces with Mike The Pike Productions is forthcoming.

SIGNS OF LIFE IN THE HYPERION GALAXY

I’m not sure how many remember the 2001 Anthrax Attacks- when everyone was scared to open their mail because you didn’t know if it was a care package from Grandma or just a healthy dose of Bacillus Anthracis waiting to snuff you out; but this is kind of how I felt when producing partner Ryan Colucci sent me the latest cut of White Space.  

The one thing we (WS producers) all know- is that we have a high-margin product on our hand.  If we learned one thing from AFM it’s that there’s an insatiable industry appetite for Disaster Films, Thinking-person’s horror and Effects Driven Sci-Fi films like White Space.  So profit margin is there- pretty much built in from the get, thanks to some hard work from a talented crew and a win-win deal with our VFX masterminds, www.filmworksfx.com.   

However, from a creative standpoint, after viewing the first rough cut, I can’t say I was doing cartwheels.  The screenplay – written by Clay McLeod Chapman and Ryan Colucci- is top-notch, solid – and I wanted so very much for our final product to be as loyal to the page as possible.  This wasn’t exactly the case.  Again, from a product standpoint— great- check, please.  But creatively- I knew we had a much better film on our hands and thankfully, Colucci- was straight up, Judd Nelson, Relentless, in tracking down the man with a plan— Eric Potter–  an immensely talented editor with a VFX background.  His credits speak for themselves with work on movies like Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and The Lincoln Lawyer, starring Matthew McConaughey, to name a few. 

His name may as well be HARRY Potter because he turned out sheer magic in comparison to the initial cut I reviewed.  I made notes on the cut last night from around 11pm to 3am and the only thing missing was the popcorn.  

This is the movie we set out to make. It’s a Monster. Brooding and mysterious with thrills and jumps along the way through to an exciting conclusion with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a sci-fi thriller about a deep space crew gone mad as they get in over their heads on the chase for a black market take, disturbing a legendary beast that will do anything to protect its territory.

Mike The Pike Productions, Inc. to Attend American Film Market® ; Launches Discussions with Sales Agents and Buyers on Sci-Fi Thriller ‘White Space’, George R.R. Martin’s ‘The Skin Trade’

 

LOS ANGELES, CA –-October 27, 2011- Mike the Pike Productions, Inc. (OTC: MIKP) announces today it will be attending American Film Market in Early November to showcase sci-fi thriller, White Space, starring Holt McCallany and its Werewolf Chiller, ‘The Skin Trade’ based on the novella by Game of Thrones creator, George R.R. Martin.

The AFM is the premier global marketplace where Hollywood’s decision-makers and trendsetters all gather under one roof.  Unlike a film festival, the AFM is a marketplace where production and distribution deals are closed.  In just eight days, more than $800 million in deals will be sealed – on both completed films and those in every stage of development and production. 

MTP CEO, Mark B. Newbauer, will attend the event with materials from both projects, meeting with top executives in discussions toward a successful sales deal on ‘White Space’ and key partnerships for ‘GRRM’s The Skin Trade’. T

The team is in initial stages of post-production on White Space, and all are confident that meetings at this point will allow the team to secure interest early in the game, maximizing full potential on sales toward multi-million dollar returns. 

MIKP execs are confident that progress made through Q4 this year will lead to exponential growth in 2012.  Newbauer states, “Baby steps have us at a point where every move we make is an integral benchmark. Each leading to a higher level of industry position, brand and profitability alongside powerful market growth for our shareholders.”
