SIGNS OF LIFE IN THE HYPERION GALAXY

Holt McCallany in sci-fi movie White Space.  Visit the official site at www.enterwhitespace.com

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.”

Check out our featured White Space crew member of the day— Dave Casper.  Dave was 1st A.D. on set — fun to work with and professional through and through— He motivates, disciplines and keeps the shoot smooth, under budget and on time- and whatever the moment calls for- he does it, for the project, and tirelessly so.   We had such an amazing crew on this picture and Dave, as the director’s mouthpiece, was a thrill to work with.  That, and the fact that I’ve never seen anyone wear a Kool-Aid shirt better than you, Dave.  How many colors do you have that thing in?
