Mike the Pike Productions, Inc. ($MIKP) subsidiary, Saint James Films, LLC (SJF) is pleased to announce that it has secured the International distribution rights to David W. Edwards’ supernatural thriller, ‘Nightscape’ . The film hits worldwide markets at next week’s Cannes film market (Marché du Film 2013) via our distribution partner TomCat Films, LLC. The deal includes a 50% equity stake in net sales for SJF.
We are thrilled to license this property as part of our offerings at this year’s Cannes. It’s a fast ride filled with visual effects and plot laid out nicely over an energetic electronic score.
SJF will be represented by TomCat at the world’s largest film market this month with Nightscape and 11 other titles including Lizzie Borden’s Revenge, Attack of the Jurassic Shark, Captain Battle, etc. The Company has also partnered with various producers to ensure increased volume in production on projects for worldwide distribution and an ever-increasing SJF library. What I’m truly thrilled about is that number. We only started producing and acquiring films in January of 2012 and just over a year later we’re looking at a dozen titles. As this number continues to increase, we’ll soon see self-sustaining revenues for the company and inevitable momentum in company growth and brand recognition.
Mike the Pike Productions is a USOTC publicly traded feature film, television and graphic novels production company currently working on titles such as White Space and The Skin Trade, from George R.R. Martin, the world-renown author behind HBO’s Game of Thrones. It is currently trading in the Grey Market and we’ve secured a market maker in Southern California that has filed a Form 211 with FINRA toward reinstatement to the Pink Sheets. The process hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing, but it’s overall encouraging to see that our market maker is optimistic regarding our potential for reinstatement. Our last submission to FINRA included LOIs, Contracts, emails, service agreements, letters of explanation and then some, substantiating each and every claim and statement made via press release by the company since early 2010.
It’s quite a bit to go through and was initially reviewed by our market maker’s compliance department prior to submission around 3 weeks ago. My hope is for a timely response there, but there’s no indication as to when they will answer and if that answer will be final or a request for more information.
That said, we will be making regular announcements via blog or press release until that decision and hope that shareholders will follow us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/MTPfb for frequent updates as company social media has now been deemed acceptable by the SEC as a dissemination portal for company information.
