 Pretty Awesome—- GEORGE R.R. MARTIN graces us with his presence today.  Check out his post about The Skin Trade on his very own blog. When I first optioned the story for www.mtpprods.com, I was drawn to it on several levels and, as we continue to develop the project, we are full-on living, breathing these characters and the universe in which they exist.  

It’s unarguable, GRRM is well deserving of his recent accolades, which have been a long time coming— one of Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People, USA Today’s Author of the Year, and New York Times Bestseller, with much thanks HBO’s production of George’s ‘Game of Thrones’.   As an auteur, his work is being enjoyed en masse- he’s becoming a brand of sorts- and it’s this fervor that surrounds his work as of late, that makes the project that much more exciting.  We loved him and his work well before GoT—but now, it’s as if this project can be rightly celebrated by so many who recognize his genius, that may have overlooked the project otherwise before. 
'nuff said— bottom line— Get ready for a twist-and-turn murder mystery like no other you've ever seen before— and much thanks to George R.R. Martin, Vince Gerardis, Ryan Colucci, Beth Newbauer and Stacey Parks of www.filmspecific.com for being an integral part of it all.

Thank you to all who have supported us to date and welcome to those that have just taken notice.  2011 was quite a year for the company— I’ll do my best to spare you the cliche of an overly detailed lookback— but I can’t help but be thankful for the opportunity we had this year to take the motion pictures division full force with sci-fi thriller White Space, now in post-production.  Much thanks goes to producing partner, Ryan Colucci and his Spoke Lane Entertainment, for bringing the project to our table.  
White Space is a deep space monster movie set amidst a classic tale of vengeance and obsession, is high-concept and overall large in scale, thanks to a great story and a bevy of high-end special effects.  
All involved anticipate an impressive ROI and, the feat itself, accomplishing a film of this magnitude in our embryonic stage, will no doubt pay off in a very big way.  I’m very proud for the accomplishment thus far and thrilled with partners and friends, old and new, who made it all possible.  Looking forward, now that we’ve finally been able to take the steps necessary toward becoming a ‘real live boy! (er, fish), I’m confident that diligence in executing our growth strategy will lead to exponential growth and industry position.  That’s the last of the ‘CEO-speak’ but I say it from the heart, despite the board room lingo. 
Then there’s George R.R. Martin’s The Skin Trade.  Wow.  Not much more to say than that in regards to the year of well deserved success for the author (see his comments at http://grrm.livejournal.com/257374.html).   USA Today’s Author of the Year; Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People; New York Times Bestseller List, and 13 Emmy Nominations for HBO’s Game of Thrones.  
What does this have to do with Mike The Pike’s adaptation of GRRM’s World Fantasy Award winning werewolf masterpiece, The Skin Trade?  Directly, not much.  But you’ll remember, I optioned the rights to this well before HBO gave a greenlight to Game of Thrones— I did it because I truly loved the story, the characters and the rich universe surrounding what I consider to be the best werewolf fiction ever written.
  …and then comes Game of Thrones (by the way, you can toss my efforts to keep this short into a vat of hydrochloric acid)— and the mass appeal the show achieved in just one premiered episode, at which point HBO greenlit a second season and only a few months later, HBO co-Pres, Richard Plepler states boldly that Game of Thrones will go on for as long as George continues to write.   Now George is quickly becoming a brand and the industry has taken note— Syfy just picked up ‘Wild Cards’ and Season 2 of GoT takes flight with Dragons and all in April of this year.  
Meanwhile,  I am full force on development and packaging initiatives for ‘The Skin Trade’ to make it the howling success I know it can be.  Yeah, I just said that.  I did. I could backspace, but I’m leaving it.
Short version:  George is the man- and the powers that be are recognizing this.  The success overflow has helped our project achieve a shimmering exterior with which to present and package; then, attach a producing partner with financing capabilities (of which there are already contenders) for an all-out win-win watershed success.   
WTF is Spokefish?  Well, glad you asked— Spokefish is our Graphic Novel/Comics/Publishing division.  It was borne as a partnership between Mike the Pike Productions and Spoke Lane Entertainment.  This is something I don’t talk about as much as we could because getting through a graphic novel from start to finish is quite the process— much like a movie—but the process itself, the 'how does the watch work?', doesn’t interest those except the proud but few whose idea of online erotic satisfaction is a few hours clicking through DeviantArt.  But boy is the work impressive.  I love receiving new pages, seeing them penciled, then colored, coming to life, step by step, with each new stroke (are you hot yet?)  -
We’ve got three books in production— R.E.M., Bulderlyns and Chasing Rabbits— all from the auteur behind the critically acclaimed Harbor Moon.
If you like dragons, serial killers and paradoxical sleep patterns,  then you’ll love these books.  I cannot WAIT until we finish them. By ‘we’, I mean the artists.  I can hold my own with a good stick figure, and my Ant cartoons circa age 9 were a big hit with the family, but….
Well, Anyway—- Aside from being moderately profitable based on projections, the promise the books really hold (from a purely soul-less financial perspective) are as movie adaptations— be it in-house productions or film-rights partnerships and sales— these are are all solid prospects for screen. These are, for the long-term, the flagship three toward a long-list library we’re developing in-house for book sales and multi-platform storytelling.  Check out more here on our blog and also on our Graphic Novels page, which will be evolving quite a bit in the coming months.  
Our second round of GN’s will include one of my own screenplays, one of my very favorites:  ’Children of the Night’, a teen homage to Bram Stoker’s Dracula along with some other delectable treats that may just make you go blind if you look directly at them. Best to use peripheral vision with Spokefish fare- It’s just that good. 
Finally, (drumroll, please) the new acquisition. Currently under negotiation, which was announced about a week ago via Press Release.   This opportunity, which originated with my attendance at this year’s American Film Market, is one of the BEST Christmas, New Year’s and Birthday Presents I could have possibly received.  The best ever for Mike The Pike- who I think has had some pretty sh*tty christmas’ in the past (sorry, buddy).  
One of the worst was the blur that is 2003-2005, when our beloved ‘Fish in a Barrel’, only months away from pre-production, full-on packaged with Burt Reynolds and Chris Elliott, along with a host of newcomers and some nice pre-sales in place, was taken down by a fraudulent financier— who also took down two other larger projects that same year- with the promise to leverage a letter of credit we were generously bestowed by an Indiana bank and trust company.  
Thankfully this charlatan was taken down for Fraud before anyone got hurt too badly, but it was devastating to say the least.  All for a reason, and I couldn’t be happier that Fish in a Barrel will swim to see another day- this I can promise.
Greater thanks goes to all those who have come to know us and support us- including the best family an entrepreneur could ask for- An incredibly beautiful, considerate, “I-don’t-know-how-she-does-it” wife and mother, and our bundles of joy and tiger blood, Billy Bernard and Jacob James;  Parents that shaped me, encouraged me and taught us always to take the high road, and my amazing friends, all with some outstanding guidance, advice and perspective.  
You are most like those you surround yourself with and I’m happy to say my ‘circle’ has rounded out quite nicely for 2012, shedding the final bits of those we wanted to trust but ultimately could not, those we wanted to believe in, but let us down.  It’s put up or shut up from here on out— we’re right-on proper and I couldn’t be happier.  Special thanks to www.filmspecific.com and its founder, Stacey Parks. 
Nevertheless, some hard years building what is now Mike The Pike Productions.  Stay tuned for news on the new acquisition— All I can say, in a nutshell, since this post has probably worn-out its welcome for most, is ‘So far, so good’…
I’m confident we’ll have final terms negotiated this week, with Purchase and Sale effected a few days thereafter at which point Mike The Pike Productions will gain a wholly owned subsidiary which will provide immediate assets, cash-money earnings and long-term receivables with a consistent stream of low budget fare with an active, predictable buyer/sales scenario at hand.  
This brand will be completely separate from the Mike the Pike Productions brand, but, as a wholly owned subsidiary, MTP will enjoy all the fruits of its labor in terms of revenue accumulation on the books and cash-flow for operations, effecting what I feel will be an ultra-positive spin for MIKP in terms of demand vs. supply on the company’s stock.  
———
If you skipped over all that, skimming down for whatever catches your eye, you can go f*ck yourself, because I just spent all this time typing it.  Just kidding.  
I simply hope that everyone can take the time this year to focus on being a better person, no matter how good you may already feel, you can always be better and inspire those around you to do the same.  
This does have a lasting, residual effect and will make for great things you may not have felt possible.  People will surprise you— good and bad, but so long as you always focus on what is right, good things will come to you.  
Do the very best job it is you can at anything and everything you do.  Do more things you really love doing.  Find the time.  MAKE the time.  It’s there— we all have 24 hours.  Do something you’ve always wanted to this year.  But don’t forget the key—Make sure you do it with all your heart- and you will thrive.

LOS ANGELES—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Mike the Pike Productions, Inc. (Pink Sheets: MIKP), a production company with a focus in feature films and graphic novels, has secured funding for up to $3.75 million for its projects from a group of private investors, one of which to whom the company recently sold its ServeNation™ (SN) debit card program, including the SN business model, IP, banking relationships and nationwide client database.

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.

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.
