This is a brief update on the sale of our wholly owned subsidiary, ServeNation, Inc., a prepaid debit program founded by Mark B. Newbauer and Jasmine Raja after purchasing the program name, LLC and national customer lists from its original owner.  I am using an email from a shareholder which summarized other questions well, to answer.  Please feel free to call us or email with any questions until further public release on the subject. 
 Is ServeNation 100 percent owned by MIKP:  Currently, yes. 

or just a fraction as stated in your most recent PR about the sale of ServeNation to one of your lenders: The 27.5% that we will retain in equity ownership and revenue shares is what we agreed on as part of the conditions of the sale, as per the last press release. 

  Not sure I understand this ServeNation information. This will be clarified in a release once the deal is consummated in full— this is not something I wanted to give an effective date on as the public markets, and the work involved with being a public company can take a timeline from weeks to months as we’ve all witnessed, I’m sure.  That said—- We agreed to sell ServeNation for $350k to a committed JV Group.  Their intent is to take the company public, most likely a bulletin board company and with executives from Chicago that have a great deal of experience and success with large ventures.  I agreed, on behalf of the company, toward collective benefit, to allow for payment once the most suitable scenario for ServeNation was identified and prepared by the buyer.  Further, though we have agreed to sell, I will not let ServeNation go casually and terms have been built in to our agreement in which they must satisfy both cash payment along with an actionable plan for program deployment and success.  They have a great head start as, again, we already have established strong relationships with a major financial institution as well as a network for the card, which CURRENTLY includes one or more of the following:  Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Amex.  This has been previously announced, however the specific company has not as there was no reason, in my opinion, to do this until the program was closer to launch.  Announcement otherwise would have been premature in my opinion and feel that knowing we’re working with a major global network, would suffice.   
Per recent discussions, Jasmine Raja will remain on the Board as Director or continue to serve as CEO for ServeNation, Inc. with best collective interests on hand.  All announcements by the new company will be shared publicly with MIKP holders via press release as we will be holding a significant stake in the company with the 27.5%.

 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.

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.

'White Space' star, Holt McCallany, among the Updated List of Potential 'Riddick' Cast; Third Installment of David Twoy's popular 'Pitch Black' franchise

copy below from Bloody Disgusting—- Monday, November 28, 2011


By: MrDisgusting
While production picks back up in Montreal, Bloody Disgusting has been digging for the full cast of David Twohy’s Riddick, the third film in the trilogy that will star Vin Diesel and Karl Urban.

We have exclusively reported Oct. 31 that Andreas Apergis, Katee Sackhoff (White Noise 2: The Light, Growl, The Haunting in Georgia), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall, Devil) and WWE wrestler Dave Bautista (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption) have all been given offers. Add Matthew Nable (K-11, Killer Elite) to the list as “Boss Johns”. Apergis would play “Krone”, commander of the dark theocracy. Sackhoff would pay “Dahl”, a Nordic merc tracking Riddick.

We’ve also learned that there’s strong interest in both Cliff Curtis (Live Free or Die Hard , The Fountain, Training Day) and Holt McCallany (Alien 3, Fight Club) as “Santana” and “Vargas”, respectively.

Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.

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?
