Mike The Pike Productions (OTC: MIKP) is an entertainment company with a
focus in feature films, graphic novels and media holdings, including
genre house, Saint James Films (SJF). Today, Saint James Films proudly
announces that with the help of its strategic partner, TomCat Films,
LLC, it has acquired Dudez Productions' Cult Classic in the making,
'Jurassic Shark' (http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/news/take-a-look-at-the-hilarious-trailer-for-brett-kellys-jurassic-shark)
This marks the company's second acquisition in the last month, with more
on the way. "As mentioned in our last press release and in our company
more movies mean more revenues," states SJF Chairman, Mark B. Newbauer,
who also serves as CEO for Mike The Pike Productions. "Between in-house
productions and acquisitions, 'Jurassic Shark' now marks the fifth film
this year as a new asset to the Saint James brand. This is exactly why
we acquired Saint James. It's a systematic approach to building
long-term growth and shareholder value in MIKP.
Directed by Brett Kelly (My Fair Zombie, Kingdom of the Vampire),
Jurassic Shark is all the campy goodness you'd expect from its title:
When an oil company has unwittingly unleashed a prehistoric shark from
its icy prison, the jurassic killer maroons a group of art thieves and a
group of beautiful young college students on an abandoned piece of land.
The film will be released in the US (aka Attack of the Jurassic
Shark) by Phase 4 Films (http://www.phase4films.com)
and internationally by www.tomcatfilmsllc.com
"I'm very pleased with the progress we're making in our first year,"
states Saint James COO, Ted Chalmers. "With more productions and
acquisitions underway for 2012 and sales/distribution in place on all
films, Saint James Films is ahead of schedule on this front and,
inevitably, will hit a point in the near future when receivables turn
into a consistent stream of revenues to help take the company to the
next level, all the while supporting its parent, Mike The Pike
Productions on more ambitious endeavors toward becoming a contending
mini-major and possibly a primed acquisition target by a larger studio
e.g. Lions Gate or Time Warner."
Saint James Films will have several properties available for buyers
worldwide at this year's AFM in Santa Monica (http://www.americanfilmmarket.com),
including Blood Rites, Lizzie Borden's Revenge, Captain Battle: Legacy
War and more! AFM expects to host over 1500 buyers from 70+ countries
with billions of dollars in buying power.
Mike The Pike Productions will also attend AFM with a handful of
premiere properties on its production slate at AFM toward identifying
premier sales agency and distribution partners for the best possible
packaging and sales.
