Mark B. Newbauer graduated from the renowned film and producer’s track at Columbia College Chicago as well as The Second City Chicago Training Center where he was a writer, director and performer. His debut short,¬†Dreamkiller, is an ambitious take on Sirhan Sirhan and the events leading up to the RFK assassination, winner of “Best of the Fest” at the 1999 New York International Independent Film and Video Festival. Newbauer also worked in the Talent and Literary departments at The Gage Group, an agency with offices in New York and Los Angeles.

After more than a decade in the entertainment industry, Newbauer took his passion for both the art of filmmaking and the business sense necessary for a thriving brand, and launched Mike The Pike Productions (www.mtpprods.com), a full-spectrum entertainment firm with a focus in Feature Films and Graphic Novel Entertainment.

Recently, Newbauer optioned the film rights to the World Fantasy Award winning¬†werewolf thriller, George R.R. Martin’s The Skin Trade; and in 2011, he produced White Space, an effects driven sci-fi thriller starring Holt McCallany and Zulay Henao. In early 2012, Mike The Pike Productions acquired Saint James Films as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Saint James Films specializes in low-budget, entertaining genre films for the global marketplace.
