MARK HEIDELBERGER, PGA
Mark started Beverly Hills-based Treasure Entertainment with partner Jesse Felsot in 2000, where he produced music videos and commercials while also managing writers and directors. Early in his career, he helped develop and package the twist-filled thriller Don McKay, starring Thomas Haden Church, Elisabeth Shue and Melissa Leo, and co-produced the gritty 2005 urban thriller Harsh Times by director and screenwriter David Ayer, which starred Christian Bale.
Mark subsequently developed and co-executive produced the family-friendly made-for-television movie You’ve Got A Friend for The Hallmark Channel, premiering in 2007 to their highest ever June ratings. Shortly thereafter, Mark produced the independent comedy feature Man Overboard and the horror web series Chopper (based on the popular comic book).
In 2012, Mark produced the romantic comedy feature It’s Not You, It’s Me, starring Vivica Fox. The following year, he produced the supernatural martial arts film Ninja Apocalypse, which premiered at San Diego’s Comic-Con. Mark then transitioned to more dramatic fare, serving as lead producer of the Chinese-American romance film Comfort, which premiered in competition at Cinequest, and as associate producer on the Southern noir thriller Mississippi Murder, starring Malcolm McDowell.
In the spring of 2015, he produced a holiday film called A New York Christmas, released by Gravitas, and quickly followed that up as co-producer on Pray for Rain from ESX Productions and Lucas Oil, which starred Jane Seymour. In 2016, Mark produced horror movie The Basement, starring Mischa Barton.
Over the last several years, Mark served as a producer on a wide variety of projects, including Chinese new media series The Offer, documentary feature Somewhere in the Middle, heist thriller Take the Night and The Montgomery Murders TV pilot. Most recently, he produced dramatic thriller Last Night on Earth, which starred Shane West and Dee Wallace, and is set for release in 2024.
Before founding Treasure Entertainment, Mark held positions at Outlaw Productions, Film Roman and literary agency Ken Sherman & Associates. He graduated number one in his class with a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies from UC Santa Barbara and earned a Master of Fine Arts in Motion Picture and Television Producing from the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.
