Mark Heidelberger

Co-Chairman/CEO


Mark started Treasure Entertainment, where he serves as Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, with partner Jesse Felsot in 2000. He has produced music videos for clients such as Sony BMG/Latino, Atlantic Records, and Jerry Heller (former President of Eazy E’s Ruthless Records). He has also produced commercials for a range of companies including Reebok, Cox Media and Sam Adams.

In 2001, Mark executive produced the independent feature Cycles (2001). More recently, premiering in 2007 to their highest ever June ratings, he developed and co-executive produced the You’ve Got A Friend for The Hallmark Channel. Shortly thereafter, Mark produced and served as production manager on the indie comedy feature Man Overboard, which is currently airing on cable television in the U.S. and HBO in Europe.

He produced the NBA docu-drama Flintown Kids (2005), featuring Jason Richardson and LeBron James, and developed and helped package the indie thriller Don Mckay, starring Thomas Haden Church (Sideways), Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas). Through Treasure Entertainment, he also produced the documentary The Making of Harsh Times which takes a look at the work that went into making the gritty urban film Harsh Times starring Christian Bale and directed and written by David Ayer (Fast and the Furious, Training Day). The documentary was released on the film’s DVD by the Weinstein Company.

Mark is currently producing a feature length documentary Who Stole The Soul?, which centers on the rise and fall of the R&B movement amid the proliferation of gangsta rap. He is also prepping Treasure Entertainment’s next feature, the vampire-Western High Midnight, with Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary 1 & 2, Urban Legends 3) directing, and Billy Baldwin (Backdraft), Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Elizabeth Hurley (Austin Powers) and Thomas Kretschmann (Wanted) starring.

Other films in development include horror anthology The Gathering, starring Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm St.), Doug Bradley (Hellraiser), David Naughton (An American Werewolf in London) and Brian O’Halloran (Clerks) for director Jon Keeyes (Fall Down Dead, Living & Dying); teen comedy Prom Date for Oliver Robins (Dumped, Wild Roomies) to direct; and Latino action/drama Los Coyotes for Dave Rodriguez (Push, Switchback) to direct.

Before starting Treasure Entertainment, Mark held positions at Outlaw Productions (Training Day, The Santa Clause I & II), Film Roman (The Simpsons, My First Mister), 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.
