I have known and closely worked with Mark for over fifteen years. Mark is a very goal oriented individual.

He is a strong and passionate producer, extremely knowledgeable and detailed in budgeting, physical production and post production. You get soup to nuts with Mark. He is one of the good guys, an honest team player. Any production would excel with him as a producer.

Nogen Beck -- Photographer
I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Mark Heidelberger on several Treasure Entertainment projects. As a director of photography, it's refreshing to work with a producer who so artfully walks the line between quality and affordability. Mark is a master of squeezing as much bang for his client's buck as possible, thereby pleasing the people he works with on BOTH ends, all while maintaining the integrity of the pieces he takes on. Mark is a package deal; he is a diligent worker, a thinker, and a communicator, and I would be the first to recommend him.
Jonathan Hoffberg -- Former VP of Business Dev., Treasure Entertainment
Mark is a very capable, natural leader who displays a tremendous amount of initiative, drive and follow through. He is an inspiration to his whole team, and his passion for film-making, development and production makes him a formidable force in all of these arenas. He is a creative himself, and loves the creative process - because of this, he is a natural partner to writers, directors, and designers of all stripes. Mark's work ethic is intense, and he expects his colleagues, clients, vendors and partners to match that intensity. He is detail-oriented to a fault, but never loses sight of the big picture. At the end of the day, if you are looking for someone to see a film or video project through to completion while maintaining the highest quality standard possible, Mark is your man.
Tracy Balsz -- Entertainment Marketing Expert, IndieMarketing
Mark was brilliant in his design of Treasure Entertainment's distribution services model for independent films. In this day and age of an ever-changing distribution landscape, having control over one's project is key. Treasure partnered with filmmakers on the distribution strategy of their project, allowing complete control over marketing costs and transparency in the accounting reporting. Unheard of and certainly a model that I recommend to all of my filmmaker clientele.
Brooke Baumer -- Actress
Mark hired me to play one of the leads in a hilarious film entitled "Man Overboard." He was such a fantastic producer, taking every necessary step to ensure the production was top-notch. He was a pleasure to work with. Everyone should be so lucky!

Kevin Asbell, Esq. -- General Counsel & COO, Lucas Oil/Mav TV
Mark is a high-powered film producer that I have had the pleasure to know for the last 16 years. What I find most striking about Mark is his ability to understand and master the complexities that stem from the creation, production and marketing of his projects. Mark's ability to express himself creatively in a manner that brings a simple idea to fruition is complimented by his ability to explore unconventional solutions to problems that plague inexperienced film producers. Mark is a self-starter and is highly motivated. Rather than passively acquiring knowledge, Mark is a participant in life. He thinks and he has perspective. Mark is organized, meticulous and efficient. His tenacious work ethic was reflected in the classroom as a graduate film student many years ago and on and off the set while working various positions for numerous film projects. In my interaction with Mark, I have observed his natural leadership ability. Likewise, Mark's ability to listen, articulate and communicate, combined with his dynamic personality and energy, exemplify the characteristics of a great filmmaker.
Julien P. Bourgon -- President, TDP Films

He's skilled at guiding the creative vision of a project and maximizing production value while simultaneously maintaining con-trol of the dollars and cents. If you have the chance to work with him, I would highly recommend it.
Les Brandt -- Actor
I worked with Mr. Heidelberger on a film a few years ago and during the course of the rough 3 to 4 weeks we had to table read, rehearse and shoot, I realized first hand that Mark was a very professional person. And once on location, this producer made the long working hours and days a lot of fun and added a tremendous amount of creative flow to the process. It was a wonderful experience working with Mark and his team at Big Boss.
James Ridgley -- Production Sound Mixer
Having worked on more than just a few film projects with Mark, I can say that he is knowledgeable, competent, and a force to reckon with - in the nicest of ways.

JC Christofilis -- Owner, Creative Director at DILEMMA
I have known Mark professionally and personally for nearly 20 years (since we both attended UCLA's Producers Program together). Our professional relationship was cemented when Mark served as producer on my horror series Chopper, and we have since worked on numerous film and video projects over the years. Mark has proven himself to be a rare talent with deep integrity and a genuine passion for the craft that dictates every great film.

He has the experience and drive to make sure all the details are accounted for and that the project will finish on time, on budget, and as smoothly as possible.
Michael Sundberg -- Writer, Director
Mark is an experienced professional and a pleasure to work with. He produced my short film in Los Angeles, titled “Jacob’s Recall,” which became fairly complex logistically due to the budget, schedule and permitting constraints. The production could not have gone more smoothly thanks to Mark’s detailed planning and preparation and his pool of talented crew members. I highly recommend Mark as a film producer and look forward to completing more projects with him and his team.
Tony Ware -- Owner, Picture Perfect Film Locations
Pleasure to work with!!
Julia C. Phillips -- Screenwriter, Novelist
Mark is great to work with. Not only is he knowledgeable about all aspects of budgeting, but he willingly shares his expertise and experience. The whole process was much clearer afterward, and I was able to use it to make more considerations for my next script.
William Lu -- Writer, Director
Mark helped me navigate the treacherous waters of a first time feature filmmaker; initially coming aboard to do a budget breakdown of my script, then eventually as full-fledged producer. We went to a bunch of festivals, won several awards and got a distribution deal. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and collaboration. Hope to do many more projects with Mark in the future.
Alexander Peter Lercher -- Producer, Director
I used to work for Mark as a production assistant many years ago; since then he has become a great friend and trusted mentor. Mark has given me many insights and pointers on both of my feature films in regards to the pre-production, production, post-production and distribution phases. I also had the chance to work with Mark again directly when he represented my German-language debut feature film that had secured distribution in German-speaking territories (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), but not in rest-of-world territories. Mark secured a distribution deal in LA and guided the process. He was very accurate and detailed in giving me distribution contract feedback to find the best solution. He assisted in final delivery (content) issues and always had my best interests in mind. He also advised on my payment and royalty collection set up. Mark is an honest, straight-forward, competent, trustworthy and loyal person.
Shequeta Smith -- President of Shero Comics, Director, Writer
I've worked with Mark for almost ten years on budgets for several of my independent films and projects. Most recently he helped me tremendously with an upcoming international documentary I'm working on. He really knows his stuff as a line producer and as a storyteller and I trust his knowledge. I've recommended him to multiple filmmaking colleagues who have all had an awesome experience with him as well. I highly recommend Mark and look forward to us working together again really soon.
Luca Bello -- Freelance Writer
Mark is a team player with a great sense of humor and knowledge of the industry. I have complete faith in his skills as a producer and in his dedication to quality. A great guy to have around.

Timothy Talbott -- Producer, Filmmaking Coach
I had the opportunity to meet and work with Mark one time. That is all it took for me to want to work with him for the rest of my career. I have had him do a few of my line budgets; they are spot on. He is the man to work with. He understand the pain points on any production and understands what is needed to complete the production. You will not be disappointed when you work with Mark.
Michael Shlain -- Director, Co-Founder of Butcher Bird Studios
I had the good fortune and pleasure of working with Mark on a commercial that I recently directed. He is a first-class producer with superb communication, follow-through and an attention to detail that made me feel at all times secure that the production was in good hands. The true test of a producer is not just in solid planning, but adapting and making sometimes tough decisions when things invariably deviate from that plan. In both respects, Mark availed himself with flying colors and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a rock-solid collaborator for their next filmmaking journey.
Athena -- Novelist, Screenwriter
Mark is a fantastic talent developer and an ongoing production resource. He speaks fluent story and script development! It’s been a privilege to work with such an ethical, build-minded developer who values the creative collaboration process. Mark is organized, dependable, current, and exceptionally trustworthy. I hope there are many more collaborations to come, as I know my projects are in expert hands with him.
Chris DuBrock -- Composer
I worked as the score composer on a film that Mark Heidelberger produced. Mark was extremely organized and attentive to all of the details of the project, and was able to present and discuss both business and creative aspects with crystal clarity. He was also amiable and created a relaxed atmosphere that brought out the best from the creatives while still nailing the deadlines and timelines.
