It all starts with the story…

There is something truly magical about storytelling that has been with us since humans first populated the planet.

Written form dates back tens of thousands of years ago, with works like Aesop’s Fables and The Epic of Gilgamesh, carved on stone pillars; and works of literature have been adapted for film since the dawn of the industry, like the work of Georges Méliès in 1899, who released two adaptations of established IP —Cinderella, based on the Brothers Grimm and King John, the first known film to be based on the works of Shakespeare.

Today, IP is in higher demand than ever before with streamers and studios willing to pay top dollar for compelling storytelling, source material, & other IP on which to base content with built-in audience potential.

A fan-held company helps ensure we bring audiences around the world the kind of content that truly resonates with our human experience no matter who we are, or where we are from: transcendent storytelling across a wide range of genres, brought to life in ways like never before!

Arowana Media Holdings is an entertainment company with a passion for timeless and transcendent storytelling across film, television, digital media, and other entertainment mediums.

We do this in our flagship subsidiary, Mike the Pike Entertainment, where we secure rights to undervalued and/or legacy IP and develop, package and produce these materials for feature film, television series and more, in partnership with studios and production companies.
