Hollywood's Comeback Kid: http://www1.cbn.com/700club/mark-koch-hollywoods-comeback-kid

Mark Koch was born in Detroit Michigan, and is a graduate of Northwood University. In 1992 he founded Prelude Pictures and quickly found a home at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood, CA. Koch's first film titled, Judicial Consent, was a HBO world premier and set the HBO February ratings record.

Koch soon became a powerful force in Hollywood with two major box office hits. 'Lost in Space', the $90 million big-budget blockbuster that knocked Titanic from the number one spot while setting a box office record for the highest April opening of a motion picture ever. Three weeks later, 'Black Dog', an action adventure film that teamed Patrick Swayze with country music legend Randy Travis and Rock and Roll heavy weight Meat Loaf debuted. Prelude Pictures enjoyed two major motion pictures in the top ten of both box-office and home video revenue at the same time and remained on the top ten charts for four consecutive weeks.

In 2003, Mark accepted the challenge from Mel Gibson and his Icon Productions to assist in the promotion and marketing of 'The Passion of the Christ'. Prelude partnered with several charitable, non-profit and faith based organizations to build a coalition of more than 50 groups that marketed and sold advance tickets as well as merchandise for 'The Passion of the Christ'. Under the direction of Koch these strategic partnerships garnered the support of millions of moviegoers and helped propel 'The Passion of the Christ' to a record­breaking opening.

In April 2006, Mark headed back to Hollywood and in only six short months, 'The Perfect Game' went into production. The true story of the 1957 Little League World Series and the rag tag barefoot team from Monterrey, Mexico. With an all-star cast that includes Oscar winners Lou Gossett, Jr and Francis Fisher as well as Clifton Collins, Cheech Marin, Bruce McGill, David Koechner and Jake T. Austin, this critically acclaimed film was released nationally in 2011 and became an instant classic which can be seen today regularly on HBO, Showtime and Netflix.

Koch is also founder of Prelude Motorsports and through that company managed his son Blake Koch's NASCAR Nationwide / Sprint Cup career. Koch took another break from the film business and focused the past eight years on his son's career.

Koch has now turned the management over and is back full time promoting and distributing his book "The First Hour" for men through his newly formed company Prelude Publishing and continues to develop Message Driven films to produce in the future through Prelude Pictures.
