Cutting his teeth in late night talk radio and news reporting then transitioning to first amendment and intellectual property law, Mark Vega has worked as a strategic deal maker with 20 years of experience as a team builder, leader and advocate in the media, entertainment and marketing industries.
Mark is an entrepreneur with deep experience in business model refinement, financial management, staff oversight, and operations streamlining. He is called on to create process improvements across an organization's business units cutting costs and increasing revenues; crafting split rights and revenue sharing models in the transmedia universe; designing compensation structures touching on both IP ownership and revenue sharing; structuring alternative content distributions systems and is an expert in all business aspects of motion picture finance, production and distribution.
Incite Law Group houses all of Mark's legal clients. His past and present transactional IP and entertainment law clients include legendary producer Robert Evans (The Godfather I and II, Rosemary's Baby, Kid Stays In The Picture), action sports director Dana Brown (Step Into Liquid, Dust to Glory), surfer/iconoclast Laird Hamilton and entertainment brands such as National Lampoon and Classic Media (Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Veggie Tales) and dozens of independent filmmakers. During the first round of dot.com phenomena, Mark crafted groundbreaking templated, revenue-generating business models for Hypnotic.com (the first "Million Dollar Film Festival") and real estate giant Homestore.com.
Triple Cap Worldwide houses Mark's non-law clients and projects. Through Triple Cap Mark has been the Executive Producer of a number of projects including El Pelado de la Noche, a Spanish language prime-time talk/sketch comedy program created and hosted by Sergio Bruna, the just released Diego Sebastian Shredded Abs App and Give Me The Banjo, the first documentary film to surface from the decade long archival effort called The Banjo Project by Emerson College professor Marc Fields.
Previously, Mark co-founded MoPix, a global turn-key movie distribution platform that enables anyone with content to release their own film app through Apple and other tablet and mobile devices. Filmmakers curate a “Digital DVD” that includes the film, unlimited trailers, photos, behind-the-scenes extras, fan incentives and other bonus content available for sale in the download to own market.
Mark also co-founded Omelet, the country's first 2.0 ad agency that pursued a 50/50 business model with ½ of the company's efforts focusing on work-for-hire advertising and marketing and ½ the development and exploitation of intellectual property owned or controlled by the agency often in conjunction with its brand clients. Omelet's unique structure mashed the traditional agency-works-for-client universe with film & tv IP ownership scenarios and in the process secured ad industry-first engagements with Anheuser-Busch, Microsoft, ABC-Disney, Heineken, Fox Mobile, Easton-Bell Sports, BioWare-Pandemic and others who previously refused to relinquish control of intellectual property rights.
Mark believes Banjo's are the missing music link, Asteroids remains the best arcade video game of all time, reptiles are under-appreciated and his kids are better than yours.
