Pacific World Pictures is an independent motion picture production company founded by indie filmmaker Mark W. Curran, in association with creative and business entertainment industry professionals with a common goal of producing profitable motion pictures. Each movie produced by Pacific World Pictures using investor equity forms a separate legal business entity solely for the purpose of administrating that single film. In this case, the independent film “Sharkosaur” is administrated under the legal entity 'Movie Investors, LLC.' but is produced by and branded to the public as 'Pacific World Pictures Presents'.


The strategy of making films in well-established genres has been proven time and again to be a smart and sound choice for production. More than half of Oscar-winning Best Pictures over the last 30 years have been independent films. The recent success of independent films, such as Parasite, Green Book, The Shape of Water, Moonlight, Spotlight, Birdman, The Hunger Games, The Help, The King's Speech, The Kids Are All Right, The Hurt Locker, Slumdog Millionaire, and others, has ensured the independent segment will continue its upward trend. This is why we believe our company is well positioned for growth in the coming decade. 

“Unlike all the other art forms, film is able to seize and render the passage of time, to stop it, almost to possess it in infinity. I’d say that film is the sculpting of time.”

– Andrei Tarkovsky
