Mark E. Mathis is a movie producer and media consultant. He is the president of Mathis Media, LLC, a media-consulting firm.


Mathis founded and served as executive director of Citizens' Alliance for Responsible Energy. The website describes him as "a former TV news reporter and anchor turned media consultant and trainer. In 2002 Mathis published Feeding the Media Beast: An Easy Recipe for Great Publicity. The book is published in the U.S., China, Russia and India. He was a mid-day radio host on 106.3 KAGM. In March 2006 Mathis was a co-signatory on a letter, initiated by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, in support of an expansion of oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. [1]

He is the associate producer for Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, a pro-intelligent design movie. Mathis has been criticized for allegedly misleading evolutionary biologists PZ Myers and Richard Dawkins to get them to appear in the film.[2] In March 2008 Mathis prohibited Myers from viewing the movie, even though he appears in it.[3] In April 2008 XVIVO, an animation company, notified the producers that the company would sue for copying a film,[4] but the company eventually dropped its lawsuit after agreeing that no copyright infringement had occurred.
