The Studio

A blend between a creator space and a think-tank where activists, organizations and creators join forces to share & spread ideas to better humanity.

It is our core belief that we have a shared responsibility to use our creativity as a force for good in this world.

Whether it’s short form communication on the climate crisis, feature length documentaries about reproductive health or interactive Holocaust survivor testimony, our team works to produce the most impactful work for the world’s most pressing stories.

We conceptualize, develop, film, animate, capture & post produce for one overarching purpose: delivering measurable impact.

Whether it’s a shift in public perception, a cross- media communications strategy or even policy adoption … the work doesn’t end when the content is finished.

From grassroots organizations on the front line of the world’s biggest crises, to the decisions making spaces at the COP or UNGA, the MAD team doesn’t just craft communication, we implement a creative strategy across various levels of policy making and civil society. We are in the rooms, at the tables, on the panels, giving space to voices of affected communities, putting pressure on policy makers responsible for an increasingly uncertain future.

A MAD Production was founded by Ellen Andries and Thomas Maddens in 2013 and works with an ever-expanding network of trusted organizations, creatives, activists and advocates in all corners of the globe, putting together the team to each project’s specific requirements and expertise.
