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.

We have a shared responsibility to use our creativity as a force for good in this world. Whether it’s short form communication about the climate crisis, feature length documentaries about reproductive health or interactive Holocaust survivor testimony, our passion-driven team works to produce the most impactful work for the world’s most pressing stories.

But we don’t just tell the stories. We measure the impact they deliver: whether it’s a shift in public perception, a cross-platform media communications strategy or advising on local and intl. policy. 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 conferences like the COP or UNGA, the MAD team doesn’t just craft communication, we implement strategy across all 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.
