Meet Maddison Bullock of Maddness Pictures in Sherman Oaks

Today we’d like to introduce you to Maddison Bullock.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started off acting in shorts, student films, and other small projects. After some time I realized that one of the best ways to ensure that the content of your dreams is available and that you are able to participate in its beauty is to create it yourself! Maddness Pictures LLC and Ice The Movie were born out of the incredible environment of DIY that so beautifully defines the filmmaking landscape of this generation.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Growing up as a competitive athlete I learned from a young age that nothing worthwhile comes without hard work, sacrifice, and lots and lots of mistakes! While the playground of creating your own content is exciting, shiny, and seemingly limitless, the unknown nature of the arena can be daunting and dangerous if you are not surrounded by the right support team.

Learning to invest deeply in honest, like-minded allies is one of the greatest lessons I have learned.

Please tell us about Maddness Pictures LLC.
Like so many kids growing up, I was always inspired by the magical nature of the movies. The escapist aspects of investing emotionally, mentally, and beyond with characters crafted from the mind, projected onto the screen, and sometimes being chased by dinosaurs was utterly enchanting.

I feel that there is an almost intrinsic heroism to the arts. The beautiful simplicity of my cause is really just that I founded Maddness Pictures as a platform to produce and deliver GOOD movies. Not movies that have hidden agendas, or corrupt Hollywood politics, but movies that communicate with that five-year-old in you that just wants to run around and play pirates.

Good movies that make you think, laugh, love, cry, and as is the case with our first picture, Ice The Movie, go for gold!

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Nope! One of my biggest idols is John Wooden. When I catch myself beating myself up for past mistakes I always go back to his quote.

“If you’re not making mistakes you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.”
