We are a production company dedicated to developing strong stories and captivating characters for children’s television.
Our mission is simple: create exceptional animation!
Sure, it’s ambitious. And definitely easier said than done. But it’s also exciting! This is our passion. There is nothing else we’d rather be doing. And we are willing to put ourselves out there in order to do it right and to do it EXCEPTIONALLY well.
So, there’ s really nothing left for us to do except get started!! If you are looking for fresh ideas, an awesome production partner, or both – look no further. We’re right here!
Daily Madness Productions.
Daily Madness Productions creates animated TV Shows for the 6-10 audience. Kids this age are actually rather sophisticated
television viewers. If we want to earn their loyalty and really capture the imagination of this age group, we know
we have to bring it!
Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Think Avatar the Last AirBender.
Think The Hunger Games.
These are big names and big budget productions, but let’s be honest,
what’s the point in thinking anything other than big if you want to win
over the older kid market?
We produce our animated television shows in a variety of styles for all
genres. Whether it’s fast-paced, laugh-a-minute slapstick comedy or high-stakes
action and adventure – Daily Madness is all about entertainment.
Daily Madness is a company founded by a woman and run by
women so, perhaps not surprisingly, we are particularly passionate
about producing shows with strong female characters.
She could be the hero, the baddie, the comic relief, the mentor – or all
of the above! The only thing our female characters will never be is ‘token’.
A Little Daily Madness
‘a little daily madness’ is the pre-school arm of Daily Madness Productions, generating content for kids aged 2-5. Through bright, vibrant, cute and engaging characters, we are creating funny stories that have a purpose.
We want to help start kids off right with their first introduction to media.
There is Method to the Madness…
With goals set, and our vision ambitious, this is how we approach our productions.
Choosing the Right Project:
We select ideas that tell a story, first and foremost. Stories with clear goals and rewarding endings. Finding characters that have motivation, dimension, that kids want to watch.
We source and nurture talent. We hire ambitious people with passion and motivation, then create an environment for them to thrive in.
Pipelines that encourage creativity:
We are specialists in budgets and schedule design. We know how to run an efficient and cost effective production. From years of experience, we have learned first-hand how to devise a solid, workable pipeline that allows time for creativity. We’re not just talking about the expected creativity of discussing ideas and reviewing work – we mean allowing space for the mistakes, the wrong turns, the bad days where nothing seems to work. The good and the bad both contribute to the creative process… we recognise this and embrace it.
Invest in Technology:
IT, computers, software development… there are an amazing amount of resources out there that help to create top-of-the-line visuals, but also streamline the behind the scenes production process. Animation co-exists very happily with technology and we are bringing coders into the fold from a very early stage.
Research and Testing:
How else can we know if we are on point? Incorporating stages through development and early production for a third party to test our products with our target audiences to see how they respond.
Lindsey Adams has known since she was a little girl that she wanted to work in animation and she has pretty much been on a mission ever since. After earning an Honors Degree in Computer Animation from the University of Teeside, Lindsey moved to Edinburgh to get started in her dream career. She started out as Assistant to the Executive Producer at DC Thompson before moving to Red Kite Animation. Starting out as a Production Coordinator, Lindsey soon became Production Manager on the BAFTA-nominated Dennis the Menace and Gnasher and the International Emmy-nominated Ask Lara.
Lindsey relocated to Dublin, Ireland in 2013 to assume the role of Production Manager on Boj and then Wildernuts Series 2 for Kavaleer Productions. While at Kavaleer she moved into a Producer role, serving as both a Series Producer (Kiva Can Do!) and Pilot Producer (Buddyboom). She has also produced several projects for Axis Animation in Glasgow, Scotland. And now, Lindsey is really going for the dream and has started Daily Madness – her very own animation production company! To say she’s excited would be quite the understatement.
Lindsey watches an inordinate amount of television, is a big fan of Scottish whisky and thinks there are very few things in this life that compare to a properly formatted excel spreadsheet.
Shannon George didn’t seek a career in animation – it just kind of happened (lucky for her!). After arriving bright-eyed and brimming with enthusiasm in Los Angeles, the first industry job she landed was with Gracie Films where, among other things, Shannon worked on a little up-and-coming series called The Simpsons. She eventually landed at Nickelodeon and worked on several live action and animated projects for the network. But it wasn’t until she received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Pre-School Children’s series as a Producer on Nickelodeon’s Blue’s Clues that it dawned on her that she might be kind of good at this animation thing.
Shannon has lived in Dublin, Ireland for nearly four years, starting out at Kavaleer Productions as a Series Producer (Wildernuts Series One, Boj, Deadly) and Head Writer/Story Editor (Wildernuts Series Two, Kiva Can Do!). Shannon has spent the past two years working as a Development Consultant for Brown Bag Films, as well as Supervising Producer for projects at Giant Animation and On The Edge Productions. She has also served as Show Runner and Consulting Producer for projects at Amazon Studios.
Shannon is a musical theatre geek, a sci-fi fan girl and a coffee snob.
