choose your individual production services with our

custom music video builder 

Customize your music video project by adding dancers, actors, specialists, props,
set pieces, and costumes to our initial producer & camera team.
Our prices are per day. One Madwoman production day is 6-8 hours long.
You'll notice that our prices are 20-30% less than other production companies - this is because most other companies do 10-12 hour long days, which is extremely hard on a team. By having shorter days, we're able to offer healthy work hours to our team members, and cheaper rates to our clients for the exact same (or even more inspired and more energized) end product.
