MadRiver Pictures is a leading production, finance, and international sales company founded by industry veteran Marc Butan. Since the company’s launch in 2015, the experienced team at MadRiver Pictures has leveraged its relationships, creative vision, and distribution and finance expertise to establish MadRiver as a top destination for filmmakers and talent. With a distinctive ability to develop, finance, and produce, MadRiver works in both the independent and studio spaces, supporting director-driven projects across the specialty and commercial markets. In 2019, MadRiver entered the television development and production space as well, with projects at multiple networks.
In acquiring Adaptive Studios in 2019, MadRiver broadened its slate to include a wealth of film, television, and publishing titles. MadRiver’s deep library uniquely positions the company to adapt to industry changes and produce a wide-variety of compelling stories for theatrical, television, and digital releases.
