Julia Mercer & Alec Valadez 4 ever




1. a polite term of address to a woman or man, so as not to assume one's gender: Smadam President; May I help you, smadam?

2. the woman or man in charge of a household: Is the smadam at home?

3. the woman or man in charge of a house of prostitution: You run a good house of prostitution, smadam!

Smadam Productions is a creative duo consisting of two smadams: Julia Mercer and Alec Valadez. Julia and Alec met at UW-Madison (Go Badgers!) and realized they had two things in common: They love each other and they both coincidentally want to pursue creative careers. These days, they live in Chicago, the windiest city in all of the U.S.A. Whether it's recording a podcast that's a parody of "This American Life" or shooting a short film that takes place in the vampire-zombie apocalypse, Smadam Productions is always gearing up to find a way to bring stories to life, whether for the screen or for the earbuds.
