Founder and CEO
Andy Streitfeld is the founder of AMS Pictures, a Dallas-based video and film production company. An avid filmmaker, techno-geek and natural entrepreneur since childhood, Andy earned a Bachelor’s degree in broadcast and film from New York University, paying for his college years by running an inner city television studio teaching kids how to produce community programming. In 1982, with a loan from his 88-year-old grandmother, Andy founded AMS Productions in the spare bedroom of his small home in Bedford, Texas. Today, the company has more than 65 full-time employees, with facilities and staff in both Dallas and Austin, Texas.
AMS has become a magnet for creative talent and a reliable partner for some of America’s most well known brands. While building a successful business serving the corporate and broadcast marketplace, under Andy’s leadership AMS has always had a passion for creating communication products that make a real difference in the lives of people, families and communities. This commitment to creating meaningful programming led Andy to apply 28 years of experience in creative media and visual storytelling to create original programs that inspire, provoke and entertain.
The body of work produced under the rubric of AMS Pictures includes Black History Uncovered, a series of documentaries on African America history as well as other titles on social issues, history, and culture. Andy’s dream is that documentaries become as popular as American Idol!
