About Us


Learn more about our Dallas, TX film studio.

IdeaMan Studios

Founded in 2003, Ideaman Studios houses creative companies and individuals with a common passion: making great content. After re-locating to the heart of the Design District in 2008, we expanded our facility to include two 42’x42’ studios and production offices. Currently we  house several tenants, create content for multiple platforms, and rent our facilities and equipment for a wide range of production needs.

Our talented tenants include Buffalo Casting, KdB Entertainment, Loud Pic, PostMan Productions, Score Vault and Wingspan Creative. From accomplished writers, directors, and casting agencies, to skilled drone operators, composers, and editors, all of us at IdeaMan are practically family.  A long with all our hard work, we’ve been host to awesome parties, events, industry mixers and weddings.

Some cool projects have made their way through our door in the last decade, Upstream Color and A Ghost Story, to name two.  At IdeaMan Studios we provide the same professionalism and care to every one of the hundreds of commercial, industrial projects, and independent films we have been a part of.

Under our roof, besides our green and white studios, you will not only find the latest film making toys, but also people with over one and a half centuries of experience and the skills you need. No matter the size, IdeaMan Studios can be the creative home for your next projects.

David Maddox (Writer/Director/Owner)

David Maddox made his first film when he was 12 years old.  Lucky enough to turn his passion into a career, David had to help others, and founded IdeaMan Studios.  More than a studio, IdeaMan has become a community of like-minded professionals whose skills enable quality productions.

Besides being a producer, David is a screenwriter, director, and a true fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. His favorite things to shoot are action and comedy, but he loves pointing a camera at just about anything.

His credits include multiple short films, web series and commercials. His latest projects cover a broad spectrum: national sports commercials for the Big 12 and AdvoCare’s performance supplements, a campaign for the HCA hospital system, and the award-winning short Alternative Math.  He even produced the Sundance hit A Ghost Story.  In the course of all this, David has worked with A-list talent including Drew Brees, Richard “The King” Petty, Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Mark Cuban, Emmitt Smith, and Troy Aikman.

Dave prides himself on being easy to work with, enjoyable on the set, and very knowledgeable on post-production.  He would love to get to know you and your project so he can help you realize your vision.
