About aNm

aNm – est’d 2005

It started with a need; then it became a dream. In its infant stages, alterNative Media (called, ‘Caddo Man Productions’ back then) sprang forth from the various media, technical, and/or production needs of family, friends, and colleagues.

Over time we organically expanded into other areas of expertise, offering artistic and technical services to various clientele.

As aNm emerged in its current form, we began dreaming of bigger and brighter things. With that, our client base grew with us, asking for more innovative and creative solutions to their needs.

Today, our services have expanded to include state-of-the-art technological and artistic expertise. services, innovations, and products to an ever-growing list of happy clients, on the local, regional, and global level. Our people are like family and we our proud of both where we came from and where we are going in the future.

New Look – Same Focus & Drive

In 2016, aNm updated our logo to a more stylized look and feel, as seen above. Moving away from a visual style focused on 3D modeling, our new logo is lean, clean, and on-fire!

The flame itself visually hints at our Indigenous (Caddo) ownership, but also suggests a continued presence of innovation and creative fire in all we do.


Software & app authoring and development? Yes. Comic book & graphic novel writing & creation? Yes. AR,VR, 3D simulations, & games? Yes. See our Services page for more details about how aNm can help add creativity and innovation to your projects.
