It Started as a dream…
Houston Creative Media is HCM Associates, LLC, a Texas-based, family-owned company focusing on storytelling through media production.
HCM is an acronym for:
It’s also, conveniently, the initials of Houston Creative Media.
Our company was born in 2016 out of necessity. Nobody in their right mind starts a company “just because.” We launched this company because we saw that the world was far too full of division, rancor, and devoid of mercy and compassion. It was started by David Alexander and Eleni Papageorge as a dream to combine David’s 20+ years of experience in Information Technology with the best in digital creativity. It started because after David recovered from illness he wanted to pay back the kindness he had received. Digital media was the perfect fusion of technology and artistry.
We’ve achieved international recognition (2018 Greek Event Awards Bronze Medal) and were the recipient of a 2019 Lone Star Emmy.
In the last five years, we’ve not only won two major awards, David Alexander, the Creative Director, has appeared in three commercials in the UK, two of which were with our business partner Viddyoze, and one with Virgin Trains (click on the image to see two of the videos) .
