Alright, for my film studies class we been assigned to create a film-company from scratch. Over the course of the past semester we been making short videos and whatnot so now we need to create a website, Youtube channel, etc.. to promote those videos and spread the word.

I need help coming up with a name. Something clever (you remember names such as Lionsgate, Dreamworks, Lakeshore, etc..) and catchy that will remain in peoples minds and hopefully cause them to come back. Some of the suffixes I could use: Entertainment, Productions, Pictures, Studios, etc. Any ideas?

Thanks ahead of time,

Tomas

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

In the creative area that you're studying (film studies)...aren't you supposed to use your own "creative juices" to come up with a name?

Isn't it sort of like defeating the purpose of the assignment...if you get a great idea from someone else over the internet?

My 2 cents,

Then you would be famous...and could buy any Macintosh you wanted!

Although the laptop you're getting is pretty darn nice!

That you are, but, I was curious to see what other people come up with as well. I figured this would be easy but I sat down yesterday and after six hours, came up with nothing.

I "feel" for ya...this sort of assignment is not always as easy as it sounds.

It's sort of like being told to sit down & come up with a brand new invention...and by the way...you have 48 hours to do it!

I guess the big question is...if someone posts a great idea here on the Mac-Forums...will you:

- use it verbatim
- modify it slightly
- not use it

Temptation grasshopper...temptation!

Good luck,

- Nick

All my short films are still-picture based, pretty much the same style as Kebn Burns. I don't focus on one genre though, which is why it's tough to come up with something specific.

"No no. No. You don't understand. You can't make a deal with him. Even if you gave him the money he'd still kill you. He's a peculiar man. You could even say that he has principles. Principles that transcend money or drugs or anything like that. He's not like you. He's not even like me.... "
