    Need some suggestions!
    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

    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.
