Fact of my life: I suck at deciding on a name. I've come up with a few good studio names, but can't decide. Here is my list, and tell me which ones you like, which are gay, and whatever else.

1.Scicodelic Studios
2.Sixth Mangnitude Productions
3.Sixth Mangnitude Studios

Please give your opinions, BUT DO NOT COPY THEM!!!!

Vote for the best with the poll.

S.D.

I know, It's just the way I wanted it. I like the prefix Sci (hence my name) so I applied it to everything that started with "Psy", and changed Psychodelic to Scicodelic because it sounds best.

To be honest, I would pick none of them. I (in my opinion) would prefer something that wasnt any of those, and wasnt so childish (even if you are a child). But, knowing people like you (which I don't razz) I'd say you've chosen and our opinion does not matter unsure

And, just to annoy you, I stole all those names and copwrote them so there!










(well, I didn't, but it'd be funny)

Yeah, I vote for none, but I ESPECIALLY DON'T VOTE for Half Life Productions because you TOTALLY stole that one.

I did? Didn't mean to. I was looking through my Science book for cool words, and Half-Life was one of them. In that case, forget Half-life. Sorry MechaForce

I really can't decide as I think they're all quite lame - but what do I know, all I could come up with for me was 'CJ Productions' crazy

It would help better if we knew what it is you were wanting to create under this 'banner' - that way, we may even be able to suggest something smile

In the meantime, if anyone can come up with something better for me, I'm all ears (not literally as I would look silly). My info is on my website - http://www.cjproductions.co.uk

As I told you, I suck horribly with names. Yeah, I know their lame, but that's all I could think of during my lechure 7th period.

FYI: If you even give a care, a sixth-magnitude star is the dimmest star in the sky.

Scicodelic Studios
Sixth Mangnitude Productions
Sixth Mangnitude Studios

Scicodelic Studios This looks like sicko-delic to me when I read it (but perhaps that's just me!)
If you hyphenated it to be Sci-codelic that way emphasizing the 'Sci' element

Sixth Mangnitude Productions & Sixth Mangnitude Studios Is there something significant about 'Sixth Magnitude' that I'm missing?

But like I said - if we know more on what you're wanting to achieve with your 'company' then a more suitable name can be made.

This tells me what sixth-magnitude means but not why it should relate to you specifically.

I'm not sure you want to be associated with the dimmest star in the sky.

Just trying to help (like I said, I probably suck even more - Name Craig John. Cool name to come up with - my initials ('CJ') then have 'Productions' - ooh, that was inspired!)

It's unfortunate that in this day and age you have to look to see if there are any current companies with web site on them before you come up with a company name yourself.

It makes choosing a name that much difficult! sad

I liked Infinite Studios by the way

How about Infinitas Studios©? It's "infinity" in Latin, and hasn't been taken yet. Yes, no? Good, bad? Please give suggestions. Thanks.

Butt-loads of legal paper work. My dad has a entrepreneur legal pass thingy, so I just talk to him to copyright it. But to copyright a movie, program, etc., just put "Copyright [year here]" somewhere on it.

Copyright happens as soon as you create something. You'd probably want to trademark or servicemark a studio name.

Just USING a name gives you a limited trademark, but only for the area in which you operate and only within a narrow range of activities -- so there can be "Ajax Car Rentals" and "Ajax Floor Wax", for example.

In the US, for a full (registered) trademark, you need to submit paperwork to the Patent and Trademark Office and pay a fee. I don't know what the fee is; the number $1,000 comes to mind, but that's probably wrong.

Chilling Effects has a good trademark FAQ:
