Skatboarding, music, friends.

I just tstarted with fx.

And zeroo was a typo, it was supposed to be Zero. But Zero, to me, is just a base, it is empty and "alone", the overall feeling of the number and what it represents apeals to me.

ok. so zero is not really a name that represents an aspect of your effects. i would suggest that you wait a while and see what kind of fx really interest you. the first program i ever used was called crimson fx for lightsabers. i liked the sabers so much, i called my studio crimson flame productions after it. also, it had a sort of ring to it. so i chose that.

i hope this was at least a little helpful, but here is the most important peice of advice. dont be self conciuos about your sudio name. you thing that Apple or Microsoft were? think about it, they're really wierd names. how about iPod? it seams normal now, but to the creaters, it must have sounded wierd. so whatever you choose, stick with it. i have a friend who loves to write short stories and the like, and one of his characters is called russel suade. so his is suade jacket productions. so basically, its all good.

good luck, and i cant wait to see what your studio makes.

Imaginationless Films? Oh yeah, he would get hired. o_0 Even if the name is sort of a play on the amount of imagination he has, it would be cocky and they might expect a lot. Not many imaginationless people would name themselves that unless they thought they had a greta imagination.

Here're mine:

Silver Twilight Films
Zero Studios
Zero Films (No pun intended) //joke
**Crimson Twilight Films
Initials + Studios/Films/Pictures
That's all I can think of. Chage the Studios/Films/Pictures/Entertainment/whatever around until it sounds cool.

**This was my favorite and I would personally use it, sets up for a possibly brilliant intro. Thought of it myself and I am officially giving it to Zeroo if he wants it. If he doesn't, then it is up for grabs. According to Google, it isn't taken.

I think it's always much better to have a name with a histroy behind it, be it your childhood nickname or a word you made up by accident - like Zeroo.

At the end of the day the name of your studios is near to irrelevant, unless you're extremely talented and therefore likely to use the name for something commercial.

Presumably you're deliberating over the name because you feel somehow pressured to a) have a name at all b) make it a good one, coz otherwise people will take the piss.

FXHomers have an unfounded preoccupation with setting up studios and believing that people will actually buy the completely in-experienced products of a bunch of 15 year olds.

To be honest, unless you're also going down this wildly misguided route, you don't need a name - just have "A movie from Zeroo" in a decent font and it looks just as good as some transparently over-thought-out studio name. And frankly, if someone is criticising the name of your studios, they've got too much time on their hands and are tragically detached from the bigger picture - your movie itself.

Pick something, anything, go with it and give it a decent design. Apple are called Apple ffs. WEAK! yet they're a global corporation. Go figure.

Makes sense. And no, I am not planning on selling anything.

I am actually going to use Sharpend Edge Prodctions.

It is one of my favorite songs by The Used. The songs name is acually light with a sharpend edge.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Call yourself "Z". With no production sideline, or anything, that way people are curious and intrigued to watch more when they see it.

Or Z Media, because you said you were also into media forms. (skateboarding, music, etc.)

Xcession, you being an adult may think it is dumb to spend time on thinking of a name, but when I was a younger kid (11 years old at that time), I loved setting up my own little "studio." Now it really doesn't matter to me, but it is something cool to think about. You don't have to sell stuff to come up with a name, it's all in good fun. And if you ever come up with a website, you should choose an appropriate URL for the studio, it should sound good if you're going to pay for the service. If you don't pay for a site, you can change it whenever you don't like it. I am 16 and I have stuck with the name.

Think about what you do and who is in your Studio.

My wife's name is Sam. My last name is Campbell, but my wife calls me Cam (rather than use my first name - don't ask me why eek ).

So when we started our own business last year it was obvious our company name would become SamCam Productions (SamCam - one word, two capitals).

Simple, but the best ideas usually are smile

Part of organizing a crew is coming up with the name. Its your crew, you equipment, your ideas, so make it YOURS altogether. Don't sell yourself short, and let a total stranger come up with an idea. Part of making successful movies is creativity, and you may want to start off with making a creative and original production name and logo.

I came up with this when I was a little kid. And when I say "came up with", I really mean I stole it from something. I feel horrible about it, but I google searched and actually didn't find anyone else using this. Besides. It was way too late before I realized what I had done.

First off, the idea was made when I was 11 years old. And again, I will stick with the name because it causes me to look back on past projects, like my notorious colonial bigfoot films, and it symbolizes tradition.

It's Lithium Kraft. lol.

Ok, so as a...younger child I noticed a song from the Community Bonus Pack for UT2K4 was called "Lithium Kraft - The End".

Then I guess you can infer what happened next.

But anyways, I found out later when using FL Studio that the true author of the song was named JasonC. And that's all I found out. But anyways, if you google search Lithium Kraft, I'm the first thing that comes up...

Well anyways. I was too young to be sued and I can't change my name.



But "Lithium Kraft" is not the studio name we use now anyways. For now it's "Perpetually Disturbed Productions" because looking back at the old "movies" we made gave viewers the impression that the directors and actors recently escaped from the monkey house.

Which we did.

Promise you won't tell anyone else? shhh

That's it, shut up. You say cheer up after every post. No one is sad, no one said they are said, just shut up. I am sick of your stupid posts. This thread is almost a year old. Maybe he is expressing yourself. Come on yourself. Get a psychiatrist, you're insane. I'm sorry if this is really harsh, but you are being annoying, youa re annoying, and you need a life.
