    I've got a few film projects prepped for next semester of college and I need to come up with a production name. As I've made the films essentially by myself, I'd like to have my name within the actual production name itself. So with a name like "Brandon Lee Smith", it (to me) sounds sort of boring, generic, and has no real spark'. Many named production companies use offshoots of their real names and are pretty successful at it. I've been trying to come up with something but can't figure one out.

    So... any suggestions?

    I read your ATOT name as "Cock zilla" so go with that.

    Your name is too common. It worked for Bruckheimer Productions... not so much for Smith, Lee, Brandon or any combination of those names. :p

    I actually thought that too but decided it was too redundant... I guess he could be blatant about it with Filmsmith films. :awe:

    Instead of picking a production company name that is based off of your name, why not pick one based on random shit? For example, Opened Box Productions, Broken Sprinkler Productions, or Purple Drank Productions.

    How about an anagram of your real name?

    Bad Hermit Nelson
    Snotbrained Helm

    Agreed completely... I've never liked my name for that reason heh!

    I would agree with you, except I honestly would like to have my name (even loosely) tied to its representation. If I were to call it something like "Opened Box Productions" as you say, it seems like a full company was behind it rather than just one person.

    I appreciate the suggestions thus far!

    Or if not your name than:

    Miracle Films
    If it's a good film, it's a Miracle.
