Could you guys please help me pick a new productions name for my films. I make mostly comedy so It would be nice for it to have something to do with something funny. Dont make it corny like (SillyFilms) or (HalariousProductions) or something. I would prefer it to end with films like “MediocreFilms”.
Would the Sony HDR-FX1000 be good forindy/gorillafilmakeing? If I got it how long do you think it would last me?

The FX1000 is a good camera. How long it lasts depends on how well you take care of it.

No, I mean how long do you think it will be before I would need a new one.

Well that depends on what kind of work you do and who you’re doing it for.
Don’t get caught up in technology and think that you need the latest and greatest of everything to make great video. If you’re any good, you can make a good video with a VHS camera. Don’t blow all your money on just a camera. Get audio and lighting equipment as well. No matter how good your camera is, it will look like crap if the scene isn’t lit. And no matter how good your camera is, if the audio sucks, the end result sucks.

Well having a production name is corny anyway….

Corny is subjective, but “specific” to the brand can become a GREAT business asset. Have you ever come across some of the movie production house names (especially those dealing successfully and with rich rewards in the animation sector).
Seems if comedy is your production focus, then something specific to comedy might be apropriate. On the other hand, whatever you wind up doing “film isn’t video, and video isn’t film” – FILM might be a bit too sophisticated for a firm focusing on production of comedy video.

Farce, Reelgags, I can’t decide films, pick-a-name films, slapstik, (Slapstick – have a clapper board slap)

Frankly, I like firms to end with “Productions” rather than “Films” as are you really using film?
So for all these examples, you could use Films or Productions interchangeably.
“The Rotten Tomato Film Project” (Or just Rotten Tomato Films if you prefer)
“Butt Of The Joke Films”
“Hardy & Laurel Films”(Or “Lorrell & Hearty Films” if there’s a copyright issue)
“Muted Laughter Films”
