I prefer Rogue Icon Film(s). I think... No maybe Rogue Legend... No, Rogue Icon... Yeah, Rogue Icon.

But Lorinda has a point about the 'Ro-guicon' thing.

It's a big thing isn't it. I know I went through h*ll, and sometimes I second guess myself http://www.cutlassfilm.com/beta but I've got so much invested in it now...

I like Rogue Icon, but Rogue and Icon are already used by a couple of established film/production companies so it might cause confusion down the road.

Here's a few more, and they're all 3 syllables so they slide of your tongue easily.

Rogue Image
Rogue Picture
Rogue Idol (my fave, even though it makes me think of American Idol)

The word Rogue conjures up strong images--great for a film production company. For me, the problem is in the flow of syllables. The guh sound in Rogue is such a strong stopping point that it's difficult to find a word that flows easily from there. When I start playing with Rogue as the second word in a name, it's much easier to find flow.

Without much thought, the first thing that comes to mind is Rocket Rogue. I'm new here, so don't have much idea of the personality of your company. What do you want people to feel when they see/say your name? Another name pops up that I kinda like: Open Rogue Films.

word,
thomas

I should add that "Rogue" and "Icon" seem like fairly common name-words among indie filmmakers (try a Google search for Rogue Productions); so you might at least consider something less popular that carries similar meaning, like "Scoundrel" or "Rascal". Or "Troublemaker"- oh wait it looks like Robert Rodriguez took that one. Anyway, just my 2c from doing brand development work- good luck on the name quest.
