Yeah, Brave New Films. Short and sweet. It has a positive connotation, but also references Orwell.

duh... I mean Aldous Huxley.

I never read Brave New World. I did read 1984, which should be required reading for all Americans.

I really like Brave New Films, and I don't really like any of the rest. Of course, Obstruction Productions DOES have a nice ring to it, though it sounds like RWR's suggestions were too late.

Did Jim appoint you editor of this site? Or have you decided you are right for the position?

Tom from Madison:

OK if I have to pick from the list I say Truth2Power wins.

Right now we live in a time where right-wing idiots are denying the facts as a display of loyalty to the President. Bush will go down as the greatest propagandist ever elected. Our hope as a nation hinges on the truth getting out. If there isn't power in that, the American experiment has failed.

Brave New Films. The others simply lack a ring--except Outfox Media, that sounds good. Still, Brave New Films has more weight...

I like Progressivision and Brave New Films...

Grassroots Media would be nice, too. (As opposed to Grassroots Films.)

Yes. Brave New Films. Bold. Positive. Broad.

Tue Mar 22 2005 8:29 AM


I like Uncompromised Films.

Oooh, Progressivision!

But Brave New Films is cool too. And less cheesy, right?
