Default Name That Prodco!

I was at a party last night--and who wasn't! (except for most kitty cats)--and
I talked to a fellow who worked for an up-and-coming production company.
It had an unusual name--8 letters beginning with "A," and it
had four syllables, which combined the first two letters of the first names
of the owner's four kids.

I can remember all that, but I can't remember the name of the company.
It obviously was a major player because the guy I was talking to said
the outfit read a lot of scripts from William Morris/Endeavor.

Anyone have an idea what the name of this company is--before I vow
never to drink another margarita (or two) at a party?

I'm just curious how you remembered all those other weird details but not the name itself.

And also, if anyone actually figures this out I'll eat a frisbee.

9 letters? Annapurna Productions?


Used "Like "a*" query in my own database... nothing else looked like an anagrammie type of thingie

Thanks for the quick replies, you two--especially CatCon, who seems to be forever helpful. I'm wondering, myself, how I remembered everything but the name. My only defense is that the acronym was hard to remember--but
it obviously is not impossible to pronounce since it is a viable company.

And, CC, Annapurna is a great guess, but that's 9 letters, and I distinctly
remember the guy saying it was 8 letters--representing the first two letters of four kids' names.

I'll let you know when it comes to me--via hook or crook!

The more I think about it (and thanks to polite prodding from catcon and
Nikee Goddess), the more it occurs to me (as the haze lifts) that the prodco
may well have not begun with an "A," but it had 8 letters for sure.

And two each were the first two letters of four kids' names. So I shall now
go laboriously through Done Deal's list of prodcos--until (God help me!) I
find this nugget of networking.

I'll keep the minions apprised!

Haze, yes, that's why I offered up the one with 9 letters. First rule of computer-type technical support (and probably any technical support) is to confirm the facts that the user thinks they know!

So, anyway, you're challenging me and my database skills?

Yes, there's a simple query to do it, and obviously I've not brought down ALL of DDPro's entries into my own contact list, and there may be "film company" or "productions" etc. in the name, and that blows away the test.

So, from my list, here are the 8 character names with no prefixes or suffixes. I don't see it here, unless it's the first one!

Chatrone
Folimage
Greenlit
InDigEnt
Rexmedia

Sorry, you'll just have to write it off (or just remember the name of the person you spoke with and dig it from there)

Thanks, catcon! You're a beacon. I appreciate your daunting diligence
in my behalf. I'm up to the P's in Done Deal's list of prodcos. Only took me
a couple of hours.

I will double-check Chatrone. Definitely a possibility. I'm surprised at how relatively few 8-letter prodcos there are.
