Name The New PNC Video Dolly – Contest

question-pop-product-newquestion-pop-product-new

To be clear, PNC (PhotographyandCinema.com) is a company I design for and you'll see me blog about those products periodically. Today i'm giving you some inside information that PNC will be releasing a new full size rotating video dolly very soon. The wider platform on the new rotating video dolly will be able to support much larger and heavier cameras like the RED Scarlet, FS100, AF100, mount larger video fluid heads, and hold more accessories. It's a very interesting design, which I think you'll all love, but so far we can't come up with a name. I actually have less than 24 hours to come up with something clever, so i'm crowd sourcing for ideas in a contest sort of fashion.

We need suggestions for a name, and if PNC decides to use it, you'll be one of the first to recieve this new Full Size Rotating Video Dolly - FREE. This includes International countries too! If it helps, the new Dolly will be mostly black with red accents, still have four wheels, and two unusually designed axles to adjust for rotation. Leave those suggestions in the comments, and make sure you're using your real email address to get notified. Don't forget to Tweet about this contest!

    How could it be named anything but the "Salvador Dolly"?
    Salvador had a love for everything that was gilded and excessive. Being a bigger dolly would fit the bill on that.

    Can't wait to see the new dolly on the market.

    I ran through ALL the suggestions and here are my favorites.
    It's interesting that almost all come from guys who only posted one name - they obviously gave thought about it instead of spitting out names randomly.

    - Chuck Norris Dolly (my favorite, not possible though of course 🙂 )

    - Kilo (2 syllables like Pico, immidiately suggests that it's the 'heavy duty' dolly version)

    - Kawa (2 syllables like Pico, nice meaning of the Japanese word, 'stream/good story'; like the sound of it)

    - Tera (2 syllables like Pico, opposite meaning of Pico, makes sense for product line context)

    - Komodo (although Komodo is the name of the island and not the varan, if it's called 'Komodo Dolly' it instantly brings up the picture of the animal, which is the biggest living reptile and thus makes sense as the dolly will be the 'heavy duty' version; also like the sound of it)

    Could be that I forget another nice one. if you can't make Chuck Norris allow you to use his name, I'd vote for one of these.

  9. Darius

    The PNC Arachnid.

    The PNC Helix Dolly

    That Dolly Parton joke is getting a lot of run, I can't wait to see what the actual name ends up being.

  10. Bernie H.

    Hi Emm,
    I would suggest the following:

    Dolly Parton

    Lol.:D

    kidding aside...

    Dolly be good
    Hercules dolly
    Superflex dolly

  11. Kirk

    Here are a few names for the contest. I wanted to make sure the name was something that was strong and professional. The name needs to inspire confidence in the quality and build of the dolly. It also needs to be something simple and easy to remember/brand. Here are my 3 submissions.

    PNC's *** PILOT *** (FLEX) DOLLY (PILOT)

    PNC's *** TANGO *** (FLEX) DOLLY (TANGO)

    PNC's *** HAWKEYE *** (FLEX) DOLLY (HAWKEYE)

  12. Tomosh

    *Culuri (Curuli)
    or
    *Kuluri (Kuruli)
    (a casual japanese word for "to rotate")

    Itoco Dolly
    ("iitolo dori" is a phrase in Japanese that represents "all greatness in one", or "focusing on only the good") thought it matches this Dolly

  13. Robert T

    Pico Flex CinePro Dolly

    Pico Flex ProCam Dolly

    The ideea is to add to the original name who is already a little famous. So it's a product from the same line, only for bigger pro cameras.

  14. Sébastien

    - Ultimo Dolly
    - Aireo Dolly
    - Apollo Dolly
    - Astro Dolly
    - Cosmo Dolly

    - Bela Dolly
    - Bullet Dolly

  15. Raymundo

    Are you using differential gears perhaps? Perhaps a play on that.

    Differential Dolly?
    Pinion Flex Dolly? (a pinion is a type of gear arrangement)

    Or perhaps a play on how it adjusts for rotation, using words like orbit or revolution (as in a rotation).

    Flex Revolution Dolly?
    Revo Flex Dolly? <------THIS ONE

    Add a "pro" in there?

  16. Michel

    Kawa

    It's Japanese and means 'River/Stream' but can also mean 'Good Story'.
    4 letters, 2 syllables like 'Pico'

  17. Darius

    The PNC Voodoo Dolly.

    The Oscillator.

    The Hedgehog.

    The Samurai Dolly.

    The Ninja Dolly.

    The Circumnavigator.

    The Navigator.

    The Widow Maker.

    I at least want an A for effort!

  19. David

    You obviously have more than enough suggestions and after reading them all I can't think of one to give you that already been said... So my chances of you picking the name I give you are very slim....so could you just send me one for free please?. BTW I'm the one that came up with the idea of using Skate Buds remember? 🙂

  20. svem

    I think the main attraction to this dolly product is the cool 360 degree shots you can get with it. That's the money shot.

    Hence,

    360 Moneyshot Dolly/Money Shot Dolly 360/360 Moneyshot/Moneyshot360/Dolly Moneyshot

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Money_shot

    "A money shot is a moving or stationary visual element of a film, video, television broadcast, print publication, etc., that is disproportionately expensive to produce and/or is perceived as essential to the overall importance or revenue-generating potential of the work"

  28. Hi Emm

    I've already submitted my suggestion for the names. But may i also suggest to consider when picking the name to:
    1. Stay true to your product name line, the Pico Dolly was a big hit.
    2. If you do pick out a totally new name. It should be easily related and undertood what it stands for.
    3. Keep it simple, catchy but fresh and pro all at the same time.

    Thanks

  29. The first thing that came to in to my head was...

    The Humpty Dumpty

    I don't need a cool torqued name, if the gear itself is cooler than any name.
    it rolls around and stuff

  30. I like the animal names people are listing. The name should be quick to say and distinct enough to be used as set jargon. My idea is:

    The Mamba Dolly

    I can't wait to see it!

  31. Justin

    Power Flex Dolly

    Exa Flex Dolly

    Cineroller

  32. Eric covello

    Since you guys made the spider trax, and your description is black with red accents you should definitely call this one the Black Widow!

    P = PNC and also "PRO" = professional

    Good luck!

    There's a lot of camera stuff out there with the color black and red so here's hoping the unusual double axle design is the main selling point. 🙂 The colors may change over time as the product evolves. And thus the two axle design reflect my attempts to name it.

    Axis is latin for Axle.
    PNC Dual-Axis Dolly
    PNC Duo-Axis Dolly
    PNC Axis-Duo Dolly
    PNC Twin-Axis Dolly
    PNC Demi-Axis Dolly
    PNC Two-Axis Dolly
    PNC Dos-Axle Dolly

    Axis sounds better than Axle to me, but I suppose you could swap Axis for Axle in the names.
    PNC Dual-Axle Dolly
    PNC Duo-Axle Dolly
    PNC Twin-Axle Dolly
    PNC Demi-Axle Dolly
    PNC Two-Axle Dolly
    PNC Dos-Axle Dolly

    The video dolly should be called:

    "The Mother" or "Mother" (Named after the British tank.)

    Because the tank "Mark I, nicknamed Mother, was much longer than the first tank they made. This kept the centre of gravity low and the extra length helped the tank grip the ground. Sponsons were also fitted to the sides to accommodate two naval 6-pound guns." http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/FWWmother.htm

    SO: In a simular way the new PNC Video Dolly will have a "wider platform on the new rotating video dolly will be able to support much larger and heavier cameras like the RED Scarlet, FS100, AF100, mount larger video fluid heads, and hold more accessories."

    And like the tank it will accommodate much larger and heavier items - hence the name "the Mother"

    Here are my top three:
    Helios
    Scorpion
    Scorpio

    Or Achille's (due to the fact the footage is on wheels and "speeds" up the dolly footage and it's supporting the camera like a "heel")

  59. Helge

    It should have a classic and easy to remember name. Like Rolly. Who wouldn't want a Rolly? Sounds like a cute dog!

  60. Paolo Bernardini

    Here are my entries:

    - Cam Flex Dolly
    - Digicam Flex Dolly

    These names are brand coherent and points to bigger cameras rather than DSLRs.

    Variations:
    - Cam Dolly
    - Digicam Dolly
    - Dollycam
    - Flex Dolly Cam
    - RotoCam Dolly
    - RotoCam Flex Dolly
    - Camera Flex Dolly
    - Videocam Dolly

  61. Anthony

    Use either PNC or Pico at start if you like.

    PNC Strike
    PNC Crimson
    PNC Mandrel
    PNC Axle
    PNC Redback
    PNC Red Belly

  62. chriswatts

    Since it's a larger version of the Pico Flex it would be good to keep a similar name, good for people linking the products together in their minds and good for SEO.
    How about Cine Flex or Pro Flex. Nothing world changing but it links it to the original pico flex.

  63. Hi, nice contest heres my submition:

    Hi Emm.

    From the colours to judge I would give it one of this names:

    Devil (Dolly)-optinal

    Teufel (Dolly)-optinal

    Gothic (Dolly)-optinal

    Punk (Dolly)-optinal

    Metal (Dolly)-optinal

    Black Mamba (Dolly)-optinal

    Red Mamba (Dolly)-optinal

    Pirate (Dolly)-optinal

    Salamander (Dolly)-optinal

    And please no Spam on my e-mail adress.

  67. A couple more I just thought of:

    - Barracuda (sleek, deadly, circles it's prey relentlessly, then strikes. The dolly just gives that predatory appearance. It's also a hella cool detroit muscle car. =>)
    - Dark Star, Dark Satellite, or Dark Sun (Watching the early videos, it has the appearance of something sci-fi, almost menacing in appearance.)
    - Techno Dolly (It gives off a bit of a techno, club type vibe.)

    Enjoy! I also Laughed Out Loud with the "Dolly Green Giant" good one. =>

  68. Eric

    1. PodRunner
    2. Glide-iator
    3. Heavy Butterfly
    4. Bazilisk Motion [from name of a lizard that can run on water]

    Go PnC!!! Hope I win.

  69. PNC HDolly (or PNC H Dolly) / Pico HDolly (or Pico H Dolly).

    Simple, elegant and playful. And I think the "HD" is quickly associated with positive things; and you always have a chance to come up with a higher-quality product called the PNC 4K Dolly, ;).

  70. Sotirios Seryiannis

    Hi, it's a Dolly, with Flexible movement and 4 wheels.

    Tetra is a numerical prefix of Greek origin that refers to four.

    Tetra Flex Dolly

    I think it's catchy and in-line with Pico Flex Dolly 🙂

  71. J Toha

    Lots of creative people out there lol.

  73. Andy

    To go with the Pico Dolly line, it should be something that references its size

    Kilo Dolly
    Mega Dolly
    Giga Dolly
    Tera Dolly or
    Terra Dolly (it has a double meaning: size and earth, since it will be used on the ground)

  74. Daniel H.

    Black and red makes me think of cool snakes:

    Cobra Dolly

    Viper Dolly

    Or to go with your other dolly name:

    Cobra Trax Dolly

    Viper Trax Dolly

    My vote goes to Tera Dolly. From reading the previous post, sucks that someone already beat me to it. If Tera gets chosen. PNC can keep their product name and future product name inlined with the metric system.

  76. Emin Sertac Apanay

    i would like this one 🙂 even the music would fit with a tracking shot for the commercial 🙂

    The PnC Axel F Dolly
    The Axel PnC Dolly

  77. Simon

    I suggest:

    "PRO-Roller"
    "Roll Board PRO"
    "Roller-PRO"

    needs PRO in it to signify full sized heads and justify price IMHO.

    Simon

  78. Jordan Oliver

    You need to keep it in pace with the other Spanish names!

    Papa Pico Dolly

    Pico Grande Dolly

    Guapo Dolly

    Guapo Grande Dolly

    My favorite though: Volar = Fly

    Volar Dolly

    Volar Roller Dolly

    Volar HD Dolly

  79. My top suggestion is Pico 360X Dolly. You could drop the X but I like how it rhymes with your current "Flex" and implies that it is BIGGER. Plus if you make a smaller model down the road you could call it the 360s Dolly.

    Other ideas are:
    Pico Cine360 Dolly
    Pico FlexPro Dolly
    Pico Roundabout Dolly (aka "The Roundabout")
    Pico DD360 (aka "The Double D" ... a nod to another top-heavy Dolly that manages to move around just fine. Seriously though, the DD is because it's double the dolly any one else makes.)

  80. Land Glider (FLEX) Dolly
    Range Glider (FLEX) Dolly
    Space Glider (FLEX) Dolly
    Glide Craft (FLEX) Dolly
    Space Craft (FLEX) Dolly
    Land Craft (FLEX) Dolly
    Hover Craft (FLEX) Dolly
    Land Cruiser (FLEX) Dolly
    Space Cruiser (FLEX) Dolly
    Cruiser (FLEX) Dolly
    Rover (FLEX) Dolly
    Glider (FLEX) Dolly
    Range Rover (FLEX) Dolly
    Land Rover (FLEX) Dolly
    Space Rover (FLEX) Dolly

    Pico - (symbol p) is a prefix in the metric system denoting a factor of 10−12 or 0.000000000001.

    Tera - (symbol: T) is a prefix in the metric system denoting 1012 or 1000000000000.

    Since Tera is on the opposite side of pico. It should be called Tera Dolly.

  82. Navigator (FLEX) Dolly

    - The M (M for mobility, and also Emm like your namesake)
    - Infinity Dolly (just like your demo video panning around a subject)
    - Hoverboard (glides, slides slices and dices. Also gets away from all the "dolly" names)
    - Smooth Operator (yeah, some Sade influence now. => Sexy, silky, and OOHH SOO SMOOTH!)
    - Glideboard (another variant of hoverboard)
    - Smooth Board (again another variant)
    - Nano Dolly (it's big, but not as big as some of the dollys, tracks, and industry sliders. A bit bigger than the Pico Dolly)
    - Micro Dolly (just a step up from Nano, and a couple more than Pico)

    Hope you like the suggestions Emm!

    Smove dolly pro
    Smove dolly extreme
    Smove dx
    Smove pro

    Just build something around smove. Now can I send the shipping adress?

  89. The Atlas-Flex, because it's carrying the weight on it's back

    Atlas was a Titan, so maybe even the
    Titan-Flex

    Lastly, if you don't want it in the "-flex" family, what about just calling it the "Big Rig"?

  90. Tony

    Sell an insane amount of units:

    iDolly & iDolly Pro =)

    Motus Pro Dolly (motus is latin for "motion")

  91. Justin Leyba

    How about:

    1. The PNC Pro Dolly (simple but yet, says it all)
    2. Pico Flex Master (since it holds more pro cameras like the RED, and its like a brother to the Pico dollies)
    3. Tiger Dolly (since it has four legs and this dolly has four wheels. also they're both very fierce and SMOOTH... =}
    4. The Black Jaguar or the PNC Black Jaguar (instead of the tiger dolly you can call it the black jaguar since the dolly is black)
    5. The Cinema Dolly (got it from the PNC name and since it can hold cameras like the RED)
    6. the PNC Dolly Pro 360 or simply, the PNC 360 Pro

    Lastly, the PNC Dolly Parton' cuz it's BIG and it's a dolly. lol. I understand if you guys won't choose that one. Haha!
    Hope I helped!

  92. Since the * key difference * to the other ones is the amount/size/weight it can carry, a great idea would be for the dolly's name to carry its function. Historic and iconic translations that exemplify such an idea are:

    1. The Camel / The Camel Dolly: Camels have the amazing ability to carry large amounts of equipment, they are wildly known for their resistance (Specially famous in the army for being exceedingly strong, and can move quickly across terrains which horses find difficult) ; the word camel signifies "beauty" which also appeals to the nature of the dolly's design.

    2.The Donkey / The Donkey Dolly: Just as the camel, the Donkey is famous for being able to carry large amounts of equipment, specially over tough terrain.

    3. The Red Ant: Inspired by the red African ant, which is famous for its tough nature (Also adds to its working/soldier behavior) and obviously for the fame they have of being able to carry 100x times their own weight. This name would also appeal to the colors of the dolly's design.

    4. Rocky: As Rocky from the movie, an icon for strength.

    5. Black Belt: Appeals to the highest rank of skill in martial arts...& maybe Red Belt could be used as a new standard.

    Essence words:

    6. Vires Dolly: Vires is the latin word for strenght

    7. Firmitas Dolly: Firmitas is the latin word for resistance/firmness.

    8. Fortiori: Lating word for The Strongest

  93. Habez

    Call it the Emm Not-So-Pocket Dolly (lol) jk.

    But i do like the idea of slapping your brand on the dolly though.

    Like the cheesy dolly pro. Or something like that. Lol. Heaven knows you deserve some kind of credit eh! 😀

    • FS Crawler (Full Size Crawler)

    • FS Low Roller (Full Size LowRoller)

    • 360 Runner

    • TR360 (Table Runner 360)

  95. Emm it is very simple. What is the most important part of any slider? The movement, soft, glide like movement. So for that FLOW is a great description, also movement is the word that describe the actual action, so if you feel like combining i am giving you a couple of options:

    FlowTrack

    MoveFlow

    Cineflow

    cinemaFlow

    Thanks in advance for the price, I will be waiting for it here in México, if shipping is expensive send it to my warehowse in Orlando and I will pick it up from there.

    Thanks a lot for teh gift, hehe, I am sure I have the best names. We have worked for branding for over 12 years now at our design studio.

    Waiting for the Slider

    Sturdolly

    DD - Diverse dolly

  97. My suggestions

    Pico Dolly+
    Pico HD Dolly
    Pico Dolly Plus+
    Pro Pico HD
    Pro Pico Plus+
    Pro Pico Dolly Plus+
    Pro Pico+
    Pico Pro Dolly+
    Pro HD Dolly
    Pico Hybrid Dolly

    Being this dolly is suited for larger cameras, a "+" or "HD" to the name signifies more and pro use.

    Good luck Emm

  98. D

    I was gonna say the T-Rex but it looks like someone grabbed that gemofaname already... My entry is "The Big Round".

  99. Diego

    Here are some names I came up with:

    1: Tarantula Dolly
    2: Bowser Dolly
    3: Bulldog Dolly
    4: Bulli Dolly

  100. The Origin. or the The Origin dolly pro.

    The reason I use the word origin, is that it derives right from 3d design.

    The origin is the center of all the movement when designing an 3d object. You rotate around the origin and you dolly in and out of the origin.

    Or maybe.

    The Target or The Target dolly pro.

    Back to 3D design. A target camera is a camera that focus right on a single object.

    Much like how these dollies are primarily used for rotating around a single object.

    Or just call it the Black fire haha. Black with the burning red accents.

  101. Base X Dolly System

    4 Trax Pro

    Pico Pro

    Focal Flex

    Flex X Dolly

    R2P2 -R ROLLER, P - Progressive

  102. Gary

    This might be too left field, but for some reason after reading the description I thought of the Odessa stairs sequence (baby carriage down the stairs) from The Battleship Potempkin. Carriages and dollies have a lot in common, and it would be a sick geek reference to one of the most well known film sequences of all time.

    1) Potemkin
    2) The Carriage
    3) The Odessa

    Geek rant over.

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Battleship_Potemkin

  103. I think you should stray away from the typical names.

    Atlas (From greek mythology, held the world up)

    The Secualar Dolly

    Lead Husky

    The albatross

    The Pillar

    The Royal cushion

    Dolly 12-12-12

  104. 1) Dectus Dolly (based on Latrodectus, which is a genus of spiders, one of which is the black widow, which has the famous red hourglass shape).

    2) Buteo Dolly (Buteo is the genus for hawks in North America, one of which is the red-tailed hawk)

  105. IAmProductions

    Chuck Norris Dolly 🙂 Nah, But I was thinking:

    PNC Cine-Pro Dolly

    PNC Spider Dolly

    PNC Motion Pro

    PNC Extreme Motion Dolly

  106. Wayne

    Correction for my first entry

    Über Flex Dolly; Ü not U 🙂

    Summary

    1) Über Flex Dolly

    2) Cine Flex Dolly

    3) Accel Flex Dolly

    4) Dollzilla

  107. @Eric Reyes I Think that is cool because it also goes in hand with the spider trax. But it would have to either be just The Black Widow because dolly at the end sounds funky. Or maybe a more creative word at the end.

  108. @Kerry Garvey, I think Komodo is actually a great name and it fits well with their current line up in my opinion.

    If I had to take a crack at it, I might say something like, Python Dolly, Hydro Flex Dolly.

    Or maybe Peta/Deca if you wanna keep with the math thing they did with the Pico Dolly.

    Good luck!

  109. Alejandro

    SHARK DOLLY, HUNTER DOLLY

    because these dollies can circle their subjects almost like a shark circles it's prey but it isn't limited to just that one motion, it can be smooth and fast when its moving straight, also this is a bigger dolly. That's why SHARK DOLLY OR PICO HUNTER DOLLY can be good names.

  110. Didn't realize that you guys made the spider trax. So I'd modify mine to Terra Trax. Keeps in line with the spider trax but BIGGER

  111. Emm

    Hope you like the suggestions.

    Good luck with your name quest.

  114. So far I have these 2:

    The DSLideR because it spells out DSLR

    or maybe since it is bigger and for bigger cameras it could be the DSLideR HD or plus or something.

    The second name I came up with is CineTracker or IndieTracker

    Hope that helps,
    Brennan Robideaux

  115. your description reminds me of some kind of robotic lizard crawling around, and the first idea that came to mind was the Komodo dolly sound a bit more fierce than the gecko dolly 😉

    good lucck

  116. Trax Dolly PRO

    I was thinking of Pico Dolly PRO since it would be a direct upgrade to the Pico Flex Dolly, but then again, I thought I might go a step back when you designed Pico from the SpiderTraxDolly design, hence Trax Dolly. But the PRO is there to let people know that it's really a dolly for Professional cameras such as the RED Scarlet, FS100, AF100 and even the C300.
