We are a very small film production company that just came together in October. We need to start branding, and we will be using this logo on our website, on our short films and for some business correspondence.
By the Ears is a archaic phrase that describes how dogs fight, by grabbing each others' ears... you know a knockdown, drag out fight. You know, it will "grab you by the ears". We also think of a mother leading two unruly children by the ears and the location of the brain (by the ears), as well as others. We feel the name is dynamic, and the logo should be, too. Just because we see those things doesn't mean you have to!
Some further information: we have written a superhero themed comedy series which we will be producing, we hope it could be our flagship production. So if you have a heroic angle, we welcome that, too.
We tend towards dorky comedic, and then towards darkly comedic. So, feel free to use that, too, though don't go so far that it would make coporate clients uneasy.
