On The Origin Of “All Girls Productions:” “We were there in the conference room, and we were all girls..We kind of liked that name because it had a certain arrogance to it that we felt we needed because we were so brand-new in this game. We really didn’t know how the game worked. Also, we wanted a sense of humor, a little wit. We didn’t want to be just ‘Gigantic Pictures’ or ‘Magnificent Pictures.’ We didn’t want anything abstract. We wanted to let people know who we really were.” (Los Angeles, 1991) Read More
