Like an Egg produces films

We do it for businesses and communities. We do it so well we even make films for ourselves. And we enjoy it so much we also show other people how to make films.

That's what we do. Simple as that.

We have a studio in Pontypridd, South Wales. Our equipment is state-of-the-art and we don't mind saying so.

We are serious about what we do. We aim to be intelligent with your audience, creative with your message and to demonstrate integrity with your budget.

We love what we do.

Stay – Lewis Watson Music Video

April 23rd, 2014

If only I could dream we could start again…….

Like an Egg are proud to reveal our latest production, the music video for the Lewis Watson track ‘Stay’. The single is the first from his debut album ‘The Morning’ which is released in June. Once again we collaborated with director Craig Roberts, following the successful Los Campesinos! video we shot together last Autumn.

This video takes place in a ghoulish cemetery, where the dreams of a lonely girl come true as she falls in love with the dead movie star from her favorite films. It’s a magically surreal yet moving love story.

The shoot took place on an exhausting January evening in the magnificent Cathays Cemetery. Astonishingly the torrential wind and rain subsided, allowing us a brief window of clear weather to film the video. The cemetery was an extraordinary location that art director Carly Wattley transformed into a breathtaking Tim Burtonesque playground. The costume and make-up team of Julie Fox and Sarah-Jane Perez soon filled it with dozens of deceased spirits who lurked in the eerie darkness.

It was a marathon shift for the Like an Egg crew, but we’re overjoyed with the beautiful footage DoP Luke Jacobs managed to capture. We’re immensely pleased with the finished product, which we edited and put together in a couple of demanding days.

Special thanks to the drama students from Coleg Morgannwg, Cathays Cemetery and all who helped make this shoot a success. You can check out some examples of our other music promos by clicking here. Images by Tom Sparey.

Giffgaff – We’re All the Boss Advert

April 16th, 2014

For our latest project we were asked to head the production duties in south Wales for an advert with award winning director Josh Cole for the mobile phone network, giffgaff. We also provided crew and equipment for the shoots which took place all over the UK. The advert is going to be broadcast on television and used online in a viral campaign. Our task was to find alternative young people in South Wales who represented living life in their own unique way in their own worlds, without bosses. They are in charge. They are the boss.

We hunted down an array of exciting and entertaining young people who met the brief. It varied from a group of modified motor enthusiasts to a boisterous, energetic band from Cardiff and a male pole dancer from Bargoed. The locations differed, one day we were filming on the picturesque west coast of Wales, the next we were in a Cardiff University lecture hall filming a marathon video gaming session.

It was imperative that Dop Luke Jacobs captured the groups acting naturally in their usual habitat without being influenced or told what to do by others. We accurately portrayed the freedom and enjoyment that making their own decisions gave them. This reflects the flexibility and control that giffgaff allows it’s customers.

Working with such diverse and interesting characters each day was an unforgettable experience. We profited from using such a talented and imaginative crew. We’re especially pleased with what we produced; we look forward to shooting such varied subjects in the future. This was yet another successful shoot where we showcased the abundance of talent that south Wales has to offer, we’re making our local area an exciting destination for media production in the UK.
