Friday Favourites: 28th August 2015

It's that time of the week, the time we share a few of our favourite things!

1) This Camera: Arri Alexa


We just finished shooting on the Arri Alexa for our Fashion Film. It's heavy and a little on the complicated side to work with. However, it has made our Friday Favourites because the quality is something to marvel at. For what we were trying to achieve it was perfect.

2) This Effect: Liquid Nitrogen

For our next production we are using liquid nitrogen to add some more depth to the narrative. Liquid nitrogen is a favourite in not only the film industry but in the theatre too. And for good reason, many use it to portray an ambiguous atmosphere, but you will have to wait to find out how we'll use it! 

3) This track: 1 Bad B*tch by Zebra Katz

(Please note: Strong language in this track)

This track is currently on our 'Motivation' playlist! It has got our team through those creative blocks and pushed them through shooting. We are loving the fashionista sound, and let's face it, Zebra Katz is unique, different and awesome!
Have a great weekend!

Shooting Fashion

Working Wednesday: Shooting Fashion


We have officially wrapped on our fashion shoot in Belarus. It's been a whirlwind, we are ecstatic with the footage and can't wait to finish it up in post-production.

Here is a little shot of what our shooting day was like:


The theatre really bought the production to life, even if at times it was a little on the spooky side - there is something about old buildings in the dark. And the cast and crew were, as always, excellent! We just want to thank everyone who helped make the shoot run as smoothly as possible.

We are currently working on our second music video whilst we are out there, so keep following for further updates!

Monday Motivation

We are all about starting the week in a positive, creative way. After spending the morning working out what this week entails and the dreaded 'To Do' list has been drawn up, I think this quote is quite fitting.

"It always seems impossible until it's done" - Nelson Mandela

Happy Monday and let's get those cameras rolling!

Friday Favourites: 21st August 2015

Friday Favourites


This post is dedicated to some of the things we love and inspired us this week.

1) This Technique: Double Exposure

Double exposure is here to stay! For starters you can see it in True Detective's opening sequence, and it is stimulating our creativeness! If done properly it can be used to portray a variety of things, places and even emotions! We get a lot of briefs from artists who want it featured in their videos. It gives you so much creative freedom, quite frankly we love using it!



2) This Music Video: Pstereo by Emilie Nicholas


Putting the incredible soundtrack aside, we are loving the discrete animation in this video. Too many times you see an overly ambitious production heavy with animation. This can sometimes over power the rest of the picture, and in the case of music videos, the track itself. 
However, the Pstereo video has pulled it off with complete perfection.

3)This Online Magazine: http://filmmakermagazine.com/

Filmmaker magazine has fresh articles and always delivers interesting interviews from industry professionals. Whatever your preference, this magazine will open your mind up to new ideas and new techniques to help give your production that added zest!

Beautiful Belarus

Working Wednesday: Beautiful Belarus


The Dragon's Egg team are lucky enough to be shooting a fashion film in the amazing city of Minsk.

We love it there, we have a fantastic crew who always do such a great job for us! They helped us produce our last music video 'Instincts' by Yashar Gasanov. And made it into the slick, inspiring video you see below!

 

Our next shoot will reveal a tantalising secret in a gorgeous location: The interior of a theatre. There has always been something magical about the theatre, it's a place where you can explore all types of characters, stories and emotions. That's what it's for! But we especially love the beauty of the place. 


The balconies give you an old, regal feel and the colours are so rich it is perfect for what we are trying to portray. Of course we can't give too much away regarding the story, you'll have to stay tuned to find out. But I can promise you, it will leave you with a tingle in your spine and wanting more!

Hello from us!

00:55 Dragons Egg 0 Comments


Good morning Dragonettes!

Welcome to our new blog. Here we will post a few times a week on what we are doing, what we are feeling and what is inspiring us!


A little about us:


Our passion is producing beautiful, outstanding content for our clients (and ourselves!). Each brief we get in we take time over, our creative team shut themselves away, far from distractions to make sure each production is as slick and technically brilliant as the last.


What you can expect from us:


We always like to try new things. We believe that experiencing new things opens our minds up to the world around us and thus helping us to be more creative. So we will regularly keep you informed on all the things that make us tick, and hopefully you may share the inspiration with us.


In the meantime,


Happy Reading!


The Dragon.
