Monday Motivation


Last Wednesday we posted about Quentin Tarantino, and today we have a motivational quote from him.

"When people ask me if I went to film school I tell them, 'No, I went to films'"






It doesn't matter what your background is. If you have the motivation for something, do it.

The Beauty of Film

Working Wednesday: The Beauty of Film

Filmmaking is an Art

Gone are the days of shooting on film, or are they. Now with an industry saturated with digital cinema cameras film has slipped to the sidelines. Discussions of film have divided filmmakers, with many stating that they can't tell the difference between shooting on film and digital, while the other side heavily disputes this.

With quick changing and developing new technologies, shooting on digital allows you to flex your creative muscles more, and make more weird and wonderful shots. Shooting on film can limits this.

Here is the trailer for Tarantino's new film 'Hateful 8' that was shot on 65mm.


Film or digital, its the people that make the picture, but film will always be that little bit more magical to watch, depending on what you're going for!

Here are also some stills our Editor took on the 1980's Yashica FR.

Making Content

Working Wednesday: Making Content 

Making the right content for your business is absolutely paramount. 

Marketeers want to tell captivating tales that entice the audience to want to know more, and thus more about the brand. Especially now that there are so many way of ducking and weaving out of having to be 'subjected' to advertising.

David Messinger explains it perfectly in his article "4 Lessons Hollywood Can Teach Brands About Winning Big Audiences" in AdWeek. He explains that marketeers could learn from Hollywood on producing innovative, mind capturing content. As, arguably, no one does it better than Hollywood

Monday Motivation



"Scorsese once told me, 'The things you do poorly are as much a part of your style as the things you do well.' Which was totally true, and oddly reassuring." — David Fincher

Happy Monday! One of the Top Dogs at Dragon's Egg thought it was a great idea to start the week with this quote from Fincher. So make your failures your own, embrace them, learn from them and get back out there.

Online Distribution

07:26 Dragons Egg 0 Comments

Working Wednesday: Online Distribution

After the release of our music video 'Touch U' our attention is now on online distribution.

There are many ways to maximise your distribution, but first you need to provide amazing content. Content that will inspire and make people actually want to share the video around. You can post your video everywhere, but if your content isn't all that, you will find it hard to get the views and your sharing potential will dramatically decrease.

Once you have settled on the content and shot it, you then need to make use of all your social media sites. A good way to do this is to draw your audience in before the actual release date. Don't just hit your viewers with the video, make them excited to see it. If your audience are excited, again they are more likely to share your video around. A very good way to build the suspense is to set a timer, or a countdown on your homepage.

Once you have succeeded in gathering a mini following, it's time to release the video anywhere and everywhere you can. For example a blog. 

Which leads me onto my last point. For those of you who missed Monday's post, may I please refer you to the video Below. Produced by Dragon's Egg, the official music video 'Touch U'.
