Egg Films’ New Year’s resolution was to avoid any one-night stands in 2016 (with the possible exception of their Loeries party). So far, so good, with three campaigns already flighting this year, after second, third and fifth dates respectively with repeat clients Careers24, Standard Bank and Wimpy.
Slim has now directed eight Standard Bank ads in four years for TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris; Dani Hynes has helmed six Wimpy ads for FCB in three years; and Terence Neale has crafted five Careers24 spots in a year for Ogilvy Cape Town.
“Building a reel is one thing but building trust and relationships that last is another,” says Colin Howard, Egg Films’ managing director and executive producer. “Getting asked out again and again is a good sign our directors are marriage material.”

ABOUT EGG FILMS
Egg Films started in 1998 as a two man operation based in Cape Town. Through a philosophy of creating innovative and conceptually-driven work, the South African production company built a reputation for producing award-winning commercials.
Egg rapidly established itself as a leading production company in South Africa, picking up a slew of local and international accolades along the way. Egg is a regular inclusion in the Gunn Report’s ‘Most Awarded Production Companies of the World’ feature.
With offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town, Egg represents a strong roster of local and foreign-based directors. Egg has expanded beyond advertising, exploring documentaries and music videos, as well as developing feature films.
Today, Egg has cemented a reputation for outstanding work, with a hands-on service department that extends Egg’s core principles of innovative, creative work to a wide range of visiting international production companies, shooting in Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands.
