About Egg Films

Who We Are

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.
