Production is well underway on a new and exciting piece of experimental moving-image work. The work is being created for the craft exhibition “Beauty is the First Test” curated by Liz Cooper and will soon be exhibited at the National Centre for Craft and Design (NCCD) in Sleaford Lincolnshire.
Electric Egg are delighted to announce not only a new release on DVD but also the beginning of a new documentary project and for this we need your help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this latest news from Electric Egg. We have news of two exciting new films. One complete and released on DVD in time for Christmas and the other a new project that we are raising production funds for through the sale of the DVD.
LSM graduate Lucy Madge has been named as one of the 30 brightest young UK radio talents, in the Radio Academy 30 under 30 list.
“The prestigious list, chosen from more than 200 applicants with a wide range of skills by a panel of independent judges, highlights the huge amount of young talent within the UK radio industry.
The final 30 made the list not just by doing their day job brilliantly, but by going the extra mile and achieving exceptional results during the past 12 months. The list recognises them as superb ambassadors for the radio industry as a whole.”
Electric Egg’s feature documentary Into the Wind will make its Lincoln premiere at a special screening on Friday 1st June at 7.30pm at the Lincoln Drill Hall. The film will be preceded by director Steven Hatton’s new award-winning short Heilig. The event offers the opportunity to see both films on the big screen!

“What Does Otto See?” Directed by Neil Baker (Electric Egg) has won Best UK Animated Short at the Cornwall International Film Festival.
Otto, a decrepit busking hobo, bashes out a jaunty tune on his toy piano to amuse passers by and hopefully earn him the odd coin. But on a pavement full of street maestros why would anyone spare a penny for old Otto?
