Psyche the Prologue

The comedy satire, a short film now distributed in North America on vod platform. Judson Vaughan guest directed one half of the film. A great comedy satire full of laughs, with an incisive style of mockery and satire about a writer that is trying to get his screenplay produced into a full feature.
He also stars in the film, cast early on before he was onboard as director.

The film was well received and distributed in fall 2014. This is the prologue to the feature.

Pedro - One Minute of Horror

'Pedro' the winning one minute of horror for the Slaughteredbird.com horror film competition.

Rules: to be shot on a mobile phone and no more than one minute in duration.

On the same day, simultaneously the film 'The Boston Maniac' was also shot along side it's little cousin 'Pedro' a kind of full length short, (although still only 5 minutes) incompassing a more rounded feel to the story as not confined by 1 minute running time restriction. A more cinematic version with an albeit different tone.

The Boston Maniac is currently about to start it's Film Festival circuit, so it's not public at present. but if you would like to see it, please do contact us for the viewing pin, thank you.

FILMMAKING AND INSPIRATION

We all start somewhere..

ABOUT US

Dragon Egg Media are a young dynamic independent film production company that write and produce short films, feature films, documentary and television shows, as well as TVC's and promos.

We make Films. Whatever the brief, we create narrative that entertains, whether thirty seconds or two hours long, from conception to post-production.

From a commercial and corporate aspect, wether traditional narrative or not, we will develop the treatment from a client brief, script-it and nurture the whole process through to pre-production, in-production and post-production.

Whilst ascertaining the needs of the brief, we will walk you through the creative journey by identifying your companies profile, what it is specifically we’re trying to convey visually and narratively in relation to the product and subsequently how best to move forward to maximise your interest. In turn, how to best stand out from an ever increasing and changing crowded market place.

We are sensitive to the fact not all budgets are the same and we pride ourselves on delivering a product that not only will meet your expectations but try to exceed them whilst consciously staying within your budget.

Maybe you just need an event filmed and graded? We can do that too.

We have a team of experts from all aspects of production including writing, lighting, cinematography, visual effects, special effects, location-sound, sound design, photography, art design, production design, casting and of course producing and directing. We essentially are all things production based with a high end finish that not only you, but we can also be proud of.
