Busy Slate of Projects at Egg Post Production
28 Oct 2009 :
Having edited several series currently being broadcast such as Bang Bang Teo’s ‘Karl Spain Wants to Rock’ series, Animo’s six part series ‘Baz’s Culture Clash’ and the second series of Mint Productions’ ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’, the Egg Post Production team have had a busy autumn and are looking forward to an equally hectic winter.

Karen O’Mahony, Assistant Manager at Egg, tells IFTN how the post house has also carried out the online editing for Loosehorse Productions’ ‘Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award’ programmes which broadcast recently on RTÉ One.

Working closely with Jam Media, Egg have also recently finished the post production on the 13th and final episode of CBBC’s new ‘Roy’. The series mixes animation and live action and was filmed on XDCAM and then passed through to Egg for editing in a tapeless format. ‘Roy’ recently featured in the "Top Ten" programmes list on CBBC.

One of Egg’s longest running projects is Parallel Films’ ‘The Clinic’ - which the company has now posted several times. ‘The Clinic’, now in its seventh series, was shot on the RED One camera for the first time this year which has helped the editing process at Egg immensely: “Red was a massive step forward,” says O’Mahony. “Once you get a good workflow going it is great to work with. Nowadays it is such that there is technology being introduced all the time to speed up the workflow, such as RED One which has been used for a lot of short films and ‘The Clinic’, but it’s starting to become quite a frequently used format. Definitely, it will be more widely used in the next couple of months.”

Directors of ‘The Clinic’ Janet Traynor, Charlie McCarthy, Declan Eames and Lisa Mulcahy worked alongside Egg editors Gary Shortall, Gareth Young and Guy Montgomery and series regular Grainne Gavigan in Egg’s editing suites. Finishing for the series was done in high definition by Egg colourist Orla O’Brien and online editor Dominic Lord.

Since the start of the recession, Egg, like everyone, has felt the winds of change but the company appears to be faring well in the downturn. “I don’t think we’ve felt it as badly as other post houses,” says O’Mahony. “Obviously everyone’s feeling it but I don’t think we have it as bad as others. People go to places where they know they’re going to get a good outcome so I think it’s completely down to the quality of work that we produce.”

In illustration of this, Karen points out the success of several projects that Egg edited this year such as Tony Donoghue’s ‘A Film from my Parish: 6 Farms’, which received a screening at the Sundance Film Festival; Jason Butler’s ‘Tufty’, which led to his winning a ‘Best New Irish Director’ award at the Kinsale Shark Awards; and Liam Gavin’s 13 minute short, ‘Sunshower’, which was selected for competition in the 2009 Raindance Film Festival.

Egg’s editing of Wildfire Film’s new comedy series for TG4, ‘Anseo’, is at an offline stage and the team are currently working on Darren Bolger's 'Alibi' and Tyrone Prouctions’ ‘Band of Brothers’. Egg’s Guy Montgomery is currently editing Animo’s new series ‘Baz’s Extreme Worlds’ directed by Barry Egan which is to air in early 2010.
