London-based production companies Good Egg and Black Label have announced a "creative merger", with the two companies pooling their production and creative resources while maintaining two separate directors' rosters.
Good Egg, headed by co-MDs Julia Reed and John Hassay, is the UK production home for Arni & Kinski, Lisa Gunning, Tell No One, Sean Metelerkamp, Trish Sie and Roisin Murphy. They have added several young directors to their roster in the past few months, including THUNDERLIPS, Bob Gallagher, Kathryn Ferguson and Lewis Rose.
Black Label (and US-based sister company aWhite Label) was established as the production arm of Europe's leading full-service talent agency Independent Talent Group, to represent some of the world's leading directors for their shortform work. Black Label's roster includes legendary photographer and music video director Anton Corbijn, Asif Kapadia (director of acclaimed feature docs Senna and Amy and the 2016 Burberry Christmas ad), Mathew Vaughan (Kingsman, Kiss Ass), Nico Beyer, Thomas Vinterberg (Festen, The Hunt, Far From The Madding Crowd) and another music video directing legend Tim Pope.
Good Egg have now relocated to the same base as Black Label in the Independent Talent Group headquarters in London.
