Transported Consultation Artist #04 - NU-URBAN GARDENERS
In our fourth film of the series for Transported we spent a wonderful afternoon at Freiston Shore RSPB Nature Reserve with the Nu-Urban Gardeners to discuss their Transported Project - Chugga Nugging and to play some tunes on the sea wall and meet people.
The Nu-Urban Gardeners are the live performance art duo that is Simon Withers & Chris Lewis-Jones also provide insight into their thoughts on what artist-led consultation is - the strand of commissioned work that their project fell within for the the exciting Transported Project.
The third film in the series for Transported features another Egg Director, Neil Egg with his animated sketchbook project Migration. Here Neil discusses his thoughts on Artist-Led Consultation and also the Migration Animation project.
In the second of our films for profiling Transported consultation events we feature Katie Smith’s “Moveable Museum of Found Objects” and capture both Katie’s and her co-pilot for the caravan, i mean museum, Dave Briggs’ thoughts on artist-led consultation.

Transported Consultation Artist #01 - STEVEN HATTON
Transported is an exciting artist led community arts project that is taking place in Boston & South Holland over the next few years. We have been lucky enough to be part of this project from the very beginning and are currently creating short films about some of the art that has been going on as part of the project thus far.
Funnily enough we were part of the initial artist-led consultation phase and thus have been asked to make films about our own projects amongst others.
This film features Electric Egg director Steven Hatton discussing his thoughts on Artist-Led Consultation and also his work for Transported, “The Crowland Abbey Project” a digital stained glass window for the ruined abbey window of Crowland Abbey in South Lincolnshire.
ULRIC CROSS PASSES AWAY Unfortunately we have lost another magnificent gentleman whom we were privileged to spend time with for the documentary “Into The Wind” - Ulric who hailed from Trinidad flew with RAF Bomber Command during the Second World War and made a significant contribution to our film.
Ulric was the most decorated West Indian squadron leader and had an active public life post war being both Trinidadian High Commissioner to the UK and also an Appeal Court Judge in Trinidad.
Ulric is also the subject of a feature film being produced in his native Trinidad called “Hero” that follows Ulric’s wartime exploits.

Here are some more super duper gifs from the Crystallography project for The Royal Institution. We especially like the chap spinning around some molecules. The animation is oh so very nearly complete and we cannot wait to show it to you.
Last night we were shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of Wing Commander Ken Wallis MBE. Ken was an amazing gentleman, inventor, aviator and all round inspiration. To this end and as a tribute to the man himself our short film on Ken is now available online for all to view.
Working with Ken for “Into The Wind” remains one of the best filming experiences we have had at Electric Egg and Ken, like many of the fantastic people we met whilst making the documentary who are no longer with us will be greatly missed by us and many more.
