The Sacred Egg

Alex Mavor and Ed Kaye are directors who - together - comprise a duo called The Sacred Egg. A team since 2007, they started out on low-budget music videos and by 2013 were working with names such as Arcade Fire.

In 2017 their break in the world of TVCs came when they made Finish 'Combinations' and Mailchimp 'Did You Mean Mailchimp' - the latter going on to win a Grand Prix at Cannes. Their arresting visuals and readiness to take on challenges makes them a very exciting pair to collaborate with.

"Buy Back"
While flat-pack furniture has previously been seen as almost disposable - something of mediocre quality that's easy to replace - IKEA encourage customers to be more eco-friendly with their furnishing choices this Black Friday. The retailer is introducing a scheme to buy back its previously-loved products and give them a new lease of life, with this amiable film focusing on the now-ubiquitous Billy bookcase.
