Egg Films appoints Lisa Wides as Head of Communication

Egg Films is thrilled to welcome Lisa Wides (formerly Lisa Jaffee) as their new Head of Communication. She’s no newcomer to the advertising world, bringing over 17 years of experience as an agency TV Producer, most recently serving as the Head of Broadcast at Ogilvy before taking a break to raise kids. Lisa will be a dedicated resource and point of contact for agencies, working closely with agency producers and creatives, serving as the go-to person, and providing agencies with an invaluable resource throughout campaigns.

Colin Howard, Executive Producer at Egg Films, ‘We are thrilled to welcome Lisa to our team,  she brings invaluable expertise that will enhance our relationships with agencies. COVID initiated a more agile and streamlined approach at Egg, resulting in a smaller team. Lisa and I will work closely to bridge any gaps that may arise when our producers are tied up on productions, ensuring that agencies and directors receive dedicated attention during the pitch process. We are confident that Lisa’s unique skill set and industry knowledge will play a pivotal role in propelling our directors to new heights, and I look forward to the successes we will achieve together. Welcome aboard, Lisa!’ Lisa will be working closely with Egg directors Lebogang Rasethaba, Imraan Christian, Kyle Lewis and Zwelethu Radebe.

The many creatives who have worked with Lisa before will know that for her, the work is everything. For over 17 years as a TV Producer in agencies like Ogilvy, Net#work, Leo Burnett, and Hunt Lascaris, good work has always been what Lisa fought for. Lisa says, ‘Having had a long history with Egg as Head of Broadcast and Agency producer, it’s a very happy fit for me. They were one of the production companies that I’ve worked with most often. For me, it’s always been about getting behind great work and great directors, and Egg brings a group of directors who are all individually unique and fresh. Egg has a reputation for developing the careers of our country’s top directing talent, producing some of the most well-crafted and awarded work, and it’s really exciting to now be part of this.’

Egg Films is owned and managed by partners Zwelethu Radebe, Lebogang Rasethaba and Colin Howard. A level 2 contributor to B-BBEE, with offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
