First of all ZigZag was taken, but we prefer ZigZagZig anyway. ZigZagZig is the brainchild of M.K. Ceesay, a London based director/producer, who has been obsessed with film and video production for around 11 years. M.K. set up ZigZagZig as a brand under which to create a diverse array of work along with his personal network of hand picked talent which includes D.O.Ps, camera operators, editors, art directors and more. We have our finger on the pulse of the latest technology, tools and techniques but most importantly – we have ideas to help you stand out if that’s what you need.
We believe that talent transcends boxes, simply tell us what you need and we’ll have ideas and suggestions for you. One thing is for sure -your project will be in safe hands. We often take projects from concept to final cut. However we have also worked with clients on their own ideas and helped bring them to life. Our diverse portfolio includes music videos, fashion films, interview videography, event videography, youtube commercials and niche video content such as art films and process videos. We can do highly conceptual, we can do no frills, but we always do it well.
Music Video Production
We love music videos, they really allow you to create with freedom and colour outside the lines. We pride ourselves in creating original concepts, and working closely with the Artist to make sure we hit the right note for their particular style.
Brand Video Production
It’s no secret that video content is essential to every brand. Wether it’s event videography, promotional videos, interview videos or behind the scenes videography you can leave it in our professional hands.

"Superwoman" Music VideoThis music video features a woman who feels like she’s always giving with a smile but never gets any acknowledgement or appreciation. In the song she's airing her frustration to her loved ones. How do we express that in an interesting and unique way with the music video? A beautifully prepared dinner of-course, but within this dinner her feelings are expressed but is she brave enough to actually go through with showing her loved ones how she feels in such a mean and disgusting way? Maybe not.
"This Breeze" Music VideoA music video for Swedish duo Flora & Cash, produced in Hampstead heath London. This is inspired by old fairy tales, a girl walking into the woods with hesitation - where reality and fantasy are intertwined. A surrealistic narrative music video with an ending which is open to interpretation. All the lighting is natural, proving that nature can produce the best light, it’s all about how you use it.
"I Need To Leave" Music Video/Art FilmA music video/art film which expresses the concept of anxiety brought about by an unknown force toying with you, your needs and desires. This was a collaboration between a performance artist and musician which we produced at the post-production stage.
Diesel A/W Collection 2014 - BHS VideoBehind the scenes videography for a sponsored blog post for fashion label Diesel. The short video clip was used as part of a campaign for their autumn/winter collection in 2014. It appeared on all social media platforms for both the blogger and the brand.
Snupps App - Youtube ADSnupps helps you organise, discover and share your stuff. We were approached to create a humorous and to the point advert for youtube. In this AD we see a couple literally taking their stuff everywhere and getting attention from the public, until they discover the app through a mysterious stranger.
"Ashiko!" Music VideoHere we have a narrative dance music video for Italian electronic music producer Clap Clap. The artist was inspired by african music for this project and the concept behind the music video was inspired by the artwork of the music project but we created an original narrative, with dancers and costuming to go with that. Two male warriors are lusting after the female character who is being summonsed and she just exudes beauty - the two warriors didn't count on her also being a powerful force who will fight back.
"Deal With The Devil" Music VideoSinger-songwriter Genna Marabese approached us to create a simple performance video but with a unique concept which fits her style. In this case director M.K. Ceesay offered the idea of using broken mirrors to create an effect which adds to the darkness and despair expressed on the track. She performs in front of the mirrors and as her performance intensifies the more cracks appear in the mirrors.
"After Birth" Art FilmShot at golden hour on Brighton beach on a freezing cold winter’s day. This was made to be a music video which I was then allowed to turn into an art film which represents the uncertainty of birth, falling backwards into the unknown with a questionable identity. This will be exhibited in Berlin this summer, with more exhibitions to come soon after.
Shara Hayz - Fashion FilmShara Hayz is a London based fashion designer, this lo-fi fashion film was for her stage wear collection. This clip was created to be played on the screens at Berlin alternative fashion week, as her models took to the catwalk.
"We Are Animal" Music VideoThis music video was shot in a 500 year old cottage in the countryside of Bedford. The track is about the self destructive side within a person, the music video presents that self destruction as a person who looks just like you but doesn’t want what’s best for you, instead wants to ruin everything you do – and the solution in this music video is to mummify that part of you and burry her.
Stooki - Fashion Event VideographyStooki is a London based fashion label and this was the launch event for their Obscura collection. The event was held at Redbull studios and we were tasked with doing the videography and edit a slightly edgy and not too polished video of the event.
Bella McKendree - Session VideoThis music video was shot during a recording session for singer-songwriter Bella McKendree – she required videography for the session to be done in a neat but creative way and edited to the finished track.
Lilou Makenna - 2016 Collection IntroThis is a short and snappy catwalk video to introduce the new collection for fashion brand Lilou Mackenna. We created the catwalk setting in a videography studio in London and made sure all the outfits and bags were on show for us to capture and edit into an impactful clip for her website.
Valentina D'Fillipo - Making Of A MapRainham Hall opened to the public in October 2015 following a major conservation and interpretation project. Valentina was commissioned by the National Trust to create two large-scale maps and a board game, as part of the first public exhibition of the hall. We were commissioned to create a video to highlight the concepts and processes involved in Valentina’s work.
