Chelsea has signed Tribeca Award-winning filmmakers Anna & Ewan (Anna Sandilands and Ewan McNicol) for commercial representation. The duo’s work has screened at festivals worldwide including Sundance, Tribeca, BFI London International Film Festival and SXSW.
Anna & Ewan’s feature-length film Uncertain is a mesmerizing story about a sparsely inhabited town and colorful cast of characters tucked away in an eastern Texas bayou. Uncertain earned Anna & Ewan the Albert Maysles Award for Best New Documentary Director at Tribeca in 2015 and was curated at MoMA and London’s Institute of Contemporary Art. Collectively, Anna & Ewan’s film and commercial work both mine the intrigue and peculiarities of everyday life portraying the truth of real people’s stories in cinematic and beautiful ways. Anna & Ewan’s clients include Airbnb, Google, Apple, Nike, Prudential and Nokia; along the way the filmmakers have gained accolades including a Webby for Best Documentary, a One Show award, a BAFTA nomination, a Royal Television Society award and Cannes Lion.
Prior to joining Chelsea, Anna & Ewan were handled by RSA Films in the ad arena.
Anna & Ewan said they were drawn to the acumen, focus and forward thinking of Chelsea’s team headed by company president Lisa Mehling.
Mehling said of Ama & Ewan, “Their beautiful film juxtaposed with their sensitive, intimate storytelling is standout and truly captivated us.”
