Anna Sandilands & Ewan McNicol are an American and English filmmaking duo. Anna & Ewan are driven by a curiosity to reveal the unnoticed in everyday life. While their work fits some of the traditions of documentary verité filmmaking, one of their aims is to find a deeper understanding and empathy by visually immersing in character and story in ways more often associated with cinematic fictional filmmaking. Anna & Ewan’s work has been curated and screened at MOMA in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London and the National Portrait Gallery in London, as well as film festivals including Sundance, Tribeca, BFI London International Film Festival and SXSW.
In 2015, Anna & Ewan were awarded the Albert Maysles Documentary Director Award at Tribeca for their documentary feature UNCERTAIN. The film received critical acclaim from The New York Times, Variety & The Guardian. Anna & Ewan's branded clients include: Airbnb, Apple, Google, Michelin, Nike, Nokia, Burt’s Bee’s and Walgreens, with a number of national and international campaigns. In collaborating with clients on commercial projects, Anna & Ewan apply the same rigorous attention to the real and unique elements of people’s stories that make them authentic. Anna & Ewan are based in Portland, Oregon.
