Award-winning Creative Collective Wander Joins Chelsea

Creatively-driven bicoastal production and talent management company Chelsea Pictures has signed award-winning creative collective Wander for representation. Wander is a Los Angeles-based cause-marketing creative collective “helping the world’s do-gooders do good.” Wander is comprised of founder Aaron Weber, Eric ReinfeldCryssy Cheung and Phil Towle.

Wander’s “Follow the Frog” campaign for the Rainforest Alliance was awarded a Bronze Lion at Cannes in 2013, and they have created many other highly lauded cause-marketing content and campaigns, ranging from major clients such as LinkedIn and Apple to Oxfam and the Coexist Campaign.

“Allison and I have known Aaron for a long time, and have long admired he and his team’s passion for creating beautifully crafted and deeply moving cause-marketing,” said Chelsea partner Lisa Mehling. “We feel that the time is ripe to introduce Wander to a larger agency and client audience, and feel that their mission is very much in step with the socially conscious work Chelsea produces and believes in.” Wander’s Aaron Weber added, “The opportunity to collaborate with a team as incredible as Chelsea will allow our work to have a larger impact than ever before.”

This is Wander’s first partnership with a major commercial production house. Chelsea, a creatively-driven production and talent management company independently-owned and managed by partners Allison Amon and Lisa Mehling, will represent them for all branded content and commercial opportunities.
