Alexander Mechlin and Andrea Fischetti
ReelPaws began in 2012, founded by the Chicago-based husband and wife team, Alexander Mechlin and Andrea Fischetti.
ReelPaws is a digital marketing agency that specializes in filming companion animals. We combine photography, videography, and animation skills, digital marketing knowledge, and experience working with live domestic animals. In addition to our in-house services, we also are a partner for producers around the U.S. to cast animal talent and connect with pet influencers, bloggers, and celebrities for commercial projects. 

Our work and talent have graced the big screen, the small screen, printed ads and magazines, live events, and more. We often partner with clients to propose custom marketing solutions for our clients and integrated experiential opportunities as well.
We love what we do each day and want to make your experience with us a great one!​​



Our pioneering video marketing campaigns have earned us attention from some of the largest and most innovative names in the industry. We have expertise not only in filming animals but also in understanding our clients' needs and helping design projects which allow them to reach their marketing and artistic goals.


Although much of our work involves animals, we also have overlapping experience in the fields of:

  • Pet Industry

  • Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, & Medical Devices

  • Food & Beverage

  • Consumer Products

  • Emerging Products & Technologies


At ReelPaws, we create work that exceeds expectations. You'll find our team is attentive to your needs, organized, responsive, and delivers on time and on budget. It all goes back to our simple philosophy of creating great work by utilizing the latest technology and data available. Although ReelPaws has grown over the years, there is one thing which has remained the same: good old fashioned customer service. We are in it for the long haul and want your business beyond the current project.


Our goal is to form a long term partnership that continues to push, inspire, and produce results. Our top creatives are actively involved and leading every phase of work development for our clients. That's value and work you can trust.



ReelPaws serves clients in the pet product, veterinary, feed, agricultural, hospitality, and education industries, located both domestically and internationally.

Our capabilities include studio-based filming and field work, based on project demands. We utilize the latest in video technology, including 4K filming, animation, aerial work, 3D, and virtual reality. Our team can advise clients both on video marketing strategy and how to market to pet owners.

With a culture of midwest hospitality and experience working with live animals, we bring the best to our clients ~ talented creative professionals, the latest tools and technology, and a winning strategic approach to ensure every project is a success.
