(October 25, 2013) We are excited to share “Maria & The Dinosaur” - a commercial for the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
The spot, for broadcast and online, connects to the institution’s mission to discover, interpret and disseminate knowledge about human cultures, the natural world and the universe. Using whimsy and humor the piece speaks to the wonder of exploration and education.

The project was developed by award-winning agency WiT Media, which selected Wander as creative partner for the piece based on Wander’s TED-awarded work for Follow The Frog. According to WiT Media Founder and President Clint White, the goal was to present the benefit of experiencing the American Museum of Natural History with a contemporary voice and a narrative that entertained. For Wander, which worked closely with WiT and AMNH to develop the tonality and story, the project provided the unique and enviable position of shooting in the beautiful, historic NYC museum.
Both WiT and Wander are incredibly proud of the results they produced for AMNH. Please let me know if you’d like additional information on the project or a link to downloadable media. Full credits are listed below.
