Ariel Vida is an LA-based director and production designer from the small town of Twin Lake, Michigan. A writer/director of the surreal and fantastical, she has also designed and art directed over a hundred short films, music videos, commercials, and feature films in Los Angeles.

Most at home shooting strange desert vistas and stylized action, Ariel is drawn to telling both sprawling, Tolkien-esque tales as well as wild adventures told in the breadth of a single song. Her music video directorial debut - Lord Huron's The World Ender - is currently in its festival run, recently winning Best Music Video at the Orlando Film Festival.
