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 seventy short films, music videos, 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.
