My name is Ariel Costa. I'm a director based in Los Angeles, CA.
In the last 12 years of experience, I've had the chance to meet amazing people and collaborate with equally great amazing studios. I’m  proud to say that I also had the opportunity to direct great projects for great clients. I've worked in the fields of advertising, movies, festivals and music videos, where I was fortunate enough to directly work with great bands such as LED ZEPPELIN, GREEN DAY, LINKIN PARK among great others. 
I've also directed projects for great brands, like Spotify, The New York Times, QZ, Warner Music, Facebook and significant others... And worked in great fields as Music Video, Feature Films, Advertising, Promos, Id's and Prints.
Who's/What's BlinkMyBrain?
BlinkMyBrain could be a single director or a small studio!
I spend part of my professional time as a Director/Animator and other part I spend as a Studio. I adopted this shapeshifting philosophy to better attend my client's needs.
As BlinkMyBrain, I don't care about styles; I care about good taste and good work.
