I'm Ariel Costa

Director based in Los Angeles, CA.

What's BlinkMyBrainIt's my creative space. I help studios, production companies, agencies and all sorts of clients to solve creative and visual problems.
I bring ideas to live and make the message to go forward.

I'm not a tool, I'm the attitude. 

I have a large experience in motion graphics and during my journey, I had a blast for having amazing clients such as Marvel Animation,Spotify, Adidas, Warner Music, Focus Films, The New York Times, Facebook among great others.
In the Music Industry, I was lucky enough to direct music videos for the greatest LED ZEPPELIN, GREEN DAY, MASTODON and working closely creating content for LINKING PARK, 30 SECONDS TO MARS, RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS, PANIC AT THE DISCO among great others.

In the film industry, I love working with documentaries and titles. You can see my latest work on the big screen by watching the incredible WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? I'm super proud of this one.

As BlinkMyBrain, I don't care about styles; I care about good taste, fun and being different.
Don't do it for the prizes, but my mom is proud of them.
