Ariel Vromen | Maestro of Stories & Beats

This week on Story & Craft, I sit down with movie director, Ariel Vromen.  Ariel is an intriguing guy with a great story.  He has directed movies such as Criminal, The Iceman and The Angel.  He has directed some of Hollywood’s biggest names, such as Kevin Costner, Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, Chris Evans, Wynona Ryder and Gary Oldman.  Beyond his work as a director, he has also established a name for himself as a DJ, and regularly plays for audiences around the world.  We cover everything, from his time as a soldier in the Israeli Defense Forces, to the time he took Kevin Costner to an techno concert, to his thoughts on the craft of directing movies, and how movie making will evolve in the coming years.  It’s a great chat with a creative and cool guy with an intriguing story to tell.
