I'm Karni Arieli. One half of directing duo karni & Saul. Based in the UK.

I love fantasy, quirky crops, funny dark situations, I'm a shell addict and a fan of dance and wild nature. 

I love creating very visual narrative pieces, fashion dance and art films, short and punchy things.

Oh and I'm female too... with a passion for story telling, for and by woman.

Originally a photographer, I've been making music videos commercials and short films for over ten years... and was BAFTA nominated for our (karni & sauls) first short film "Turning".

we have also made films for Random Acts and Nowness platform and consenses, and been part of Berlinale talent campus.

Do drop me a line and say hi, i promise i won't bite...yet....
