"American Hero" by Ariel

Directed, shot and edited by Matt Odom

As is the case with most artists who are just launching careers, we needed a low budget concept that would do justice to the song's mainstream appeal and production value.  We shot this in the California desert over a 12 hour period, fought off gale force winds, moved a piano around a lake bed in 100 degree heat, all the while requiring Ariel to wear a long gown!  As they say, fashion hurts! :)
