Alesia Glidewell is a film, branded content and digital series director/showrunner. She has created and directed dozens of original digital series – independently, as well as for Sony Music’s Astronauts Wanted and Studio71.


Alesia is of Japanese-Brazilian descent and spent her formative years in Saudi Arabia, Latin America and across the U.S. After studying Cultural Anthropology at Emory and Audio Production at U. of Washington, she ended up finding her way back to her first love – filmmaking.


She's held practically every position on a film set at some point in time and has worked across commercials, broadcast technology, vfx, video games and reality television. Alesia works in English, Spanish and Italian. Her greatest passions outside of film are travel, the outdoors, aviation and science & tech.
