Krista Liney is an award-winning CREATIVE LEADER and DIRECTOR, equally at home in the boardroom, as SVP of Brand Creative at A&E Networks and on-set, where she’s directed everything from Vikings promos to Tyga & Justin Bieber’s “Wait a Minute” music video (with over 130 million YouTube views to date).
Over the course of her prolific career at A & E Networks, Krista first served as an Executive Producer for History Channel shows and a Director of Promo’s, earning her an Emmy nod and an NAACP Image Award. Krista’s bold creative vision and unique brand of storytelling soon elevated her to the role of SVP Brand Creative for History Channel, giving her creative oversight for some of the biggest events in television history, from Hatfields & McCoys to Pawn Stars.
Krista’s vast skillset ranging from network creative director, executive producer and director has been informed by her ability to harmonize corporate brand needs with engaging and original storytelling. Her years of experience on set have brought Krista acclaim for both promo projects and music videos, for stars like Tyga, Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd, and (yup) Justin Bieber.
All the while, Krista managed to keep a promise to herself: to stay connected to the craft of cinematic storytelling through hands-on writing and directing. It's the camaraderie and bringing creative visions to life that fuel her fire.
