Niko Vilaivongs, a Los Angeles based Production Designer and member of the Art Directors Guild, has a degree in Art and a background in Theatre Set Design. She decided to follow her passion for movies, and was accepted to USC School of Cinematic Arts, but serendipitously met Alfred Hitchcock’s Art Director, Robert Boyle, someone who’s work she admired. Mr. Boyle, or Bobby as he liked to be called, encouraged her to continue to develop her craft on set. In Bobby's words, “Kid, why are you going back to school, you got to get to work!" Niko followed Bobby's advice and since then has designed and art directed numerous feature films, television shows, music videos and commercials.
