Olivier Agostini

Broadcast Cinema

5th Term

Why did you choose to attend Art Center?
I had heard about Art Center from reading commercial production trade magazines, and called Department Chair Bob Peterson to ask him a few basic questions. We ended up talking on the phone for three hours. By the end of the call, I was even more excited to apply to join the Broadcast Cinema program.

In what ways has Art Center helped you grow as an artist?
One of the biggest benefits of being at Art Center is the almost subliminal influence of the other disciplines finding its way into my own work.

What is the most valuable lesson you have learned at Art Center?
That talent is ageless.

Where do you find inspiration?
Everywhere. White walls, license plates, the ocean, my friends and family, my dog, photographs, music, travel—and at times at the bottom of a margarita glass.

What do you hope to accomplish through your work?
I want to create thought-provoking entertainment.

What has been your favorite class or project?
Writing. I love the idea of creating an entirely new universe from scratch and being able to change every single detail, from the color of a lamp to the climax of a screenplay.

Have you found any faculty members particularly inspirational or thought provoking?
Bob Peterson is the most honest, knowledgeable and experienced person at Art Center. More importantly, it takes only a couple minutes of talking to him to realize that he is utterly genuine. He only has his students' best interests in mind, and sometimes it's hard to find that within teachers who are also industry professionals. Brad Saunders is by far the most underrated instructor out there. On paper he's a writing teacher, but if you dare to delve further into the psyche of his mind, intention and reason, he will lead you to places you never knew existed.
