Dear Art Producer, Arpi Agdere and The New Normal
On this episode of Dear Art Producer, Heather is joined by Arpi Agdere, Producer at Wieden + Kennedy. Originally from Istanbul Turkey, Arpi worked for 7 years as an in-house art producer at Vans in Los Angeles and has experience working on both sides of the camera as well as within production companies and creative studios. She has a BFA from Art Center College of Design and is deeply rooted in fine art. She also loves giving back to the art community by doing portfolio reviews and providing mentorships for creatives at every age.
In their conversation, Heather and Arpi explore the joys and the challenges of being an Art Producer in this day and age and how COVID protocols are simply part of production now.
“Time is of the essence. We have to do everything really quickly. I feel like that's the biggest thing. It's like, okay, let's do this as quickly as we can, but let's make sure that everything aligns creatively and production-wise and everyone is seeing eye to eye.” -Arpi Agdere
