This is during a party that Olivier will met Jean-Baptiste Mondino (music video director and photograph), that his career will change of direction by being proposed to write a short script in order to direct it – and not for painting as he thought at first.
Olivier started to direct short movies – with a first one very poignant and based on his personal story before preparing a first long movie: Exit.
Then he will direct La Sirène Rouge – movie with a choatic development, before going to the upper level with a bigger budget and above all an international movie: Transporter 3.
Because the movie was well received by public, Olivier was then allowed to direct Colombiana, Taken 2 and Taxi Brooklyn (TV Show based on the Taxi movie), all produced by EuropaCorp.
Then his first directing for Netflix : The last Days of American Crime and soon to be released, a documentary about Billy Milligan, modest citizen considered non guilty for his crimes because of his multiple personalities.
