After studying film and animation at Living Arts College over 20 years ago, Chastain worked on many Hollywood feature films doing visual effect and animation work. Pierre has visual effects and animation credits for such well known movies as: “Alice in Wonderland”, “Beowulf”, “Monster House”, “Stealth”, “The Polar Express” and “Mummy 3”.


“The greatest thing about my 12 year career…mainly at Digital Domain and Sony Pictures Imageworks has been the people that I have met and worked with. I have worked with Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and my favorite, Tim Burton… One of the benefits of going to Living Arts College was the high quality of the instructors. I personally wanted to become a technical director. I had many technical questions. The instructors were able to give me specific instruction for the techniques I wanted to learn.” – Pierre Chastain.


Now, Chastain is a successful entrepreneur, industrial designer and athlete. Chastain turned his love for extreme sport bicycling and industrial design and founded Blaze Bicycles in Moab, UT. Blaze Bicycles, Inc. designs and builds custom steel and titanium bicycle frames. You can check out Pierre and Blaze at


Chastain enjoys bicycling whenever possible, but also enjoys the lifestyle his career and business affords… Recently returning from an “adventure” trip to Moscow, Russia!


Living Arts wishes you continued success Pierre!
