His application film to USC, Minolta (2015), was chosen as the Best Short Film at the 2016 Chandigarh International Film Festival in India. The submission was by invitation and the only festival it was entered into. At the School of Cinematic Arts, he wrote and directed 3 films, including Luna(r)tic (2016) & Requiem (2016), was cinematographer and editor for Nice Guy (2018), producer & sound designer for Strings Attached (2017) and writer for The Fringes (2018).

The Fringes (2018), produced by the University of Southern California is a futuristic short film, conceived and written by Agni. It was well-received in film festivals across the US. The film deals with the takeover of Social Security responsibilities, by monolithic corporations, while showcasing a society where ‘disconnect’ is the officially approved state of existence. The film addresses the issue of a single black woman, living in normalized isolation and her journey of reintegration into the world of human societal interaction, which has now been relegated to the fringes.

Agni recently conceived and directed the music video for the CID and Anabel Englund single, Use Me Up (2018). A commentary on the environmental and societal consequences of rampant consumerism, the film follows the theme of “Reduce, Reuse & Recycle” and was specially designed to use stock footage and VFX, instead of newly created content, giving it the smallest possible carbon footprint. The design component was an homage to the celebrated anti-consumerist work of visual artist Barbara Kruger.
