We had the good fortune of connecting with Oleg Bolotov and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Oleg, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My business was started by filmmakers and friends that wanted to keep making movies/work together and not rely on crowdfunding for our projects. We wanted to keep making unique and exciting work that was OURS and no one else’s.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
We are a production company based in Boston, MA. We made the company to stay stronger and stay working. It’s been nothing but challanges and obstacles along the way. We still managed to succeed due to our dedication, hard work and most imporantly, amazing people helping us along the way. We are currently moving to our THIRD studio. The challenges present by COVID19 have had a pretty substantial effect on our operations. Another obstacle. And yet, we cannot be more excited for the future. Our new studio is everything wa wanted and we can focus on video/photo work.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Boston has about 1 million things to do and see. We have one of the most diverse cities and one of the most beautiful as well.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The people that have helped us and those that continue to help along the way. We’re a small business and wouldn’t be alive without the help of people around us.
