My name is Oleg Bolotov and I am a filmmaker, photographer and artist working in the Greater Boston and Los Angeles area. I didn’t start out as such so here’s a little about me.
I was born in a small town of Semipalatinsk 21, Kazakhstan, which no longer exists, and spent the first half of my life living in Russia and Kazakhstan. I came to America in my teens and pursued a career in finance. I succeeded at getting a stable job that paid well and yet I knew I wasn’t meant for this path. It was while I was living and working Los Angeles that I decided to drop it all and pursue my passion for filmmaking.
I moved to Boston and got my MFA degree in Film Production at Boston University with concentration in Cinematography. It was through filmmaking that I finally was able to find peace knowing that telling stories through visuals is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
Since then, I’ve shot, directed, produced and edited several films and developed a photography portfolio and I’m not slowing down anytime soon. I pride myself in seeing the world through my own unique filter and I am constantly developing my style by shooting films and photographs every chance I get.
