Alexei Golob Productions


Alexei Golob, is in his early twenties, born and raised in Fonthill, Ontario, but is currently a Toronto resident, studying at the Ontario College of Art and Design. Alexi is a remarkable young entrepreneur. He produces short films and videos, more accurately he is an operator of many aspects of what goes into a film.

Alexei started at the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2007 and his goal was to produce his own work and utilize his skills to generate an income. He began to explore the ways in which people in film and video production were capable of making money and realized the number of opportunities.

Since Alexei has started he learned how to operate cameras inside and out, he taught himself particular techniques and worked to create a network of fellow students that had similar goals and who also shared the desire to learn tricks associated with a high production value.

Form there Alexi entered the realm of 2D and 3D animation and compositing. Alexi explained how crucial these skills are for freelance work, which in the end generates a baseline wage of $25 per hour. Alexi has produced freelance 2D animation for Alvesco, Stop.Now.And.Plan, and assist Mae Productions with their project.

Alexei recognizes that in this business he will constantly be developing new skills and believes the filmmaking industry is in the process of a major overhaul in terms of how work is produced and changes in technology and equipment.

Alexei spoke on the importance of networking and utilizing the web to get his brand out there. I found Alexei’ comment about the branding on the web remarkable and deep, “As all the little beeps and lights get louder and brighter, the necessity to overcome everything else just to be realized in the minds of others becomes much greater as well. You have to lead a hyper-productive lifestyle in order to elevate yourself at all.”

Alexei is an open-minded, creative, fair, well-spoken and fun individual. The best way to experience his work is to check out his website: http://www.alexeigolob.com

I wish that other people in the Niagara Region would talk about him. That is amazing work he is able to do. Everyone can learn that passion and dedication can lead to great things.

I completely agree with Lauren, this is great local talent that should be talked about. I know a guy from Brock that produces music videos and shorts. He's got a documentary being aired on network television later this year as well. It's great to see young talented people making a name for themselves.
