JC Goloubev


Evgueni “JC” Goloubev is an award-winning American filmmaker. Beyond the Obscure represents the first (and hopefully not last!) foray into the realm of book writing. He is the co-founder and current CEO of Frozen Frame Productions, an independent video production company founded in early 2006 in Toronto, Canada as well as the CEO of Icarus, a subsidiary company responsible solely for video editing and color grading work.

He has a substantial amount of international culture experience, moving often from country to country to either study there and/or work. Knowledge gained on those travels has allowed him to analyze and study people in great detail and construct psychological profiles. These details, in addition to real-life experiences, add new nuances to the works.

Music and gaming have always played a huge role in his creative work and influences include Depeche Mode, Before the Dawn, Kino, Smisloviye Galusinatsii, Rammstein, Kamelot etc… Video games with a strong emphasis on storytelling such as Mass Effect, Final Fantasy IV, VI and IX as well as Chrono Trigger are his favorites.

An idealist, realist and a secular humanist philosopher, he hosts the online show Age of Reason that promotes positive Atheism, knowledge and common sense.

When he’s not busy taping the show, writing or editing videos, he is most likely busy studying online courses mostly but not exclusively related to science, i.e. Climate Change, Evolutionary Biology, Astrophysics etc…

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I'm not sure. As a teenager, I was writing songs and poems and then there was a break while I attended university. After uni, I went to film school so I began to write again. I had no idea what to write at first and in the first semester, I did write something pretty generic and not entirely my own stuff. After that though I took charge of our small film gang and since we had access to cameras, lights etc... I just wanted to experiment as much as possible. I ended up writing my own material and refined it as time went on. By the end of film school, I was pretty confident in my writing skills.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I study mostly and/or working on video projects. I'm curious about space, time, psychology, climate change etc... You'll often find me on Coursera or edX. I place the utmost importance on knowledge. I don't believe that anybody can create a proper piece of literature without a considerable amount of knowledge. You need to know what you're talking about or it comes out as forced, fake or just outright false.
