Nikolaev’s school projects, whose non-conformity and liberal views earned him conditional exclusion at that time, were awarded the very first Maxim Prize (award for the best student work) in the faculty’s history. After graduation he went to France where he spent nearly nine years. Initially, he earned his living as an ice-cream vendor, billposter, house painter and babysitter. Later he directed educational programs and worked as a lecturer at the private ESRA Film School (1988-1992). Since 1992 he has lived in Prague. As an Assistant Director, he worked on French films which were shot in the Czech Republic.
