Hi there. I'm George Vlad and I travel the world so I can record its sounds. I have a keen interest in wildlife and conservation and I support numerous organizations in the field. This endeavor takes me to the most diverse of places, often remote and difficult to reach but incredibly beautiful. I've been doing this since 2011 and my list of locations to visit only seems to be getting bigger.

Last year I started filming my adventures so I could share more than just the sound recordings I make. So far I have video content shot in Sweden, Norway, Ethiopia, Gabon and Romania. Others will follow soon.

Between my day job in game audio, my travels and the production of sound effects libraries, I can hardly find the time to edit and produce video content though. This is where you come in. With your support I can keep traveling and shooting video, and once I'm back in the studio I can set some time aside just for video post-production.

So what will you get as a Patreon supporter?
  • you will be notified every time I release a new video and you'll have immediate access to it; I will do field recording adventures, kit reviews, tips and tricks, rants etc.
  • you will receive free sound recordings that I'll only share with my Patreon supporters, all usable commercially
  • I get questions about gear, locations or technique quite often but unfortunately I can't answer them in as much detail as I'd like; I will prioritize questions from patrons though
  • you will get invited to some of the field recording workshops and retreats that I organize (paid separately from the Patreon contributions though)
  • you're welcome to ask me to review a certain piece of kit; I'll do my best to do it if enough folks are interested and it's feasible for me to get it

I have enough material to keep me busy for more than a year. I also have several trips planned for this year and Terabytes of recordings that I can share with you. I guarantee that I'll keep releasing content as long as there is interest and support.
