George V.K.

Senior Producer

Driven by the unpredictable nature of storytelling, George garnered a passion for many aspects of media production including photography, cinematography, graphic and motion design. Having immigrated to the US from Kazakhstan at a young age gave him the perspective and hunger to create impactful content that inspires thought, evokes emotion and drives universal change. When he’s not behind the camera, George spends his time writing this bio and getting lost deep in thought.

When asked: “If you were a piece of filmmaking gear, what would you be?” George said: “C-47

“Assuming time travel is possible… what would 10-years-from-now version of you tell you today?” George said: “Be in the here and now. Be present. Because you can’t change the past, and the future never comes. But right here, right now. That you can control.”

“What is the coolest thing that’s happened to you?” George said: “I competed in a kids team drawing competition on TV in Kazakhstan when I was 7. Our team lost. We still got markers, though!”
