The Designer - A no-budget Action DSLR Film

Recommended Posts






My name is George Skoumas Papanikolaou and I am a 25 years old director.


I just made my first movie called "The Designer", a no budget film using only a Canon 550D and a kit lense 18-135 EFS and also a goPro Camera. It's an action short film with car races and a dramatic impact on the end of the film.


No professional or amateur actors. Just friends.

No script ever written. All in my head.

Direction/Editing/Sound Editing/Trailer VoiceOver/Visual Effects all by one person.


The music was written by a friend and it's also a home production using orchestral music.

It took us a lot of time and a lot of struggle to manage this final result.

The movie was started as a small trailer and ended as a middle length 32 minute film.

We also won two awards in the Accolade Competition in California.


This is my first post in this forum and I am very excited to be here with people that we all share our same passion.

Right now I want to start new projects and ideas.

I have 2 scripts in my mind and looking for people to cooperate with and shoot something the way it should be.

Let's say that this movie was my personal university in filmmaking. It showed me the ways. I now start to walk them. Please come with me.



This is the movie trailer:
