Shot Designer is a ground-breaking tool for Directors and DPs that creates Animated Camera Diagrams, with integrated Shot List, Storyboards, Professional Director's Viewfinder, and Sync & Team Sharing via Dropbox.


"A great App for Directors and DP's alike! Lightning fast shot designs. Don't be without it on the set." -- John Badham, Director, Saturday Night Fever, WarGames

"Excellent tool for planning my scenes fast!" -- Clint Reagan, Previz Supervisor, Hunger Games, Prometheus, Knight & Day, GI Joe


• CAMERA DIAGRAM - Shot Designer dramatically speeds up the Director's process of making camera diagrams. Create full-blown diagrams in seconds. The software does most of the work.
• ANIMATION - Animate your characters and cameras to move around your diagram in real-time. Previsualize the rhythm of a scene by seeing it play out.
• SHOT LIST - The integrated Shot List is tied into the diagram and writes itself while you work. Edit shots intuitively in the diagram, not in a confusing spreadsheet.
• DIRECTOR'S VIEWFINDER / STORYBOARDS - Bring in lens-accurate camera angles via the integrated Director's Viewfinder or Storyboard Import.
• MAC/PC DESKTOP VERSION - An identical Mac/PC Desktop Version is included with the Pro Version (in-app upgrade).
• SYNC & TEAM SHARING VIA DROPBOX - Sync your scenes across all your devices. Share scene folders with teams. Control who owns which scene. (Pro Feature)

Shot Designer was developed by Per Holmes, the creator of the renowned Hollywood Camera Work training, and has been beta-tested on major TV and Film productions.

Shot Designer is based on the realization that neither Camera Diagrams, Shot Lists, or Storyboards by themselves give you a satisfying understanding of camera-blocking -- you have to use them *together*.

Shot Designer is FAST. The app knows how Directing works and automatically does most of the work for you. Cameras rearrange themselves when you move characters. Animate characters and cameras with simple Walk To and Track To commands. Create sophisticated tracking shots with multiple marks. Shot Designer is fast enough that you can rearrange the diagram with actors waiting.


• Integrated Set Designer for building floor plans.
• Integrated Lighting Designer for DPs, with lighting symbols provided by Ari Golan of Atomic Imaging Studios Chicago.
• Import production drawings as backgrounds and block on top of them.
• Factory Templates of pre-made camera setups for any situation.
• Make your own templates as starting points for new scenes.
• Large and growing prop/furniture library. Email us requests, we'll build them.
• Scene Freeze: Experiment easily by taking snapshots you can return to (Pro).
• PDF/JPG/Excel export and emailing of Camera Diagrams and Shot Lists (Pro).
• Unlimited Folder Structure for organizing scenes (Pro).

The Free Version of Shot Designer is full-featured except for Save and Export. Your current scene is always saved, and you can be fully productive working on one scene at a time. The Pro Version (in-app upgrade) adds File Management, identical Mac/PC Desktop Version, PDF/JPG/Excel Export, Scene Freeze and more.


* To the user accusing Shot Designer of somehow being spyware, the camera permission is used for the Director's Viewfinder. Please view the tutorial.

* Force-close comment: We launched 1.0 two days before your comment and have already resolved these issues. It's inevitable some new bugs will be found once you release to the public.

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

User's Reivew

4 ★Nice software
5 ★Perfect app for what I was looking for. I bought the full version and it was money well spent. My only concern was that if you have a lot of shots in your scene with a lot of motion with actors and cameras then the PDF that gets emailed to you can be complicated to look at. Is there a way to have the diagram for each individual shot emailed? I've been taking screen shots of each number in the timeline.
4 ★I'll give this 5 stars when I better understand it. For now there are still something's I'm trying to figure out about it. But for now I can say it's brilliant. I have that freedom to play around with a shot before I've set up. Storyboards are a breeze. As are shot lists. About to start production and I can not stop using this app to block the scene! Its worth it. Time saver with tons of help and support.
2 ★I can understand your marketing this for the price you have, but for the purpose of proving stability in program; you need to offer holding one saved work. Let us see if it works when we get back to work on it. The $ 19.00 is a lot for a mobile app. Personally; I've been burned to often.
4 ★Sometimes I just have to make a single lighting plan for a DP that is filling in for a day. seems there is no way to label the camera settings to the camera icon ... Kind of annoying. Also can't figure out for the life of me how to make arrows. I need to make labels for each light informing the DP which light is what but for some reason the labels float above the light rather than linking to it with some sort of indicator such as a line. otherwise it's a great app!
4 ★I just really wish it would save everything online though. Going back and forth between my phone and desktop with emails gets a little annoying. Other than that, nothing worth complaing about. Very helpful when making sure the dp and director are on the same page.
5 ★Grt for my exp lvl (Adult student- screen and media). This has so much potential to becoming a fully fledge post/production app. (#sometimes, if I focus real hard, brilliant things appear in front me).
5 ★I love this app. 5 stars. The free version is a good introduction but if your serious, the paid version is well worth it. It really is quick, and after learning the in's and outs it is intuitive. They really have thought of almost everything. The desktop version ( I have a Mac Pro) is just as good. I hope they continue to develop it, like adding more props (hint: like Celtix props) and maybe a way to tie it into the pages of your script. Nevertheless, well done! I hope their support is just as good!
1 ★I bought it with my iPhone and it stopped working few minutes later. I sent a message and they answered that the problem could take a week to be solved. I had taken pictures on the set so I downloaded the app to samsun S3. They sent me a code to be placed in somewhere in the app that doesn't exist in the app version for Samsung S3. So I have spent time trying to solve this problem but it still unsolved. So I highly not recommend you to pay for it until it works for free on your device.
3 ★Looks pretty good. Unfortunately, you have to get the full version to even just save a scene. Will probably uninstall.
5 ★Having watched the 6-DVD Master course from HCW, this is the perfect companion! Any filmmaker should own the materials offered by HCW, this app and the DVD set!!!
4 ★Thus far, I'm impressed. I haven't used it for an actual production but I think it'll be fun when I do.
