About Us

Having started our journey in the year 2014 and located at God’s own country, Budget Lab Productions aims at creating a platform for young budding talents who are looking for an opportunity to prove their mettle by producing Short Films/Movies. Our first production CORPORATE was in the year 2014, followed by CANVAS in the year 2017 and CHAOS THEORY in the year 2018. The fourth film produced by Budget Lab is under production.

Apart from producing short movies, we also extend our support to young filmmakers who already have made a short film by buying their film’s Television/VoD rights.

We also front end and run creative contests for partners who are into different lines of business.

In the years to come, Budget Lab’s vision is to be a world class professionally run production company and also transform ourselves as a market place for all actors, technicians or one’s associated with cinema.

Look Back



  • If you are a director or script writer aspirant, try to take part in the budget lab short film production contest. Even if you don’t win the contest the experience is invaluable. You will definitely go through all the script writing processes and even budget allocation. After competing in this contest, the way you look at short film making will be different, you will be more professional and you will plan everything before the shoot. I was part of season 2 contest and I was not the winner but I got these experiences which I surely think will help in future. Kudos to the team BUDGET LAB PRODUCTIONS which inspires youngsters.

  • Hi friends, I have never written recommendations in any of the FB pages or communities since I joined. But for Budget labs I have to write couple of words which I have experienced!! First of all I have to say a big thanks to the whole crew members of Budget labs for giving us for an opportunity like this!! സിനിമ സ്വപ്നം കാണുന്നവന് ഇതേ പോലൊരു platform വേറെ കിട്ടുമോ എന്ന് തന്നെ doubt ആണ്!! അതു കൊണ്ട് തന്നെ എല്ലാരും season 3ൽ participate ചെയ്യുക. ഇതേ പോലൊരു opportunity നിങ്ങൾക്ക് കിട്ടില്ല. Win/lose is just part of a competition. But they will make us professionals if we work together. It’s guaranteed!!

  • Budget lab provides a great platform for all the film lovers out there to pursue their dream of film making. They are providing a great opportunity for people like me who has this dream of film making, but don’t know how or where to start. I was selected as one of the top25 candidates for the season 2 short film contest. That gives a lot of confidence and suddenly you realize you can actually do something creatively. They are very supportive too. As a lover of the art of film making, I personally recommend Budget Lab to all the film lovers out there.

  • സിനിമയെ സ്നേഹിക്കുന്ന ഒരുപാടുപേർ ഇവിടെയുണ്ട്. Short film സിനിമയിലേക്കുള്ള ചവിട്ടുപടിയാകുന്നത് നമ്മൾ കണ്ടതുമാണ്. Short film-ന് പ്രൊഡ്യൂസറെ കിട്ടുകയെന്നത് ശ്രമകരമായ ഒന്നാണ് അവിടെയാണ് Budget Lab -ന്റെ പ്രവർത്തനങ്ങൾ ശ്രധേയമാകുന്നത്. പുതിയ film makers -നെ കണ്ടെത്തുവാനുള്ള Budget Lab-ന്റെ സമീപനം വളരെയധികം അഭിനന്ദനം അർഹിക്കുന്നതാണ്. Budget Lab -ന്റെ പിന്നണിയിൽ പ്രവർത്തിക്കുന്ന എല്ലാവർക്കും എന്റെ ആശംസകൾ.

  • It's really difficult to find a producer for short films. But Budget Lab Productions came forward with a new Short Film Production Contest for supporting proficient ones. It's only because of their compassionate warm heart and tremendous endearment for cinema. Their attitude and passionate interest in cinema are well-known for their short films ‘Canvas’ and ‘Corporate’ which was directed by Nishant Pillai Sir. Now, they are in this glorious program & in search of adroit filmmakers to create some superlative short films. Hope this fabulous contest will prolong boundlessly with humongous achievements.

  • Budget lab productions are paving a way for the up and coming film makers to showcase their talents, which most of the production houses don't do in the current time. This initiative is so great at the time since most of the youngsters are involved in media productions. Keep up the good work Budget lab and all the very best to all the people who are associated with this humble yet extraordinary venture.

  • I had watched Canvas earlier and much later came to know of Budget Lab when a few friends send me links to the contest. I was apprehensive but such a professional approach to not just running the competition but the warmth in dealing with the participants/ contestants. Deep seated passion is evident and your appreciation has motivated many amateurs like myself to strive harder for our passion. Kudos!
