George Danopoulos was born in Athens at 1974.
He studied sound engineering theory and cinema history at Papantonopoulos School of cinematography while at the same time he did his practical training in several live concerts across Greece, as assistant sound engineer. From 2001 up to 2014 he worked at the Greek National Opera House as sound engineer and cameraman, in both internal and external productions. That particular period he took up photography as an amateur photographer and soon enough he collaborated professionally with various publications regarding social reportage. He also, participated in several photography exhibitions, such as the Athens Art Puzzle, in Athens. In 2010, on his own initiative, he held his first directorial attempt with the documentary "Operetta your inner world" at the National Opera, but unfortunately the film did not find its way to any Festivals as there were problems concerning music copyrights. He has worked on television productions as director and camera operator, he has created video clips and theatrical trailers, has collaborated with foreign agencies such as Sipa Press for productions in Greece and participates in educational programs of the Caravan Project. In 2018 he finished “Rita”, a short documentary film describing the story of an old prostitute of Athens.
