Exciting news, guys! Moviemaker Magazine just gave a shout-out to HELIO in their post on the FilmQuest Festival experience!!! Check out the excerpt below:
“The variety, creativity and production quality of the films impressed beyond my expectations and helped banish the notion that genre events are somehow less serious than traditional film festivals. Whether your thing is mind-warping horror (The House at the End of Time), time-travel comedy (“One-Minute Time Machine”) or dystopian sci-fi (“Helio”), there was much to take seriously.” #HelioTheFilm #FilmQuest #MovieMaker
Check out what Film Pulse had to say about HELIO at FilmQuest:
“Teddy Cecil’s “Helio” is an ambitious dystopian tale about one man who seizes an opportunity to find out just what lies beyond the city limits. It features plenty of great visual effects, quite noteworthy because of its low budget, well paced action sequences and an engaging story that will make you want to see reach its unexpected conclusion.”
