The Super Villain Network recently sat down with HELIO Writer/Director Teddy Cecil to discuss the project’s inception, as well as challenges faced throughout the ambitious production. Check out the article here!
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.”
Thank you FilmQuest! We could hardly believe the lineup and were honored that HELIO was a part of it. Highly recommended for all filmmakers and cinefiles.
HELIO will be at FilmQuest this weekend for its Utah Premiere! We’re in the running for Best Short Sci-Fi Film and Best Visual Effects! A guaranteed good time. The film block we’re in is the first of the festival on Friday and the lineup is incredible: 3 Versos, Gear, Pheonix, Sumer, The Black Forest, The Peripheral, The Smiling Man, and Total Awesome Viking Power.
