Here is an exclusive clip from HELIO directed by Teddy Cecil, and premiering in San Diego at the 2016 Comic Con Independent Film Festival.
Starring Barrett James, Dio Johnson, Derek Chariton, Erik Denton, Chuck Wigginton and Dennis Keiffer, HELIO is a short, visceral film centered on a post apocalyptic underground society where miners work for light to survive. But when a dying rebel thrusts the unexpected onto an unassuming worker’s lap, all hell breaks loose. What begins as one man’s race to escape the hostile government quickly escalates into a city-wide uprising of the people.
Born and raised in New York, Writer/Director Teddy Cecil moved out to Los Angeles in 2009 upon completing his film studies at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. HELIO represents his first sincere foray into writing, directing and producing his own material.
The Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival runs as part of Comic-Con International and features the very best in genre films in seven categories: Action/Adventure, Animation, Comics-Oriented, Documentary (Pop Culture-Oriented), Horror/Suspense, Humor, and Science Fiction/Fantasy.
