The April 2018 Los Angeles FEEDBACK Film Festival was a tale of two festivals. The audience was overly positive and receptive in the first half documentary moderation, and then the gloves came out in the 2nd half. Perhaps the most “judgemental” and polarizing moderation session this festival has had in over 2 years.

The theme of the festival was “Self Empowerment”.

The LA Festival is building itself up month by month. The co-MVPs of the festival were our camera operators Zack Arch & Aser Santos Jr.. They have really nailed how to shoot in this gigantic cinema and make sure that all the coverage is there for the editor.

They both have to shoot hand-held style as they run up and down the aisles to make sure they have the best shot possible when the audience member is talking. They are in a full sweat after they are done. This type of shooting is not done anywhere else and it took a bit for them to master it – but master it they have!

The crowds are building up and all ready for conversing about the films. I can’t wait to hear what they think about our upcoming lineup of films from around the world.

See you at the festivals.

  MOVIE POSTERHELIO, 20min., USA, Sci-Fi/Action
Directed by Teddy Cecil

One worker sparks an uprising when he attempts to break free of his dystopian underworld.

Introduction

HELIO is a short, visceral film centered on a post-apocalyptic underground society where its citizens mine to sustain their dark existence. Presented by Shadow Council Productions, in association with Innovate Entertainment, HELIO is an independent film from first-time writer/director Teddy Cecil. With the ambitious production scale and challenging VFX elements, the process took almost two years to complete from inception to final cut. This project represents Shadow Council’s first of many properties to be developed and produced in-house.

Director’s Statement

HELIO is the culmination of many talented yet under appreciated artists collaborating tirelessly to create a film where, if we’re successful, you won’t even notice all that’s been accomplished. Instead, you’ll be enjoying the adventure.

Company

Shadow Council Productions is a Los Angeles-based production company dedicated to creating innovative media content. Founded in 2010 and run by Teddy Cecil, Nick Cofino and Brett Miller, Shadow Council started as a small creative outlet, packaging and filming promotional material for other producers and artists. Once the three friends and business partners gained the experience and momentum needed, they shifted focus towards their own projects, the first of which was HELIO.

Shadow Council’s objective is to create unique and epic visual experiences and bring them to audiences everywhere across multiple platforms. Every Shadow Council production is treated like a passion project designed to be commercially viable.
