FilmThreat.com’s Chris Gore raves about Helicopter and says: “A short displaying serious drama can often come off as laughable. A lot of shorts these days focus on comedy, satire or parody — an easy road to take for a first short film. Often those short films that intend to express any kind of real emotion come off as schmaltzy or humorous based on the inexperience of the filmmaker. â€œHelicopterâ€ is a short that will tear audiences to shreds emotionally when they realize the true seriousness of the subject matter. Itâ€™s the kind of film that one needs to recover from.”
Don’t miss this amazing short film! Helicopter screens this Wednesday evening for FREE on the huge beautiful Dolby-Digital screen at the DGA.
