We’ve just received word that two of Helmann’s scripts have placed at the 27th annual Austin Film Festival. His original 1-hour dramatic pilot, THE DISAPPEARED ONES, was selected as a Second Rounder while his spec for SUCCESSION (“Human Piñata”) placed as a semi-finalist, making it the top 2% out of 13,000 submissions. This is the second year one of Helmann’s scripts have placed at the Oscar-qualifying festival, which is going virtual this year.
