THE DAY SHALL DECLARE IT
In co-production with Wilderness, HELO produced a 4-month run of the immersive theatrical show The Day Shall Declare It. The show, written and conceived by Annie Saunders, is a site-specific theatrical experience that looks at working: what it means to us and what it does to us.
Based on multiple plays and stories by Tennessee Williams, and interviews from Studs Terkel’s Working, text is interwoven with dynamic and visceral choreography which speaks to the subtext of each story.
HELO bookended the immersive theatrical experience with a speakeasy style bar that blended elements of the immersive show into a food and beverage experience that was open to the public.
The bar and show operated over a 4-month period in downtown Los Angeles during which the show was consistently sold-out.
Working with Academy Award winner Daniel Junge and Jackass creators Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville, HELO produced a feature-length documentary film about the larger than life daredevil legend Evel Knievel.
The film was financed by A&E, distributed theatrically by Gravitas Ventures, and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
Working with Academy Award winner Daniel Junge in collaboration with LEGO, HELO produced the definitive documentary about the phenomenon of the LEGO brick. Narrated by Jason Bateman, the animated and live-action documentary covers the history of LEGO, it’s unlikely explosion into pop-culture consciousness, and highlights some of the amazing artists and enthusiasts who make the phenomenon what it is today.
The film premiered at the TriBeCa Film Festival and was acquired for global distribution by Lantern Entertainment.
