Plot: Two streams of consciousness come together in Bobst Library as a young girl, lonely and unsure, and an inquisitive boy strike up a conversation and find strange solace in each other. Helicopter is inspired by writing by Tao Lin. You can watch a "rough draft" of the project by clicking HERE.
Our entire cast and crew are volunteering their time and effort to create this project, which has been in the works since last year! We're a mix of Gallatin and Tisch students all dedicated to the arts, perfecting their crafts, and learning new skills in the industry (just click their names for links to some of their awesome work, or if they don't have one just trust that they're rad a f!). Everyone on board has worked on a plethora of productions both big and small, has a great deal of talent, and believes wholeheartedly in this project!

Risks and challenges
-We're students, so the possibility of someone dropping out of the project is a possibility, though I assure everyone that at the moment all crew members on board are dedicated to the making this happen!
-Production delays could include: traffic to a set and bad weather during our ferry scene. If this happens, we have scheduled an extra day the weekend of the shoot specifically for pick-ups.
-We may need extra transportation that has not been budgeted in. If worse comes to worse my parents will come help us out (Thanks, Mom and Dad!).
-If we do not get enough donuts the crew might be hungry. If this happens, Kit has a meal plan and will use it to buy the crew food.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
