Helmer circles round shorts

Smith presented with big 'O'

Helmer Kevin Smith was honored with an Ovation Award — in the form of a giant metal “O” — at Group 101’s bash Monday evening at the Egyptian Theater.

“I can’t thank you enough for this,” Smith said. “It kinda brings me full circle in my career.”

Event featured the screening of 16 new shorts from Group 101 filmmakers. Members are challenged to produce a new pic every 30 days, leading Smith to term them “Weight Watchers for filmmakers.’
