Helgerson - Winner January ‘11 RALLY POINT When a young man's dream of becoming a successful rally car driver gets sidetracked by his domineering girlfriend, his friends set out to expose her true nature.


Throughout my life I’ve been on the lookout for creative outlets. Art was my first love and then I became enamored with storytelling. Whether I needed an excuse for why I was late or just wanted to make friends laugh; I’d have a story at the ready. Pretty early on I decided to commit my stories to paper and was forever hooked.

As I made my way through secondary school and university I would always be sure to include some sort of writing class to hone my skills. At this point I was still writing for my own enjoyment. When I learned of my impending employment hiccup I decided I should pursue a career doing what I love. I enrolled in a screenwriting course here in Minneapolis and got to work.

Over the course of the next couple of years my writing shifted from short stories to screenplays – both shorts and feature length. I also had the privilege to intern as a reader with a Screenwriting Workshop and local Production Company. I have also been employed as a reader, which provided many lessons that I have applied to my own writing.

It is from all this that my first feature length screenplay, RALLY POINT, came into being. I am using the momentum created by my win of Monthly Script Contest for January 2011 (my first contest entry) to finish my current screenplay and begin the next.
