About the project
RUN LIKE HELL is a short film, a thrilling chase set in the desolate wasteland of Purgatory. Our main character, Howard the Coward, awakes in a field to find himself caught in a deadly manhunt. Now, Howard must face the Devil and his past sins or suffer eternal damnation. Five years ago the idea for a crazy chase film with the Devil came about. Now that film is just begging to be made. It seemed the perfect idea for a thesis film. So here we are...

Bailor Ellison is writing and directing RUN LIKE HELL. He has been commanding the crew from the very beginning. He likes pushing everyone to their limits, cause in the end he's all about the film. If it's written by Bailor you can expect something down right disgusting and inspiring at the same time. His spirit animal is The Owl, a perfectionist at heart. The Owl uses wisdom as his weapon and has a watchful eye for hidden details.
Chris Lowery is producing RUN LIKE HELL. He has been writing, directing, and shooting film and other projects since childhood. He likes to boss people around, and therefore loves his job. His spirit animal is The Fox, a teacher of guidance with the agility to avoid stunting obstacles.
Dillon O'Neal is also producing RUN LIKE HELL. The story was birthed within his mind a mere 5 years or so back in time. Bailor and Dillon have worked on the script and story together since late childhood, IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME. Dillon has a wide variety of media skills to throw in the mixing pot, with a background in audio, and a foreground in film/photography. He likes long walks on the beach and listening to Chris boss people around. His spirit animal is The Hawk, essentially a keen observer and leader when need be.
Where are we going?
You keep hearing this word, "desolate wasteland" maybe some pictures of our beautiful location will help.
We aren't restricting ourselves to just the great outdoors, abandoned cabins and shacks really get us excited!
Lets gets to the horse power! In the film we will be using a few classic vehicles for each character. After all, it is a chase film right? Below are the cars that we have gained access to using in the film!
Why we need you
Our film has cars, guns, crazy characters, and needs a lot of equipment, people, and several locations. One of our primary costs is actually feeding the people who work on the film. We need a large crew and they need to be taken care of. Feeding them over the course of the shoot will constitute up to 15% of our total budget. Another major concern is camera and lighting equipment. In addition, there are props, costumes, set dressings (and other location costs), transportation, and post production costs (small in comparison, but still significant). So you can understand why we're here.
Risks and challenges
A lot of films fail. Even with successful funding, we will still have this possibility looming over us.
Equipment can fail. Cast and crew can fall through. Locations don't work out. Props and costumes can be lost. People can even get hurt (luckily there's insurance for that). There are risks with any and all projects this is a fact.
A big challenge is executing our high risk effects and camera actions that have been written into the script. This is no, "go to film school and make a movie about a guy and girl that meet at a coffee shop" type of student film. This is an ALL out ATTENTION heat seeking missile shot to the heart type of film. We all feel a bit like men on the moon taking that first step for mankind. With a bit of nerves, excitement and confidence mixed with your understanding and support we know this is in the bag.
Now we know that funding minimizes our risks, but we still have to plan for the worst. Backup equipment, backup people, backups locations... Backup everything... We are going in to this battle prepared for the worst.
We've had our share of challenges in the past, but this, our biggest project yet, will bring many more. And that sounds pretty fun to us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
