PlotWhile driving home from their summer vacation, siblings Paul and Marilyn find themselves stranded at a desolate truck-stop when their car breaks down along the back roads of upstate New York. Before long, they discover that a strange creature is being held in a cage behind the local auto shop, and the shop's mechanic, along with his assistant, plan on feeding them to it. In their attempt to escape, Paul and Marilyn fall prey to these two homicidal locals, bent on preserving the secret of their bloodthirsty pet monster

Pre-ProductionClay DuMaw first dreamt up Get Out Alive in early 2010 while living in Syracuse, New York. It was a thirty page screenplay about several people trapped in a motel during an alien invasion. A lot of changes have been made since then. The sci-fi idea was dropped in favor of monsters, murderers, bear traps, blood, and of course, a chainsaw. Several re-writes later, the project has become a tribute to classic films like The Evil Dead, Friday the 13th and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Over the next six months, the makers of Get Out Alive simultaneously worked on re-writes, scouted for locations, built props and auditioned actors. Since local talent was scarce, casting calls were posted on craigslist for any available actors with a passion for film.

ProductionWith the cast and crew assembled, filming took place on weekends at a small auto-shop near the edge of town. With a tight shooting schedule of just fifteen days, the filmmakers were only able to get one or two takes of each scene. The result was a gritty style of cinematography, which ultimately became the aesthetic of the film. Although some of the props had to be custom built, many others were often found on location and used opportunistically. Wrenches, chairs, oily rags, all of which were part of the setting, complemented the film's realistic look and feel.

Post-ProductionAlthough production is finished and the raw footage is almost uploaded, there is still much to be done. After editing, the film must pass through necessary steps before its completion.  These proccesses include color correction, sound correction, music, mixing & mastering and visual effects. Fortunately we have friends in most of these fields who can give us some pretty good deals.  But despite our ability to stretch a dollar, the cost of film festivals remain unflexible.  This is where you come in.  Every dollar that is pledged toward our campagin will ensure that this movie is seen by audiences.  Without generous backers like you, this film will never see the light of day.

Although this is our second Kickstarter campaign, it in no way cancels out any aspect of the first one. Think of it more as a continuation of it. All the rewards from the first campaign will be sent out roughly at the same time as this one with the exception of the DVDs, which cannot be pressed or mailed until the film is complete.  In addition, VIP Passes do not cover travel expenses or lodging, and choices of severed limb props are issued on a first-come first-served basis.
