Tagline: All he had to do was... get out of there.
The conception of “Get Out of There” began with the objective of capturing an inescapable nightmare on camera. The sort of nightmare in which the participant physically is unable to move fast enough to evade some form of opposition. Having experienced these types of nightmares on numerous occasions I craved to bring them to life in the form of a movie and what better way to express a nightmare than through a ghost story.
Visually the film is influenced by the early work of Steven Spielberg including films like Jaws (1975) and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) . Even the Jaws knock off Grizzly (1976) served as a source of inspiration. Since we were producing a 70s inspired movie, it just felt right to look at everything we could from that era to capture the tone and atmosphere of those films.
Another important goal for us was to ground the movie in reality. Every detail from the 10-codes to the vintage 1970’s uniform had to be one hundred percent accurate to give the film a strong sense of reality. We even chose to hold back on the use of music for the majority of the film to allow the sound design to do much of the work of creating tension. It is only upon the picture’s climax that we christen the horror with a piece of music composed by a 59 piece orchestra.
The design of the picture is to set the audience into our protagonist’s shoes and in doing so see him not as an authority figure but as an everyman. He could be any of us and we could just as easily fall into such a horrific event. So once the cards are stacked against him, the tension will be closing in… on all of us.
