Kickstarter Page was a success
We have successfully reached our goal!
Last fall we successfully reached our KickStarter goal of $20K. Since then we have been busy doing our online edits and pick up shoots. We locked picture in March and now the film is in the final stages of post. We just sent the film to our post audio house for mixing . In addition, our colorist is clearing off his schedule and getting ready to dive in. We have also found an amazing composer who is creating an all original score for the film. Please stand by for more info and festival locations and screenings.
Gripped is a feature length rock climbing survival epic that takes place on the side of a 1000ft cliff. Set high in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, Gripped follows the story of Rose, a gym climber from Los Angeles who falls for Bret, a rugged outdoorsman who gets the two in over their heads when they embark on the famous rock climbing route called "Killer Pillar”. Bret takes a huge fall and suffers a serious head injury and torn shoulder. With no way to retreat off the cliff, Rose is forced to take the lead and finish the 1000ft of climbing to the summit. However, Rose has very little experience with high alpine traditional climbing and when night falls and they are forced to bivouac on the side of the cliff. After a long night on the ledge and a potential storm approaching, it’s “climb or die” for Rose and its gonna take everything in her power to gain the summit successfully.
