From the director:
"The pandemic has been a difficult time for indie filmmakers and artists. I feel incredibly lucky that with the help of my family and film crew, we were able to shoot The Getaway safely during a very uncertain time during Covid-19. In many ways, the restrictions forced me to find more creative and intimate solutions to the storytelling. I hope you enjoy what we created."

Erin Enberg is from a tiny woodsy town in Maine where many Stephen King stories take place. To Erin, King’s stories were local legends, not worldwide bestsellers, and she would fill notebooks of her own stories, hoping to emulate his success.

Erin received her B.A. in Human Ecology with a focus on Film and Writing from the College of the Atlantic, a small hippie school on an island off the coast of Maine.

She moved to NYC, worked in production, and assisted fellow filmmakers in a documentary about unique roadside attractions where they traveled around the country on a renovated city bus with nine people she had never met, seeing the western states for the first time.

After freelancing as a PA, Grip, Location Scout, AD, Set Decorator and more for A&E, MTV, NBC, TLC, Food Network and others in NYC and Maine, Erin received her MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast Program. Her feature script “Rock N’ Roll and the Immortal Soul” was a second rounder for the Sundance Feature Film Labs.

Erin has written and directed several short films that have won various awards including Arabel (Best Maine Film, Emerge Film Fest 2015) and The Poet (Best Short Film, Noosa Intl' Film Fest, Queensland, Australia, and Audience Award, Best Horror Short at SENE Film Fest, Providence, RI). Her TV pilots have placed in the Final Draft Big Break Contest and Cinestory in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Most recently she worked as an Executive Assistant in Original Content at HBO Max.

Erin usually lives in Burbank except during the pandemic when she escaped back to Maine for some temporary isolation in the woods with her family.
