Morgan Stipe is not a film maker. He is a self centered dreamer from small town Rhode Island, obsessed with becoming a Hollywood player, regardless of the cost. Driven by ego, Morgan launches a new production company "A Flash of Yellow Pictures," relying entirely upon the efforts and connections of others. His childhood friend, Quinley Blais, a successful Rhode Island videographer, is dragged into Morgan's twisted universe, grudgingly subsidizing Morgan's dream by providing the technical know how and by hosting the gala cocktail party celebrating the rollout of the fledgling production company. All the while, Morgan's dutiful girlfriend, Mel Cafferty, tries to salvage their relationship in spite of Morgan's relentless pursuit of fame. Morgan's real ace in the hole is a dirty little secret - known only to himself and an old friend who has already hit the big time: the now famous falling star and local hero, Jacob Mattison. With this long standing debt of silence to Morgan hanging over ... Written by breaking branches pictures

i had the chance to view getting out of rhode island earlier this year at the black point film festival (where it ended up a multiple winner in the awards cermony) and was quite surprised that such a small film provided me with one of my most enjoyable film experiences in recent memory. as an entirely improvised feature, apparently shot in one locale, i saw elements of the dogme school, altman, and cassevettes thrown into the chaos that unfolds over the course of the evening's events. a film tragic, and amusing, and hypnotic, i was exhausted by the time the last sheepish party guest left. be forewarned, take dramamine before viewing....motion sickness could occur!! but all in all, an unbelievable gem, like nothing the studios are putting out today....thank god!
