A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM SCREENWRITER, PIERS ASHWORTH:

“Writing the screenplay for Frostbite made me realize just how perfect the story is for a movie. It is filled with action and emotion and incredible characters all of whom evolve through the story. I can’t wait to see Adrian’s onscreen introduction… not to mention Natasha and Eddie and Janine. But I think my favorite new character is Isaiah. In this film the Strigoi are really, really scary… and the worst of them, the most powerful, is Isaiah. Immeasurably strong and almost impossible to kill he’s the ultimate bad guy and the perfect opponent for Rose. Because of his existence (and his plan to eradicate the Moroi royal families) there is tension from the very first page. That gives the film an energy and a pace that will keep audiences (even those who have never read the books) on the edge of their seats until the very end. 

We have to get this movie made. We have to meet Adrian and understand the new dimension he brings to the story. We have to experience the changes Rose undergoes as she battles the ultimate foe at the same time as coming to terms with her relationships (including the one with her mother). We have to see the battle of wills in the basement - and the surprise of Mia’s use of water magic to incapacitate Isaiah. We have to see the Strigoi for what they really are. Please help make that happen”.


WHAT DO FANS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT FROSTBITE?


August 7th:

Due to FAN DEMAND, we are now offering the St. Vladimir's Academy Hoodie as it's own perk! Check out the updates for all the details and answers to your burning questions!

                   




Four years ago we embarked on a journey to bring Richelle Mead’s beloved series, “Vampire Academy,” to the big screen. Upon securing the rights we immediately came to YOU, the fans, with our hopes for this franchise. Creating and building a social media presence ended up being the best decision we ever made. Through the ups and downs of these last years, YOU have stood by us and for that we are forever thankful.

And now, here we are, back to square one. With over 360,000 film fans on our Facebook page and 47,000 Twitter followers -  the one message we continue to receive is clear and simple: YOU WANT FROSTBITE. 

Exhausting all our resources these past six months, we have successfully funded the majority of the second film. However, our financiers have made one request before we are officially green lit. They want to see a large enough fan interest to warrant their investment. And so, we turn to YOU, the self-proclaimed #VAFamily to make this a reality.

We are asking for our global fan base – US, Australia, Brazil, UK, Philippines, Mexico, Canada, Indonesia, India, Romania, Turkey, Greece, Germany, New Zealand, France, Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, Pakistan, Bulgaria, Sweden, Malaysia, Croatia, Argentina, Algeria, Egypt, Spain, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Morocco, Slovenia, Serbia, Thailand, South Africa, Russia, Hungary, Venezuela, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Singapore, Bosnia, Herzegovina and Netherlands (to name a few) – to help us continue Rose and Lissa’s story.

It has come to our attention that many of our fans never had the opportunity to see the first film in the theatre - and in fact, many of you are still waiting for the DVD to be released in your country. Therefore, our biggest concern moving forward is guaranteeing that YOU have access to the film. This is very important to us because we are asking you to put your faith in our team once more. Provided that our goal is met, we pledge to bring FROSTBITE directly to YOU via a digital download for those contributing $30 or over.

What we are asking for is nothing new. Other films have achieved their own personal goals and we know, with your help, so can we. When we look back at what you have accomplished – MTV Movie Brawl Finals, Teen Choice Award Nominations, etc – we know that when the #VAFamily sets their sights on a goal, they always reach it.

We need to raise 1.5 million to see Frostbite become a reality. If we raise more, it will only allow us to make an even better film for YOU.

Per the request of the fans for a true book to film adaptation, our screenwriter, Piers Ashworth ("St.Trinian's"), has delivered! Only by reaching our full goal amount will we move forward, but with your help we know we can bring Adrian, Eddie, Tasha, Janine and the rest of the VA characters to life once more. 

We leave you with this thought…reaching our goal will not only green light FROSTBITE, it will bring us one step closer to SHADOW KISS!

-Your VA Producing Team

                 


Best friends, Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir, have settled back at St. Vladimir’s Academy and have finally gotten a handle on Lissa’s rare Spirit magic and their Shadowkissed bond. With Victor Dashkov behind bars, Rose and Lissa believe their worries are behind them until an alarming rise in Strigoi attacks puts everyone at risk.

Whisked away to a secure mountain lodge for their own safety, the students of St. Vladamir’s are treated to a winter ski vacation while the Guardian’s work to uncover how the Strigoi have learned to disable the magical wards that protect all Moroi dwellings.

Set in the beautiful snow covered mountains of Montana and Idaho, Rose’s relationships and abilities are put to the ultimate test.

All projects face risks and challenges – Will it rain the day we need to shoot outside? What if the entire cast comes down with the stomach flu? This is why productions have insurance and a top-notch production team. Our VA crew were some of the best out there – coming from some of the biggest movies of all time – and we look forward to creating an even better team for FROSTBITE. 

Another challenge we face is cast availability. Our main cast have been very busy with other projects since we wrapped VA and are booked years out on future projects. (What can we say - we cast a very talented bunch!) Although we are extremely eager to have them all return we cannot guarantee it. However, we will do everything in our power to make it possible.

What about your risk? While Indiegogo's policy is to collect all contributions immediately, the filmmakers WILL NOT receive the funds unless we reach our goal. Should we fall short, Indiegogo will handle all refunds and you are free to partake in some retail therapy. 

Important Reward Information:

-Travel, lodging and transportation to set visits not included.

-You must be over 18 or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to visit set.

-Some rewards may require additional paperwork



1. When will the movie be made?

Upon reaching our goal we will start pre-production at the end of the year with an early shoot plan for early 2015 - based on cast availability.

2. When will the movie be release?

Our goal is to release FROSTBITE the end of 2015. While we would like to have the film theatrically released, we can only promise at this point that backers above $30 will receive a digital copy of the film.

3. How will I get my digital download?

Once we reach our goal, we will work to ensure that the film reaches all of our global fans. Instructions on how to claim your download will be emailed when the time comes!

4. When will I receive my items?

The filmmakers do not receive the funds until we meet our goal, and because of that we cannot officially place any orders for the rewards until that happens. Once we are fully funded we will need to reach out to fans for t-shirt and hoodie sizes and in a few lucky cases – to arrange set visits! Basically, we will update the shipping schedule once we reach our goal.

5. What can I expect from being a Featured Extra?

Once we’ve confirmed our schedule and location we will get in contact with you. We anticipate a 6-week shoot in Europe or Australia– but this can change. Please note that travel and lodging is not included and you will need to get yourself to set. Hey, we just want to give you the FULL extra experience! As we said above in the risks and challenges, anything can happen on set and usually does – so while we can’t tell you exactly what to expect and who you will meet, we do promise you will leave exhausted, but happy!

6. I’m giving you my money – what if I have more questions?

Please feel free to email us at FrostbiteFilm@gmail.com with any questions or concerns. While we love hearing from ALL our fans, we will not be able to respond to any emails soliciting internships, job inquires or auditions at this time.

7. How do I receive my Digital Badge?

Once you make your contribution to our campaign (Thanks!), you will receive an official Thank You email (seriously, Thank you!) with instructions on how to download your badge.
