Frostbite Movie Script Sneak Peek #5

Sneak Peek #5 is Mason and Rose! Only two weeks left of the IndieGoGo Campaign, be sure to keep contributing what you can and help spread the word!

If you missed the other sneak peeks:

Ways to help the Frostbite Campaign be a success:

With only 15 days left on the IndieGoGo Campaign and a 14% of the $1.5 million gained, we have a long way to go. BUT, it's not all said and done yet! This only means that we have to put in some extra effort to turn things around. If you have already donated and don't know how else you can help, the best way to do so is to spread the word. Listed below are a few of the ongoing fan efforts, please join in!

The best way to convince the world that people want Frostbite is to tell them ourselves. All you have to do is make a video in which you let people know how much Frostbite means to you and why you think it needs to be adapted to film. We have received several amazing videos so far, see them here! Or learn more and submit your own

Show You're Ready For Frostbite 2015:
If you can't do a video blog, you can do a quick picture! (Thanks to Zlata from Bosnia!) Simply post a picture of yourself saying "We Are Ready for Frostbite 2015" to spread the message around the web. You can follow the example of these awesome fans in the slideshow below who have already submitted their pictures. Click here for more info on how to send yours. 

Media Reach Out:
VAFandomUSA and RoseComrade have kicked off a media reach out campaign in which fans alternate 5 media outlets every two days. All you have to do is send them a tweet in which you ask for their help in spreading the word or simply tell them why you believe in Frostbite and why they should too. 
  • Current media outlets: @YahooMovies@EW@JaredEng@Teen
  • Sample tweet format: @username [your message] #Frostbite2015Campaign

Any and all efforts to spread the word are extremely helpful! Unfortunately, the biggest struggle when it comes to Vampire Academy world is reaching all the fans out there who aren't aware of the situation. Getting these people, as well as new ones, on board can make or break Frostbite. Remember that it's an all-or-nothing deal and every bit helps!

If you have any other ideas on how to spread the word, or if we've missed any above please let us know! You can tweet us or email at Thank you!

#FansForFrostbite Video Blogs

As many of you know, in order to bring Frostbite to life, we're going to have to do a LOT of convincing. It is up to us to show the financial backers that we do, in fact, want and demand a Frostbite movie. Getting word out was one of the biggest issues we had earlier this year and we need to make sure we don't make the same mistake twice. For the IndieGoGo campaign to be a success we're going to have to put in the extra work to make sure everyone knows what's at stake and how much we need their help.

To get this done, we've received a call to action from the Vampire Academy producers to launch the #FansForFrostbite Video Blogs and we need YOU to participate. The goal of these videos is to show people just how passionate Vampire Academy fans can be and convince everyone that they need to do their part in getting Frostbite on screen. 

All you have to do is make a video in which you talk about: 
  1. Why you love Vampire Academy - Frostbite 
  2. Why the Frostbite movie should be made 
  3. How people can help (IndieGoGo, spreading the word, etc.)
Once your videos have been recorded, upload them to YouTube and Tweet/Facebook them with the hashtag #FansForFrostbite. The best videos will be featured and retweeted by us and @OfficialVAMovie.

Remember that the IndieGoGo campaign is a vital part in getting Frostbite Made. If you're able to donate, please make sure you do! Every bit helps. The $1.5 million goal is completely attainable if we're able to get the word out to as many fans as possible. 

Think of it this way, if each of the 45K+ twitter followers on @OfficialVAMovie donate $35, that alone will have gotten us to our goal. If you take out the inactive fans or those who aren't able to donate that amount (or at all) we still have over 360K fans on Facebook to pull from as well. See where we're going with this? Word of mouth is crucial at this moment and we need everyone's help to make Frostbite a reality.

We look forward to watching your videos! Click here to watch the videos submitted so far. 

First Sneak Peak of the Frostbite Movie Script!

Here's the first look at the Frostbite script which gives us a little introduction to Adrian Ivashkov! You can obtain the full script when you donate $30 USD or more to the IndieGoGo campaign which begins tomorrow!

'Frostbite' Fundraising Campaign Announced!

‘Vampire Academy’ Filmmakers Turn To IndieGoGo, Fans For A Sequel: Exclusive

The producers behind the first film are this week launching an IndieGoGo campaign to raise money for “Frostbite: A Vampire Academy Film.” If fans contribute $1.5 million, the financial backers will be convinced that there’s enough fan demand for the movie and fund the rest of the production cost.

The campaign launches this Wednesday, August 6.

Producer Mike Preger said that the decision to move forward with the crowdfunding campaign was totally motivated by the fans.

“The fans mean everything to us,” he said in an email to MTV News. “We decided to move forward with ‘Frostbite’ because of the fans, and we want to give them the purest book to film adaptation possible. We have a script by Piers Ashworth [screenwriter of "St. Trinian's"] that does just that. We want to give them exactly what they expect.”

Producer Deepak Nayar agreed, and said that fans so wanted a sequel that they had actually suggested turning to crowdfunding.

“Our financiers were willing to move forward ONLY if we could show them the fans would support us,” Nayar said. “It’s not an exaggeration to say that we would not be here without them.”

If the goal is met, pre-production will begin late this year, the film will shoot in early 2015, and the finished product will hit theaters in late 2015. “Frostbite” will follow Rose (played in “Vampire Academy” by Zoey Deutch) as she continues to protect her best friend, Moroi vampire princess Lissa (Lucy Fry). She will also have a new love interest, “royal bad boy” Adrian.

Though producers have “every intention” of bringing back the original cast (Deutch, Fry, Dominic Sherwood and Gabriel Byrne, to name a few), their return would depend on availability and is not yet confirmed.

Fans have shown their support for the “Vampire Academy” series before, voting it into the final round of this year’s MTV Movie Brawl. Not to mention the more than 32,000 fans who signed a petition in support of a sequel.

Contributors can expect incentives in the form of exclusive updates from the set, St. Vladimir’s Academy apparel and walk-on roles, to name just a few. The month-long campaign will also feature contests and takeovers across the film’s social media platforms.

Fans can follow along through the fundraising and production process via the producers’Twitter account, Facebook page and Instagram throughout the fundraising and production process.
