Vampire Academy fans are no doubt biting their nails as they watch the Frostbite crowd funding dollars inch their way up. The production team behind the (hopefully) upcoming Vampire Academy sequel are working around the clock to pull this off, and as a site that blogs about movies based on books, we of course want to help! There are awesome perks to contributing, too. Everything from signed photos to St. Vlad hoodies! If you really want to see this film brought to life, then click here to check out the campaign page. (Remember: If you can’t contribute, then tweet the link to the campaign and/or post it to your Facebook and Tumblr! It helps a lot.) There are 27 days left to raise the $1.5 million goal.

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”.
