Frostbite Films

Frostbite Films Alaska presents a number of significant opportunities and incentives for filming within the state. We have the most diversified terrain if any place in North America, from the tallest, most scenic mountains on the continent to low lying desert sands; from wild untamed plains to spooky swamps- Alaska has that and everything in between.

You want a smoking crater? We have that. You want glaciers and whales? We even have ice crevasses and of course, plenty of snow. In addition to its spectacular landscape, Alaska offers a fertile ground for screenwriters and story tellers. From glorious ghost stories and Native legends to true tales of horror and heroism, it can all be found in Alaska. To top off these and the many other benefits to filming in Alaska, the state also offers a stellar incentive program that offers up to 44% tax breaks if your production is filmed in Alaska, using an Alaskan crew. We at Frostbite Films will assist your production in taking full advantage of this program. Frostbite is:

Marcus Mooers, CEO, Producer, Advertising Director
Matt Schantzen. VP, Producer, Director
Megan Mooers, Makeup and Costume Director
Nannette Pierson, Documentries, Camera Director Filming in Alaska has a lot of challenges as well. While the unspoiled wilderness is a great place to film, it can also be dangerous, and there is a lot of land out there. At Frostbite we can help make your shots perfect and safe. We can do this because we are Alaskans who know how to live and work in Alaska's unique environment. By using an Alaskan crew who is used to extreme conditions we can save your production a lot of money by getting the shots quickly and safely, without a constant cacophony of complaining. We also specialize in scouting locations.

Still, call us for your film needs, we may be able to help!

Frostbite Films is casting for a short film shooting here in Fairbanks. If you are interested please send resume and headshots to [email protected].

Filming will be in Fairbanks, maybe over one weekend but more likely one day each for two weekends, depending on actors schedules and available daylight/weather. The entire film is outdoors, but cast will be dressed in winter gear. Below are the roles being cast and a brief synopsis of the film.

The Fence is a love story about a boy from the wrong side of the fence who falls for a girl on the other side. There is no dialogue in the film, so no lines to memorize!

Casting for:
AMY 18-25 who comes form a well-to-do family. She falls for PETER slowly, but then she is flirty and smiles a lot. 7 costume changes, all winter clothes, and a large bag (not a backpack).

Peter 18-25 who comes form a less wealthy part of town. A nice guy but guarded, he falls slowly for Amy. He is nice, smiles and laughs. 7 costume changes, although primary will be a hoodie and a backpack.

STRANGER needed only one day, a thief who tries to steal AMY's bag. This role will require running and falling on the ground. Costume is dark pants or blue jeans, dark hoodie.

Team Frostbite's entry for the 2014 Anchorage 48 Hour Film Challenge.

09/11/2014

I have a short film I'd like to shoot soon on no budget. It will take a single night of maybe 10-12 hours. I have no set-in-stone schedule yet. These are the things I need:

1 male role, fit, 20-40, no dialogue required.

1 female role, wearing 'monster make up', 18-30, no dialogue (but some screaming) required.

1 bedroom with a bed and a closet with a swinging door but not mirrored, and a window. Other bedroom dressings a plus (curtains, dresser, etc). We would need access to areas around the bedroom as well (bathroom mostly) to get gear in/out, do make up and costuming, etc. Also parking and what-not. We do need to shoot at night.

Someone who wants to do some scary makeup effects (aged skin, sharp teeth) on the talent

A slider and/or a small jib (if possible)

A couple of PA/grips. It will be a tight set, so I can't fill it with people who aren't doing much work. But if you want to jump on 'costuming' or other areas that I CAN do but am happy to let someone else do, you are welcome to contact me.

If you are an actor/actress interested, please contact me here or at [email protected] and I will send you a script.

If you would like to be on the crew, please contact me here or at [email protected]

Thanks!
