Most of Cold; an edgy, dark thriller that strips the vampire legend of it’s romanticism, has already been filmed. Funding for the very end of the film and editing is needed to make it to the finish line so we can get it into to a festival near you!

Cold focuses on Serena, a young woman who turns to fantasy to deal with a horribly abusive childhood. She is particularly fascinated with the myth of the powerful, mysterious and irresistible vampire. Serena goes to extreme's to hunt down the secret of the dark kiss. When she finally finds someone whom she is convinced is a vampire, her life begins to spiral out of control. She learns first hand the age old cliche "be careful what you wish for"!

The inception of Cold: After seeing all the vampire movies and shows that were flooding the industry I was overcome with a need to make something completely different. I found the romantic nature that the vampire genre had turned to, to be a contrite take on humanity’s vision of itself. I decided on creating something that stripped the genre of any romanticism and brought to light the stark potential reality of such creatures and such a life. As well as using the vampire aspect of the story more to highlight the depths that a person will go to try and fill the emptiness within themselves.

With your help Cold will hopefully be the first in a very long line of projects to come from Days of Avalon Productions.

All you have to do to experience this story is to make a small contribution!

Contributions will go towards:

1. Finishing the last 3 scenes of the film.

2. DVD Production

3. Film Festival Entry Fees

The funding goal is set fairly low, but every bit above our goal will be a blessing and very helpful!  Any additional money that is gathered will go towards making the film a higher quality production and towards additional film festival entry fees! The more festivals Cold is able to participate in the more the word gets out and the more films we can make in the future! So if Serena’s story really ignites your passion and you would like to contribute a dollar awesome, if you want to contribute more that would be great!
