Well today my friends I come to with the need to share some news and have that news shared by as many of you as humanly possible.
The producers who turned the beloved Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, into a not so beloved movie are seeking fan support and funding to turn the next book into a movie as well. They are aiming to raise $1,500,000 in fan funding by september 5th to prove that people want them to make the movie.
While support for the movie was well on target for the first two or three days, support has drastically dropped and it doesn’t really take that great big of a guess as to why. I think we all know that most people who enjoyed the books so much, were not such fans of the movie. I myself really really really tried to like it but they just tried too hard to make it funny or did things that were not needed at all that it really did put me off.
So if I didn’t like the first one why am I trying to spread the word of the fundraiser and gain support for the next book?
Because I want to believe the next one will be better.
I cannot promise the next movie will be any better than the first. Just from the brief clip at the end of the first movie you can see that things have already been changed from what we know as readers. However, just from the clip they have on the fundraising sight, and all the attention that they seem to be giving fans and the communication they are doing, I so badly wish to believe that they have learnt what they did wrong the first time round and now understand what way they should take the series.
While I am worried, so worried, that they may mar another book by producing a movie that was not up to par, I am willing to take that chance to see if my faith in the producers is worth it. I am willing to pay for that chance. I have already donated $150 and plan on doing more when I get paid next. I want to see what they do. I want to see Adrian! Don’t you guys?
I know many of you lost faith after the last one and have left the movie series and moved onto other things, giving it up for a lost cause. But we fans need you to come back and have that faith with me and the other supporters. They wont even try to do better if we can’t show them we want them to.
Donating doesn’t have to be ‘a waste of money either.’ You can pick a pack and get goodies for your money. If the money isn’t raised you shall get a refund and it will be like the whole thing never happened.
But we want it to, so give it ago. If enough people just donate $5 each we can reach our goal. So give it a chance to be better.
