WHAT IS FROSTBITE?
"Frostbite" is a documentary about former BMXers and skateboarders sharing their impactful experiences with their sport and passing on their legacy to the next generation. The documentary captures their love and dedication to their sport, the challenges they faced, and the lessons they learned while highlighting the importance of building proper facilities for young riders.
OUR GOALS & OBJECTIVES
The main goal is to give back to our community by telling our story in hopes of getting traction for a new and properly built park that can be enjoyed by the next generations and properly taken care of. We hope to educate and inspire the community to take action by sharing this story.
The main film will be a 4-10 min film to show to city officials, community members, vendors, fundraising, and ideal partners to help us build a new skatepark in the Zanesville community.
The Secondary film will be a 40 min+ mini-documentary as a legacy piece to action sports featuring athletes, community members, and those involved and impacted by action sports. This will be a way to celebrate the sport, its lessons, and how it's shaped a whole culture of individuals.
