Hellfire Club Studio is accepting video submissions for Vampires: Rise of the Fallen to begin filming in April.

"Michelle is a typical high school student until one night she is bitten by a strange animal while running in the woods. Her best friend tries to help her understand the changes she's going through, as she becomes a Vampire. Challenged by immortality and hunted by a group obsessed with fulfilling a prophecy about the end times, Michelle finds solace in a brood of Vampires whom she can't figure out if they are trying to help her or kill her. The fight is on! Will it be Immortality or Humanity? Tonight the destiny of one of these races will change forever."

Virgin Mobile Freefest is based on the premise of giving back to the community.  Though it is basically a free music festival they do take donations and accept volunteer work.  In the past two years they have raised $300,000 for youth homelessness, had 55,000 hours of volunteer time, and created 10,000 outreach kits.  Donations help secure outreach services and shelter for homeless youth through their RE*Generation program.

As of this writing all of the free tickets are free'd out but there are still a couple of ways to get them.  One is to be a volunteer.  Virgin Mobile has partnered with homeless youth organizations across the country that need your support.  The other way is to purchase a Fan E-Pak.  This includes a ticket, a donation to youth homelessness,  a limited edition festival t-shirt, early admission to the festival, and a souvenir cup that comes with a $1 discount on domestic draft beer  and fountain sodas at the festival.

  • The Black Keys
  • Deadmau5
