Norway’s Original boards ‘Frost’

Pic is debut feature from Barcelona-based Alta Realitat

SITGES, Spain — Norway’s Original Film has taken a minority co-production stake in “The Frost,” the debut feature from Barcelona-based Alta Realitat.

One of the company’s partners, Ferran Audi, wrote the screenplay for “The Frost,” which is a contemporary drama based on an Henrik Ibsen story “Little Eyolf” about the disintegration of a marriage. After the death of their son, a couple reaches the conclusion that they never really loved one other.

Audi presented the project at a pitching session at the Sitges Film Festival of Catalonia.

“The Frost” will shoot mainly in Norwegian and Swedish, lensing on location in Scandinavia from September 2007. Budgeted at Euros 2 million ($2.6 million), the pic is well placed to draw down substantial regional funding from Scandinavia and Catalonia.

Pic marks a rare co-production between Scandinavia and Spain, though past linkups have yielded memorable results, such as Gonzalo Suarez’s “Rowing in the Wind” and Bent Hamer’s “Water Easy Reach.”

Alta Realitat was founded in London in 1998, focusing on dance and legit productions, such as “Ay, Carmela!”

It set up in Barcelona in 2003, continuing to specialize in modern dance theater.
