Hey guys and gals -

I'm looking for a good tutorial or piece of inspiration for putting together title cards and ending credits that appear like they are frozen or frosty. It's for a short film (action/espionage) that takes place in Antarctica - any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, if anyone has any better ideas for that kind of movie, please don't hesitate to say so :)

I have used this in the past with a logo.

Good Luck.

This tutorial gives some color suggestions and ideas to have that frosty puff of cold air. It might point you in the right direction.
This one covers freezing a scene outdoors.
Both of them should give you some good tips, but you want just titles not working with footage so think about what makes you think of ice. Sparkling, blue, can you get that in AE?
Well, this custom search turns up a lot including some free project files.
Also, I thought of this tutorial. You could make it look like your titles are sitting on a reflective ice shelf.
And this tutorial kinda looks like glass or ice.
