In a future where televisions can broadcast scents, an ordinary man becomes a
part of a sinister experiment when he's lured into a new, interactive cooking show.
Welcome to Aroma-Vision, where our future makes scents!
As we dive into this breakthrough technology, we're thrilled to invite you on this
cinematic journey. However, to fully bring Aroma-Vision to life, there are financial
hurdles that we can only overcome with your support.
WHAT IS AROMA-VISION?
Aroma-Vision is an eerie ten-minute horror film inspired by The Twilight Zone that
follows Fred, a weary security guard that is lured into a game show centered
around a new television that emits scents (akin to Smell-O-Vision). Like the Black
Mirror series, this narrative explores the true dangers of technology and how
easily we are persuaded. Produced entirely by Milwaukee-based artists, this
project is a true labor of love for filmmaking, specifically within the horror and sci-fi genre(s). Think Her (2013) meets The Twilight Zone, a twist of John Hughes’ Weird
Science (1985), and eerie Zathura (2005)-esque vibes with a strong emphasis on special effects.
