Who We Are
We are a group of student filmmakers attending Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, CA. We have a passion for films and the process of filmmaking and we all hope to work in the film and TV industry. "Scent" represents our Spring 2012 advanced filmmaking class project and the first short film for co-producer and director Steve Myles.
About Steve MylesSteve discovered a passion for filmmaking after enrolling in a cinematography and a video production basics class at Saddleback College in order to implement the use of video in his marketing business. He then went on to study TV and film directing (in which he received several awards), screenwriting, acting, film production management, and advanced film production. Everything he's learned up to this point has prepared him for making this film. You can check out some of his work here: http://bit.ly/mS6Txw
Originally written by David A.F. Chase, "Scent" tells the story of
Saul Weitz, a holocaust survivor who becomes blind when he discovers the
existence of vampires at the end of World War II. After the war he
develops an obsession for hunting down ex-Nazis and bringing them to justice,
even in his limited capacity. He has also developed an obsession for
researching and finding the creatures that had a part in him becoming blind.
Fighting off his eminent death, Saul visits an old friend in the hospital and,
during an earthquake, becomes trapped in an elevator with several other
passengers. Due to his heightened sense of smell, Saul discovers that one
of the passengers is not what he claims to be. He is instead one of the
creatures he's been looking for and researching for most of his life.
On the surface this may seem like just a vampire story. In reality, it's the story of how for someone will go for vengeance. Would you become a monster in order to destroy other monsters?
We Need You!
any kind of movie costs money. And making a movie that looks and sounds
good so it won't be looked at as an amateurish attempt at filmmaking costs even
more money. We want this to be the best film it can be, so we need
your contribution to help us fund our budget.
Our budget allows for us to:
- Rent locations where we can shoot
- Build an elevator set in the Saddleback Studios
- Purchase wardrobe and props for the cast
- Obtain film permits
- Rent additional camera equipment
- Rent a U-Haul truck
- Pay for gas and a hotel room for our lead actor
- And feed the cast and crew delicious, hot meals in exchange for them donating their time and working for free on this movie
100% of your contribution (minus Kickstarer fees) goes toward the budget of this film.

A: Yes. Once you donate to our campaign, you may want to change your incentive reward to a different one, or increase your pledge amount. To do so, go to Kickstarter and sign in. If you go to our campaign page, the green “Back This Project” button will have been replaced with a blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Click it and you can enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive.
A: Yes, you can. You just need to have (or set up) an Amazon account. And, of course, we will ship your reward(s) (e.g. DVD, signed script, etc.) internationally.
Since Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing fundraising platform, our initial goal was set low at a level where we confidently felt we could meet Kickstarter's funding restriction. If we didn't hit it, we wouldn't receive any of the funds raised. It was also an amount that we felt would at least cover the minimum cost of making the film.
Our new goal will allow us to hire professional SAG actors, which means getting higher quality actors that will bring the best performances possible to the screen.
