  • Happy Holidays

    We're taking a little break to spend time with family and friends.  We hope you are too.  January is going to be a fun month for us and we look forward to sharing our plans (and our calendar) with you.  We are looking forward to 2014!

  • Dredging up the past

    As we get ready to embark on our first season, we thought we should take a look back - way back. The stories of The Treasure Chronicles are all inspired by treasures lost in time. Some of the treasures are real, some are fictional, and some inhabit the blurred area  between reality and fiction. 

     

    As time marches on and these fortunes remain hidden, their stories almost become mythical. Their values become inflated. The circumstances of their disappearance become more fantastic. Our stories will focus on having the audience sort through the threads from the past to try to weave together a picture that will allow them to unravel the mystery.

     

    For us, one of the enjoyable aspects of these connections to the past is the opportunity to highlight people, places, and events from those time periods. In our first season, we'll highlight some of the forgotten history of the California Gold Rush. Sometimes, the connections won't be glaringly evident. But we think that challenge will be part of the fun!

     

    As the series proceeds, we would very much like to introduce actual re-creations of some of the events that led to the treasures being lost. Bringing the past back to life isn't a simple feat - nor is it inexpensive. As our audience grows, we intend to interweave those historical pieces into our stories, by showing you clips and re-creations of how the treasures were originally lost.

  • Good things come from lost fortunes

    We had many goals when we set out to create Immagix and The Treasure Chronicles.  Changing the way people interact with television/media, doing something fun, interesting, and different, and perhaps accomplishing some good things with any success that we achieve. 

    The last point is the focus of this entry. The irony of treasure hunting is that the hunter is ultimately attempting to profit from some poor soul's past misfortune. At some point, through deceit, coercion, mishap, or simply bad luck, the one time possessor of these treasures lost them. The impact on the lives of the dispossessed in some cases must have been tremendous.

    While we intend for our stories to be fun, engaging adventures about finding these hidden treasures, we also understand that we are treading on some shaky ground in terms of Karma. In order to set things right with the Universe, it seems like one of the ways we can make this right is by doing some good things with some of the profits we make from The Treasure Chronicles.

    Philanthropy is a part of who we are and we intend to donate a portion of our profits to good causes.  In keeping with our interactive nature, we plan to have our audience help us select the charities. Don't worry, it won't be charity death match.  We'll make sure that our approach to interactive charitable giving is tasteful.  Lots more details to come on this one.  

    Doing good things while doing what we love. Life doesn't get any better than that!
