  • “Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate”

    The quote in the title of this post was uttered by the imitable Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean:  The Curse of the Black Pearl. Jack is dead right in his statement. If you've been following us, you’ll have noticed that we've been highlighting lost valuables worth immense fortunes.  Sometimes, however, the value of something can't be measured simply on what it will fetch at auction.  

    That notion will help us address a question we've often been asked:  How will we keep our stories from becoming repetitive?  How many times can you do a treasure hunt before the thrill is gone?  Certainly, we intend to introduce fun and interesting characters, engaging story lines, and obviously, since you will be controlling our stories – the element of uncertainty will always make our stories vastly different than traditional shows.

     However, we also have an ace up our sleeves, tied to the opening quote.  Things of great value may not always be measured in terms of their market price.  The expression that comes to mind:  One person's trash is another person's treasure.  The doors that are opened because of this notion are fun to consider.  Quests for lost puppies?  The search for a lost teddy bear?  You get the idea.  In some cases, the quest for a grand treasure, may in fact turn out to be something vastly difference when the truth is discovered.  That is a big part of the fun of our new media format.  Our stories will never go as anyone expects, not even us - the creators.

  • Lights. Camera. Action!

    We'll be shooting the final scene for the pilot episode this weekend.  Weather is forecast to be perfect - this is an incredible time of year to be filming in Northern California.  We'll be bringing 1850's California back to life this weekend.  Does it get any better than that?

  • Progress!

    As we must account for every idle word, so must we account for every idle silence.  - Benjamin Franklin

    Location scouting

    So here we are accounting for our relative silence the past few weeks.  Rest assured, it has not been an idle silence!  We had an excellent location scout for a future season of The Treasure Chronicles and we already have a very fun story line under development.  We should probably say story lines, as we will never have only one story line in any of our shows.  We have another location scout planned for next week.  Very excited about this one.  It will be in another beautiful, tropical location.  The lost treasure connection for this story will be based upon a mythical  legend more than historical fact.  We'll send some updates from our location scouting.

    Final scene for pilot episode

    We finished casting for our flashback scene we'll be filming on the weekend of May 3/4.  Once again, we were extremely impressed with the pool of acting talent in our area.  We needed two "caballeros" to play Gold Rush Mexican and we couldn't have asked for better in the two young men we found.  We'll be covering their background in upcoming posts.  Once we finish that final scene, we will hurry to get it edited in for the final cut of our pilot episode.

    Premier Event

    All of the major details have been worked out.  Music, fun, cool people, free food and drinks, and a private screening of our first episode.  That is what's in store for those who attend.  We will be opening up some tickets to the public.  Watch for details on how you can score a few.

    Crowd Funding

    Still waiting for our air date from The Crowd Funder Show.  We will be jumping in with all of our collective feet once we get that date.  We absolutely love the idea that you will be able to help us for the cost of a gift card.

    Geocaching Event

    We've been working out some more of the details on this.  We will soon be announcing our "seed" locations and how we might be able to include your location.  This is going to be fun!

    Beta Testing

    We decided to wait until we launch our crowd funding efforts to actually run through our testing process.  This will give you a chance to see how it works live.  Expect that to happen in May.

    More updates coming soon whilst we are on location scouting.  Perhaps you'll be able to figure out where in the World we are!

    Until next time...keep you head down and maybe you'll stumble across something unexpectedly amazing.
