The Lost Treasure Hunt

Production of a 30-minute pilot television program, "Christopher Columbus: The Mystery of the Santa Maria," and an accompanying interactive website. This would be the first program of a 13-part series entitled "The Lost Treasure Hunt."

"Lost Treasure Hunt" is an educational television project that will explore topics in history and the humanities by using a unique combination of live-action documentary and animation. Bringing together nationally-recognized scholars and educators with an experienced animation creative team, the "Lost Treasure Hunt" pilot episode and website will introduce children to historical subjects and explore multicultural topics in a style that is relevant to a young audience confronted with many media choices."
