Sometimes you don’t know what you’re looking for until you find it
There she meets Ryan, a volunteer. He shows her the ropes of the soup kitchen and introduces her to the wonders of geocaching. Through new friendships, struggle, betrayal, and the willingness to try new things and make a difference in the world, Erica just might be able to find the meaning of life!
Our hope is to create a film that will capture the wonder, beauty, difficulty, and inspiration found in life and nature. We grow through interaction with others and daring to explore new experiences and places.
Making Treasure happen will be a story unto itself and you can be a part of it!
We’re planning a crowdfunding campaign next spring so that we can get our audience involved in getting the movie made. We’re already pretty lucky to have access to really nice professional cameras and equipment but it’s nice to be able to feed the cast and crew, get permits, and create the perfect setting for every shot in the film too!
We invite you to be a part of this experience. ‘Like’ our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, and tell your friends about it so they can get involved too. We promise to keep you in the loop by making regular updates. We’re already busy working on interviews with cast and crew
What is Geocaching? It’s a game where people hide a log book and other items inside of a weatherproof container somewhere and upload the GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinates to a database on the Internet. Other players can then download the coordinates and use their own GPS-enabled device or smartphone to locate the ‘hidden treasure’.
Geocaching is played by millions of people worldwide and there are currently over 2.2 million geocaches hidden around the globe. Chances are there’s one not far from where you’re reading this!

Marco DiGeorge, Casting Director
From a young age, artwork ranging from music to film to comics have always had a tremendous impact on me. I would connect with a song or a character so deeply that it altered my perception, which in some cases, ultimately changed the course of my life.
When I decided to join the acting (and filmmaking) world, my main motivation was to be able to create art that would touch someone’s life. I wanted to contribute to the pool of art that had already touched mine.
