You Can Help Make ‘Lost Treasure of the Valley’ a Reality

Lost Treasure of the Valley

We don’t often highlight Kickstarter campaigns here at FanboyNation, but every once in a while we’ll make an exception. This is one of those exceptions. Writer-director Robert Husted‘s Lost Treasure of the Valley looks to be a wildly original adventure set in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California. Intrigued by the number of loose shopping carts scattered around the Valley, Husted has crafted a story that sees a photographer (played by All That‘s Lori Beth Denberg) who encounters an Indiana Jones-like adventurer (played by Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego‘s Greg Lee) that will see them piece together clues for a long lost treasure buried within a hidden temple on Sepulveda Blvd.

The video notes a number of influences that certainly pique my interest, citing an intention to blend Calvin & Hobbes with Sergio Leone and a touch of the gritty Los Angeles of Repo Man. That sounds like an ambitious and interesting formula for a modern Los Angeles adventure.

There’s just under a month to help Husted and company reach their $10,000 goal, and they’re more than halfway there. Check out their Kickstarter page to see if Lost Treasure of the Valley is a project you might want to help come to fruition.

Here’s a rundown of Lost Treasure of the Valley from their Kickstarter page:

In LA’s sunny San Fernando Valley, you can find reasonable accommodations, friendly people, a short commute to Hollywood – and a never-ending series of abandoned shopping carts dotting the landscape (seriously, it’s really cool!). But what if these carts weren’t actually abandoned? What if they were carefully placed by some sort of higher power so that they added up to coordinates on a map, pointing the way to a hidden treasure in a secret temple, protected by a Guardian and a Monster Bird? And what if two guys – a regular kid obsessed with shopping cart photography, and a hard-bitten, embattled Adventurer (GREG LEE of “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego”) went treasure-hunting for it, all because the kid photographer owes his roommate (L.B. DENBERG of Nickelodeon’s “All That”) a crazy amount of back rent, and she’s had it up to here? And if what if you combined all of that into an urban-magical-realism comedy along the lines of 80s Cult Favorites such as Repo Man, crossed with a Sergio Leone landscape and with a dash of Calvin and Hobbes whimsy? You’d have “Lost Treasure of the Valley”, an insane concoction that needs YOUR HELP!
