TV Show Looking for Treasure Hunters
I've given this some thought and would like some feedback from more experienced searchers...especially if you've been filmed. My concern with a camera crew tagging along is this...



What do you do if you end up some place that doesn't allow certain activities....and you find yourself having to perform such an activity. Let's say you're on a trail that is marked "do not leave trail", but you have to in order to search or get to your spot? The same could go for needing to dig...what then? Ask them to turn of the camera so you can step outside the lines? That for me would be the sole reason not to have people along over which you have no control or trust. Just saying...

PL289 - I can tell you from a Television Production perspective, we would never want to film you doing a forbidden activity because that puts us in a compromising position as well. For us to film on any land, we always need permission from the owner in the form of releases, permits, etc. and being involved in any way with one of those activities would essentially null those agreements, making any footage we shot there unusable, besides any legal repercussions. So we would never film you - or even want to be present - if you felt you needed to perform such an activity. I hope that answers your question!

Thx. That helps a lot. Seems like an awful lot of paper trail. If I find it, we'll do a reenactment....lol. That's a big IF by the by

I'm actually struggling with this dilemma: I'm so certain that I'm going to retrieve the TC soon (not trying to convince anyone, just my opinion) that I'm trying to figure out the best way to capture the event on video.



I have a Garmin Virb action camera (like a GoPro but better) that I can attach to my head or shoulder, but will that be good enough?



(Hijacking this thread) If you were certain that you were going to retrieve the TC, what steps would you take to capture the moment?

I do have some questions . you have said any land. Does that include Forest property or BLM land and does that require the same . Permits, permission Etc. If that is the case your preparation time must take awhile . So how much of a pre search time table are you looking at. The places I want to go aren't exactly some place I would want to take a camera crew if only the reason was it is going to make it painstakingly slow and tedious. Trying to get the right shot at the right angle. Also what about wild life not many shots of that. A person has to move silently and into the wind preferably in color coordinated clothing. Any stream or creek you come to a person may get wet . I can see all kinds of hindrances along the way. Thanks (but)???????? Also what about weather related problems Rain storms. lightening. Wind , sleet. and a number of other things .

My mom bought me some sunglasses with a secret camera in them. Look for a pair of those.

Woody Bogg - if it's just public land (not a national or state park) there's usually not a whole big process to go through, BLM land there is a permitting process, so we would need to plan out at least the general area you'd be looking in and get the required paperwork done before we shoot, but since this concept is in the early stages, I can't give an exact time table. However, my company has worked on shows keeping up with guys in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness, so they're pros at not slowing people down, and filming in all weather conditions.
