À propos

My Mission: You may have heard of the Oak Island mystery, where they have never found anything of consequence. Well, located to the East of Oak Island, there was a real treasure hunt and it was successful! This is the real deal!

I have self-financed this documentary, to preserve an important moment in Canadian history, and prevent this history from being lost. Now, I am asking the public to take part in preserving this history, by helping me master the documentary to DVD.

                                                                      ******************

About the Film: This documentary tells the true story of three men, led by Alex Storm. With nothing more than scuba gear and a small fishing boat, they search for the mysterious transport ship, Le Chameau (Pronounced: Sha-moe). Rumoured to be carrying the entire annual budget for the city of Quebec, Le Chameau shipwrecked off the coast of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in 1725. No one has ever succeeded in determining exactly where her bounty dwells in the ocean depths. Despite the odds, Alex and his companions fight icy waters, powerful riptides, and jagged rocks to solve a mystery that after two centuries has become lost in myth and legend. 

The final film will be 67 minutes of exclusive original footage and photo's from the actual Treasure Hunt, animation, reenactments, and exclusive interviews with Alex Storm, the leader of the expedition. Please note: Parts of the film are not HD.

The video documentary perfectly compliments my dad's book.

About the Book: Here is true 224 page Canadian adventure told in the words of the diver who led his team to some famous treasure finds. Fascinating original accounts retrieved from the pages of sea borne logbooks and blended with historical research reveal for the first time the stories of treasures found in Cape Breton.

The First story in the book: The Chameau story has never been told in this detail before. Exciting new material relates how the French pay ship was lost off Louisbourg in August 1725 after striking a reef in the darkness. With no survivors, an entire annual budget in silver and gold was also lost in the storm wracked ship. Discovered in 1965 after years of searching, Storm explains how he and his companions finally located the ancient coins hidden deep under the ocean at the bottom of rocky crevasses. With the gold in near perfect condition, thousands of the salvaged coins were later auctioned off in New York.

The Second story in the book: The story of the frigate Feversham is also narrated here for the first time. Lost off Scatarie Island during a gale in October 1711, ninety people drowned while forty six survived. With the wreck’s discovery in 1968, Storm and his team were able to recover a large number of coins that included the largest hoard of American colonial pieces ever found, as well as British, Dutch and Spanish specie. This chapter is a fascinating read for those who take delight in tales of treasure. Of particular interest to numismatists are the many pictures of the recovered coins. The well illustrated book also contains exciting accounts and documented facts on ships and treasures still waiting to be found, some in shallow water from St. Paul to Scatarie, and some scattered along beaches from Louisbourg to Point Michaud. The yet-to-be-found riches include the Sovereign, Tilbury, St. Michael and a mystery galleon believed to be the King’s ship Triton. With maps, photos, diaries, and drawings, Alex Storm’s adventures come alive again.

The Third story in the book: The remarkable chronicle of the Great Louisbourg Treasure of 1758 rivals the fabled Oak Island money pit in Mahone Bay. Isolated by the Atlantic Ocean and months away from help, Fortress Louisbourg was twice besieged and captured along with a naval squadron destroyed and sunk in 1758. Just days before surrender a vast treasure vanished from the Louisbourg exchequer. Lost without trace, the affair roused the ire of the Court in France where a rigorous inquiry was ordered... A visit to Cape Breton’s historic Louisbourg will never be the same after learning of the conspiracy and drama surrounding the lost fortune in silver and gold. Cunningly hidden in battle, the treasure still beckons from its secret cache-vault...

About the LIMITED EDITION Reproduction coins: These coins are reproductions of silver coins found on the 1725 shipwreck for the King's Transport, Le Chameau, which ran on a reef and sank off Louisbourg with the loss of 316 people. This coin, a silver ecu of France, was valued at 4 Livres, the approximate equivalent of 3 days wages for a carpenter at that time.

A little about me, the writer/producer of Canada's Greatest Treasure Hunt: My name is Julian Storm. I am the youngest son of Alex Storm. I have always had an interest in film making and animation. As with most aspiring artists, I am held back by the high costs of filmmaking.

Fortunately, my dad already had a wealth of old footage, photo's, and had written a book about his adventures. With this, I filled in the missing pieces and created an amateur documentary.  

I am hoping that this kickstarter will fund the Final stage of this production. The mastering of the film to dvd.  

If successful, this will give the public a chance to see and preserve this important moment in Canadian history.
