Other People’s Treasure

OTHER PEOPLE’S TREASURE is an award-winning screenplay about a magical town in a remote Italian village, where a long lost treasure is discovered.

In January 2015, we ran a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for OTHER PEOPLE’S TREASURE. Although we raised over $100,000, we did not come up with the budget necessary to make this film. We still hope to make it one day…. By filming the lower budget ZILLA & ZOE first, we hope to increase our ability to raise funds for bigger projects in the future.

OTHER PEOPLE’S TREASURE was a semifinalist in the prestigious Nicholl Screenwriting Contest, hosted by the Academy Awards. To learn more about the project, please visit our Kickstarter page at:
