Execution

We created a 360 degree experience centered around our hunt for sunken ships in the treacherous shipping lane of Lake Huron’s Shipwreck Alley. Web-films, online games, exploratory websites, digital advertising, social media and a documentary special provided a multi-faceted way to get involved in the adventure.Our web films and documentary special, which aired on Current TV, chronicled the high-seas ship hunt, starring our five students and their mentor, world renowned oceanic archeologist James Delgado. Partnering with NOAA and Woods-Hole, we used the latest in ocean exploration technology, complimented by our Sony and Intel products. We brought a piece to that experience to users around the globe in our Oceans of Treasure Facebook game. Users navigated the oceans of Google Earth. Thousands set sail to search for the grand prize: $1,000,000 in a chest, sunk deep in our digital sea.
