Deadman's Curse


I'm looking forward to this one!


Deadman's Curse was a show I worked on earlier this year for the History Channel. It's an exciting, province-trekking adventure looking for treasure, what could be better?!


As well as filming underwater using RED cameras, I trained the cast to use full-face masks while diving, something my career as a Commercial Diving Instructor had me well prepared for. I also operated the ROV seen in the trailer above.


It was a fun and adventurous shoot, with a really enjoyable and energetic crew. As for my share of the treasure...


“Deadman’s Curse” features former MMA fighter Kru Pitt and young Indigenous explorer Taylor Starr, who seek out the help of seasoned treasure hunter and mountaineer Adam Palmer to finally solve the mystery of Slumach’s lost gold mine. Hidden somewhere in the rugged terrain of the Pacific Northwest, its mysterious location has eluded prospectors for generations — and many have lost their lives searching for it. The treasure-hunting threesome may have ancestral connections to the legend and the gold, but extreme weather, unforgiving terrain and a curse all stand in their way.
