    Default A new take on the Beale cipher

    The Thomas Beale Cipher: A Short Film by Andrew Allen
    A new take on an old case ... The Beale cipher. Wait! Read on!

    "Using pioneering animation techniques to create a look never seen on film before, this 10-minute award-winning film tells the true legend of history's most challenging cipher.

    Professor White, cryptographer extraordinaire, is on the trail of the notoriously uncrackable Thomas Beale cipher—a century-old riddle hiding the location of a fortune in gold that has tormented its pursuers since inception. But White is not alone—shadowy forces are tight on his tail.
    The film contains 16 hidden messages that hold clues to the characters' secrets. Eight are fairly easy and require only a close eye. Six are moderately difficult using various encryption methods. Two are extremely difficult and will require a genius mind to decrypt."

    It's a great (award winning) film, and a fun hunt. No prize ... but fun anyway!

    If anyone else has transcribed the hidden numbers and wants to swap transcripts, let me know. I'd appreciate the proof reading.

    And no, applying the Declaration of Independence book cipher used in Beale 2 doesn't seem to help at all.
