RockHounds: The Movie to be a Part of the OK Rocks! Exhibit at the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History

  For Immediate Release (Hi res Images Available on Request)

  Norman , OK The new OK Rocks! exhibit at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History includes a little something extra.  Visitors to the museum can now see a short version of RockHounds: The Movie as a part of the exhibit.

  RockHounds: The Movie is a documentary film from Explorer Multimedia Inc. that showcases the fun, adventure and science behind the hobby of gem & mineral collecting.  The short version that is playing at the museum features digs for quartz crystal, fossils and the famous Oklahoma barite rose rocks.

  Rose rocks are also an integral part of the OK Rocks! exhibit which is the brainchild of OU geology professor David London who appears in the film.  Also appearing is Executive Producer and OU geology student Devin Dennie.

  We are very excited to be a part of the OK Rocks! exhibit, said Dennie, Since a lot of the film was shot in and around Norman its a great fit.  Short scientific segments for the film, hosted by Dennie, were shot in one of the laboratories in the OU Geology Department and give fun explanations and facts about the rocks featured in the film.

  For more information about RockHounds: The Movie please visit  RockHounds: The Movie was an official Selection of SCINEMA 05 Festival of Science Film and will continue to screen at film festivals and gem & mineral shows including the 2006 Tucson Gem & Mineral Show.
