Paleo Doc from Out on Exposure Productions LLC
The commercial sale of dinosaur fossils is a deep-seated issue that paleontologists have debated for decades. For academic paleontologists each fossil unravels new information about the past. For commercial collectors the fossils are prehistoric gold. THE NEW EXTINCTION covers the topic from all sides of the issue, while posing a question for the viewing public: Will we value our planet’s historical resources as a means to live or a means to understand our place in the annals of time?.
Our crew spends time exploring museums and their collection labs, researchers home offices, classrooms, and finally following them into the beautiful prairies and rock formations of the American west; capturing the lifestyle of these paleontologists while seeking to understand how everything is connected.
