per month


A Million Bones of Stone is a video series exploring paleontology--from discoveries, theories and news to in depth profiles and short historical documentaries. We are committed to creating high quality ad-free video products for YouTube in the spirit of open education . . . and your patronage helps us do so.  By supporting us, you not only support our YouTube Channel and bring pro-science education to the world, but you also enable college internships that give young people valuable professional experience. 

Here is a more detailed look at what we are creating:

  • Our basic offering each month is a news review of the previous month. It will keep you up to date on the most recent and exciting discoveries.
  • We also plan video specials, short videos with a special focus
  • As we grow, we will also offer "Inside Paleontology," short films that explore the best of what the science has to offer.
  • Finally, we will produce short, in depth documentaries on the history of paleontology, revealing stories and details rarely recounted. For an example, you can check out our first one, Leaping Lizards.
A Million Bones of Stone (AMBOS) comes from Horse Archer Productions in Radford, Virginia, a company that's produced everything from award winning feature documentaries to 30 second car commercials, from nationally broadcast music shows to retro-revival horror host shows recorded before a live audience. We can be found at www.horsearcherpro.com.
$0 of $100 per month
When we get to $100 a month, we’ll produce and release our second special, this time, on the Twistum dinosaur toy, "Old Timer." It was the first known dinosaur toy and movie tie in product.
