This 25-minute movie illustrates the geologic evolution of Colorado through time, and premiered at the Opening Ceremony of the AAPG Convention in Denver on 31 May 2015. This version has been modified slightly from the version previously shown.

The movie is one portion of a large outreach project in which scientifically accurate animations are created for outreach presentations.

A longer movie is in preparation that is designed for a more general audience. We will post that version as soon as it is finished.
