Get Your Rocks Off with Houston Wade – Character Portraits

Houston_WaterfallIn September 2013, a crew and cast totaling nine, headed east from Seattle into the desert mountains of Utah.  We were under Houston Wade’s wing, flying by car like a bat out of hell in search of rocks.  We were gem hounding, an ancient practice of our ancestors (and one of Houston’s as well), with the intent of creating a reality pilot television show under the directorial guidance of David Merwin with Merwin Productions.   The premise: All that we cannot grow must be mined.

Based on adventure, education and a host of comedical best friends, we covered the land hunting topaz, garnet, sun stones and the rarest of them all, bixbite.  These are the characters in search of such discoveries, taking family, friends, colleagues and an audience of strangers into the possibilities found within everyone’s backyard.
