Hey Oklahoma City - Join us in Tulsa to see SHARKWATER the movie.

WHAT: Sharkwater - The Truth Will Surface (http://www.sharkwater.com) an internationally award-winning documentary movie.
WHEN: Jan. 25 thru 31, 2008 (hopefully longer if the movie is well attended!)
WHERE: AMC Southroads 20 theater in Tulsa, located at 41st Street & Yale Ave.

Newsflash as of Fri 4-Jan.:
The AMC Theatre received Trailers for Sharkwater today! Watch for the previews if you go to see any other movies at AMC over the next few weeks!
:smilie40:

Also, the "Coming Soon" posters are up in the AMC Theater, and at the Oklahoma Aquarium and Tulsa's dive shops, Poseidon Adventures and Dive Site.

I also met with 3 folks over at the Oklahoma Aquarium (http://www.okaquarium.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=91&Itemid=707), and they are very enthusiastic and will cross-promote the movie with their members and visitors to the Aquarium this month! Follow that link to see cool video of their Shark Tank exhibit - "The Oklahoma Aquarium cares for the largest bull sharks in captivity in the world! Their home is shared with large lemon sharks in our one-of-a-kind tank, complete with seamless-view shark tunnel and dome for optimum viewing."

Update as of Wed 26-Dec.:

Some new information about the showing of Sharkwater (http://www.sharkwater.com) at the AMC Theatres Southroads 20 (http://www.moviewatcher.com/theatres/theatre_information.jsp?unit=143) in Tulsa!

I spoke with Jason, one of the managers at AMC, who said Sharkwater will get at least a 7-day run (from Friday Jan. 25th thru Thursday Jan. 31st). It could run longer than that, if it makes a profit - so "butts in seats" folks! I'd really like it still to be showing upon my return from Hawai'i just a day or 2 after that! He said there is a good chance, because January is typically a slow month for movies - so hopefully no blockbusters being released that would push Sharkwater out of the theater.

Jason also told me that they will be putting up the Sharkwater posters in the theater soon, and if their are trailers available, they will start showing those too.

Thanks again to all of you for spreading the word and encouraging your friends and family to come see the movie - not just for the gorgeous underwater dive footage, but also to help educate ourselves about what is happening to the shark populations world-wide.

Neat - the Distributors of the Sharkwater (http://www.sharkwater.com) movie sent me 5 full-size movie posters to help promote our grass-roots effort for a good turn-out. I plan to take one to both of Tulsa's dive gear stores, and hopefully talk the folks over at the Oklahoma Aquarium to put up the rest!

Happy New Year everyone!
Cheers!
Richard

INCREDIBLE NEWS! R.S.V.P. urgently requested!

Rob Stewart, filmmaker of the Sharkwater (http://www.sharkwater.com/) documentary movie, is coming to Tulsa!

In cooperation with the Oklahoma Aquarium (http://www.okaquarium.org/), Rob is offering to host a special educational session about sharks and his work on this documentary film, to be held on Tuesday evening, Jan. 22nd at 7:00 PM.

The Aquarium will offer 2-for-1 admission for this very special event.

Please R.S.V.P. right away by e-mail to Karen Dills, Community Education Manager at the Oklahoma Aquarium: education@okaquarium.org

I think this is an fantastic opportunity for local divers - everything I've read about Rob is that he is an extraordinary young man, an excellent public speaker, and obviously impassioned about sharks and their dire situation. Plus, what a bonus to meet him in person, right before the Sharkwater movie is shown in Tulsa! (January 25 - 31, at AMC Southroads)

Please call the Aquarium if you have questions:
(918) 296-FISH (3474)

The Oklahoma Aquarium is located at:
300 Aquarium Drive
Jenks, Oklahoma 74037
(Just across the 96th Street bridge on the Arkansas River)

Also, Rob will host some educational sessions on Wed. 23rd at local schools.

AND...

Tulsa's local ABC television station, Channel 8 - KTUL (http://www.ktul.com/) is going to do an interview segment with Rob Stewart that will air on Thursday, January 24th, between 9:00AM - 10:00AM on the Good Day Tulsa show. One of their news anchors, Kristin Dickerson, is a scuba diver, and has done some special reports in cooperation with the Oklahoma Aquarium in the past on coral reefs, etc. So Karen at the Aquarium has coordinated with Sharkwater Productions' public relations team and the folks at Channel 8 to put all this together.

I'd like to offer a HUGE thank-you to everyone who has helped bring Sharkwater AND Rob Stewart to Tulsa... :smiley32:

Rob Stewart - Sharkwater Filmmaker - one person CAN make a difference!
Karen Dills - Oklahoma Aquarium
Tyler MacLeod and Ines Wilhelm - Sharkwater Productions
Randy Slaughter - Rocky Mountain Pictures (distributor)
Jason & Donna - AMC Southroads theater managers
And of course all the divers from Tulsa Aquanauts, OKC's Dirty Water Dive Society, and ScubaToys Forum who's enthusiasm kept us motivated - grass roots at it's best! :smiley20:

I just spoke with Karen Dills at the Aquarium:

Rob Stewart's trip is confirmed! Rob is coming to Tulsa and will be at the Aquarium tomorrow night Tues. Jan. 22nd at 7:00PM for the educational presentation as planned.

See you there!

Rob will also be visiting a few area schools on Wednesday to for sessions with school kids, and will have a couple of interviews on television (Channel 8/ABC, and I think Karen said also Channel 2?)
