In 2014, the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative released a Request for Proposals to create a documentary film to share critical GoMRI research findings. Through a competitive review process, Screenscope, Inc. was selected to create Dispatches from the Gulf, the 14th episode in Screenscope’s award-winning television series Journey to Planet Earth. The relationship between GoMRI and Screenscope led to two additional documentary length films, Dispatches from the Gulf-2 and –3, over 100 short videos, and a podcast series called GulfCast. Educational resources and information on how to receive digital streaming versions of the films can be found on the Dispatches from the Gulf website.
The three documentary length films are available on YouTube:
