I Am Ocean creates an interactive bridge across oceans and cultures by casting a light on the health of the world's oceans through video snapshots of the people whose lives are deeply impacted by each ebb and flow.
OMI pairs with international organizations and schools to teach environmental filmmaking workshops where students learn to tap in and use the power of their own voice to tell the story of their personal relationship with the ocean in the midst of a changing climate. Pairing their stories with powerful imagery, we integrate the students' footage into "video postcards" that serve as a direct call to action for stauncher protections of our seas.
These individual postcards act as a piece of a mosaic, each adding to the portrait of our blue planet by illuminating just how intricately entwined each human life is with the health of the ocean and the critical need to protect this fierce, yet fragile environment.
