Deathwise is a young nonprofit committed to assist individuals with advance health care directives and other critical plans that reflect personal values and thoughtful decisions for end-of-life care to ensure the later stages of our lives are filled with as much dignity, connection, and positive feeling as possible.

We interviewed nurses and other health care professionals, a chaplain, a geriatric care specialist, an expert on end-of-life planning and ethics from Stanford University’s hospital settings, community leaders, and individuals who recently experienced personal loss.  The discussions were powerful.  I partnered in the design of this initiative.  Next, I shot, edited, and produced a series of thirteen interviews and further edited this content into twenty-eight short video clips to reinforce key themes and discussions.  I then built a YouTube Channel for the campaign.
