In the spirit of the Oscars, we bring you our first video in many, many moons. (Watch our old videos.)
We picked a pretty dark subject for our return to filmmaking (if filmmaking is what you want to call it) but we tried to keep it as light as humanly possible. The subject: the high cost of funerals and the funeral industry’s shady past. We based the video on this post, which we posted last month: “The High Cost of … Dying.”
And it’s just over 2:14 minutes long, so if you get sick of hearing my voiceover, take comfort that it will be over quickly. And the pause button is there for your convenience. Our esteemed graphic designer did the editing, which is clearly the best part of the experience.
Grab your popcorn and enjoy! It’s not quite “Slumdog Millionaire,” but you might just learn something.
