Episode 13 - Jeremy Ervine - documentary filmmaker - producer FADE TO BLACK

Our guest today is Jeremy Ervine. Jeremy is an Australian film producer whose latest project is Fade to Black, a documentary featuring former Shell / Coles Express CEO, Peter Short, a fellow Australian who died of oesophageal cancer in 2014.

The purpose of Jeremy’s documentary was to open up a conversation about dying and allow people to see the arguments for and against and make up their own mind about whether they supported the assisted dying legislation. Jeremy shot over a hundred hours of footage and interviewed dozens of people for his documentary.

Please donate any amount you can to help Jeremy complete his documentary, which is currently in post-production, by contacting Jeremy through the film’s Facebook Page @fadetoblackdoco.
