This documentary short / PSA was aimed toward addressing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic that has shaken the world. It acknowledges the differing perspectives of mask wearing but encourages the use of it to lessen the curve. I was able to interview 3 people that were comfortable with sharing their experiences and opinions; one being via Zoom because she wasn't comfortable with meeting in person given that she's on the front-lines as a registered nurse. The other two are essential workers in spiritual services and education. Despite working in different industries, this video aims to connect these people to the greater goal; getting through the pandemic with empathy.
