This video was created for Lane County government in order to share the “Every 15 Minutes” program with schools who might not be able to participate in the full program.
“Every 15 Minutes” helps to bring the tragedy of teen deaths due to driving under the influence of intoxicants, and distracted driving, home to high school students. Several students are chosen as the victims, and are escorted by Death from their classrooms during the school day. A car accident is staged in order to convey the horror and finality of such a tragedy.
The narration in the video was created by taking excerpts from victims’ testimonials which were shared at a presentation to the entire community after the event. Each of the victims had lost loved ones at the hands of drivers who were under the influence of intoxicants.
