Originally titled "Surviving Death" 

This short film chronicles the Near-Death Experiences of 3 people who were interviewed for the series Consciousness Continues.   

INTERESTING FACTS: This project started out as a college thesis film with the intent of becoming a feature film derived from the 19 hours of interview footage obtained from 11/2012 to 3/2013.  In 2014  1 additional interview was filmed.

This short film was created from the initial footage filmed on 2/9/2013.


Through the years a series outline and transcription of all the interviews was created which is now the companion book. 

And now in post production is the docu-series.  But it all started with this highly acclaimed short film.  Said to be a moving masterpiece in only 12 minutes.



Transcribed interviews based on Season 1 of the Series. If  you just cannot wait for the next episodes you can read everyone's stories laid out in the book.

       A magical, mystical, thin veil of perception separates this world from the other side, and most people reach a point in their lives when they wonder, what happens when we die? Consciousness Continues seeks answers to this mystery through first-hand accounts from people who have died, been resuscitated, and returned with vivid memories of the other side.

       Consciousness Continues addresses more than a morbid curiosity among readers; it also presents the hardships that frequently arise in the wake of an NDE. The survivor is often confronted with skeptical family and friends in a society that dismisses the supernatural or humors it only in the contexts of religion or entertainment. As a result, NDE survivors often experience depression, difficulty adjusting back to life in the here and now, thoughts of suicide, and the metaphysical challenges of straddling a fence between two worlds. In most cases, survivors keep their NDE a secret for fear of being ostracized...until the day they can no longer remain silent.

       Throughout the book, Dr. P.M.H. Atwater, a pioneering researcher on the subject of Near-Death Experience and survivor herself, explicates elements of the survivors’ stories, sharing knowledge and insight gained through her extensive study of NDE.
