Death. What impact has the internet had on death? Well, that’s more or less the question a new 50-minute Dutch made-for-TV film called “Necrocam” seeks to answer. Mourning Becomes Electronic: A Final Webcast Place takes a look at the film, which tells the story of a group of teenaged friends who pledge to put a webcam inside a coffin. The NY Times article also describes the real-life inspiration for the film (“Mom, when I die, I want a Webcam in my coffin, and I’m serious about it.”), the technical details (the screenwriter received a grant from the Amsterdam Art Foundation to study the feasibility of installing a Webcam in a coffin), the legalities, and just the entertainment value of it all. … One interesting and perhaps obscure point the article raised (almost off-handedly): the growing adoption among funeral homes to add webcasting – so that friends and relatives afield could still “attend” – to their portfolio of services.
