The Young and the Dead
Tyler Cassity oversees a legendary cemetery, "Hollywood Forever," which shares land with the Paramount Studios lot. The dearly departed in Tyler's cemetery (also known as the Hollywood Memorial Cemetery) range from everyday Los Angeles denizens, to the likes of Hollywood royalty -- Rudolph Valentino, Eleanor Powell, and Mel Blanc -- to name a few. Most importantly, his philosophy is unique to many who hold his same profession. Whereas most cemeterians' work involves memorializing the dead, Tyler's takes on a whole new outlook on his duties: rather than simply memorializing, he, instead, immortalizes the lives of the dead for those who are left behind. This is achieved through the packaging and broadcast of a 15-minute video about the recently departed, which is prepared by Tyler and his group of friends who run this cemetary. It offers its customers the same opportunity that movies provide for its stars -- a chance to be immortal, remembered through the use of image and technology.
