When to Die was directed and produced by Justin Miller and John Paul Pacelli, lifelong friends since grade school - a friendship forged over a shared passion for a film. In 2010, Miller graduated from Purdue University with a BS in Sales Management and a BA in English; Pacelli, a Masters Degree in Architecture from Tulane University. After fives years in their designated fields, Miller and Pacelli began to pursue their lifelong interest in film when they founded their own production company, Old Glory Productions. When to Die is the duo's production and directorial debut.
The production team consists of various contributors who have worked with Old Glory Productions since When to Die's conception in 2012.
