KATIE: What is your role on the team?
Madison: Project manager. Basically, I oversee everything that happens within the group. I’m an overhaul editor and get-your-stuff-done-er.

Is it what you expected?
It’s been a big learning curve. Walking in, I knew this would be a big project, but I did not realize how important it is to have the position of project manager. I really am responsible for every small task that gets accomplished. I’ve made mistakes but I’m learning a lot, and we’re only getting better.

What do you want to do after graduation?
I decided that I’m not going to grad school right away because I want to gain experience. I’m looking to utilize my writing ability, communication, service and leadership passions. I want to stay in the Cedar Valley and I’m also getting married!

What’s your favorite part of creating this documentary?
It’s really fun to learn and grow. It sounds cheesy, but it’s very good for us to fail and make mistakes now, so that when we get real jobs we’re fully prepared for everything. Working with people you wouldn’t work with every day is a good experience, too. I’m proud of everybody, and everybody’s done really good job of stepping up when things don’t go right and being upbeat when things do go right. I’m really, really excited to see the life of Grant Price get documented
