Weekly Wednesday Update

By Katie Kreis

Hello, everyone! I’m going to be concise here, because we have a lot of work to do.

This last weekend we finished up interviewing up in St. Paul with Grant’s older daughter, Laurie, her husband and their daughter.

A particularly heartwarming moment for me was showing them the rough draft. We weren’t completely proud of this draft, but seeing them emotional was a nice reminder that this documentary is more than b-roll, audio bites and blog posts. We now fully understand the impact that Grant had on every person he encountered and are under a large amount of pressure to get it right. The standard is set, and we are excited to exceed it.

Other than that, we’ve spent many hours each night working through edits. We invited two professors to review our progress so far, so stay tuned!
