"Bryce's Story" - A Documentary Film

"Bryce's Story" is an award winning documentary short that I directed in 2013. 
Bryce Madsen is an amazingly bright, infectious child who was born with a form of muscular dystrophy called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). He's confined to a wheelchair and is slowly losing his motor skills just as his dreams for his future are peaking. SMA is a degenerative genetic disease that inhibits the body's ability to produce muscle. SMA is also terminal. Most children diagnosed with SMA die before they reach two years of age. In this documentary short, Bryce and his parents Kelly and Dan show us what it's like to live with SMA and care for someone stricken with this terrible disease. The film focuses on showing the world from Bryce's point of view and hearing him tell his story in his own words.
