Senior Motion Picture Arts student Luke Broyles has received a $500 grant from the Traverse City community storytelling event, Fulfillament.
According to a feature in the Traverse City Record Eagle, Broyles will use the grant to create a documentary film about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
“I’ve been wanting to make this film for a while,” Broyles told the Record Eagle. “My grandfather had dementia. It’s also something that a lot of people can relate to.”
Broyles’s goal is to use the film to explore the emotional toll that these illnesses have on those suffering from them, as as the impact upon their loved ones. The film will begin production in early 2018 and has a tentative completion date of May 2018.
