Madison has been known to chase mushroom hunters through Montana forests, chat with doomsday preppers and crazy cat ladies, deeply ponder the implications of self-transcendence, and explore many other absurdities for the sake of film. She attributes her most valuable educational experiences to experiential learning and loves to immerse herself in other worlds and cultures. As a result, she is particularly interested in how filmmaking can be used as a creative medium to explore the extraordinary ways humans interact with their environments, the strange and beautiful, and how it can help people rediscover their childlike curiosity about the world.
Madison is a co-founder/producer at Nestbox Collective, currently in production on a film about the future of the critically endangered red wolf in the U.S. and also holds a Master’s of Fine Arts in Science & Natural History Filmmaking. Madison’s last film Fungiphilia Rising is currently screening at festivals throughout the U.S. and is featured on National Geographic’s “Short Film Showcase.” She is originally from the Bay Area, California but is presently based in Bozeman, Montana.
