Asheville Native Helps Remake History

The much anticipated Oscar nominations came out Thursday morning with "Lincoln" leading the pack with 12 nominations.
24-year-old Chelsea Madison is an Asheville native and resident who was there in the middle of it all. She'd just finished work on the "Hunger Games" and drove straight from one move shoot in North Carolina to another in Virginia.
The special effects buyer helped bring Lincoln's fight for the 13th amendment to the screen. She says it was thrilling as the nominations were announced.
Chelsea worked with atmospherics, which included everything from smoke to blood spatter on the action side of the film.
