In this behind-the-scenes documentary, the Zacuto Films production team traveled to Rwanda to follow director T.C. Johnstone, producer Greg Kwedar and their entire film crew during the last 18-days of filming "Rising From Ashes", a film about Rwanda’s first national cycling team.

This series came about as part of the marketing strategy for Zacuto. The company designs and manufactures film-making equipment and needed a way to promote the brand directly to filmmakers. From 2009-2012 we created a large variety of original content that filmmakers would be interested in watching. "BTS: a web series" was part of that original content push and gave an insiders look at the difficulties of producing documentary content in a foreign country.
