Another first, getting to be a SXSW Panelist. I received a Gold Badge for my troubles. We were pretty well-prepared and despite a sync issue at the start of our video presentation (which was thankfully resolved), the event went well. I was grateful to be included as it’s rare for sound folk to participate in such things. Our panel was called “Make a BTS Web Series and Survive“. During one of the production legs of “Rising From Ashes“, a feature-length doc about Team Rwanda, Rwanda’s nascent cycling team, we partnered with Zacuto and they produced a three-part webseries called “bts“. It’s a doc about making docs. We were all characters in it, hence this panel to discuss the collaborative effect that modern media techniques can instill.
