In 2009 Guy Elson approached one of our producers while on shoot in Canada. Guy presented the idea of a TV series. The series was Rod & Rucksack. Guy employed gass to shoot a pilot for the series in Costa Rica. Later we used the pilot to attract the attention of a co-production partner to produce the series. The pilot programme was actually sold to the USA sports and adventure channel WFN where it broadcast for a year in the USA, Canada and the Caribbean.
