The CACHE Project began the way any documentary project begins, with haste. It all began with a summer workshop program at NUTV, a University of Calgary on campus production studio. During the summer of 2011 Rueben Tschetter tackled 21st Century Farmer as the final step in completion of the workshop. To ensure the challenge of filmmaking was properly understood, he also wrote and performed the music for this film. Several short films followed thereafter, exploring the theme of rural Western Canadian culture.
