Follow a no bottled oxygen ascent up Mt Everest in VR
Title: Everest – The VR Film Experience
Director: Jonathan Griffith
Format: Stereoscopic 360
Running Time: 11m
On the 30th April 2017 world famous climber Ueli Steck died on Mount Nuptse whilst acclimatising for one of his biggest climbs yet – climbing both Mount Everest and Mount Lhotse without the use of bottled oxygen. A year later, Ueli’s close friends Jon Griffith and Sherpa Tenji attempted to finish off his project. Tenji would try the climb without bottled oxygen whilst internationally award-winning cameraman Griffith captured the story in 8K 3D Ambisonic Audio Virtual Reality. Only 175 people have ever stood on earth’s highest point without the use of bottled oxygen; more people have been in to space than have accomplished this feat. Whilst Sherpa Tenji has already summited Everest without the use of bottled oxygen before, would he have what it takes to do it again? Follow him as he climbs higher and higher into the Death Zone, an area that contains so little oxygen that his body cannot survive for long; it’s a race against time. Join them for one of the most immersive adventure experiences ever captured. Witness what it’s like to be engulfed in a Himalayan avalanche, cross a crevasse and stare deep in its depths, be caught out in a storm, and take in the view from the top of the world.
