Everest 2004: Irish Expedition Update
By now eight
teams have arrived at Base Camp and group dynamics
are getting interesting;
Breashears' group who are shooting location sequences for a big screen
feature film of 'Into Thin Air' for Working Title Productions. All going well,
they hope to have a budget of over 50 million sterling - they estimate the
film will take two years to complete.
2. Discovery channel (Ben
Webster), who are shooting a six part Documentary series on Everest,
They will be dealing with The Sherpa culture, what it is that drives people to
climb this mountain and will also look at the different teams on the mountain
and the effect that high altitude has on climbers. Should be interesting.
Then there's the poor relations!
3 Our own film on The Irish Expedition that we wish to finish this year - our
story of 'Against the Sky'. No money yet but great potential for any investor
that wishes to become involved in the telling of a great story. We'll have the
footage - all we need now is the money!
4 The Spanish,
5 Mexican/ Canadian
7 The singing Greeks and
8 Peak Promotions who will be
endeavoring to have an amputee summit. We will keep you updated on the trials
and tribulations of the climbers as they climb the mountain and bring you
reports direct from campsite to campsite as we push for the summit.
