As 2014 gets underway I have gotten one of those calls that I have worked tirelessly for in my career and much of what I’ve done throughout my years of work has been in dedication to landing this type of gig. Working Title Films & Cross Creek Pictures will be producing the feature film “Everest” based on the well known 1996 tragedy that took place on the mountain and of which Jon Krakauer’s best selling book “Into Thin Air” was based on and I have been asked to head up the 2nd Unit filming which will shoot in both Italy and on Everest itself . “Everest” will be directed by Baltasar Kormakur (2 Guns / Collateral) with Salvatore Totino serving as the 1st Unit DP and will shoot in Nepal, Italy & the UK. I will be shooting the 2nd Unit work in Italy in February and then travel to Nepal in March to continue shooting the 2nd Unit on Sagarmatha herself.
Starring Keira Knightley, Robin Wright, Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke & others “Everest” is now set to release September 18th, 2015.
