  British Army Everest Expedition - Nepal:

In a team with Claudio von Planta I filmed and edited 30 short videos about 8 junior soldiers tackling several high altitude climbs in the Himalayas.

On a daily basis we uploaded these clips to an Army website and managed to operate in snow blizzards , at sub-zero temperatures and at altitudes of up to 5600m.
