Seb has returned to Everest this spring to accompany Kilian Jornet on the last part of his Summits of My Life project. The small team are based on the north side of the mountain with Kilian planning to attempt a fast ascent and descent. Seb is filming the expedition for the film that will complete the Summits series. Expedition updates are posted on Kilian's & Summits Facebook channels.
We were thrilled to learn that some of our films were used as reference by producers of the BBC Planet Earth II series. In a presentation at Kendal Mountain Festival, producers Emma Brennand and Justin Anderson explained how adventure films including Petit Bus Rouge and A Fine Line had served as valuable reference material when planning how to shoot the current series.
Aesthetica - the Bafta recognised short film festival in York, England has selected Back to the Fjords as part of their 2016 selection. The film will screen several times over the 4 day event, in the Documentary 6 programme. We're excited for the film to reach a wider audience at such a fantastic event. See www.asff.co.uk for event details.
Sebastien, Vivian, Jordi & Kilian have returned from Everest after spending several weeks on the north side of the peak. They were unable to reach the summit during their stay, but reached their highest altitudes so far on the project. Coming back with a new wealth of experiences and images, the team completed a couple of steep ski descents and climbs on surrounding peaks.
This fantastic new 5 star hotel in Val Thorens is run by the family of one of the resort's pioneers. With a tradition of excellent service and family values, we were excited to be asked to create a visual identity for the hotel with a film that showed all aspects of the 5 star experience.
Tanc' nous a quitté.
Je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de rencontrer des visionnaires surdoués comme cet oiseau là bien souvent. 2 ou 3 peut être... Le clown blanc a glissé sur une peau de banane. On n'est pas prêt te t'oublier Tanc', tu nous as bien trop fait rêver! The show must go on les Flying Frenchies. Salut l' Artiste!
Tanc has gone.
Such a talented and visionary bird is a rare breed… He didn’t fall trying a complicated move - the clown slipped on a banana skin… one of those sneaky things you can’t see coming. Clipping the wings of our most brilliant bird. Tanc, we won't forget you - you showed us how to make our dreams come true. Salut l’artiste.
