While most climbers slept, I attempted to capture some of the magic that the Himalayan skies have to offer while climbing to the top of the world. Here's a bit of what I endured at the end to make this possible: http://www.eliasaikaly.com/2013/05/into-the-death-zone/ One of the most rewarding parts of the journey was being able to share it with thousands of students on http://www.findinglife.ca This time lapse video is comprised of thousands of photographs, processed and assembled on Mt. Everest. Music: A Heartbeat away purchased on http://goo.gl/AJZcM I hope you enjoy it. If you do, please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

    • Everest - A Tribute to the Fallen


      from Elia Saikaly Added 105K 1,336 52

      Imagine a 1500 ft tidal wave of snow, rock and debris headed straight towards you. This was our reality on April 25th, 2015 at Mt. Everest basecamp when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake triggered a massive avalanche at Mt. Everest Basecamp that claimed 16 lives and critically injured 50+ men and women. I shot as much as I could before putting the cameras down to help the critically injured and wounded. 16 people lost their lives including my friend Dan Fredinburg - a man who loved life and lived it to the fullest. I did my best as a filmmaker to document the process even though my heart was bleeding from the loss of life. As much as I tried to pretend I was ok, I simply was not. A part of me died that day. I was in shock. For the next 3 days, I documented the rescue efforts from 17,500 ft above sea level. Over 50 people were successfully evacuated and over 70 rescued from high above the mountain. Drained, exhausted and sick from neglecting to take care of myself, I secluded myself in my tent while on Everest and proceeded to edit to the best of my ability, an honest portrayal of the events through our team’s eyes. It took me a long time to ‘feel’ the piece, to select the right music and to establish the correct tone. In the end, I stayed up until 1:27am, 3 days after the Earthquake, completing the edit. My internet upload speed was 21kb/sec, which was incredibly painful. It’s important to remember that this is only a single perspective, many others will have experienced far greater devastation than us. We salute all of the brave men and women who stepped up in the moment to come to the aid of their fellow human beings. It was a herculean effort on the part of hundreds to rescue, recover and evacuate those affected. My heart goes out to my friend Dan Fredinburg, may your soul rest in peace.

              http://eliasaikaly.com For stock footage requests please contact elia@eliasaikaly.com A collection of images shot during a trek to Mt. Everest basecamp. From Kathmandu, the Khumbu valley, up Kalapathar at 18, 000ft to the base of the world's tallest mountain. I was trekking with gear for 6-10hrs a day, without breaks, without time to set up shots or ask the team I was filming to stop. I spent the evenings shooting time-lapse, backing up my footage and processing the images in Lightroom. I was able to do this with the help of my team of porters, Kancha, Samir and the rest of the boys from the lower valley. They're the true heroes of the Himalayas and my work would not be possible with them. They're also the world's most awesome crew! Enjoy! Music by: ES PostHumous Selisona Pi
