Extreme Everest with Ant Middleton

Halo took to Everest for a second time this year as it embarked on picture and sound post production for Indie production company, Parable. This time we follow Ex Special Forces Soldier and extreme adventurer Ant Middleton on his lifelong ambition to climb to the summit of the world’s highest mountain.

This single documentary film for Channel 4, directed by survival specialist Ed Wardle follows their attempt to conquer what the Sherpas call the ‘Mother Goddess of the earth’. But as a storm moves in, the descent does not go at all to plan, leaving the two adventurers with a stark reality.

Halo Colourist, Paul Koren explains, ‘Extreme Everest was shot with a two man crew through some of the most extreme conditions on the planet. With that in mind I was impressed with the quality and consistency of camera work which made its way into the film. At times there were issues with colour temperature and visibility, but nothing irretrievable using Nucoda’s array of tools. The fun part was spending time on the beauty shots of Everest. Special care was taken with the control of the blue saturation in the skies to help enhance the drama and give the landscape a Ansel Adams look’.

Exec Producer and Parable CEO, David Wise said “Halo did their customary exemplary work on Extreme Everest – with real passion for their craft and attention to detail – and were a delight throughout”.
