I did my best under extraordinary circumstances to produce a short piece told through the eyes of our team. No one man filmmaker can accurately portray the heroic acts of bravery on the part of the hundreds who stepped up and helped their fellow climbers. I did the best I could with what I had to tell our little story honestly and with integrity. So many heroes that day from climbers, Sherpas, doctors, heli pilots and guides. A monumental rescue and recovery effort. Please know there were hundreds of stories like ours that day, this is simply our perspective. Many endure much much worse and our hearts are with them. It is with deep respect for the injured and deceased that I share this video. Edited and shot at 17, 500ft. My deepest condolences to all of the families who have lost loved ones.
