In 2014, I work as part of an NBC crew to film Joby Ogwyn's attempt to Wing Suit off Mt. Everest. The event is to broadcast live from the base camp of Mt. Everest in Nepal. I follow Joby's training in the USA for 4 months and then join him on his trek to Everest Base Camp. Tragically on April 18th, an ice avalanche kills 16 sherpa. The climbing season is closed and the event is cancelled.
I stay at base camp with one other crew member to document the aftermath. I film interviews with survivors and the Sherpa as they use this tragedy to fight for more rights. Two weeks after the avalanche, this one-hour documentary airs on Discovery Channel as "Everest Avalanche Tragedy."
