  • Eye to Eye with Everest
  • ‘Eye to Eye with Everest’ (Award for Best Film at Swiss Mountain Film Festival 2013, nominated for Best Camera and Best Film at International Mountain & Adventure Film festival Graz 2013) is a film about two cameramen who are asked to film a Mount Everest expedition by German mountaineer Thomas Weber; a man wishing to climb Everest in spite of his visual handicap. For cameramen Milan Collin (deepeei’s co-founder) and Kevin Augello this is a dream come true. In the first weeks Milan and Kevin are confronted with their own physical limitations. Surrounded by people who are prepared to die for their dream, giving up is not an option. During the expedition friendships are built but at the same time, they are competitors. Then the unexpected happens. In the isolated environment Milan and Kevin turn the camera on each other. This daring decision to incorporate a crucial current event (death of the expedition leader) into the script is the same flexible and explorative approach.
