Theatrical Release Feature Documentary for Cinemas and IMAX Theatres. Produced by Altitude Films and presented by Serengeti Entertainment and National Geographic Entertainment.
The film explores the life and loves of George Mallory, the great climber and explorer who died on Mount Everest in 1924. After discovering Mallory’s body on Everest in 1999, modern climber Conrad Anker’s life became intertwined with Mallory’s story. Remarkably, Mallory’s body was found with all his belongings intact. Conrad returns to Everest to discover the truth about this compelling and gilded man from a bygone era and to unravel the mysteries surrounding his disappearance.
ZOO completed over 70 VFX shots. The largest piece of work involved creating a photo-real CG Everest using real world data and stills from the expedition. We were then able to create a flythrough from Base Camp to summit along climbers’ route – something that has never been seen before.
Other work included many live action composites.
