Cold

<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/23336972″>COLD – TRAILER</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/forge”>Forge Motion Pictures</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

This 19 minute film was a winner at the Banff film fest. We found it on iTunes. It’s a first person account of  a three person winter climb on Gasherbrum II. Looks like it was entirely shot on a headcam but expertly edited and deeply personal. Credit to the cameraman who had to contend with cold, altitude, technical climbing, exhaustion, and his own fears and yet still managed to shoot very good footage under horrendous conditions. It gives a real sense of what it’s like to  do trips in intense and unbroken cold down to -40C. We’re likely to see more films like this as HD equipment becomes cheaper, more rugged and lighter. Well worth a look. GGGG
