Capturing Everest


Capture a climb of the world’s tallest peak in 360° video and produce an epic VR experience.


8ninths partnered with Madison Mountaineering, Panogs, and Endemol Shine Beyond USA to produce Capturing Everest VR, a groundbreaking VR documentary of a 2016 Everest summit. Using new creative and technical approaches to 360° storytelling, the team captured the authenticity and intensity of the mountain like never before. Capturing Everest VR was launched in May 2017 on Sports Illustrated’s new LIFE VR platform.
