How was this shot?

'Ne cherchez plus mon coeur, les bêtes l'ont mangé.' Baudelaire


With a camera for the most part.

Working in the movie business since -92


Hi Jill-McBain,
The trek to base camp was shot on the actual feet of Everest; most of the wide shots on the mountain were shot in the Italian Alps, so the maountains, snow and rock were real but augmented with computer graphics; and the close-up shots such as at base camp itself, at the summit and climbing the ladders across the crevasses were shot in a studio with green-screens and computer graphics.

I think visually it's an amazing film.
