In 2017 the Brittish outdoor brand Berghaus hosted a competition during the Belgian tour 0f the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Contestants had to answer a number of questions and guess how light a certain jacket was to be able to win a Weekend Alpine Adventure in Chamonix. Two girls and two guys were selected from all these contestants and with Berghaus Guide Pierre Dewit, had the most amazing time in and around Chamonix.
After working on the “Hyper 100 Adventure Review” project earlier that year, we were asked by Berghaus to make two-part video of this amazing weekend and to produce a trailer to be screened during the 2018 Banff Mountain Film Festival Tour.
We had two days of shooting, where we followed the little expedition group over the Mer de Glace on the first and the Glacier du Geant on the second day. The weather circumstances couldn’t have been more different. Day 1 gave us pouring rain, struggling over slippery rocks with low grey light. Day 2 brought bluebird skies, cold alpine winds, snowfields, crevasses and hard light from the sun.
