Project Overview

The Messenger

Jamyang is an actor and also recognized as an activist advocating environment and climate change awareness. This project is to travel to the Everest Base Camp and collect the melting glacier in a plastic bottle and present it to the COP 2 Summit in Dubai later this year. Jamyang had cycled from Bhutan to Everest Base Camp followed by his camera crew. Himalayan Fixer was responsible for all the legal support in terms of filming throughout the journey.

The plan was to start filming from the Border of Nepal at Kakarvitta and travel to Kathmandu and from Kathmandu to the Everest Region. The major challenge was to acquire all the necessary permits under two weeks and manage swift customs clearance to the filming crew while entering and exiting the country.

Himalayan Fixer was assigned to acquire the permits specifically the Drone and the National Park Filming permit which allowed the crew to film anywhere in the national park without any restriction. Threemm Films was supporting the project by providing Himalayan fixer with assistance and necessary resources.

In Nepal especially, the majority of the problems that a filmmaker faces is the uncertainty of things.
