On the morning of May 10, 1996, climbers (Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin) from two expeditions start their final ascent toward the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. With little warning, a violent storm strikes the mountain, engulfing the adventurers in one of the fiercest blizzards ever encountered by man. Challenged by the harshest conditions imaginable, the teams must endure blistering winds and freezing temperatures in an epic battle to survive against nearly impossible odds.
Visual effects supervisor Dadi Einarsson at RVX reached out to Rebellion to help complete a sequence of difficult green screen shots and background replacement shots. Each shot had it’s own technical challenge for completion, below you’ll find a few before and after examples.
