Cambridge Filmworks scales new heights with Everest commission
UK video and digital agency Cambridge Filmworks is set to chart an ‘epic and emotional’ journey to Everest for a new TV documentary.
The St Ives-based firm has been commissioned by national children’s charity Embrace Child Victims of Crime (Embrace).
The film will focus on the journey of one young man as he overcomes his past to take on the challenge of a life-time – an extreme, high altitude trek, culminating at Everest Base Camp.
Rich Millen from Cambridge Filmworks said the documentary will chart the journey in a “brutally honest” way.
“We are really excited to be a part of this fantastic expedition. Having been to Everest Base Camp on the north side of the mountain we know just how challenging the trek will be but also how rewarding,” he said.
“This will be a genuine heart on the sleeve documentary tackling issues of crime, child abuse and the heart breaking damage it causes to young people and their families.”
Embrace operates across the UK delivering emotional and therapeutic support to children and families in the aftermath of serious crime. It helped more than 650 beneficiaries across Cambridgeshire last year.
Two places remain on the trek to Everest Base Camp which takes place between 2 and 21 November, with sponsorship opportunities also available. For more information please contact Chloe Raw at info [at] embracecvoc.org.uk
