The documentary will also record a medical research expedition designed to improve the treatment of intensive care patients with low blood oxygen levels. Apparently, this mirrors climbers at high altitudes, so the climb will collect blood and tissue samples at a whopping 29,035-foot summit. I guess we can be glad that they're not looking into frostbite, because I think it's safe to say that none of us want to see 3D, IMAX-sized frozen limbs. How are they planning to record the documentary? The plan is to have MacGillivray at Everest Base Camp, and the co-director and director of mountain photography will lead a unit with the medical team up to the summit. Other plans include helicopter footage of the summit and Sherpacams -- helmets with cameras that they plan to strap on Sherpa climbers. This should help put a positive spin on the mountain, especially after the Discovery Channel's coverage of doomed climber David Sharp in Everest: Beyond the Limit.
