Film & production

We can assist photographers, film units and production teams to reach high-altitude environments with planning, logistics and elite mountaineering leadership.

Our leading role

Many filmmakers and photographers are, like us, completely at home in the mountains. But often, needing someone else to worry about safety and logistics, allowing more focus on capturing the content. That’s where Nimsdai can help.

We can get teams and equipment, up to high altitude, even to places you never thought possible. We’ll lead operations while a shoot happens, handling all logistics including high altitude risk assessments, helicopters and transportation, weather forecasting, rope fixing and rigging to name just a few.

Our existing network extends well beyond the needs of a typical climb, over past expeditions we’ve been fortunate to build strong trusting relationships with other world class photographers, videographers and film crews specialising in production within these hostile and remote environments. So, if you need it, we can even cover the production side of things too.

Filming 14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible

Shot across more than a year, battling extreme weather, climbing while filming with a drone and using handheld cameras, the behind-the-scenes story of Nimsdai’s 14 Peaks is as fascinating and ambitious as the film itself. Together Nimsdai and his team captured more than 100 hours of footage, which were then ‘brought to life’ over the next 18 months by director Torquil Jones.

Whatever your project

Nimsdai expeditions can deliver the following services:

  • Location scouting 
  • Extreme high-altitude risk assessment
  • Climbing permit admin
  • Helicopter & transportations
  • Communications infrastructure
  • Weather forecasting
  • Location safety & medical support
  • Rope fixing & rigging
  • Rescue & recovery missions

Once we have a full understanding of your objectives, we’ll work collaboratively on defining locations, then present a full project proposal for expedition logistics, resource requirements and related costs.

Nims (leader on all expeditions) is a multi-world record breaking mountaineer, the fastest to summit all 14 8000m peaks. He has led 20 x 8000m expeditions with a 100% success rate, in both reaching the summit and more importantly bringing everyone home safely. Combining this with his UK Special Forces and Ghurkha heritage, he is the perfect bridge between Western and Nepalese cultures, providing an invaluable local Himalayan infrastructure and a totally unique skillset fine-tuned for success in the mountains.

Safety through

If it’s controllable we control it, this is key to attain and maintain our industry leading strategy for success and safety. We maximise our options, agility and responsiveness by running totally self-sufficient expeditions, not relying on any other teams on the mountain to achieve our objectives. We are capable of setting up our own fixed lines (with a proven track record on all 8000m peaks) and have backups to cover all scenarios, from secondary oxygen supplies through to the ability and experience to operate our own rescue missions if the situation arises.
