    Making of Nordwand DVD

    Making of Nordwand

    Carlos Gerstenhauer (2008)

    The shooting of Nordwand started in 2006 in the Bernese Oberland using real-life alpinists as stunt doubles to capture frequently impressive shots of the ascent of the Eiger. From the beginning, a team of the Bavarian television accompanied the film crew to produce a documentary on how the film was made. Part of the movie was shot in pretty tough snowstorm situations at the Eiger, and scenes like the one of the last bivouac were shot in a minus-15-degrees-Celsius freezer that was used as a studio. To make it more realistic, snow canons rented from ski resorts were used to produce snow, so actors were literally covered with real ice and snow and under strong cold conditions in the shots.

    Eiger solo

    Leo Dickinson (1983)

    Welsh mountaineer Eric Jones' ultimate dream is to climb the notorious North Face of the Eiger alone. Filming Eric Jones on his solo climb was a great challenge to cameraman Leo Dickinson, who had to be lowered from a helicopter to Death Bivouac, high on the mountain to capture Eric's progress on film. Leo Dickinson's film showed the scale of the achievement by seeing Eric Jones in his tiny perspective, a mere speck, against the magnitude of the mountain. The film also traces the history of the North Face including the early pre-war attempts that gave the mountain its notorious reputation. The climax of the film recreates John Harlin's 5000ft fall during the historic winter ascent of the Eiger Direct in 1966.
