About this project
**UPDATE - we've made it to 100%! But if we can make it £23 000 we can license incredible soundtrack to make this film truly epic - be part of something unique!!**
**EVERY person who backs this project is invited to a private screening in London to see their name on the big screen! That, AND a boat party on the Thames after the film!**
Awe is an exciting feature-length documentary that seeks to portray the emotional journey which a team of climbers encounters on their struggle upward, and forever upward, towards the summit of the world. The tumble of stunning images, underscored by a narrative voiceover and a beautiful soundtrack will create a moving experience, serious in its address to the audience and passionately felt. This is as close to the adventure you can get without actually jumping on a plane!
Awe will be produced by RockLine's:
Producer/Director Tom A Vaillant
Director Charles H Joslain
Producer Lucas Chahuneau
Cinematographer Ryan Morton
Sound Composer Lars Henning Fylling
Expedition Manager Tim Mosedale
Associate Producer Ufuk Inci
So why Kickstarter?
Our goal is to use this unique location to capture genuine emotions from passionate men and women fighting for their dream and striving to better themselves. Together, we have been able to cover the funds for the gruelling expedition and the documentary, as well as amass a great amount of filming apparatus and the protective measures for filming in extreme conditions.
The money we raise on Kickstarter will fund the additional
needed to make this film something truly amazing that reaches as wide a public as possible.
So, please pledge as much as you can and be a part of this unique project!

Risks and challenges
Filmmaking always carries a great deal of risk, doing so on Everest carries even more! As of today, we have garnered all the funding possible, but still need to raise funds to cover our budget so the film can be finished.
In the scenario where Tom fails to reach the summit, GoPros will have been placed on five other climbers and the expedition leader, Tim Mosedale, will also be carrying a DSLR, to ensure great coverage and summit footage from as many cameras as possible.
Everest is an unforgiving mountain, and this film is a dangerous undertaking, in the event of Tom's death in the attempt, Charles will do his best to finish the documentary. Although in this ugly situation we cannot guarantee to match our current expectations for the best result of the film.
We understand the great risks of this project, and the dedication that will be needed to finish it. That is why we have been carefully considering, and planning for many months as to the different eventualities of this project, and promise to do our best if something should not go as expected. All of the offered rewards do not depend on Tom summiting: the tutorials, videos, and photographs needed to fulfill the rewards will be shot at Base Camp, before the summit attempt.
We are fairly certain to have a completed version of the film in October, however music licensing and editing can take longer than expected, in which case the fulfillment of promised rewards may be delayed.
We are always available to speak if you have any further queries concerning the risks of this project, contact us anytime by email on email@example.com.
If we exceed our funding goal, every additional pound will be used to make this film an even greater experience, with better after-effects, more music licensing, and an incredible premiere for our supporters!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
