Project Information

Aftershock: Everest and the Nepal Earthquake is a Netflix documentary. Raw Factual TV U.K. is the documentary’s production company. Mr. Bhuwan Bharati Our founder and Ms. Carolyn Syangbo (Durbar Associate) are the main fixtures for Nepal shooting; besides this, Ms. Pooja Pant (a freelance videographer and a women’s rights activist), Bishnu Kailpit (a cinematographer, director, and editor), and Jyoti Lal Rana (an audio engineer) are other people who work for this documentary.

We had a difficult time finding a large, soundproof studio in Kathmandu. Some studios in the Nepali film industry have soundproofing, but they are all quite small for them, so they require a large room for interview shooting. We suggest they hire some hotels events room. They decide to rent an Aloft hotel event space and soundproof it, which takes our team two days to complete.

The room was not fully soundproof; sometimes noise from the outside, like construction or party music, disturbs, but we were successful in stopping the noise from the outside at the time of the shooting. For Nepal, we worked as a fixture for Aftershock Everest and the Nepal Earthquake Shooting, and we became the successful team for ground handling and managing all the permits, locations, transportation, and logistical arrangements for the crew.
