Jhingan were stranded in the earthquake that struck Nepal and surrounding
regions in late April 2015. Sooperfly captures the adventure and tribulations
of the duo, real–time, through Mission Everest 2015 – a web-series launched on
YouTube.

Vishal Nongbet,
Senior Vice President & Business Head – Sooperfly, said, “At Sooperfly, we
support fresh narratives and share compelling content through custom
distribution. Mission Everest follows Samir and Sauraj – two youngsters who chose
to help rather than flee in the wake of a crisis. It is a narrative that
appeals to fellow youth on a medium that is most accessed by them.”

About a month into
their 29,030-feet climb, on 25th April, a massive avalanche
triggered by a 7.8 earthquake tore through Everest Base Camp, Nepal, leaving in
its wake, 19 dead and over 60 casualties.

“We emerged from the
avalanche to witness a trail of destruction. The quake had claimed our camp as
well. We were confronted with the choice of retreating from the valley to
safety or staying back and helping,” said Sauraj.

Succeeding the launch
of the trailer, a new episode will release each subsequent
Thursday on the Mission Everest YouTube channel.

“We decided to do
the unconventional, leaving our day jobs and following our dream: to climb
Mount Everest. After two years of prep and giving it our all, the biggest
tragedy in the history of mountaineering hit us. Sooperfly helped us tell our
story as it happened,” recounts Samir, one of the two qualified mountaineers,
with wide trekking and climbing experience, featured on Mission Everest. Also MBAs,
both Sameer & Sauraj spent three years in corporate set-ups before returning
to their first love – high-altitude climbing.

Sooperfly has
created the web series from concept to finish and will manage Mission Everest, which
documents the real-life experiences.

A
joint venture between India’s The 120 Media Collective and UK based Diagonal
View, Sooperfly combines the former’s credibility with brands and advertisers
for compelling content creation & production, and the latter’s smart
audience management skills.
