THE QUEST is a 2D + Virtual Reality series designed to take worldwide audiences on epic “educational thrill-rides” to reveal amazing “rarely seen” stories from the most captivating places on earth.

“It’s like combining Werner Herzog with Anthony Bourdain and a bit of Bear Grylls to create unprecedented 2D + VR immersive experiences.”

Director Alex Harz and his crew spent 63 days in Nepal filming the first installments of THE QUEST series in unique 2D as well as one-of-a-kind 1st-person Virtual Reality all the way to the summit of Mt. Everest (29,032 feet / 8849 meters).
