Everest cinematographer Salvatore Totino talked to The Hollywood Reporter about the grueling shoot for Everest, which involved both a difficult location and a challenge to recreate that location in a studio space.

"It was a very difficult shoot, physically challenging, with weather you couldn’t control. You had to keep adapting," he says of filming on the mountain.

And yet, moving to a soundstage came with its own difficulties. "It was very challenging because we had to re-create the sun, which at Everest is so incredibly sharp and crisp," says Totino who opted to use SoftSun lights. "They were 9 feet long and 3 ½ feet in diameter and 100,000 watts. They had to be moved around on cranes because they are very heavy.”
