The White Death

Genre: Action
Director(s): David McElroy

Well it's good so far up there.

This kind of concerns me

all those seracs up above

as far as landing down there.

We'll have to take a look at that.

This is the peak right here.

That should rip out Doug.

I believe it will rip out.

Doesn't that look good to you?

I don't like it because

of the crevasses.

And some of the exposure to

some of these chunks of ice

up here coming off.

I don't think it's safe.

It takes several hours to find

the spot that satisfies everyone.

It looks like we could drop

charges right down

in that little pocket there

where the cornice is.

Doesn't that look good to you?


Lower 'em in there like

it's my unborn son.

One camera is positioned inside

a padded steel crash box

which is placed directly

in the path of the avalanche.

Timing is everything

in this mission.

The camera must begin shooting

when the avalanche is triggered

or it will all be for nothing.

One. Two. Three. Four. Five.

Six. Seven. Eight. Nine.

Ten. Eleven. Twelve. Thirteen.

Fourteen. Fifteen.


On your mark get set and go!

Steve positions himself behind

a second camera at a safe distance.

Second one out.

Okay keep going... keep going.

Several sticks of high explosives

will be used to

trigger the avalanche

Most avalanches are

naturally triggered,

when the weight of the snow exceeds

its ability to hold together.

And most of these occur far

from human eyes.

I think the usefulness

of seeing avalanches in motion

is that a lot of the people

that we deal

with in our avalanche workshops

have never seen an avalanche

in motion before.

But when they see

this thing in motion

and they see the power

that's associated

with an avalanche

it's a wake up alarm

Like the snowflakes

they are composed of

no two avalanches are alike.
