Why You Should Help Us?

Because we believe China Jam is going to be a fun and thrilling cinematic ride filled with humor, music and great climbing. In other words it's going to kick ass!

It will narrate the epic journey of four climbers and musicians in a 14 days long vertical ascent of a high altitude peak lost in a remote valley of the westernmost region of China.

In short, if you wish to watch some true climbing and alpine adventure, to discover a new mountain territory, to follow a two weeks non-stop climbing experience, to understand big wall techniques and strategies, to sing along portaledge musical sessions, and overall to laugh a lot, our coming film is just for you, definitely.

Why We Need Your Help?

Costs and expenses of the expedition and filming are already covered thanks to the help of some partners. But we still need a few bucks to make the film come to life. In other words, this film cannot be done without you!

We turn to Indiegogo to support the post-production costs (editing, sound mixing, coloring as well as hardwares, softwares and crew) but also the marketing and distribution costs (promotional materials, festival fees and DVD edition...), so we can make sure we get the word out about this movie.

What You'll Get?

We offer you to :

  • be the first to watch our coming film on DVD or HD file,
  • get your name screened on our final credits
  • get an exclusive autographed poster or some greeting cards,
  • receive a VIP treatment on any of our screenings,
  • share a diner or climb a whole week-end in the Verdon Gorge with one of us.

We also give you the opportunity to purchase Fine Art Prints of an exclusive collection of some of Evrard Wendenbaum's best shots on this expedition, in original formats :

What Will Be The Story?

Looking for a new alpine objective in our quest for virgin big walls, our team of four adventurers, big wallers and musicians - Sean Villanueva O'Driscoll, Nicolas Favresse, Stephane Hanssens and Evrard Wendenbaum - heard about a promising and remote mountain range in the Xinjiang province, the westernmost region of China.

There, in September 2013, after some explorations in the neighboring valleys, we found a fantastic 1200m high big wall culminating at 5842m. They therefore spent 14 days on the wall to finally achieve this amazing adventure. They faced very harsh conditions but also had a lot of fun with awesome rock and ice climbing on perfect granite and some really nice music sessions on portaledges whenever possible.

Thank You So Much For Your Time

It's been an amazing adventure shooting this movie, especially using a lot of DIY techniques and great Nikon DSLRs. We've also been lucky to spend a really good time together and all of us have worked very hard to help bring back amazing footage. We'd love to complete this job with a nice cut and share it with you.

The aim is to complete the edit in January and to premiere in February-March 2014.

Please get the word out and make some noise about our Indiegogo campaign. Share it on Facebook and Twitter or whatever social network you feel comfortable with!
