We geared up with 15 waterproof cameras and 8 custom audio recorders for the underground crew. We trained 4 of the 50 elite caving team members to document their own journey, miles underground. We built out an Everest style basecamp tent village to offload massive amounts of media that came out of the cave on a daily basis. We charged our batteries using generators and solar panels. We also shot the basecamp story unfolding on the surface with cinema cameras. And we ate a whole lot of beans and rice.
