The Expedition Project Management (EPM) Ltd was commissioned by the UK Charity Enham to manage the planning, logistics and subsequent leading of a unique Expedition which would see a group of Disabled adults and their buddies climb Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.


The entire journey was filmed by the very talented people at Brag Productions, entitled 'The Mountain Within'.

We are delighted to announce that The Mountain Within has won the very prestigious award for Best Documentary in the Mountainfilm Festival in the United States. The award will be presented to the film crew at a Gala dinner on the 26th February 2010. This recognition is a tribute to everyone involved in the film and to all who have supported the The Mountain Within since its completion and release last year.

So when considering making your next Documentary and film no matter how remote the location EPM will ensure you get there... for we only do 'That which makes life worth living....

EPM will be holding a Charity and Fundraising viewing of this Film in Hong Kong

"Shooting The Mountain Within in Tanzania would not have been possible without the logistical support provided by Expedition Management (EPM). Steven Ballantyne's leadership skills and practical, can do approach - even when faced with unexpected and seemingly insurmountable obstacles - were invaluable and removed much of the stress usually associated with a project of this nature. It was a pleasure to work with Steven and his team and we look forward to the opportunity to do so again soon."

"I just wanted to say a big thanks to you and EPM for your tremendous hard work in helping set up what seemed like an impossible shoot in Papua New Guinea. Everything seemed against us, the time of year, time constraints and PNG politics to name a few... but thanks to your great knowledge of the country and contacts we managed to pull off a successful shoot and produce a great programme. We started off trying to set up the shoot ourselves but found it next to impossible, thank goodness we got you on board when we did!   I look forward to working with EPM again on our next big challenge!"
