Jeff Clapp will be the subject of "The Bell Man of Everest," about the art he created from discarded oxygen tanks on the famed mountain.


Producer John Eraklis of Exodus Entertainment and Jane Fleming and Mark Ordesky’s Amber Entertainment are teaming up to tell the story of environmental artist Jeff Clapp with The Bell Man of Everest.

Clapp was a small-town cook whose life changed after he watched a National Geographic documentary about the hundreds of discarded oxygen cylinders left by climbers on Mount Everest. He bought a ticket to Nepal and, facing considerable odds, began collecting the oxygen tanks and cleaning up Everest in the process. He returned home to transform the tanks into environmental art, with pieces now sitting in museums and galleries around the world.

Eraklis acquired the life rights to Clapp’s story and brought them to Amber Entertainment. No writer is on board yet.

Amber is one the companies behind Lovely Molly, the new horror movie from Blair Witch Project co-creator Eduardo Sanchez, which opens May 18. The producers have re-teamed with Sanchez and his Haxan Films banner for Exists, a found-footage movie on Bigfoot that is currently filming. The company is in post on the Nicolas Cage thriller The Frozen Ground.

Eraklis’ Exodus began life as a special effects services company but Eraklis steered the company to finance, develop and produce features, making its debut with Igor, the 2008 animated feature voice-starring John Cusack.

We have taken trash from Mount Everest and inspired others to follow suit. I was a guest artist at Disney Worlds "Expedition Everest" in 2007 and 2008 inspiring the kids to, "Use their imaginations."
