Khumbu Films
Practices & Standards

Continuing with the ethics of Sean Burch's expeditions, our films are completely local-driven, hiring natives and professionals of diverse backgrounds for all production aspects of our films. This aspect allows us to film situations, moments in time, an openness from our cast, that you can't get from a western film crew.


The standards are designed to encourage equitable representation on and off screen in order to better reflect the diversity of the films, it's subjects, and the audience. Our company's employees are based around the world, with Producer and Director Sean Burch being the only American-born member of the team.
