Hi-Tec: Yassan's Proposal

Top 6: November 19th 2014
The unsung hero of Pharrell’s clap-happy pop video, the world’s greatest marriage proposal and a child’s fascination with dead pirates are the inspiration for a series of documentaries created by outdoor brand, Hi-Tec. “The Walkumentary Series” is an online documentary project conceived and produced by Amsterdam-based agency this that + the other. The films demonstrate how walking can lead to extraordinary things, and Hi-Tec inspires people to walk. The first film, “Happy,” features Jon Beattie, the Steadicam operator who captured the action in Pharrell Williams’ acclaimed ”24 Hours of Happy” music video. With the song as its soundtrack, Jonathan narrates his bizarre filming experience walking backwards through the crowded streets of Los Angeles for 10 miles a day for 11 days, strapped to the 100-pound camera. The second execution is a love story entitled “Yassan’s Proposal,” which documents the world’s biggest marriage proposal by the record-breaking Tokyo artist, Yassan. Yassan quit his job and hit the road to spend half a year to walk across Japan and inscribe “Marry Me?” using the country as his canvas for the GPS artwork – a request that could be seen from space. “Pirates” follows Sonia and Alexandre Poussin who embarked on a two-year Madagascan adventure with their children Ulysse and Philae in search of a mythical pirate burial plot. The French family navigate swamps and jungle accompanied by animated animals, including comedy crocodiles, parrots and iguanas that pop in and out of the story.
