Project Y

    1000% created an award winning feature-length, pseudo-scientific documentary about Dirty Kanza; a 200-mile long gravel race through the Flint Hills of Nebraska and the World’s premier β€œsucks” event.

    All in an effort to answer the most important question facing humankind in the modern worldβ€”why are humans compelled to push their physical, spiritual and emotional limitations without causation, especially in the context of endeavors, sports and activities commonly referred to as Type 2 or β€œLatent Funβ„’? Project Y features five Subject Athletes, a gravel simulation room, a Neuroscientist, a Rabbi and a handful of TIME TO BEAT. Tarot cards were read. Aura photographs were taken. Insights were gleaned. And profound conclusions were arrived at.

    THROUGH SPECIALIZED, MYTHICAL STATE OF AND SPONSOR CHANNELS, AS WELL AS THROUGH A HANDFUL OF KEY MEDIA PARTNERS, WE INVITED THE WORLD TO PARTICIPATE IN PROJECT Y. *REAL WORLD OR SURVIVOR X SCIENCE PSUEDO-EXPERIMENT ABOUT PUSHING LIMITATIONS AND RACING GRAVEL.

    WE RECEIVED THOUSANDS OF SUBMISSION VIDEOS. THE RESPONSE WAS HUGE, CLEARLY ENDURANCE ATHLETES ARE CURIOUS ABOUT TYPE 2 FUN.

    WE NARROWED IT DOWN TO FIVE SUBJECT ATHLETES, THEN BROUGHT THEM ALL TO PORTLAND, OREGON FOR A PROJECT Y CAMP.

    WE INTERVIEWED EXPERTS.

    A NEUROSCIENTIST, A RABBI, A CLAIRVOYANT, A NUTRITIONIST, AN ANTHROPOLOGIST, A JUNGIAN DREAM THERAPIST, A COACH AND A PHILOSOPHER.

    WE PUT OUR SUBJECT ATHLETES THROUGH A BATTERY OF TESTS, EVALUATIONS AND EXERCISES IN ORDER TO DETERMINE THEIR DK TIME TO BEAT.
