Video short animation "Everest" by Assaf Hayut

Watch "Everest" (3:46 minutes) music video inspired by a true events that took place on the second expedition to Mt. Everest (1924), where two mountaineers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine lost their lives reportedly near the summit. Speculations on whether they reached the top continue till this day, if they did, they were the first UK men in known modern times to reach it. A nice storytelling using closeness and coming together to move through obstacles, with no drama. The characters in the story like each other, and their support of each other increases as the story's tension increases. YouTube link
