Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning there was nothing. Then darkness appeared by the name of Erebus. Then somehow, Love was born bringing a start of order. From Love came Light and Day.
  • Then there was earth in the name of Gaia.
  • Then somehow Gaia got pregnant! She later gave birth to  Uranus (the heaven/sky) and they later got married.
  • Together they produced the three Cyclopes, the three Hecatoncheires, and twelve Titans.
  • However, Uranus was a bad father and husband. He hated the Hecatoncheires. He imprisoned them by pushing them into the hidden places of the earth, Gaia's womb. This angered Gaea and she plotted against Uranus. She made a flint sickle and tried to get her children to attack Uranus. All were too afraid except, the youngest Titan, Cronus.
  • Gaea and Cronus set up an ambush of Uranus as he lay with Gaea at night. Cronus grabbed his father and castrated him, with the stone sickle, throwing the severed genitals into the ocean.
