Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • Long ago, all elements mixed together with one germ of life.
  • This single germ then caused a muddy ocean to cover the entire earth.
  • The ocean then plummeted into the sky and created a god.
  • The last two gods it made, were named Izanagi and Izanami. They were remarkable.
  • This god grew lonely, and decided to make other gods.
  • Izanagi thrusted his spear into the ocean, creating many islands.
  • Izanagi and Izanami decided to marry and have children
  • The first child was filled with beauty, too much that the gods decided she was too beautiful for Japan, so they put her in the sky to become the sun.
  • The second child became the moon
  • The third child was disruptive and not fit for them, so they put him in the sea where he became the storm.
