Storyboard Text

  • Life began with an Egg. It wasn't any ordinary egg though.   It was a monstrosity, a monstrosity containing havoc and chaos.
  • The inside contained a mixture of Ying and Yang. Dark and Light, Bad and Good, all opposites were in conflict with one another.
  •  The egg finally fractured allowing for a dragon-like creature by the name of Pan-Gu to escape. Both Ying and Yang spiraled around him though he pushed the egg halves apart.
  • Now, from that very moment, all opposites were permanently separated.
  • He did stop growing though. When the sky reached 30,000 miles above the ground Pan-Gu stopped. Now he began to demolish all the mountains and filled all valleys with water to form colossal oceans.
  • Pan-Gu continually grew 10 feet every day for 18,000 years causing the sky to be raised a little higher.
  • Rivers were created with his fingers and he stomped on the Earth to create the flat ground. 
  • He also collected raw light which he tossed into the sky to become stars.
  • Pan-Gu began to grow old and tired after 18,000 years. Using his hands, he created the world and formed the basic principles of Ying and Yang. He wanted to lay down and sleep forever. And so he did, never rising again
  • . When Pan-Gu died, his body created huge mountains, his skull formed the sky and his hair was the reason why flowers existed. All his bones turned into jade and pearl and his arms were the directions.
  •  His blood became the rivers, the wind was his breathe and his voice became thunder.
  • One eye created the Sun and the other the moon.
