Storyboard Text

  • Arghh! These immoral and pestiferous humans are a mistake! I, Zeus demand for the waters to rise up and flood Earth!
  • Zeus, looking down upon humankind, swiftly decides that they are a mistake and commands the waters to flood Earth. The flood quickly wipes out all humans except 2, King Deucalion, and his wife, Pyrrhe
  • Father, Zeus has flooded the entire earth and wiped out all humans except me and my wife, Pyrrhe
  • To their surprise, the rocks turn into humans! Pyrrhe's rocks turn into women, while King Deucalion's rocks morph into men.
  • King Deucalion goes to Prometheus, his father to ask for help. Prometheus then instructs the pair to build a sturdy boat, and, "Throw the bones of the Great Mother over their shoulders," when the waters receded.
  • Don't worry son. Build a sturdy boat, and when the waters recede, throw the bones of the Great Mother over your shoulders.
  • The next flood is coming, so what should we do?
  • After sailing for seven whole days, the couple arrives at land. After pondering about it for a while, King Deucalion finally figures out who the Great Mother is. The Earth!
  • The couple could finally rejoice and relax. There was finally a way to reestablish humankind
  • But... Who is the Great Mother? Wait! I know!
  • Finally! Land! We can now put Prometheus' instructions into action!
  • After arriving at land, King Deucalion decides that the Great Mother is the Earth and her bones are stones. The couple bend down to get rocks so they can execute the rest of Prometheus' instructions
  • The Great mother is the Earth, and her bones are stones!
  • Wow! my rocks turn into men!
  • Mine turn into women!
  • I think we have finally found a way to reestablish mankind!
