Storyboard Text

  • The world started off dark and blank. A black bird had hatched an egg and the god of love, Eros, came from the egg. One half of the egg shell was the earth and the other half was the sky.
  • The Earth was named Gaia and the sky was named Uranus. They fell in love and had a son named Kronus who fears his children's powers so to protect himself he swallowed his children. His wife Rhea saved her youngest son, Zeus. Zeus then battled his father and won making him the leader. He gave the Earth life and the Sky stars. 
  • Zeus's sons, Prometheus and Epimetheus, created men and animals for the Earth, but after Prometheus had finished his brother had told him he used all the gifts foolishly. Upset with what his brother had told him he got fire from the sun god and gave it to man and taught them how to use it.
  • Zeus had figured out what his son had done and was mad about it because fire was something only the gods were supposed to have access to. To punish his son he chained him to a mountain and had a vulture pick out his liver everyday.  To punish mankind Zeus had his other son create a beautiful women named Pandora.
  • Zeus had all the gods and goddesses give her gifts. Zeus gave her curiosity and a box that he told her to never open.Pandora married Zeus's son, Epimetheus, she was happy with her life but she really wanted to open the box because she thought it would be something wonderful like the gifts she received, so one night she opened it.
  •  The box was full of horrors like pain, sickness, envy, and greed. When she opened the box she was  shocked and her husband came in and closed the box but it was too late. Later that night they opened the box again because they heard a voice and it was hope that she gave to humankind.
