Storyboard Text

  • I'm amazing and fearsome, I'm the strongest man to live! No one can control me!
  • I can do whatever I want whenever I want!!
  • I feel unsafe!!
  • Someone needs to do something about him!!
  • This guy is crazy!!!
  • You will be equally as strong and courageous as Gilgamesh, and the spirit in your heart will match the untamed spirit in Gilgamesh's heart.
  • I am Enkidu!!
  • Gilgamesh was the fearless king of the strong-walled Uruk, he had no respect for tradition and he did what he whatever he wanted, even if it hurt others. The people of Uruk were getting tired of his ignorance.
  • I will address this Gilgamesh and challenge him to a wrestling match.
  • Come with me, I will civilize you and bring you to the strong-walled city of Uruk, to meet Gilgamesh.
  • I've always wanted a friend...
  • The people of Uruk were complaining about Gilgamesh's behaviour, and the heavenly gods heard their complaints.
  • My dear friend Enkidu, thank you for teaching me a valuable lesson, please come with me to find Humbaba?
  • I would love to come on this mission with you Gilgamesh!
  • The heavenly gods create an equally strong and courageous man , Enkidu who will teach Gilgamesh his proper pace in the world. He was made to be the opposite of Gilgamesh and to teach him the right way to treat his people.
  • ahhh
  • Maybe we don't HAVE to kill him...
  • No by, we got to
  • Enkidu lived as a wild animal until a priestess came and civilized him.
  • The priestess brought the now civilized Ekidu back to Uruk, where he fought with Gilgamesh to teach him a lesson, and then they became the best of friends. Gilgamesh and Enkidu prepare to travel to the Cedar Forest in search of the evil Humbaba.
  • In 3 days, Gilgamesh and Enkidu travelled a distance that should have taken 6 weeks. Once they reached Humbaba, Gilgamesh pushed the evil giant up against the wall of his house and Enkidu struck Humbaba in the neck with an axe and sword. They had defeated the evil giant and they can now take wood from the forest to help build the walls of Uruk.
