English 30 retelling of Norse Mythological Story.

Storyboard Text

  • Before Earth, sky's and seas, there was only Ginnungagap. The abyssal darkness that lay perfectly in the balances between Muspelheim and Niflheim, realms of Fire and Ice.
  • As the Ice melted from the fire, the first giant Ymir was born.
  • Thank you for the salty ice. I will give you milk.
  • Grrr I'm a metaphor about life and matter and needing to create life from something, unlike the christians who create something from nothing. My existence is no different from that of the Ginnungagap grrrrrrrr.
  • The melting of the frosts revealed a cow Audhumbla, who nourished Ymir with its milk, in turn gaining salt licks from the ever melting ice.
  • As Audhumbla Continued to lick the frost, more Gods we're revealed, leading to the birth of Odin, Vili, and Ve.
  • I, Odin, am going to become the Ruler of the Gods, and my Son Thor and kinda son Loki will be classic enemies.
  • Odin and his Brothers killed Ymir, and used his body to create the world.
  • I'm sick of this endless nihilist abyss!
  • And on our new world, the gods created Ask and Embla out of the trunks of trees, and protected their land from the giants with a fence, creating Midgard
  • Time to make a family
  • And from the world, the cosmos created Yggdrasil, the tree that bears the life of nine realms creating our norse universe. (please google Yggdrasil to understand last slide's imagery)
