As a University project, I was told to create a animation story, of which climax I would represent in a painting.

Taking influence from animations such as Fantasia 2000, I made an illustration of an alternate Origin of the Species. In this case, the so called Big Bang happened due to this creatures you can see on the painting. So this Origin happened in a fight between Good and Evil.

I wanted to make something abstract, with meaning though. And no complex story at all. Something that could be told in 2 minutes and still have it's potential.

As for the music, I'm a classical music fan myself. And for musical influence I wanted to show something familiar but different at the same time. So I took Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross psychedelic take of "In The Hall Of The Mountain King" and adapted it to this montage. The reason I didn't credited Trent and Atticus as the composers of the music shown is because I didn't want to take the credit of Evard Grieg, which is a great composer I've come to adore.

So in the story I imagined, the score playing during this clash would be this music, there's the plain reason for picking it.

Thank you to:

My dear friend Tiago Mendes who had the patience to film me drawing for 2h straight;

My parents and some friends at college for going through my beta phases on the montage;

My grade teacher for giving me such a great project to work on;

Edvard Grieg, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for making splendid music.

Without you this video would not be possible.

Thanks for watching!
