A story about secrets and the number two. My mind is always open to great concepts in science fiction.
Just a rough test animation for the CLIMB Collab. I know there isn't a request for it yet, but what can I say? I was inspired by lovetherobot's style in the original RECord.
#1: [blue] "As I stood at the bottom of those 1000 steps they looked more like a million. I knew though that I had to climb them."
#2: [purple] The man running up the steps.
#3: [blue] "Did I think I would make it? Would the Gods allow me?"
#4: [purple] The man running up the steps. "Come on! Faster! Harder! Higher!"
#5: [blue] "The 'Doubts' came soon enough though. They crowded around my head and clouded my judgement."
#6: [purple] The man is doubled over and looks like he is either panting or having a panic attack. "No!!!!!"
#7: [blue] "This is time was different though. This time I didn't buckle."
#8: [purple] The man starts to run up the steps again. "You elements will not stop me! Nothing will stop me! I will reach the top and it WILL be the end of all this!"
#9: [blue] "Still far away but I now saw it. The top. The summit."
#10: [purple] At the top of the pyramid is a two-headed serpent statue. The man takes out his sword and redoubles his efforts to reach the top.
#11: [blue] "I had tried to climb these step before, of course. Many times. I had climbed up. And I had climbed back down." The man looks at his sword.
#12: [purple] The man is at the foot of the summit. The two-headed serpent statue is there, the left head with a manic expression, the right head deeply sorrowful. The man raises his sword.
#13: [blue] The man has his sword raised and stands to the left of the two-headed serpent statue. He stares into its manic eyes. "There are two sides to this story but there could be only one outcome."
#14: [purple] The man is stood to the RIGHT of the two-headed serpent statue, sword brandished, staring into it's sorrowful eyes. "Beast with two heads, be gone!"
#15: [blue/purple] Now we see the two men in the same frame together for the first time, the Blue Man and the Purple Man as they slay the two-headed serpent-statue from both sides.
#16: [blue/purple] Through the dust and debris the two men come together close and look into each other's eyes. They embrace and become one.
There is a poem by Kandinsky and I can't work out of it's still under copyright or not. It's from 1937 and the only place I can find it on the internet is here (I did Control+F and searched 'riseman' to find it.)
This is the poem:
Riseman and Sinkman said to one another:
"I'm coming to see you soon. Yes indeed!"
And Riseman: "You to see me?"
And Sinkman: "You to see me?"
Who to see whom?
