this is a spin off of the theme 'literally' suggested by regularjoe. i think you can't discuss one without discussing the other.


the reason i think it should be 'metaphors' instead of 'literally' is that i i think in joe's examples it seemed like most of the time taking things literally was the bad side of the coin where as taking things as metaphors is more truthful and rewarding. so i think focusing on the metaphors side will produce records with a more optimistic message. maybe. 


i still think it's  possible to invole the 'literally' satire/comedy but more on the angle of someone who is talking in metaphors and the other person takes it way too literally. (i.e- the Mony Python - Life of Brian scene where brian is talking about the metaphor of the birds and the lily - "consider the lily.." - "HE'S 'AVIN A GO AT THE FLOWERS NOW!")


i also think it gives us the opportunity to delve into the essense of what a metaphor and what symbolism actually is and how it relates to the language we use, the characters we create, the stories we tell and our various rituals like baptism and marriage etc.

i had started animating it but decided it was the wrong direction for the visuals, & i don't think i'm the right person to animate this. i actually think this would work best as a shadow puppet-esque sort of animation, and i feel like that’s something that would allow many contributions.. (of all the various elements etc)


so yeah, i would love to see it made into an animated short film. but also beyond that…


i actually had this idea when i first wrote the story. the creation myth can technically be read as a straight story about the creation of the universe, but in essence i think it’s a love story parable. the love of a human for another human or
for art or for whatever they happen to love. and i think there is potential for several mini-films to be made around this theme, which could combine together with the actual creation myth to make one big story/project.


i was imagining different parts of the story - when the 2 characters first meet, when they build a world together, when they fall out, when they part ways, the blissful moments, the terrifying moments etc.. that each part could be paralleled in various live action love stories. perhapssss ones at various points in history, though not necessarily.


this may very well be far too ambitious a project to talk about right now, artistically and practically.. but it’s just something i was thinking about and wanted to record. either way i would love to revisit this story/animation at some point, and i also just wanted to see what ideas you guys might have for it
