Modern Prometheus Myth

Animation 

Storytelling

In Greek mythology, the Titan Prometheus had a reputation for being a clever trickster. He is most known for his creation of the human race, in which he adorned so much, that he disobeyed the commands of Zeus and gifted them fire and metalwork. This action was deemed punishable by Zeus, who then ensured that for the rest of Prometheus's existence he would helplessly be chained to a rock where an eagle would eat the liver of the disobedient Titan. 

Thinking about how stories contour and take on new forms when passed down through the generations, I retold the story of Prometheus through a short animation and written story with a bit of
implied humor.
