This is the very 1st concept... still very rough at the moment, but I know what it will "looks like" at the end... might still need some change later, but hopefully will lead me to right direction...

Cool! Is this your final composition, or are you going to play with the camera still?

alvin-cgi
11-06-2005, 09:21 PM
Thanks, I think will change when all others "objects" added together when comes to the final composition, but will be pretty close to what now... I guess... you know, to get all the best parts into will be another "mission" to complete... I hope I can update that soon.

cheers:)

Ok... a quick update to my concept... THE TIME (a forgotten moment of human history)...

Basically I am "re-creating/reconstructing” a moment of Noah flood, but not actually the "flood", is the last moment before flood destroy the whole civilization, so a ancient city and the palace, and fire etc... The last "moment" the world have change, a "moment" before the new civilization begin...

Cheers...:D

"God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth." Genesis 6:13

Behind "THE TIME" is inspired by...

This is based on the account recorded in Genesis chapter 6 in the Bible, an old tale which has been told and retold for centuries, and will be continuing generations to generations.

"THE TIME", I am re-constructing a "moment" of history, through the imagination based on true fact, presenting this past and future history moment, and "THE TIME" encompasses one of the oldest events in the future history of the world.

The story begin with the close of Ark's door, before it starts to rain and before the volcanoes erupt, before the flood destroy the whole civilization... Presumably, when Noah spoke of it, there was no evidence such a disaster was to occur... just one man's word that God told him it would, some probably disbelief, scoff on him, calling him crazy... just when everyone thought this wasn't true, just when everyone thought this was only a fiction, then the time has finally arrived, the sky has began tumbling down, the earth has started shattering... it is the "THE TIME", the greatest moment in the history, is so spectacular that one can almost feel the atmosphere, the anxiety, the excitement and the anguish.

Yes, it is part of the imagination... and It is also part of the true event, and a forgotten moment of human history... when I see to the world today, I can feel that - it happened before, and something like this, somehow, sometime it could happen again... No way to hide, No way to run...

"And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die." Genesis 6:17

To be continued...

"God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth." Genesis 6:13

You ain't see nothing yet... "No one" has seen this before, you may not see Noah nor Ark nor flood in this image, but the time has happened... the image has preserved the spectacular time of the event.

Behind THE TIME is inspired by... this is based on the account recorded in Genesis chapter 6 in the Bible, which has been told and retold for centuries, and will be continuing from generations to generations.

THE TIME, a "moment" of history, through the imagination based on true fact, presenting this past and future history moment, THE TIME encompasses one of the oldest events in the future history of the world.

The story begins after the close of Ark's door, before it starts to rain and before the volcanoes erupt, before the flood destroy the whole civilization... Presumably, when Noah spoke of it... there was no evidence such a disaster was to occur, just one man's word that God told him it would, and some probably disbelief, scoff on him, calling him crazy... when everyone thought this wasn't true, when everyone thought this was only a fiction, then the time has finally arrived, the sky has began tumbling down, the earth has started shattering... it is the THE TIME, the moment in history, is so spectacular that one can almost feel the atmosphere, the anxiety, the excitement and the anguish.

Yes, it is part of imagination and - beyond... also part of a true event, a forgotten moment of human history... when I see to the world today, I can feel that - it happened before, something like this, somehow it could happen again, No way to hide, No way to run - is THE TIME!

"And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die." Genesis 6:17

To be continued...
