gaiia's genesis

The start of an odyssey

myth & future

To celebrate the official launch of Gaiia Studio, we decided to create a mythical trailer featuring the mother entity Gaiia. Like in the original Greek myth, Gaiia visits other god-like entities to try and convince them to help her kill her husband: Ouranos. Everyone refuses but Chronos, her son. And when they finally kill Ouranos, a new era begins. The era of Gaiia. 

Gaiia is represented by the shape shifting body of Ornella Dufay, wrapped in light cloth that moved by a circle of 10 fans around her. The other entities--Nyx, Eos, Tartarus, Hemera, Chronos and Chaos are represented by dark shapes which we made from wood and plaster. Finally we composited the two worlds together into a futuristic myth that echos the vision we have for our studio.
