Cosmogony is a fanedit using a lot of movies to tell the story of humantity and nature, from the creation of life to wherever we are going.
When I started this work I thought it would be cool to use all the great movies about the various wars and iconic moments in human history... But it did not turn like that. I needed to have room to show various stories more centered around certain characters (lots of them fictional), events and ideas than making a list of "known moments".
The edit is quite slow paced and contemplative. With mostly only music, except some dialogue at key points.
About 80% or more of the music you'll listen to is added and does not belong to the original movies.
Some audiences could find it too long for what it tells and maybe they're right (2h12 min) but I could not cut much more than I already did without the feeling that I was removing some things that I like.
So, the edit is what it is; maybe not perfect and not for everyone but I like it.
If you did not see The Emerald Forest, Apocalypto and Contagion, I advise you to watch them before this edit because there are some spoilers in the scenes I'm using.
New music by: Jean-Michel Jarre; Neil Young; Judas Priest; Klaus Schulze & Lisa Gerrard; Lou Reed & Metallica; Bruce Dickinson; Bjork (song Cosmogony on end credits)
