Screenwriters: use the Hero's Journey, stupid





kalbashir
The Hero's Journey (also known as the Monomyth) is the template upon which the vast majority of successful stories and Hollywood blockbusters are based upon. Understanding this template is a priority for story or screenwriters.

It is upon this structure that situations are superimposed. This is why stories such as Alien (1979), Gladiator (2000), Godfather (1972), American Beauty (1999), Annie Hall (1977) and many others ( all deconstructed at www.clickok.co.uk/index4.html ) appear to be different but are all constructed, almost sequence by sequence, in the same way.

For a number of very valid reasons, this means that if you want to write (and sell) successful stories, whether they're Hollywood blockbusters or novels, you need to master the Hero's Journey in a very detailed way.

There are more than 188 stages to the Complete Hero's Journey...which we have identified through the deconstruction of hundreds of Hollywood blockbusters.
