The Hero’s Journey | Is my graduation project for the University HKU | Image and Media Technology

Since the beginning of time people are fascinated by stories of hero’s. But did you know there is a fundamental structure that's lies beneath all these tales of fantasy. Joseph Campbell, a famous mythologist, was the first to discover similarities within all ancient myths. He called it the Monomyth. According to him there are 17 stages in which every hero has to walk through one way or the other.

Christopher Vogler a Hollywood development executive was inspired by the writings of Campbell. He wrote his own adaptation guide for hollywood screenwriters.

In the hero’s journey his 12 stages are visualized by using iconic blockbuster movies that follow the same structure of storytelling.
