Description

WHERE IS THE HERO’S JOURNEY GOING IN 2017?

Veteran Hollywood story consultant and studio executive Christopher Vogler brings his game changing seminar to the London Screenwriters' Festival.

Christopher Vogler has been exploring the potential of a concept known as the Hero’s Journey for decades, influencing the plots and motifs of hundreds of movies with his myth-inspired approach to telling stories. In this workshop he will take stock of the current state of screen storytelling, with its breathtaking challenges to classic forms and norms of character behavior.

Vogler will open a thought-provoking discussion of what stories really are and why they have so much power in our society. After analyzing thousands of stories for Hollywood clients he has identified 18 story elements that are essential for connecting your audience to your hero, and will present them along with his core material, the 12-stage Hero’s Journey structural concept based on the patterns of myth and folklore, and the 8 Archetypes that are the necessary building blocks of character.

The workshop will cover new research into how the brain and the organs of the body cooperate when we enjoy a good story, and how storytellers can trigger emotional responses using time-tested tools like sympathy, polarity and catharsis. Drawing on sources as varied as vaudeville, early Greek plays and Russian fairy tales, this will be a day to open your mind to the infinite future of inspired storytelling.
