On of my favorite approaches to storytelling is the Monomyth. The idea that all stories are essentially linked through the structure to our understanding of myth and legend.


Starting from Joseph Campbell’s book, “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”, the idea that there is a mythic structure to stories is interesting.

However, when applied to films it becomes even more interesting, as discussed at NoFilmSchool.

Christopher Vogler’s Book, “The Writers Journey” builds on his fax to Disney where he discussed applying this to films. He then proved it by writing “The Lion King”.
