The Hero’s Journey is the template upon which the vast majority of successful stories and Hollywood blockbusters are based upon. In fact, ALL of the Hollywood movies we have deconstructed are based on this template.

Raid Array Compare prices on retail products. Find online merchants.

Understanding this template is a priority for story or screenwriters.

The Hero’s Journey:

a) Attempts to tap into unconscious expectations the audience has regarding what a story is and how it should be told.

b) Gives the writer more structural elements than simply three or four acts, plot points, mid point and so on.

c) Gives you a tangible process for building and releasing dissonance (establishing and achieving catharsis).

d) Gives you a universal structural template upon which you can superimpose your situational story.

Sitcom Writing

I recently had a question regarding “low cost, minimal scenes, few actors” screenplays. How could the Hero’s Journey be applied to that?

Array Class (System) Provides methods for creating, manipulating, searching, and sorting arrays, thereby serving as the base class for all arrays in the common language runtime.

The best “low cost, minimal scenes, few actors” application of the Hero’s Journey is sitcom.

Take an episode of Will and Grace:

Call to Adventure:

A Story: Grace and Keren meet the new clients: a just married couple. Have to decorate their apartment.

B Story: Will and Jack go to the gay bookshop; decide to help stop it form closing down.
