If you've ever studied creative writing, you're likely familiar with the work of Joseph Campbell, the architect of the Monomyth, better known as "the hero's journey." In his work, Campbell lays out the 17 narrative stages every heroes walks in the course of his story. As part of his University graduation project, Iskander Krayenbosch put together this excellent video explaining those stages.
"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. In the hero’s journey 12 of these stages are visualized by using iconic blockbuster movies that follow the same structure of storytelling."
