The Essence of Storytelling with Christopher Vogler

At a Glance

  • Screenwriting techniques for both writers of all levels
  • Live webinar on creating deep, emotionally driven stories
  • The Hero’s Journey is the basis of many of the top-grossing films of all time

We all enjoy having strong emotional, and even physical, reactions to movies we move, but what mysterious keys unlock those responses?

During this 2-hour webinar, Chris Vogler takes you through his legendary approach to story structure based on the Hero's journey pattern found in mythology. What are they keys to an audience's emotions? What are the triggers that make an audience feel something on a subconscious level? What are the emotional patterns deeply embedded in the audience's minds that can be awakened through strong-minded, conscious storytelling? And what are the most up-to-date techniques for creating meaningful stories?

During this webinar, Chris takes you on a journey through the tools and principles you need to reach an audience on a completely different level.

Film and television can be mindless amusement or they can move us deeply, even change us by bringing us to some new awareness. If our movie stories are not meaningful to people these days it's because we have forgotten how to move them, how to stir up their emotions and lead them to experience the healthy catharsis that Aristotle speaks of. What are the keys to the emotions of the audience? What are the triggers that will make them feel something again, that will allow them to become just a little more conscious and more human? What are the emotional patterns deeply grooved in every person that can be awakened through strong-minded, conscious storytelling? What are the most up-to-date techniques for creating meaningful stories?

Outline:

  • The origins and essence of storytelling.
  • A template for story structure derived from myths
  • How to connect with the emotional centers in the body
  • How to create the powerful emotional effect of catharsis
  • Eight useful archetypes of character
  • Understanding Want and Conflict
