Myth

The mythical journey is the only sure path to a smash hit. Myth is the foundation of more blockbusters than any other genre by far. One reason for this is that myths show us archetypal characters and life changes that transcend cultures. The myth form travels the world better than any other genre. Audiences love it, so studio executives love it too.

The MYTH COURSE, the most comprehensive class on myth you will find anywhere, explains the huge success of films as different as The Dark Knight, Star Wars, and Crocodile Dundee. It tells you the key story beats of the genre, along with techniques for updating the great myths of the past, then lays out a detailed blueprint for the 10 major myth forms that will likely define worldwide storytelling in the future.
