Puppetmastery of The Hero’s Journey

by Larry Brooks

Some of you may have seen this before. If so, always worth another pass, because it’s a hoot.

If not… you’re in for a fresh hoot. This is The Hero’s Journey, as (this, I promise) you’ve never seen it presented before.

Two quick things: turn it up, listen to the “dialogue” in the film clips within. Pretty clever. And, notice the black and white portrait of Joseph Campell on the wall (he who basically invented “the hero’s journey).”

And despite all the hootiness, there’s some real meat here to learn about storytelling.  Enjoy!
