The 188 phase Hero's Journey (Monomyth) is the templet upon which the huge bulk of successful narratives and Film Industry blockbusters are based upon. In fact, ALL of the 100s of Film Industry movies we have got deconstructed (see uniform resource locator below) are based on this 188+ phase template.
Understanding this templet is a precedence for narrative or screenwriters. This is the templet you must get the hang if you are to win in the craft.
[The nomenclature is most often metaphorical and uses to all successful narratives and screenplays, from The Godfather (1972) to Brokeback Mountain (2006) to Annie Hallway (1977) to Godhead of the Rings (2003) to Drugstore Cowboy (1989) to Thelma and Louise (1991) to Apocalypse Now (1979)].
THERE IS ONLY ONE STORY
THE 188 phase HERO'S JOURNEY:
a) Attempts to tap into unconscious outlooks the audience have regarding what a narrative is and how it should be told.
b) Gives the author more structural elements than simply three or four acts, secret plan points, mid point and so on.
c) Gives you a tangible procedure for edifice and releasing disagreement (establishing and achieving catharses, of which there are usually four).
d) Tells you what to write. For example, at a certain phase of the story, the focusing should be on the Call to Adventure and the micro elements within.
