Presentation Transcript

  1. Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey

  2. Overview

  3. Ordinary World • The hero’s “normal” world, before the adventure • Sometimes at the very beginning, but sometimes shown throughout the first part of the movie

  4. Call to Adventure • The herald arrives, presenting the hero with adventure

  5. Refusal of the Call • Often, the hero will turn down the adventure • Fear and uncertainty • Even if a hero is willing, the audience understands the high stakes

  6. Meeting the Mentor • Traditionally, grandparent or godparent figure • May be anyone, including friends • Usually happens at beginning, but may happen more than once

  7. Overview

  8. Crossing the Threshold • Venturing into a new, unexplored land • May be a literal new place, or may be a new experience • Often guarded by threshold guardians

  9. Tests, Enemies, Allies • This is where most of the story lies • Hero faces more conflicts, threshold guardians • Hero may also gain some allies along the way

  10. Ordeal • A major crisis for the hero • Often includes a death or a brush with death. • This can be figurative—death of reputation, death of love • Hero’s adventure appears doomed • NOT the climax

  11. Reward • After the crisis comes the reward. • The reward might be an object • More often it’s a celebration or knowledge gained

  12. Overview

  13. The Road Back • The hero must recommit to her adventure • The journey starts its return to the ordinary world

  14. Resurrection • Climax of the story! • The hero defeats his faults and defeats the shadow. • Often affects more people than just the hero • Sacrifice often plays an important role here • The hero is permanently changed

  15. Return with the Elixir • Hero returns home with an “elixir”—an important lesson, a reward, or a cure for others • Sometimes the hero isn’t necessarily happier
