Reading and viewing materials on Storytelling & Digital Production
Before we begin, we would like to help you prepare for the workshops. For the full introduction to the hero’s journey and modern storytelling tact please download our document ‘The Hero Hidden Within’ here which should enlighten you further to the principles of story and give you a head start on what we will be diving into and exploring together.
For further exploration if that really isnt enough for you, we have a feature documentary for your viewing pleasure which is a compilation of various influential faces debating the value the Hero’s Journey holds in our lives… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3LozCNO30w
There are some classic cinema we would like you to familiarize yourself with, don’t worry if you don’t have the time to watch every one before the course commences, but it would be useful to watch at least one of them before hand, and watch more as the course progresses and we get deeper into the storytelling process.
If you have seen these movies before you will already be ahead of the game. Please find some resources to the film below, if you happen to have the DVD’s lying around or have alternative resources to these materials please feel free to use them:

We will be talking about the various patterns within the story frame work during the workshops so the better you know these materials the easier it will be to follow.
