The "Outer Journey" is the essential structural principles driving every successful plot. Each brings years of practical experience and extensive research to story structure, character arc, and how to give your story greater commercial appeal. Full of specific examples.
The "Inner Journey" is the deeper storyline that makes a story truly great. Hauge's view: The Hero moves from hiding within a protective identity to experiencing his or her true essence. Vogler's view: The Hero's inner need is invisible at first, but is revealed to the Hero by the end of the story. Full of specific examples.
This is ideal listening for all writers (including screenwriters, novelists, and playwrights), actors, filmmakers, studio executives, game designers and developers, storytellers, and anyone with a passion for movies and stories.

Mainly a sci-fi, and fantasy junkie who also enjoys horror, whodunnits, and books about animals and sports. I'm also an amateur filmmaker.
This is a recorded seminary by Hauge and Volgler where they talk about "The Hero's Journey", and then supplement that by talking about a second "inner journey". I really liked it, great great stuff, and is already helping me.
My only complaint is at the end Vogler tried to tie the "inner journey" idea back to his "Writer's Journey" thing, and that was pretty lame quite frankly. He couldn't give credible examples that made any sense, so that fell flat. That was a wasted 15min or so, oh well, still definitely worth it though!
Incredible Stories. Inner-Credible Kids.
I enjoyed the contrast between Michael and Christopher's teachings.
Christopher has more steps, intricately woven together, while Michael delivers hard hitting insights in fewer steps.
Useful resource to listen to while writing!
I will listen to this over and over again, for as long as I wish to watch and write wonderful movies.
I loved this. I've listened to it over and over. I'm a producer. When I work with a writer, and I can't figure out what it is that's missing, I listen to this again with the particular script in mind. It helps me recognize where we can improve the story.
This is a great book for any writer, director or storyteller of any kind. If you are serious about making meaningful stories, you need this.
Very nice and compact presentation with LOTS of great take aways. I m going to be reading more about both presenters, they are masters at storytelling.
Enjoying life, taking time to be myself, trust me it's a hoot!
I've read many books on writing, and it's hard to go back to point and shoot books on stories and how they should be approached
I had a huge breakthrough with my story development after listening to this workshop. It was extremely insightful and has really inspired me
If any of my friends develop an interest in writing novels or screenplays, I would definitely recommend this audio book. I read Christopher Vogler's book "The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers". Getting to hear him share some of that information was a good experience. I found Michael Hauge's information to be interesting and helpful too.
Hauge and Vogler agree on some matters but not others. The contrasting opinions add a valuable dimension.
This was great. Just a little over three hours, but very insightful and helpful. I bought this for Vogler, but I ended up really enjoying Hague. His examples are excellent and he cuts straight to the heart of a great story. I learned a lot from this audiobook. Highly recommend it!
