©2002 Christopher Vogler; (P)2002 Writer's AudioShop
I make my living as a truck driver. I fill the space between deliveries with audio books.
The ideas in this lecture are covered in "The Hero's 2 journeys." That lecture is a tag-team effort from Chris Vogel and Michael Hauge and covers much more ground. If you have already listened to that lecture and want more of Vogel's ideas, this lecture has a few extra details and a little more depth.
I'm no writer, but I have some ideas that I want to turn into stories. In light of that, I thought this was informative. When I start putting pen to paper I will make sure to listen to this again, and take some notes.
In addition, this gives new perspective to enjoying TV shows, books, movies, or other types of storytelling media.
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
Christopher Vogler breaks down his craft into easy to understand points and elaborates on them without causing any confusion or lack of fun. He is good and if you want to tell a story, then this lecture is worth listening to. My copy had a slight audio problem but the points got across nicely.
This presentation is taken from a Chris Vogler segment at a writer's conference. It is just fantastic, packed full of such good information that I took notes all the way through and of course laughed my head off at Chris's great sense of humor. I pray that Audible will do more "mini books" like this one especially on writing.
Life's too short to read bad books.
I already knew most of what was discussed here and was already using it in my writing. I have 45 Master Characters and it drew pretty much from that book.
"Great pace, illustrations and clarity"
This is Mr Vogler's personal spin on Joseph Campbell's inspiring work - an audio-book which did everything I had hoped for.
You'll probably find yourself running your own story-line alongside Vogler's model; a process which both exposes weaknesses and suggests solutions. His delivery is energetic, passionate and has a great lightness of touch - lots of good humor. He is a superb communicator.
Truly riveting and highly recommended for anyone interested in how a good story works.
