Publisher's Summary

Make your story the best it can be on two levels. Hear each superstar teacher present his unique approach to story telling.

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.

    "Perfect Workshop"

    Great book to listen to while obsessing over your story. They'll walk you through your own story and help you fill in the blanks and beef up your characters

    "Writing wisdom not to miss..."

    Experience, expertise, and wisdom on writing that every single screenwriter and novel writer should listen to – these two are brilliant and I highly recommend listening here as well as going to the live workshops.

    "Great Insight for writers!"

    I like this title because it offered real insight into the process of understanding screenplay writing and the soul of that creative process. A must for any screenwriters or creative writers.

    "Great for new writers"

    This workshop is great for people who are forming ideas for a novel or screenplay. The structures that Hague and Vogler talk about aren't cumbersome or limiting--they actually help you to go deeper and generate exciting characters and story lines. And the fact that it's only three hours makes it short and punchy, so that you can get to work as soon as you've finished listening.

    The audio is very good, considering it's a recorded workshop.

    "Another hit out of the park!"

    I've heard Hauge live twice, and Vogler is a great addition. To me, the concepts presented here BC make "keeper" books and movies - the ones which stand out.

    "Short but packed with information"

    This audio book is actually a recording of a seminar given by Michael Hauge and Christopher Vogler. Although geared toward screenwriters, it is also invaluable for novelists as it helps map out both the plot (the outer journey) and the theme (the inner journey) of a story. They give examples from several movies, most notably The Firm and Shreck, though several others are mentioned, to illustrate their points. I listened to it several times and even took notes. This is the type of information writers need in order to make their stories resonate with their readers, whether they write screenplays or novels.

    "Really Good Seminar"

    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!

    "Great for storytellers of all kinds"

    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!
