The Hero’s Journey

Using these diagrams helps us understand and visualise  what Christopher Voglers book tells us. Below, using the famous fairy tale of Cinderella, we can see and understand how the story plot moves and works, its amazing that this really is the layout of every film i can think of.

Here it is without Cinderella’s plot, think of any film, wether it be star wars, iron man, rain man etc it works with every single one.

Seeing  a movie laid out in acts helps me visualise the story and where each act ends and begins and what normally happens within these acts.
