Christopher Vogler made documentary films as an Air Force officer before studying film production at the University of Southern California, where he encountered the ideas of mythologist Joseph Campbell and observed how they influenced the story design of the first Star Wars movie. He worked as a story consultant in the development departments of 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Pictures and Animation, and Paramount Pictures, and wrote an influential memo on Campbell’s Hero’s Journey concept that led to his involvement in Disney’s Aladdin, The Lion King and Hercules. After the publication of The Writer’s Journey, he had a hand in developing the stories of many productions, including Disney’s remake of 101 Dalmatians, Fox’s Fight Club, Courage Under Fire, Volcano, The Thin Red Line and many others. Vogler lives in Los Angeles, California.

  1. :

    Vogler’s The Writer’s Journey is the Bible for screenwriters. I think it’s the best book on how to write a screenplay ever written.

  2. :

    Great movies have great story structure — period. Nobody understands that better, and communicates it more brilliantly, than Mr. McKenna.

  3. :

    Just finished reading this and it’s already saved my ass. No shit. I needed a pitch for a rewrite and this book helped me crack it.
