What Makes a Movie Magical?
Chagford Film Fesitval
Thursday 26th September
10.00am to 5.00pm
I’m honoured to be invited to present at the Chagford Film Festival this year.
I’m running a workshop that will take you behind the scenes to reveal the secret that makes a movie magical.
It’s this secret that has made movies like Star Wars, E.T., Avatar, The Lord of the Rings and Bohemian Rhapsody such huge box office hits and multiple Oscar winners.
The secret is called The Hero’s Journey. It is a mythical structure that each of the writers and directors of these movies has purposefully woven into their scripts. This is also the reason these films, and many like them, impact us so deeply. It’s because they portray the timeless human journey of transformation, which is there for all of us to embark upon.
During the workshop, I'll elaborate on The Hero’s Journey, and then screen Bohemian Rhapsody. You’ll experience first-hand how The Hero’s Journey has been artfully woven into this magnificent film.
After the screening, I'll lead a Q&A, where you’ll have the opportunity to share the insights you’ve gained about The Hero’s Journey from watching the movie.
By the end of the workshop you’ll develop a deep discernment of what makes a movie magical.
You’ll also learn how you can use Bohemian Rhapsody, and other great films, as sources of inspiration, to purposefully utilise The Hero’s Journey to transform your own life.
