Talk Theme: The concept of story is as old as human experience, language, and the desire to make sense of our existence. Throughout this lecture we will explore the origins of story, its archetypal structure in myth, and we’ll focus on how these journey patterns are fundamental in various art mediums; including Film, TV, Video Games & Digital Design.
