Storytelling is what distinguishes man from animal. The stories we enact significantly influence how we perceive, conceive, and shape the world around us. In this new series “The Power of Film”, Mike Hill and I inspect the architecture of storytelling through the prism of modern film in an effort to reveal the most profound depths of the human operating system. 

Mike is a veteran film and game designer for blockbusters like Love, Death and Robots, Call of Duty, Game of Thrones, Blade Runner 2049, and Dune to name a few. Using his insights from years of experience, we’ll look at the Hero in cinema and explore the timeless narratives of two iconic film franchises – “The Matrix” and “Star Wars” – through the profound lens of Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth. 

As we delve into the Hero’s Journey we’ll explore the hidden layers of symbolism, archetypes, and mythological elements that have cemented these movies as cultural phenomena.
