Beyond the Hero’s Journey: A screenwriting guide for when you’ve got a different story to tell

Author(s): Anthony Mullins


Telling a story is simple, right? You take a ‘hero’ character and send them on a ‘journey’. There’s a beginning, middle and an end.But what if your story doesn’t fit into that basic structure? In Beyond the Hero’s Journey, BAFTA award-winning screenwriter, Anthony Mullins presents an accessible, versatile and highly visual alternative to writing, that dramatically expands the range of narratives open to writers, both emerging and experienced.Fun and easy-to-use, this book looks at much-loved films from around the world, including Moonlight, Lady Bird, The Social Network, The Godfather, A Fantastic Woman, Mulholland Drive, Shoplifters, Amour, Inside Llewyn Davis and Call Me By Your Name, to teach you the ins and outs of writing for the screen through identifying and taking control of character arcs.Beyond the Hero’s Journey is for every writer who has felt frustrated by the neat confines of writing guides. It will teach you to explore and excel in telling more complex, intricate and authentic stories — and show you how to share your own distinctive, original voice with the world.‘Beyond the Hero’s Journey will inspire you to rethink screenwriting … I cannot recommend Anthony Mullins’ approach enough; he has found a powerful path to the heart of story.’ – Jeff Rush, co-author of Alternative Scriptwriting: Beyond the Hollywood formula
