Lazy Friday Video Post: “Making the Most of Mythic Structure”

This time I want to share a video from the Neoncon 2009 GamesU with you. In this 51-minutes video Matthew Grau from WildFire LLC talks about the monomyth (aka the hero’s journey) and how it can be used in creating stories.

I have to admit that’s the first video in that series that I actually enjoyed watching. Perhaps because Matthew is talking about story and not the industry. What are you thoughts on Matthew’s talk?
