Christopher Vogler is a Hollywood development executive, screenwriter, author and educator, best known for working with Disney and his screenwriting guide, ‘The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure For Writers.’
He studied filmmaking at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts and was inspired by the writings of mythologist Joseph Campbell, particularly The Hero with a Thousand Faces, which detailed the Hero’s Journey archetype in classical mythology.
Vogler used Campbell’s work to create a 7-page company memo for Hollywood screenwriters, A Practical Guide to The Hero with a Thousand Faces, which Vogler later developed into ‘The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure For Writers.’ Vogler has since spun off his techniques into a worldwide Masterclass.
Vogler has worked for Disney Studios, Fox 2000 Pictures, and Warner Bros. in the development department. He contributed story material to the Disney animated feature The Lion King.
