Presentation: Integral Filmmaking: Dimensions of Heroes Journeys
The classical map of Hero’s Journey (Campbell-Lukas-Vogler) is uncompleted. It works rather well, but only in a certain (mythological) domain which is unreasonably spread over by numerous followers as universal structure for whole human life. The integral cartography of the hero’s journey is connected with the ancient shamanic three-dimensional chart of reality with special emphasis on the four-quadrant middle world (human or existential domain). So, there exist three different kinds of the Hero’s journeys – Mythological (Submitting life energies), Existential (Growing Up), and Spiritual (Waking Up), – that have different textual, semantic and historical base, structure and meaning. Existential Hero’s journey can be further presented as six Journeys of the ways we grow in personal domain: Growing Up (vertical), Cleaning Up, Relating Up, Showing Up, Realizing Up, Centering Up. This provides new opportunities for understanding the filmmaking and the mechanisms of mass media and mass culture influence.
