The hero’s journey is a storytelling method introduced by Joseph Campbell who analyzed vast numbers of myths and fairy tales. He found that all heroes follow a journey with 12 distinct steps, although not all 12 are mandatory for the story.
Storytelling is an established and popular tool for movies, television, comics and many other areas of visual media. Storyboards help to add real-world context. People, places and e.g. devices will be involved and it is easier to keep your mind on the flow.
