Link: What Makes a Hero?

Jan 8, 2013 by     Comments Off on Link: What Makes a Hero?    Posted under: Cool stuff on the Internet
The “Ted talks” folks post a series of educational videos.  This one’s a terrific summation of Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, and the animation is pretty snazzy, too.  It’s engaging, uplifting, ideal for kids.  Posted here so I don’t lose it …

The video cites Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games and that Potter kid, and will surely make you think of that most studied application of Campbell, Star Wars.  Find the video on the Ted Ed site,  with links to other videos about story.  Because I can’t get the stupid YouTube embed coding to work right.

And just so the post doesn’t look too anemic, a few screen grabs to give you a taste.
