    • Robert McKee Robert McKee is an accomplished writer, director, playwright and writing instructor. McKee looks into the narrative design of work and what makes the story compelling or not. Similar to other ideas from theorists, Mckee proposes that media texts follow a set of stages; Firstly the inciting incident where some form of event occurs which starts the story. Secondly comes the progressive complications where bad events keep on continuing for one particular character. The situation keeps on getting worse until the crisis is reached. It seems as if things cannot possibly get any worse for the main characters thus reaching the climax, meaning drastic action is needed to help salvage back any chance of peace. As a result the action works and problem is fixed in the resolution. http://www.storylogue.com/page/1/about-robert-mckee.html http://www.slideshare.net/smcmediastudies/2012-narrative-theories Christopher Vogler Vogler also believed that media texts have a range of different characters all going through particular stages within a story. Vogler believed that characters go through 12 separate stages; 1) Ordinary world 2) Call to adventure 3) Refusal of the call 4) Meeting of the mentor
    • 5) Crossing the first threshold 6) Test, aliens, enemy 7) Approach to the inmost cave 8) Supreme ordeal 9) Reward 10) The road back 11) Resurrection 12) Return with the elixir Adding to this, he also believed that certain characters had particular functions that are important towards the text. Firstly the hero’s purpose is to serve and sacrifice. The mentor’s is so guide. The threshold guardian is to test, the shape-shifter’s to question and deceive and the shadow is to destroy.
