Force Fest 2020: The DIY Hero’s Journey — Turning Your Fandom Into Creation

By: Dominic Jones

From the first ever Force Fest virtual convention, Dominic Jones (The Star Wars Underworld Podcast) moderates a discussion with musician Din (F-105 and The Soles) and cosplayer Kareem (Order 416) about Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey and how it can be applied in one’s creative expression. The discussion, presented with additional visual enhancements, is framed around Din's music as they follow the steps in the journey through five of his songs. They explore how Campbell's work, plus a heavy dose of Star Wars, provided the tools that finally helped him find an audience. The intention of the panel is to show how these tools can help any artistic creator in fandom, by demonstrating how it will help their creation connect to others more successfully!
