Shahoots and VaderAs we move forward to our crowdfunding for Shahoots, we want to acknowledge some of our inspirations.

Sources of Inspiration for Shahoots® #1

Joseph John Campbell was an American mythologist, writer and lecturer, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work is vast, covering many aspects of the human experience”. (Wikipedia)

He has had a profound impact on storytelling and storytellers.

In books like “Man with a Thousand Masks” and the four volume set of ‘The Masks of God’ with mythology and stories from around the world plus a wonderful series ‘The Power of Myth’ with Bill Moyers for PBS (US broadcasting service and  available on Youtube), he has invented the modern storytelling genre.

From the George Lucas’ ‘Star Wars’ (and indeed moviemakers in general) to bands like the Grateful Dead, Joseph Campbell has had a profound impact on our culture, our beliefs, the way we tell stories and the way we view ourselves and the world.

And that goes for Shahoots as well!
