This project looks at the creation of a fantasy world and the fantasy genre in films, and analyses it as a whole. The fantasy genre is often seen as a means of escapism and is many times overlooked in terms of storytelling. In this project, I shall delve into the identifiable tropes and clich?s that are prevalent in the fantasy quest genre, in particular, the Hero?s Journey. I show my own building of a fantasy world and the problems that I faced in writing a fantasy film script, and my attempt to balance the use of the tropes and find new ways of writing in the genre. The project also covers some of the limitations in available literature on the fantasy genre in regards to a female protagonist.
