Hi, I’m Adam Dobay.
I come from a background in film theory and a decade spent in film production as writer, script doctor and translator, immersing myself in comparative mythology and gender studies on the side. To gain actual field experience on the workings of the human psyche, I also assisted the work of the renowned Japanese cultural anthropologist Dr. Saya Shiraishi, Jungian therapist Dr. Frank Cardelle, PhD., and non-duality teacher and second-generation Ramana Maharishi disciple Akos Prakash Voros.
I specialize in film storytelling and story patterns and I’m now bringing all my different subjects together in the Moon Rabbit project.
Over the past ten years, I’ve held over 400 talks on modern Japanese and Western fusion mythologies expressed through film, animation and the new golden age of television.
I also ran a two-semester undergraduate course, Therapy and Enlightenment in Anime for two years at the Dharma Gate Buddhist College back in Hungary.
I continue my research and live teaching work in the vibrant subcultural haven of Brighton, UK, where I’ve been collaborating with Picturehouse Cinemas since 2016 on talks and Q&A sessions with topics ranging from Studio Ghibli to Star Wars mythology to the new generation of female-led storytelling.
