Toufic Khoury: Shared storytelling and writing in critical contexts

Tuesday and Thursday at 12-15
Classroom 30011

Saint-Joseph University of Beirut

This workshop deals with screenwriting theory and practice and is mainly centered on an exercise of World-building and shared storytelling: the class works as a team of screenwriters headed by a teacher filling the role of a showrunner. The team creates a potential Bible for an anthology, based on one genre (ex. Dystopia, Film noir) and a Theme (ex. Memory, Loss, Illusion, Trauma…). The exercise helps students to define their writing based on generic codes that will serve as a common frame for personal stories, often based on difficult experiences.
