Visual Exquisite Corpse

The “Exquisite Corpse” is a technique for (usually written)collaborative story creation. In this workshop, students work in groups to invent a rough storyline, film part of their story with iPads or MacBooks, and then rotate the resulting videos among groups, with each new group adding to the story based on the last few seconds of previous footage. The final products are somewhat patched-together video stories with a piece from every group. The workshop combines filming and video editing techniques with story-making and performance.
