About this event
Ever wondered what goes into a viral TikTok video? Join writer and TikTok star Mohammad Awad as we explore the behind-the-scenes of creating hilarious skits.
Mohammad will guide participants through storytelling techniques, editing, and leaning into the absurd. You’ll learn to channel chaotic Gen Z energy into funny videos as you brainstorm new ideas and play with character roles. This workshop is for Youth participants aged 16-24.
This workshop will be presented on Zoom. Please register with a valid email address. You will receive the Zoom link a few days before the workshop.
