A hypothetical situation and a question

Let's say an American film maker, an Egyptian poet, a German philosopher, a Mande jeli, a Chinese monk, and a Bolivian singer were to gather in a room to collaborate on a story.  What story form do you think they would use and what might be some of the elements of that story?

Assume the American Filmmaker is Michael Bay. Then the resulting narrative would be a film. Specifically, Transformers 4: More Explosions.

Verbal. The second part of the question will take some thought.

This sounds like the truth behind the name Edward Whittemore.

some sort of Proppian folk-tale, maybe thusly deconstructed.
and regarding elements, perhaps we should begin with the characters, namely "an American film maker, an Egyptian poet, a German philosopher, a Mande jeli, a Chinese monk, and a Bolivian singer," every one of them beginning in their respective corner of the world, or just one country to the left of that corner.
