DocCeleratorGalway 2022


DocCeleratorOnDemand IN GALWAY

On September 29-30 Creative Europe Desk Galway and the BAI Sectoral Learning and Development Fund in collaboration with Paradiddle Pictures are organising a special DocCeleratorOnDemand session. It is entitled DocCeleratorGalway and aimed at Irish documentary makers.

DocCelerator is an acclaimed online workshop that will bring participants real clarity to their documentary story and enable them to fully realise the dramatic potential in a story. In addition, it will save money during the production by avoiding needless shooting and unfocused editing.

Besides the three standard DocCelerator formats, which you can read about here, the workshop is also made in tailor made editions done in collaboration with local film funds, regional film offices and other industry organisations. It is called DocCelerator On Demand.

The upcoming DocCeleratorGalway takes place on September 29-30. Deadline to apply is August 18, 2022.

About DocCeleratorOnDemand

DocCeleratorOnDemand workshops are fitting the needs of your local industry either as online or onsite editions. The length of each workshop are 2-3 days and can accommodate 4-6 selected project teams, depending on the specific version. The essence of a DocCelerator workshop is to invest in the development and pre-production, in order to save money on the recording and editing and generate documentary projects with a much stronger narrative focus.


Since the launch in May 2020, we have hosted 20 editions of the workshops. Here are some of the reactions that participants have provided:


Thanks to the DocCelerator workshop and your feedback, we reworked entirely our materials. To put it simply: Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Marjolaine Grappe, Director, USA


Thank you so much for this workshop. It brought me to the core of my film and gave me lots of inspiration and motivation!

Director Sien Versteyhe, Lionheart Productions, Belgium

It was excellent! It really opened my eyes to how much can be achieved in a limited amount of time and focus. 

Emma Owen, Producer, Ireland

Besides generating creative input, DocCelerator workshops save participants many hours of working and much money in production expenses. This is achieved through a more focused narrative structure, which saves hours of recordings not fitting to the film and many days of expensive editing. The essence of DocCelerator is to invest in the development in order to save on the production.
