The dates and deadlines for the Spring 2024 DocCelerator workshop series are now out. DocCelerator is an acclaimed 2-day online workshop that will bring real clarity to your documentary story and enable you to fully realise the dramatic potential in your story. In addition, it will save you money by avoiding needless shooting and unfocused editing.


During the 2-day online DocCelerator workshop, you will as a participant learn a set of tools for structuring documentary stories. They are tools that can use for your current as well as for future projects.

For the Spring 2024 season of DocCelerator, there are two different formats of the workshop available, focusing on either story development or projects that are work in progress. As a documentary maker, you can pick the one that fits best to your current needs.

About DocCelerator

DocCelerator is a series of stand-alone online documentary workshops, providing documentary makers a method for a clearer dramaturgical structure in documentary projects. 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.
