Project Development


Paradiddle Pictures offers workshops and seminars on documentary project development, including aspects of story construction, narrative development, project presentation, financing plans and market potential.

The format can be:

  • seminars and lectures
  • project based workshops
  • tailor made programs.

Developing new documentary projects combines creative, financial and market considerations. With this focus on project development, essential elements of telling stories with an international perspective and optimizing their market potential will be featured.

Included are essential considerations like strengthening story structures, creating realistic production frames, mapping potential funding partners and outlining potential distribution routes.

Ove Rishøj Jensen currently serves as Head of Studies for the documentary development programs Dox in Vitro, Beldocs Kids&Youth and RealYoung among others.

The focus on project development is also available as an individual consultation and mentorship service.
