ESoDoc is conceived as a “lab for ideas”, where participants are encouraged to experiment with their project by exploring new creative development opportunities.

ESoDoc consists of:
  • three intense one-week residential sessions held in three different locations across Europe

  • one-to-one tutoring by international experts.

ESoDoc teaces how to:
  • think about the audience from the beginning
  • assist ground-breaking and inspiring lectures from acclaimed worldwide professionals and discover what is new, controversial and seminal in documentary film making
  • work co-creatively in big and small groups with the other participants and the experts to develop your project
  • learn how to design outreach strategies to increase the impact of the project
  • take various practical masterclasses about storytelling/writing techniques, new-media production, participatory media
  • get trained in pitching skills and present your projects in front of renowned experts at the final public pitching session
  • have a “pitching package” at the end of the workshop, composed by a refined 2-pager, visual material and presentation

All participants who want to develop a crossmedia project are asked to have a graphic designer in their team by the second session.
