The Doc Fix

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to some of the questions you might have about the methodology, how it works and whether it's a good fit for you. Please ask if you'd like to know more.

In December I was interviewed for the World Congress of Science and Factual Producers. I went through some of the ideas behind The Doc Fix, and how they were used in a David Attenborough documentary, and the Netflix series Formula 1: Drive to Survive. If you want to join us and see how this approach can work for you, please go here to get a case study that outlines our methods.

Does it Work with Any Format or Genre

It does. My experience with these methods includes history and science documentary, feature documentary in music, art and history as well as sports, entertainment and natural history. There are blog posts (Jack of All Trades, Hard Science ) where I talk about how using these methods has opened me up to working on stories in any genre.

There is a huge difference in having massive expertise in a particular genre or format (which many people I have worked with have) and a universal approach that can be applied to all stories. The methods I teach apply universally to structure any story, and then allow you to use your own particular approaches with the knowledge that your structure is sound.
