Format Strategy for Series and Documentary Lengths > There are a number of variables that should be taken into consideration from the start of any project. With a series, the amount of content available will play a big role in the decision to go with, for instance, a six to eight part, 30 or 60 minute per episode format or four to seven episodes that might add up to 45 to 60 minutes in total content. Distribution and intended audience are also key factors with the options and corresponding policies of commercial television, PBS formatting or the web's new media strategies guiding these decisions. With web distribution, there there are far less stringent, but still guiding requirements and policies. Regarding documentaries, there are no real rules dictating the length. A full length feature could run anywhere from 44 minutes to more than 2 hours. On the other hand, the length of a mini-documentary might be anywhere from 2-25 minutes and can be a great way to share your story if you don’t have the time or budget (or need) for a full length feature format. A mini-documentary might also be referred to as a short film, mini-doc or documercial. This format can be an extremely effective way to get a message or story across in a limited amount of time for the private, commercial and governmental sectors. A common way that mini-documentaries or documercials are used is to share the story or mission of a non-profit organization or business. Of course, available budgets for all phases of production and intended distribution, packaging and marketing are always going to play key roles in decisions regarding content formats. Every assignment for us begins by working directly with you and your team to provide forward-thinking, collaborative guidance related to project scope, conceptual vision, distribution and related budgetary options to address these factors up front.
