Doc Tank is a development lab for transmedia and socially engaged documentary projects, which offers consultation and guidance on project's storytelling techniques, on designing the campaign strategy or recommends solutions for web and mobile apps. Doc Tank tutors and experts range from transmedia storytelling and production specialists, content management and distribution experts, crowdfunding and campaign strategists, etc.
