What style of doc is it mocking?

I'd say that you would want to be very heavy handed. Super-dramatic ambiences and over the top transitions. Gigantic piano/synth hits when something important happens.

Oh, and reverse everything. Very dramatic.

Only half serious... It's been a while since I last watched a feature length, but if you watch any of the current reality shows (which may as well be mockumentaries) they're covered in stuff like that. – g.a.harry Apr 21 '11 at 20:17

Lots of wind in your microphone.
