What makes a great commercial demo? Do I really have to hire a producer? Why?  Everybody DIY's everything - can’t I just make one myself?  And who listens to them, anyway? Join industry veteran Hugh P. Klitzke for answers to these questions and more! He will give a brief lecture with examples on the do's and don'ts of commercial demos, followed by a lengthy Q&A.  

For anyone with questions about, thoughts on and anxieties around commercial demos, this class is not to be missed!
