As everyone knows, a career n the entertainment industry can be either “feast or famine”. One second you’re on an Avenger’s Movie, or Walking Dead shoot, the next you’re waiting by the phone for another job. Finding your next big gig on a film or TV show can be difficult, but few consider the opportunities in the commercial industry. For filmmakers, the advertising sector can be an amazing option, with shorter turnaround times, and just as big (or bigger) payoffs!

These 3 courses give an overview on commercials, plus tips and tricks on how to keep up in the fast-paced video advertising industry. Take a class individually, or save by signing up for all 3. Spots are limited, so register today to secure your seat.
