- Incorporate video clips of your live performances at weddings into your demo tapes. As long as the ﬁlm quality is apparent, you can save a bundle in shooting costs. You’ll need to get permission from the bride to use the video as a demo. As a gesture of goodwill, you will also need to credit the videographer in the ﬁlm.
- Record the video demo ﬁrst, and then use its soundtrack for your audio demo.
- Extract stills from your video demo to use as promotional photos.
