How Video Can Improve Your Next Pitch

Pitching for a new project, job or client can be a stressful time.

Filming live sessions for BBC's The Beat

Last week's session with Billie received 60,000 views in 6 days! As you may or may not know, the physical space in a Radio studio is relatively small. So one of the initial challenges with filming live sessions in the studio is being able to physically set your cameras where you want them.
