  1. Thanks for the videos. They were very helpful.
    Are you able to give any indication of budget.. was it in the £50,000 or £100,000 or more range?
    How do you stop your ideas submitted during the bid process being re-used without your permission if you were unsuccessful?
    Was the job profitable?
    Simple question… or maybe not… what is the software you use with your fellow creatives when putting together the treatment?

    This was a fantastic series to watch — I learned so much about the complexity and challenges in doing even short commercial clips like these. I’ll never do anything like this myself, but it was fascinating to watch these. Many thanks to Barry and you, Karl, for making this available!
