      I’ve been asked by a local store to do a 30 second television commercial. The store owner has asked me to put a donut in the middle. Does anyone have any experience doing this? This will be my first commercial to shoot…. what da heck is a donut? (I think it maybe where the beginning and end of the commercial stay the same, but different content can be added in the middle – but not sure).

      Thanks for any help!!!!!!!

      A “Donut” is where you have a beginning and an end and a place in the middle for a voice over or video to be inserted. The spot begins then there may be a background with music or some visual ques and a local sponsor is inserted. This way the same commercial can be used for different sponsors or even different advertisements.

      This is an interesting concept. Does anyone have any links, say, to Youtube that might demonstrate an example of a dounut?

      The best example is your basic tour spot of bands and such. Think of it as a template, ready to be tagged for local use.
