One of my clubs, the Gwinnett Woodworkers Association had Lyle Jamieson do a presentation like this and I was impressed. It was absolutely like he was there in person.
Advantages to a club:
- The opportunity to see a demonstrator they could not get to their club meeting.
- Lower costs because there are no travel costs.
- Often, better video than a club gets with their own camera operator and equipment because the demonstrator has a better lighting and video setup than a club might have. I use three or four different cameras for my remote demonstrations.
- No travel
- No packing and unpacking
- Using their own equipment with more options to show tools and have backup if there is some type of equipment failure
