Your music in Movies TV & Other Media – how can it get there and how it supports your career as an artist/group or composer.
Many composers and musicians wish to write music for feature films or have success as a performing artist. It is common knowledge that this is a big and long term goal. The music licensing market can support you financially and even promotionally while working towards that goal.
This workshop shows with specific examples and audio, which income and promotions possibilities exist in the music licensing market and how it can bring you closer to your big goal
The participants bring their own music and we analyse it and in comparison to the examples we will discuss in detail, what, where, how and why something works for the music licensing market respectively which special criteria the music licensing market has.
The participants receive before the workshop a Hand-Out via email in which the most important legal and music licensing specific terms are listed and ex- plained.
Martin Haene, composer & producer for music in media. His credits are among others international feature films from Dreamworks, Lions Gate, Universal, etc. (www.martytone.com).
Panos Kolias, composer, producer & musician. His credits are international TV shows, award wining short movies , trailer music for Lions Gate, remixes, online advertising, etc. (www.panoskolias.com).
The goal of this workshop is to give answers to questions like:
• Where does the music we hear daily in movies, TV-series, advertising, online videos, telephone on-hold-music, etc. come?
• How can the music licensing market help my career as film composer?
• How can I take advantage of my credits in movies and tv-series for my performing career or when talking to directors?
• How can I create a steady income stream when I am not performing or have a composition commission?
• How can I have a second income form my released CDs except sales, donwloads or concerts?
The workshop consists of three parts
1. How should the music be crafted to be interesting for the music licensing market. What does work, what not and why?
2. The music is done and fits the licensing criteria – how can I get it to be licensed in the movies?
3. How can I take advantage of my placements in movies and tv-series financially and promotionally for my performing or composer career?
