Intimate Pitch Meetings with Film & TV Music Supervisors
Session #4 with Aperture Music's Jonathan Leahy
Moved to Wednesday, June 20, 2012
at Universal Mastering Studios in Los Angeles, CA
Limited enrollment of 16 people per session guarantees face-time, registrants get brief of supervisor’s CURRENT music needs, a chance to pitch plus immediate feedback. In NARIP’s intimate session, you get to meet and pitch Leahy for current opportunities on the spot, receiving instant feedback as to whether a song is appropriate or not, and WHY. This valuable feedback makes better pitches – and ultimately, placements – possible. In some cases, participants even have time to re-work their music to better fit a supervisors’ needs.
Music licensing has grown increasing important as a vehicle to expose and market music. At NARIP's Music Supervisor Sessions, participants get the inside track on how top music supervisors select music for their projects and do business. Limited enrollment guarantees face-time, one-on-one feedback to music from these career-makers.
Placements secured and professional relationships formed through these meetings are so good that we felt this format would work well for those who represent catalogs and/or seek intimate pitch opportunities.
