WHAT TO EXPECT AT A NARIP MUSIC SUPERVISOR SESSION:
PREPARATION IS KEY
NARIP Music Supervisor Sessions are limited to an enrollment of just 16 people. About one week prior to NARIP’s Session, all registrants will get a brief of the guest supervisor’s then-CURRENT music needs. Each registrant will have a chance to pitch in response to the music briefs provided and get immediate feedback to music pitched. Each participant must submit 7 songs (MP3s only please) 36 hours prior to NARIP’s Music Supervisor Session. Please note that due to time constraints you will only be able to pitch your TOP 3 songs for consideration and immediate feedback (more, if time permits). This process takes the mystery out of why a piece of music does or doesn’t fit. On-the-spot feedback enables registrants to re-work tracks and re-submit, which creates a much higher probability to get them licensed (choose well!).
If you do not have music that matches the current needs of the supervisor, fear not! You can still attend and present the top three songs in your catalog. Make sure the songs are unique and captivating. This is helpful because a music supervisor’s needs change constantly. To optimize impact of music you pitch at NARIP’s Music Supervisor Session, we highly recommend that you target the briefs. Good luck and see you there!
BEFORE NARIP’S PITCH SESSION:
- NARIP prepares a one-sheet for each participant including your photo and bio for the guest music supervisor to use and review at the event, and to take with him after the event. We will request your photo and bio one week prior to the event. In preparing these materials, we recommend you focus on brief career highlights in your bio and have a professional photo available.
- Approximately 5 to 7 days prior to NARIP’s Session, you will be sent a project brief describing several cues needed for a current project(s) of our guest speaker. These often include reference songs or links so that you can hear exactly what he seeks or needs to replace.
- You will submit your tracks with writer, publisher and other rights holder information that will also be supplied to the music supervisor during and after NARIP’s Session.
- You will get submission and meta-tagging guidelines, and mentoring as to how best to prepare your music for submission.
DURING NARIP’S PITCH SESSION:
- You will get to play at least three songs (sometimes more, if time permits) for the guest music supervisor who will provide feedback to you for each one.
- NARIP moderator asks very specific questions to help participants learn and understand how to modify their tracks to make these more place-able for the guest supervisor’s specific needs at hand.
AFTER NARIP’S PITCH SESSION:
- NARIP provides guest music supervisor with participant one-sheets and all music from NARIP’s Session, including notes detailing the guest music supervisor’s interest in specific tracks.
- If requested by guest music supervisor, NARIP conveys additional tracks, remixes, instrumentals etc. to him.
- If approved by guest music supervisor, NARIP provides his contact details to registrants.
DON’T GET LOST IN THE CROWD: SMALL IS THE NEW BIG
NARIP Sessions are deliberately kept small and intimate, which is just one reason they work so well and why participants have enjoyed almost 600 placements to date. Limited enrollment of 16 people per session guarantees that registrants meet and get face-time with our guest.

ABOUT JULIA MICHELS
Julia Michels has spent over two decades working in the film music industry and has had great success in various roles throughout her storied career. She found her true calling working as an independent Music Supervisor and has proven consistently that her contributions translate to major box office success. She was recognized for two consecutive years (2010 and 2011) with the award for Outstanding Music Supervision in Film by Hollywood Music in Media as well as Best Music Supervision in Film in 2011 and 2012 by the Guild of Music Supervisors. Julia also serves as a Governor on the board of the Los Angeles Chapter of The Recording Academy. Aside from the accolades and awards, nothing showcases Julia’s skills and work reputation better than her consistent and continuous stream of projects. These include Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2, for which she shares an Executive Music Producer credit with Julianne Jordan. The Pitch Perfect 2 album won both an American Music Award and a Billboard Music Award for Best Soundtrack as well as a coveted Grammy nomination. Music supervision for films is one thing, music supervising for actual musicals, however, is a completely different dynamic and Julia has become a go-to expert for studios and filmmakers working in that genre. She teamed up with Julianne again for DreamWorks animated musical Trolls, working alongside Justin Timberlake as he served as Executive Music Producer and is now at work on the upcoming Warner Bros. film A Star Is Born featuring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in the leading roles with Bradley Cooper serving as the film’s director. Other upcoming films include Diary of A Wimpy Kid:The Long Haul (Fox) and Pitch Perfect 3 (Universal) due out in December 2017. Prior box office successes include the blockbuster The Devil Wears Prada (Fox), box office smashes Sex & The City (1 & 2) (New Line Cinema / Warner Bros.), the critically acclaimed drama The Blind Side (Alcon/Warner Bros.), And So It Goes (Castle Rock Entertainment), directed by Rob Reiner and starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton, the Oscar-nominated (Best Song) and Grammy Nominated (Best Soundtrack) August Rush (Warner Bros.), and others. Prior to her music supervision career, Julia was the Sr. Vice President of Music for MGM Pictures, overseeing such films as Be Cool, Beauty Shop and the remake of The Pink Panther. Before working at MGM, she was the Vice President of Soundtracks at EMI Records. In this role she oversaw soundtracks for all the labels under the EMI umbrella including Capitol, Virgin, Priority and Blue Note records. Prior to EMI, Julia spent four years as the Vice President of Music for Twentieth Century Fox, Fox 2000, Fox Searchlight and Fox Animation film divisions. She was the music executive on projects including Daredevil, Unfaithful and The Banger Sisters. Before joining Fox, Julia was the Director of Soundtracks for Capitol Records and was instrumental in the creation of numerous soundtrack albums. Throughout her career in the business, she has also been a music editor, co-owner of an independent record label and an agent for film composers.
