NARIP Trailer Music Supervisor Session
Intimate Meeting & Pitch Session With
Ant Farm’s Brian Murphy
on Wednesday, April 1, 2015
Brian Murphy is our special guest at this NARIP Trailer Music Supervisor Session in Los Angeles.
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 them for current opportunities.
Trailers have skyrocketed in recent years as an important and lucrative vehicle for music licensing. Synch fees for music in trailers tend to be larger because the rights requested tend to be more broad (worldwide, in perpetuity, used in every possible media). Also, trailers are typically part of a film’s marketing budget rather than its music budget, with film marketing budgets almost always many times larger than music budgets. One senior music executive at Fox Studios says that the music budget for a film is rarely larger than 3% of its overall budget, if that.
ABOUT BRIAN MURPHY
Brian Murphy is a music supervisor at Ant Farm, one of the industry’s foremost film and theatrical marketing agencies, where he spends his days (and some nights) selecting music for some of the industry’s biggest blockbusters and global marketing campaigns as well as for independent projects. After graduating from Manhattan College he moved west to work at Mojo LLC, a successful trailer house, where he assisted and learned from two well respected music supervisors on major theatrical campaigns such as Harry Potter, Crazy Stupid Love, SuckerPunch, Green Lantern and Hunger Games among others. He moved to Ant Farm where he now works on campaigns for theatrical, TV
promotional spots and video games. Recent campaigns include
Transformers, American Hustle, Wolf of Wall Street, Taken 3, The
Gambler, Anchorman, Edge Of Tomorrow & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Recent video game campaigns include Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed, Call Of Duty and Watch Dogs. He enjoys placing major and indie artists in projects like Laggies, Star Trek Into the Darkness, Serena, Davinci’s Demons, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Call Of Duty: Ghosts. In his off hours he enjoys drawing, hanging out with friends and going to the movies.
Come meet this career-maker.
