NARIP Music Supervisor Sessions
Intimate Meetings & Pitch Sessions with Top Music Supervisors
Session with mOcean’s Sanaz Lavaedian
on Thursday, May 23, 2013
at SESAC, Inc. in Los Angeles
Top-rated Trailer Music Supervisor Sanaz Lavaedian is our special guest at this NARIP Music Supervisor Session in LA. Lavaedian commissions, licenses and places music for global feature film trailer campaigns for the world’s biggest blockbusters as well as for independent films, global advertising campaigns and television. Limited enrollment of 16 people per session guarantees face-time with him, registrants get brief of her CURRENT music needs prior to the session to help them better prepare, a chance to pitch plus immediate feedback from her to YOUR material. In NARIP’s intimate session, you get to meet and pitch her for current opportunities.
Trailers – which represents a large part of Lavaedian’s client work – 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.
