NARIP Music Supervisor Sessions:
Intimate Pitch Meetings With Music Supervisors
from Film & TV Trailer Houses
with High Bias Industries Danny Exum
on Thursday, July 10, 2014
in Los Angeles, CA
High Bias’s Danny Exum 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.
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 with the best trailer house music supervisors in the business.
ABOUT DANNY EXUM
Danny got his start in the music industry as a DJ and live mix engineer at the esteemed 88.9 WERS in Boston, before bolting westwards to work at EMI’s Film/TV department. Since those days he has built a strong career as a Music Supervisor for features, television and theatrical marketing working with agencies Wild Card, mOcean, Zealot, Vibe, Buddha Jones, Seismic, and BLT. In addition to his work with High Bias, Danny is Director, Music Supervision & Business Development of The Hit House. Recent credits include
Edge of Tomorrow, Lone Survivor, Dark Souls 2 (video game), Man of Steel and True Detective.
OVER 150 PLACEMENTS FROM NARIP MUSIC SUPERVISOR SESSIONS
Our small format works! NARIP Session Participants have placed over 150 tracks as a direct result of NARIP Sessions, most recently in a trailer for the Warner Bros. film Grudge Match starring Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone.
DON’T GET LOST IN THE CROWD : SMALL IS THE NEW BIG
NARIP Sessions are deliberately kept small, which is why they work so well and why participants have enjoyed so many placements. Enrollment at this Session is limited to 16 people who wish to pitch. Pitch registrants get face-time with Rachel, a brief of our guest’s CURRENT music needs prior to the session to help them prepare, time to pitch plus immediate feedback from her. Meet and pitch Rachel for current opportunities.
This event also includes general admission seating for those who wish to attend and observe, but not pitch. General admission registrants will have an opportunity to hear the panel discussion portion of the program, ask questions and meet Paul.
Placements secured and professional relationships formed through NARIPs music supervisor sessions have earned praise and placements! See TESTIMONIALS and PLACEMENTS sections below.
