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 over 200 placements to date. We limit enrollment to just 16 people per session, this guarantees that registrants meet and get face-time with our guest. Registrants also get a brief of the guest supervisor’s CURRENT music needs, a chance to pitch plus immediate feedback at each session, taking 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 get them licensed.
Placements secured and professional relationships formed through NARIPs music supervisor sessions have earned praise and many placements! See TESTIMONIALS and PLACEMENTS sections below.
ABOUT ZACH POLLAKOFF
Zachary Pollakoff is VP and Senior Music Producer
at GREY, famously effective since 1917. Born in Chicago and raised in the ‘burbs, Zach was a music
person from early on. Though an avid live music fan and in bands
throughout Junior High and High School, it was in college at Indiana
University when it really became his life. As a DJ–and later the General
Manager–at student station, WIUX, he learned about more about music than
ever before. He helped the station make the move to FM and then fought
alongside state legislators to keep them there. After a stint of LPFM
advocacy, Pollakoff moved to Brooklyn to work for
indie giant, Beggars Group/Matador Records as a radio and video
promoter. From Beggars, Pollakoff proudly founded Twosyllable Records, a
finely curated collection of some of his favorite young artists.
Later that year, while working on supervising a film–and founding his
band, Eastern Midwestern – Pollakoff was introduced to the advertising
industry. He spent a few years working at music and film production
companies with some amazingly talented people before landing at Grey
Group in 2010. At Grey, Pollakoff has worked closely on
Cannes-Lion-winning work for DirecTV, E*Trade and the NFL; in 2013 won a
National Emmy for his work on original music for Canon “Inspired”; and
this year, a Titanium Lion for Unload Your 401k.
