Bloom, Bridget O’Gara

Bridget began her career as a Soundtrack Coordinator for Blue Focus Management, one of the premier Film & Television Music Agencies in Hollywood, contributing to the advancement of many well-known composers. In 2001, Bridget was recruited by DreamWorks Music Publishing to coordinate their then burgeoning Film & Television Music Department. There, Bridget played an essential creative and administrative role working with songwriters and spearheading efforts to exploit the entire DreamWorks catalogue of songs. Bridget remained a key figure in the management of the DreamWorks catalogue for the next eight (8) years, and was promoted to VP of Film & Television at Dimensional Music Publishing in 2005 and continued on in the VP position with S1 Songs America. In January 2009 and after weathering two sales, Bridget left the corporate sector and founded The Cellar Music.
