Alexandra Patsavas is our special guest at this NARIP Film & TV Music Supervisor Session in Los Angeles. Alexandra is known for her music supervision on the TV shows Grey’s Anatomy, Mad Men, Supernatural, Hart Of Dixie, Scandal, Suburgatory, and The Carrie Diaries, and is currently music supervising the feature film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.


Alexandra Patsavas – owner of Chop Shop Music Supervision – got her start in the music business as a rock promoter in Champaign, Illinois. She moved to Los Angeles in 1990 and worked in the Film / TV department at BMI. She then moved on in 1994 to work for Roger Corman at Concorde Films, where she was music coordinator and supervisor on over 50 B-movie classics in a three-year span.

After her stint at Concorde, Alexandra started her own company, Chop Shop Music Supervision, where she music supervised the TV shows Roswell, Carnivale, Boston Public, Fastlane, The OC, Without A Trace, Numb3rs, Chuck, and the films The Invisible, The Twilight Saga, A Better Life, Water For Elephants, The Dilemma, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Warm Bodies, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

She produced the soundtracks for Mad Men, Grey’s Anatomy, The OC, Rescue Me, Gossip Girl, Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The critically acclaimed soundtracks for Twilight, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and Grey’s Anatomy Volume 2 were each nominated for a Grammy.

Alexandra has been profiled in Wired, Glamour, The New York Post, The Los Angeles Times, In Style, The Chicago Sun-Times, The Chicago Tribune, Elle, Jane, Billboard, Giant and in The New York Times, on CNBC and MTV. She was named by Advertising Age as Entertainment Marketer of the Year, The Los Angeles Times as one of The West 100, Variety as one of fifty honorees for their annual Women’s Impact Report, Fast Company as one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business, and as one of Billboard’s Top Women In Music.

Come meet this career-maker.


NARIP’s small sessions (limited enrollment of 16 people per session) guarantee face-time with our guest, registrants get brief of supervisor’s CURRENT music needs, a chance to pitch plus immediate feedback. You get to meet and pitch our guest for current opportunities on the spot, receiving instant feedback as to whether a song or cue is appropriate or not, and most importantly, WHY. This feedback makes better pitches – and ultimately, placements – possible. Participants even have the opportunity to re-work music to better fit a supervisor’s needs.

Placements secured and professional relationships formed through NARIP”s music supervisor sessions have earned praise and and placements! See TESTIMONIALS and PLACEMENTS sections below.
