NARIP Webinar: After The Synch
FREE for NARIP Members
Thu Apr 23, 1pm PST
Live Streamed

It's exciting when you find out your song will be used in a TV show or film or commercial, whether it's your first time or your 101st time.  Just knowing your music will be heard by thousands and potentially more may be as exciting as making money. This is where most rights holders stop thinking about their placement. But there is so much more that can and SHOULD happen after the synch that can make more money and save you a lot of grief. Join us at this NARIP program to hear how expert music and entertainment attorney Sindee Levin creates more value from synch for her  clients and how you can, too.

FREE for NARIP members, non-members welcome.  Attend via Zoom.

COVID-19 Resources For The Creative Community

Thanks to CreativeFuture for assembling these

The Directors Guild of America (DGA) has an easy-to-follow snapshot guide for creative professionals who have lost current or upcoming full- or part-time work and need to apply for government assistance.
The Motion Picture and Television Fund has unveiled an array of support services, ranging from a COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to an intake line offering sympathy and guidance.
The Actors Fund is a one-stop shop for members seeking financial assistance from the Actors’ Equity Association (AEA), the American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA), the International Cinematographers Guild (Local 600), the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), the Producers Guild of America PGA), and SAG-AFTRA. If you are not a union member, you can still apply to receive help from The Actors Fund.
An array of music community partners launched, an online resource offering information on receiving unemployment and small business loans, as well as a roundup of organizations providing relief and potential grants.
Music industry workers “whose creative practices and incomes are being adversely impacted by COVID-19” can apply for financial relief through the Recording Academy’s relief fund.
This is what small businesses need to know about applying for assistance under the CARES Act.

And this is what nonprofit individuals and organizations need to know.

Robust technology solutions for nonprofits have never been more important. TechSoup is here to help equip them.
