Market Music For Film & TV 2009: LA, NY, TX, AZ programs *Bundle*
Four (4) How To Market & License Music For Film & TV panel discussions. NARIP produces programs on the same topic in different NARIP chapters featuring local (and imported) executives in every city. This bundle contains 4 programs featuring 14 world-class music supervisors and licensing experts from New York, Los Angeles, Houston and Phoenix.
With declining record sales, the focus on placing music in film, TV and other media has skyrocketed. Placements are the new coin of the realm, and in this latest of NARIP’s “Art of the Music Deal” series, three experts face off in a live negotiation of key deal points and contractual issues in a music license agreement. Also discussed: marketing music for film and TV to make it more attractive to buyers, where to find them and how to put yourself in line for the most favorable possible deal. These experts come together to give you the inside track on major deal points, what they mean and what leverage you have to negotiate the best possible deal.
Most people think they can just hand a negotiation to a lawyer, and leave it at that. But as a professional, you need to be aware of the process and deal points, too, and what the short- and long-term implications to your artists’ careers may be. Most importantly, you will see HOW a license deal is negotiated and be involved in the process.
