This audio program is a recording of NARIP’s Synch Agent Pitch Session with SynchStories’ Cassie Lord.

You will hear her reactions and live feedback to cues and song snippets, and the key components of a hit. This is invaluable to understand her needs, interests and preferences, and you will hear exactly what she is looking for now and for ongoing projects, and the types of artists she chooses to work with and how she develops a relationship with them. You will also hear her submission preferences, what works and what doesn’t, and most important, WHY. More topics include trends in synch licensing and agent deals, copyright ownership, and rights retention.

Synch Agent: A synchronization or “synch” agent represents music copyrights – either the composition, the sound recordings, or both.  They pitch music to buyers and their representatives, including to music supervisors.  Synch agents are typically compensated on a commission basis and do not own or control the copyrights they represent.  While synch agents usually focus on entertainment and media exploitations, traditional songplugger services also include placement of represented songs with recording artists.
