VQ Creative’s Vince Quintero, our guest at NARIP’s Synch Agent Pitch Session earlier this year, has signed another NARIP member (see post about Kurt Bordeaux’s signing). Attendees presented music to Quintero for his projects and films, and for representation.
This brings the number of signings from NARIP Synch Agent Pitch Sessions to nineteen (19), Sessions which are just the latest in a long list of successes that benefit creators and their business counterparts.
NARIP Member Kevin “Black O” Clements is one-half of the production-writer duo BrosClem together with his brother Abram “The Imaj” Clements. The artist Penn, signed to their production company, is now also signed and officially represented by Quintero – congrats!
Based in Los Angeles, the BrosClem are both musicians for over 20 years, Abram on keyboards and Kevin on drums. Together they produce hip-hop, R&B, and pop music, and have written for a number of artists.
Quintero – a long time fixture of the music business – gets 6 to 12 briefs a day, so the probability of placement for Penn has just increased exponentially.
Top tips for marketing music: Quintero tells us music supervisors like to get music first, so “the fresher, the better” – unreleased music tends to be more place-able and attractive for this reason. Supervisors also like music beds or instrumentals, as these don’t conflict with dialog and are easier to place.
Thank you for making time for our session Vince!
