Music supervisors are becoming more and more relevant in today’s industry. Artists and publishers are working to license songs to film, television, advertisements, video games, ring tones, and other new media outlets to offset declining album sales and keep businesses afloat. This panel will discuss the business and artistic aspects of music supervision, including how to get your music placed, and the financial and promotional rewards of licensing (or lack thereof). The workshop will help participants learn to find opportunities, strike good deals, and track and collect royalties.
