The Not So Sexy Side Of Music For Film & TV
    You have songs in your film that you need to license, but you have no idea how to get a quote, who to ask, and where to go. Sound familiar? Nowadays, independent filmmakers have to wear many hats, and understanding the basics of music licensing are a must. Whether you are submitting a project to festivals, streaming online or seeking distribution, music clearance is essential (YES, even if the artist says it’s OK).

    In the world of licensing music for Film & TV, the sexy side, or creative side, seems to get a lot of the attention whereas the not-so-sexy side, or the business side, is somewhat daunting and unfamiliar. This panel will focus on making the business side of music in film more sexy and appealing. The panelists will discuss the many issues that one can encounter when clearing and licensing music, including: best practices to follow, avoiding disputes, resolving misunderstandings and possible legal action, and all of the paperwork required for your deliverables package.
