George Lucas was right when he said “The sound and music are 50% of the entertainment in a movie.” Hire a composer or use licensed music? What clearances and sets of rights do I need, and for how long and how much will they cost? Should I get Festival rights? What makes a film’s soundtrack commercially successful? How do I find a Composer and or a Music Supervisor? These questions and all of yours will be answered. Presented by the Film Musicians Secondary Markets Fund.
