EVENTS: Panel Discussion: Musicians, Filmmakers, and Music Supervisors: Working Together on Original Scores and Placements
Music makes a world of difference to every film, but navigating the ins and outs of music placement can be a challenge for both filmmakers and musicians. The panel discussion will explore both ends of the spectrum-what musicians need to know about placing music and what filmmakers needs to know about how to find the right music and the legalities around music usage.
