Three successful music supervisors for film, TV and multimedia will share tips on how to get music placed in soundtracks as part of a special panel discussion and Q&A session at The Centre in Santa Clarita on Wednesday, August 9 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Part of the “New Heights Artist Development Series” of panels and events hosted by the city of Santa Clarita’s Arts & Entertainment crew, the Music Supervisors panel is free and open to the public.
Music supervisors are the often unheralded architects of movie soundtracks, the skilled specialists who match music to moments in films and TV, and help build our favorite movie music track by track.
The panelists will discuss tips on how to get your songs placed, as well as current industry trends.
