The public is invited to the free New Heights Panel Discussion “Music Supervisors: What They Do and What They Are Looking For.”
The discussion will include a three-person panel featuring music supervisors who have worked with big Hollywood studios such as The Walt Disney Company and world-renowned artists such as Tom Petty and Carlos Santana. Panelists Bambi Moé, Scot Peeples and Joann LeDesma will discuss tips on how artists can get their songs placed in films and TV shows, as well as current industry trends.
Music placement can make or break the scene and music supervisors collaborate with directors, producers and composers to make sure the perfect music is matched to pivotal moments in films and TV. Recently, for the first time ever, the TV Academy has recognized Music Supervision with its own award category at the Emmy Awards.
