Music supervisors at work..!

Synch og placements er jo efterhånden blevet "det nye sort", og det er blevet et område, som vi herhjemme er ret gode til - også internationalt. Men hvordan arbejder music supervisors egentlig? Få svaret på årets SPOT Festival - Music, Interactive & Films 2014, når Promus inviterer til seminaret, "Music Supervisors At Work - Or How Do You Work As A Music Supervisor?"

Her vil en "benhård" kvartet bestående af:

Nora Felder, Picture Music, Los Angeles
Chris Clark fra Leo Burnett - Chicago
Andrea von Foerster fra Firestarter - Los Angeles
Andrew Kahn fra Good Ear - Brooklyn

- fortælle om deres arbejde med at få musikken placeret, synch'et, matchet m.v. Alle har forskellige indgangsvinkler, så vi kommer hele paletten rundt fra "køb og salg" til film/trailer-området, TV/film, og reklamebureauernes arbejde fra begge sider af bordet.
