AIM’s annual sync licensing conference returns to London on 20th November 2017 in association with DISCO, with a host of top industry figures from the worlds of TV, film, advertising and games lined up to speak. Having sold-out for the last 7 years, AIM’s ever-popular Sync Licensing conference returns, a great event for labels, self-releasing artists, music supervisors, publishers and more.
The evening will open with a special keynote interview with Zach Cowie, Emmy-nominated Music Supervisor on hit shows and films including Master of None, Celeste & Jesse Forever, The Little Hours and State Like Sleep. Zach began his career working for independent labels including Touch & Go, Drag City and Sub Pop, so brings a unique insight on bringing independent music and visual media together. Zach also DJs internationally, often with DJ partner Elijah Wood under the ‘Wooden Wisdom’ moniker. Zach will be interviewed by David McGinnis, head of renowned publishers Mute Song.
A panel discussion on synchronisation licensing will follow the keynote, exploring how to get independent music on TV, adverts, film and video games. Debate will cover the following areas:
– The process involved in placing a track
– What makes a track ‘sync-able’?
– What can labels do to improve their chance of achieving sync licences for their artists?
– What types of deal can be done? What kind of figures are involved?
– How is the sync licensing business changing?
– What are the Music Supervisors working on and looking for right now?
Panelists confirmed include:
- Verity Griffiths, Head of Sync, Cooking Vinyl
- Sian Rogers, Music Supervisor, SIREN
- Zach Cowie, Music Supervisor ‘Master of None’
- Rachel Menzies, Music Supervisor, Native Music Supervision
- Claire Freeman, Music Supervisor, Crown Talent & Media Group
- Alex Lodge, Director, Thirty Two Music
- Bonnie Reilly, Music Supervisor, VICE
The panel will then take part in a listening session, with 10 tracks played and discussed from those submitted by audience members. Panelists will consider the sync suitability of the tracks and offer general advice to the labels on syncing the tracks. The evening will end with networking drinks. Book before November 10th to submit a track for the listening session.
The event will be held from 5.30pm-10pm on 20th November 2017 at Proud Camden, The Horse Hospital, The Stables Market, Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8AH.
