Licensing music to TV, film, adverts and video games is a lucrative and crucial income stream for many independent labels.  It's an important area of business to master, and this event will give you the knowledge, tips and music supervisor contacts needed to succeed.

Having sold-out in both 2011 and 2012, AIM's ever-popular Sync Licensing conference returns on 28th February 2013 in association with Synchtank. 

This year the event will open with a keynote interview with Neophonic's PJ Bloom, music supervisor on Glee.  PJ’s career as one of the top music supervisors in the industry has seen him create and produce soundtracks for over fifty films, hundreds of television episodes, video games, adverts and even amusement park rides. Music Week’s Tom Pakinkis will interview PJ; exploring his illustrious career, how he chooses music and what music he’s looking for right now.

There will then be a panel discussion featuring experts on synchronisation from the worlds of TV, adverts, films and video games. The panel will discuss the following key topics:

* The process involved in placing a track
* What makes a track 'sync-able'?
* What syncs have they done recently, and what are they looking for right now?
* What can labels do to improve their chance of achieving sync licences for their artists?
* How are deals done, and what sort of figures are involved?
* How is the sync licensing business changing?

The panel will then participate in a listening session, during which 10 tracks submitted by attending labels will be played, with the panel offering advice and suggestions on how they might be used and how to get them sync'd.

Speakers already confirmed include:

· Sergio Pimentel (Music Licensing Director, Nimrod Productions - games)

· Will Quiney (Music Supervisor, Vamanos Music - film trailers and films - including 'Kick Ass')

· Sophie Urquhart (Music Supervisor, Tin Drum Music - adverts, TV and film)

· Nick Angel (Music Supervisor, Working Title Films - 'Billy Elliot', 'Hot Fuzz', 'I Give it A Year')

· Alex Hancock (Music Supervisor for TV - 'Skins', 'Misfits', 'Youngers')

· David McGinnis (Music & Media Manager, Mute)

· PJ Bloom (Music Supervisor, Neophonic)

· Simon Raymonde  (Bella Union) - Chair

All attending labels will be asked to submit 1 track that will be considered for a shortlist of 10 that will be discussed on the evening in terms of their sync suitability, details will be provided following booking confirmations. The evening will conclude with networking drinks - giving all labels the chance to meet the speakers.
