AIM’s annual sync licensing master class is to return to London on 26th January 2015, with a host of top industry figures from the worlds of TV, film, advertising and games lined up to speak. Tickets are available now from www.musicindie.com/sync2015.
The evening will open with a special keynote interview with Frankie Pine, music supervisor on hit shows including Nashville, Ugly Betty, The Newsroom and Brothers & Sisters. Frankie’s career as one of the top music supervisors in the industry has also seen her work on top Hollywood movies including Oceans 11, 12 and 13, Traffic and Magic Mike.
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?
Panelists confirmed include:
- Kate Young, Soho Music Group (Music Supervisor for ads)
- Sarah Bridge (Music Supervisor for ads, films & TV)

The panel, chaired by Simon Raymonde of AIM member label Bella Union and Cocteau Twins, 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.
