Presented by The Sound Pound’s Managing Director Tyler McLoughlan and Brisbane Composer Ack Kinmonth.

Music is an integral part of the screen experience, yet it can often be a daunting and difficult area for screen practitioners in terms of sourcing music and composers, getting the right creative fit, and ensuring the correct clearances are in place. Needing to get it done on time and in budget can add further challenges. This session is designed to introduce key music copyright concepts, demystify the permissions and paperwork process, identify key and dependable sources of music, cut through the myths and misnomers that surround music use, and provide participants with a clear understanding of how to approach music needs for productions large and small. The session will also cover how to choose, brief and work with a composer with insights from internationally acclaimed local composer Ack Kinmonth.

Topics covered at the workshop will include:

* Intro to copyright
* Music – the two sides of copyright in a song
* Identifying owners of music copyright
* Permissions, process and paperwork
* Budgeting
* The music options:
– production music
– independent music
– music signed to a music publisher and/or record label
– composed music – how to choose, brief and work with a composer
* DIY or music licensing agent/supervisor?
* Common music mistakes to avoid
